The five people are "creepers", the slang term for urban explorers: city archeologists with a passion for investigating abandoned buildings and their dying secrets. On this evening, they are joined by a reporter who wants to profile them - anonymously, as this is highly illegal activity - for a New York Times article.
Frank Balenger, a sandy-haired, broad-shouldered reporter with a decided air of mystery about him, isn't looking for just a story, however. And after the group enters the rat-infested tunnel leading to the hotel, it becomes clear that he will get much more than he bargained for. Danger, terror, and death await the creepers in a place ravaged by time and redolent of evil.

"Morrell delivers first-rate, suspenseful storytelling once again." (Publishers Weekly)
"Lawlor fills the listener's ears with heart-stopping terror. Definitely not for the timid." (AudioFile)
Creepers is a good story with some nice twist and turns. Just creepy enough to keep hard core horror readers interested but not much gore for the squeemish.
Love scary stories and thrillers.
It had some good parts. I felt the beginning was too slow for me. It kept dragging on. The last third of the book held the most intensity, but by then I didn't care as much. I like fast paced action. This was not it.
I loved the idea around this book; investigating an old house and finding out secrets...and the story stayed riveting three quarters of the way through..I wanted to know more aobut each mystery...but then it just seemed to just grind away...
