Publisher's Summary

For more than ten years, she lay beneath the floorboards of Hill House. For more than ten years, she waited. Who was she? Who put her there? Why? Harry Starke vows to find the answers to those questions, but to do so he must embark upon an investigation that will put him and those close to him in deadly danger, take him deep into the underground city, the Dark Web, murder, organized crime, prostitution, and human trafficking. One by one, he peels back the layers, and with each one, he sinks a little deeper into the morass, the seamy underbelly of a world few know of, and even fewer want to be a part of. Hill House has many doors. None of them lead anywhere but into darkness and despair.

    Story
    "Every Picture Tells a Story, Don't It?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm a huge fan of the Harry Starke novels and audio books. I will go out on a limb and declare this to be the best of the series! Thus my favorite, ... so far. I haven't been disappointed in any yet. Plot development, characters that you care about and that are written to show dedication to solving the case.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The mystery is plausible. You see it in news headlines and tv news broadcasts every few months. Missing and exploited young people.


    Which character – as performed by Tom Lennon – was your favorite?

    The story is filled with characters that the listener comes to empathise with. Tom Lennon adds so much to work. An integral positive addition. All the performances,are note worthy in that respect.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Sadness for the victims. Anger at the responsible bad people. Satisfaction for them getting their just desserts.


    Any additional comments?

    I get immersed in each of the Harry Starke novels. Tom Lennon IS Harry Starke.

    This audiobook was provided by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review. Thank you!

    Story
    "Harry just gets better with each book"

    The beginning of this book is very atmospheric and just a little bit dark and it hooked me in straight away. Hill House was about to be demolished, some young fellas go in to help themselves to the floorboards hoping to make a bit of money by selling them. A grisly discovery is made. A body is found under the boards. The body has been there for some time and doesn't fit any of the missing persons descriptions.

    They find out that the old house was once a shelter for young people, but it's not as simple as tracing the owners. The investigations lead Harry and the police into some very disturbing situations involving some very dark and disturbing people. Yet even these people aren't quite as they seem.

    Harry comes up against an old adversary and things get violent, he is upset because his work has put his staff at risk of injury or worse. The way he deals with this particular situation gives us some real hard boiled "Harry Starke" moments, quite hair raising at times.

    Harry continues to work well with his former girlfriend the police officer Kate and I really enjoy the way she treats him, as usual, Harrys love life is perplexing him, he continues to get himself into some awkward "romantic" situations. There are some wonderfully witty interactions between Kate and Harrys newer interest, Amanda, and in this book, Amanda really steps up to the mark maybe compensating for her past mischief making.

    Each one of the Harry Starke novels has a unique plot and can from that point of view be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading them all so as to get to know the characters. It's not essential, I know, but I've enjoyed following the Kate and Amanda situation evolve, and I'm also very interested in the characters who make up Harrys staff, in each book these characters have been fleshed out a little more.

    The author has given his readers yet another excellent story.

    Narrator

    Another riveting performance by Tom Lennon who is, in my opinion, the perfect Harry. He gives each character a distinct and easily identifiable voice, something which is so important to the listener. I look forward to many more Harry Starke adventures

    Audiobook provided by the narrator, publisher or author in return for an honest review.

    "excellent read/listen"

    I switch between reading and listening. I love the Harry Stark novels. Mr. Howard's writing draws the reader in. I feel as though I'm there...... Tom Lennon's narrative is so good! His voice accompanying me home every day is a treat I look forward to. I'm going to be sad when / if the Harry Stark series ends. So please keep writing Mr. Howard and please keep reading Mr. Lennon!

    Story
    "I am hooked on Harry Starke"
    What did you love best about Hill House?

    This is the third Harry Starke Novel I have listened to. Harry is consistent, yet does evolve in each subsequent book. He is more real life, a little less Sexy, carefree and cavalier, but a better person in each new book.

    As usual the plot present by the author was a good one. You will not figure it all out before the dramatic ending. There are plenty of bad guys, enough violence, tasteful kind of off camera sex and great dialogue. Everything a good Detective mystery should have.

    I love this series and will be waiting patently for number 4 to come out.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hill House?

    The show down in the bar is a classic of its type.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Have to be Sal's demise.


    Any additional comments?

    This formula is working. The narrator is Harry Starke and I look forward to meeting both of them again very soon.
