Publisher's Summary

Aspiring model Allison Parker finally moves into her dream apartment: a brownstone on Manhattan's Upper West Side. But her perfect home quickly turns hellish. The building is filled with a cast of sinister tenants, including a reclusive blind priest, who seems to watch her day and night through an upstairs window. Eventually, Allison starts hearing strange noises from the empty apartment above hers. Before long, she uncovers the building's demonic secret and is plunged into a nightmare of sinful misdeeds and boundless evil. In the tradition of Rosemary's Baby, this gripping novel was adapted into a feature film starring Ava Gardner, Cristina Raines, and Chris Sarandon. The Sentinel is classic horror at its best.

    Story
    "Rosemary's Baby, Move Over!"

    This was a thrilling story and a great listening experience. You think you know where it's going - ha! Just wait! I was thoroughly pulled in by the mysterious atmosphere and felt I was living in that crazy world with Allison.

    The characters were vividly brought to life by the great narration. Her reading enhanced the writing for me - she found the perfect pace and tone for each scene. The birthday party, in particular, was fabulous, with a room full of eccentric characters.

    Bravo on all counts. I highly recommend.

    Story
    "Listen with the Lights On"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Sentinel to be better than the print version?

    Horror stories naturally lend themselves told aloud and this is no exception. Hearing this, instead of reading it, makes you feel like someone is in the room -- or the car which is where I listened to The Sentinel -- and it adds to the level of unease that a story like this is meant to evoke.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sentinel?

    When the other tenants of the building are introduced, you can feel the story taking a turn down a sinister path. The characters add to the ambiance and I swear it feels like the lights dim.


    What about Mary Murphy’s performance did you like?

    I very much enjoyed the narrator who really showed a wide range of vocal qualities. Her pace and intonations added texture to the story, helping to bring to life the characters and the dark world they inhabit in smart detail.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Stay Away from the Upper West Side.


    Any additional comments?

    A great story for audio-book aficionados of all kinds, not just horror story fans.

    "Hidden Treasure"

    I've read a few classic horror novels and been disappointed, but this one was great! Suspenseful, and scary with the added strangeness and mystery of Christianity. Great story!

    Story
    "The narrator..."

    This audio would have been much better with a different narrator. She spoke fast with not much expression and the main character's voice was annoying and at times childish. Even so, the story was good with a surprise ending.
