Audie Award Nominee, Science Fiction, 2013
Padlocked doors. Strange light fixtures. Mutant cockroaches.
There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s. Because every room in this old Los Angeles brownstone has a mystery or two. Mysteries that stretch back over a hundred years. Some of them are in plain sight. Some are behind locked doors. And all together these mysteries could mean the end of Nate and his friends. Or the end of everything....

"A riveting apocalyptic mystery in the style of LOST." (Craig DiLouie, author of The Infection and The Killing Floor)
"A wholly original story that weaves together mystery and the apocalypse like a finely tuned band." (Evan Roy, Bricks of the Dead)
I would only recommend a book with a 4 or higher rating
I would only recomend a book that i give a 5
I love a good book, but never have time to sit and read. Audible is wonderful for people like me. Even though my kids think I am a nerd for always having my headphones on, someday they will wish their college books were on audible!
This book was different for me. I am still not sure how I feel about it. It did keep me listening, I am just not much of a scifi person.
Say something about yourself!
A twist a end I didn't see coming.
One of the main characters dies. :(
First Peter Cline book
Ray Porter is a great reader!!! Voice is smooth and easy to listen to. Even the females voices are easy to hear. That was one of the reasons I choose this book.
Yes just to see that old building. The mystery of it!
Prob won't tell all my friends about this book. It was missing a WOW factor. I did come to like all the characters tho. Was very glad clines informed us of whats in store for them.
Suggest waiting for this one to go on sale. Perhaps in a BOGO. That would be better then a credit spent.
Enjoy the adventure
A mystery in the paranormal genera. The author was able to get me to care about the main characters and to love hating the villains. Saddly, not everyone makes it to the end.
I most enjoyed the witty repartee among the characters which added spice to the story.
All of them in this book
Everything Ray does is a master piece
Too many to mention
Another of the better books I have listened to
This was a fast-paced, original story. I was completely surprised by the story, in a good way. Thoroughly enjoyed.
anyone who likes sci-fi stories....thought this book was more about scary than outerspace. not really my thing
no....but he did very good
not really for me
The characters combined with the story and narration made this a great sci fi listen.
It will have you sitting on the edge of your seat.
Somewhere in the middle.
The narrator had a real challenge giving a distinctive voice to each of the characters. He did a good job with this.
Cartoon characters. Pedestrian writing. Good story.
I loved the concept of the book. It had a great start and it was overall a good read.
The ending was good. However some of the things that went on in the last part of the book were too strange for me. It was a bit "Out there"
Great performance. I would listen to him again.
