In the small village of Buffalo Brook, Vermont, stands Taylor Manse. A stately Victorian mansion built by the Reverend Michael Mariah Taylor in 1880, its living room floors stained with the blood of at least 19 people, has just been purchased by Wade and Anne Robinson. Wade, a rehabber, has purchased the manse as a fixer-upper, an investment property he hopes to flip at a large profit, as soon as the rehab is completed. What Wade was not told when he purchased the property from the TRI Group was the violent history of the manse. He also had no idea that the TRI Group was Taylor Realty Investment Group, comprised solely of the grandson of the Reverend Michael Taylor, and that he is the first owner from outside the Taylor family in the manse's 125-year existence.
But, in a town the size of Buffalo Brook, it wouldn't be long before Wade would learn of the manse's history. Now, he had just five months to finish his project or face the unsettling thought of still being there in December, the month in which all the previous murders had taken place - every 25 years. This coming December would mark the 25th anniversary of the last murders. If history could be considered a predictor of the future, he and Annie needed to be out of the manse by the end of November or face whatever came this way every two-and-a-half decades.

I read this a while ago. But I did enjoy listening to it. Was not the scariest but was good none the less, especially towards the end, I would give it a 4 star. There is good and evil (liked Eli) it was interesting concept. I will be looking in to some of his newer books as I also read The Room Beyond the Veil which was also good (not on audio though).

I wasnt sure I would enjoy this story , seems sort of run of the mill in the begining . That quickly changes as the story evolves . And for once a decent ending to a horror book .
I am at that half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lol
Alan Phillip Ormond narrates this beautifully.Wade and Anne fix houses up to re sell.This time they picked the wrong house and though they sell it and destroy it ,they will never be rid of the fall out.I loved this one!
I was given this book free for an honest review
I would, it was atmospheric and well written and at times the tension was palpable.
I liked Wade the protagonist because throughout all of the craziness he never fell into anything bad. He took it all in stride as best as anyone could expect.
I liked the voices that he gave the characters differentiating them but making sure that none of them were cartoony or anything. The sound effects in the background are good as welll.
Nothing, it fits the bill as well as anything else could..
I received this in exchange for an honest review and greatly enjoyed the experience. Recommended.
