Publisher's Summary

Dr. Veronica Glass, professor of English at the University of Washington, does not believe in ghosts. Matt Braddon, her new tenant, has returned to Seattle but can't escape from a terrible secret in his past. Now, 13-year-old Angela Harrow has run away from her bitterly fighting parents, and begs Veronica to let her stay for the Christmas holidays.

Suddenly, dangerous accidents are happening in the U. District house - whispering voices in the night, creaking floorboards with no one there, shattering glass, and chilling presences. Whatever lives on in Veronica Glass' house has found a deadly new source of power, and before Christmas morning all their lives will be changed forever.

    "Decent Story"

    I enjoyed this book despite the narrator being wishy washy. There was something about him though that held my attention. I liked the characters especially the homeless poet. While at times the story was predictable it was still enjoyable.

    "Magna Cum Laude"

    Why haven't I heard of Nick Di Martino before? I've read plenty of horror novels in my time, and this one shoots right to the top of the class. Sure, the characters are stock, the dialogue is often corny and the supernatural plot devices Di Martino employs are as original as a plagiarised essay. But who cares? The story gripped me. I cared about the characters. Di Martino, whose backgound is in drama, know how to gradually feed the breadcrumbs of a plot to the reader, how to manage the interweaving destinies of a cast of characters like a choreographer directing dancers. The homeless poet who acts as a kind of chorus to the action is a particularly deft touch. If you like Stephen King-- at least, if you like King's lightness of touch, his love of the ordinary, and his ability to paint character with a few judicious brush-strokes-- then you'll like this book, too.
