Spanning over 100 years of mid-Michigan history, The Eaton tells the story of Sam Spicer, a young entrepreneur who purchases the dilapidated Michigan Central Railroad Depot in Eaton Rapids with the dream of opening a hot new martini bar. But when he and his friends discover an abandoned underground hotel directly beneath the property, they must discover what happened to the original guests—before their own time runs out.

Narrator was very talented. He really brought the whole thing to life! At first I was wondering why the whole "cast" of narrators wasn't listed, until I realized that it was all the same guy. Story was very good and you could tell it was well researched. The real-life historical references gave this type of horror story a bit of "Victorian sophistication" and I loved that it was about Michigan (my home state). The specific location and references to Michigan history made the story so believable, I found myself contemplating it's actual plausibility - as silly as that may seem. Great first novel! I will look forward to anything new to come from this author, as well as this narrator. Well done on both accounts.
