After a sudden fire leaves Matt's senile and troubled grandmother homeless, she moves in with the family. Her ceaseless demands cause unrelieved tension - and with her comes a shameful secret about her daughters that traps Matt between a dead aunt who haunts him and his own mother, who seeks redemption for her sister's sins - and her own. Matt transforms from a gregarious teenager to a hostile loner prone to fits of rage - tortured by chilling memories and haunted by nightmares.
Then a shocking tragedy shatters the family beyond repair, propelling Matt's mother and grandmother into a final, explosive confrontation...a showdown in which old wounds will be viciously torn open - and a horrific shadow from the past will spring an implacable life of its own, clawing toward Matt with the ferocious inevitability of death itself.

I should have paid better attention to the "haunt" word used in the description.
It would be unfair of me to base his performance on a story that is not my genre.
Is all of them too harsh?
If ghost stories are your thing that this book might be for you.
Storyline excellent! Narration clipped, too quick and lacking inflection. Still recommended for the story. No waste of a credit with this one.
