The gloomy Malpas Abbey has been avoided by locals for centuries. Its infamous history is marred with blood and terror.

An American television crew shows up, hoping to investigate the source of the structure's paranormal activity. Led by producer Matt McKay and paranormal expert Ted Gould, the hapless bunch enter the hellish residence only to discover that they are in way over their heads.

I enjoyed certain parts of the story but I felt like there could have been a little more in some parts and definitely a little less and others. Not a bad read And I believe once you start you will want to finish to the end. My biggest struggle was the prologue that was too long and too wordy.

Time waits for no one, including Marshall James. Now 58 and living in New York City, Marshall has outlived the expiration date he was given with a cancer diagnosis three years ago. He beat the odds, but he knows he may not beat the clock. So he’s decided to tell a story or three about some murders he was involved in back in the day. The year was 1983. The bar was the Paisley Parrot in Hollywood, a gay, mob-run dive where people came to drink and few of them remembered the night before. Marshall loves his job as a bartender there. But one night, among the regulars, a killer arrives.

It was only supposed to be a game. In a boring suburb, three lonely men seeking distractions from their monotonous routines get together in an abandoned house to play a macabre game of show-and-tell. Nothing is off-limits in their little circle - anything, no matter how depraved, is welcome...so long as it's frightening. But when one member brings what sounds like an audio recording of an actual murder to a meeting, featuring the tortured screams and pleas of an anonymous woman, the jaded club members find themselves truly rattled.
