Twenty-two-year-old Eileen goes missing while hiking in the remote Ashlough Forest. Five days later, her camera is discovered washed downriver, containing bizarre photos taken after her disappearance. Chris wants to believe Eileen is still alive. When the police search is abandoned, he and four of his friends create their own search party to scour the mountain range. As they stray farther from the hiking trails and the unsettling discoveries mount, they begin to believe they’re not alone in the forest...and that Eileen’s disappearance wasn’t an accident.

If Indiana Jones lived in the X-Files era, he might bear at least a passing resemblance to Nolan Moore - a rogue archaeologist hosting a documentary series derisively dismissed by the "real" experts, but beloved by conspiracy theorists. Nolan sets out to retrace the steps of an explorer from 1909 who claimed to have discovered a mysterious cavern high up in the ancient rock of the Grand Canyon. And, for once, he may have actually found what he seeks. Then the trip takes a nasty turn, and the cave begins turning against them in mysterious ways.

This was a great listen with interesting twists, and I particularly enjoyed the performer's accents for the different characters.
This is definitely not really similar to the movie "the descent" in case you're thinking it was by the books description. It was unique and unsettling for a closterphobic listener!

Paul Gallo saw the report on the news: a mass murderer leading police to his victims' graves in remote Dread's Hand, Alaska. It's not even a town; more like the bad memory of a town. The same bit of wilderness where his twin brother went missing a year ago. As the bodies are exhumed, Paul travels to Alaska to get closure and put his grief to rest. But the mystery is only beginning. What Paul finds are superstitious locals who talk of the devil stealing souls, and a line of wooden crosses to keep what's in the woods from coming out.

The book begins a little slowly but after the first two chapters I couldn't stop listening. I do not generally find myself creeped out but holy moly the author does such a great job of it that I can't look at the woods without my stomach turning!

The reader did a great job, but the women author than Jill's voices were nails on chalkboard.

It was a captivating story. The reader did a great child's voice and every voice other than any male parts. Other female readers have mever been so audibly weird with the male parts.
The blog posts were super annoying.

There's something wrong with Ashburn House. The ancient building has been the subject of rumours for close to a century. Its owner, Edith, refused to let guests inside and rarely visited the nearby town. Following Edith's death, her sole surviving relative, Adrienne, inherits the property. Adrienne's only possessions are a suitcase of luggage, 20 dollars, and her pet cat. Ashburn House is a lifeline she can't afford to refuse. Adrienne doesn't believe in ghosts, but it's hard to ignore the unease that grows as she explores her new home.

It was a great October read and great engaging and haunting story. The beginning is a little slow and the reveal a little meh but the writing and narrating make it great nonetheless.

In December 1975, the Lutz family moved into their new home on suburban Long Island. George and Kathleen Lutz knew that, one year earlier, Ronald DeFeo had murdered his parents, brothers, and sisters in the house, but the property - complete with boathouse and swimming pool - and the price were too good to pass up. This is the shocking true story of an American dream that turned into a nightmare beyond imagining for the Lutz family, who were forced to flee their new home in terror.

the performance was great but the story was meh. I became immensely extremely irritated at the mention of the priest. I understand the "real events" part but it did nothing to further the story and was the same thing every time and made it extremely frustrating to finish
