Publisher's Summary

Alone in the dark, Margie must face unimaginable terror. Is this thing that haunts her nights a ghost, or is it something worse?  

Jesse and Gail are just starting their paranormal investigations business. This first case should be easy, and they can’t wait to get started. Their client is claiming a spirit is assaulting her - touching her and hounding her - and that she is never alone in her house. 

Gail isn’t convinced this is a haunting. Tales of flying blue lights and whispers in the night make her think that Margie is imagining things, especially when she learns what happened to her husband. Only Jesse has heard of such cases. Spirit orbs are well-documented, and cases of spiritual assault have been seen worldwide. He knows they can get very nasty, very fast. 

When they visit Margie's home, it is not the normal haunted house but a quiet and light bungalow. Yet, as soon as they enter, they sense a strong and dark force. Something is lurking in this quiet suburb, terrorizing Margie and pushing her to the very edge of sanity.  

What does it want? Why is it here? 

Can this dark man be beaten, or have they taken on more than they can handle? 

This audiobook is part of the Spirit Guide series of audiobooks, but each audiobook is completely standalone, and they can be listened to in any order. Publishing order: The Haunting of Seafield House, Called from Beyond.

Oldfield Drive Horror

This definitely wasn’t Ed and Loraine, more like an aspiring Ed and Loraine couple. Even with this being their first paying client, it played out pretty good. The interaction between both Jesse and Gail was what I enjoyed the most and I enjoyed their story more than the haunt itself. I didn’t like Jesse that much as he was a bit of a fool and his amateurish ghost hunting clearly shows. Gail was a bit better, but I felt they went back and forth at each situation as who was making the mistakes, again this is their first paying client. So as ghost hunters they both need experience, but Jesse clearly loves Gail and as a character driven love bird story this hit its mark. As a scary haunted ghost story it tapped its mark.
The unraveling of the haunt was quite neat. Getting all the little puzzle pieces fit and discovering everything about the poltergeist was a fun road. I never really felt there was a whole lot of haunting and would say that this is safe for people who are not big into haunted ghost stories. I have to say I believe orbs are always dust or a bug so starting out the story discussing orbs immediately set the tone for me that this was not something I needed the lights on for. What this lacks in scares, it makes up in originality. * POTENTIAL SPOILER ALERT* I really liked the snow globe aspect, the shop keep selling haunted items, and it totally gave me a Beetleguese living on the miniature town vibe. *SPOILER ALERT OVER*
I’m a sucker for accents so I was happy to listen to Jennifer Gilmour tell me this story. She added inflection in her tone during excited times, although it wasn’t enough to really get me to the I'm scared point, more just a little concerned. Since this is a series and the ending leaves it open for a next chapter I hope Gilmour continues narrating these stories as I want to hear where that takes Jesse and Gail.

Quality Paranormal Content!

It is exceedingly easy to come up with a tired and cliched idea for a ghost story, as proven by a large number of the stories I have read over the years. However, "DarkMan: The Haunting of Oldfield Drive," had a backstory and a unique take that I have never come across! I am always excited and impressed when this happens and Caroline Clark absolutely accomplished that feat here. This fairly short, quick listen would be good for any listeners who enjoy paranormal content with a big dollop of fun/silliness! Jennifer Gilmour did a great job with bringing the characters to life.

Great spooky story

This was a great short listen of the paranormal. I love ghost stories.. This story had a nice little twist to it. The narration was great as well.

If you want a short (just over 3 1/2 hours), spooky listen, this is for you. Looking forward to listening to more

Entertaining, quick, paranormal listen...

DarkMan: The Haunting of Oldfield Drive by Caroline Clark is a quick listen, at just under four hours. It was a fun, unique listen that reminded me of some of the old time TV shows that I used to watch growing up such as Friday the 13th: The Series or on a much more comedic level, Warehouse 13. So I really enjoyed that aspect of the story. What I didn't love quite as much is that there seemed to be quite a bit of repetition in battling the spirit. I definitely would have liked to have seen a bit more depth. Jesse and Gail seem to make a good team, but Jesse get's a tad bit annoying. They're helping Margie, a woman who has been getting attacked by an apparent malevolent spirit that's been haunting and physically hurting her. Overall, this is a fun and entertaining quick listen. I would definitely like to check out other books in the series as well.

Jennifer Gilmour did a good job narrating this story. My only issue with it is that most of this story seemed to come from Jesse's point of view and it may have been better read by a male narrator. Though looking at the other book in this series on Audible, it seems as though Jennifer Gilmour narrated that one too, so I understand this choice for continuity's sake. Ms. Gilmour did a good job though and her accent was pleasant and her narration gave life to the characters.

GREAT HORROR PARANORMAL TALE!!

I've probably seen 80% of the horror movies out there, and have read a TON of books on the subject, and love the Warrens. So, I've seen and read just about all of it, but genuinely liked with this one! I loved the story, the characters, the writing and the narration. It's not super-involved due to length, but it's a great story and well done. Sinister, creepy, hauntingly good. Worth the read. :)

A solid ghost story

This story is a bit short, but quite well done. It is very creepy and has wonderful atmosphere highlighted by the narrator. She does a great job of making this story feel spooky and brings the book to life in your imagination. All in all, I think this book is worth checking out.

short but spooky

I really enjoyed this book. It is rather short but gets right into the creepiness right off the bat and stays there all the way through.

In the book Margie is alone with her husbands recent passing, or is she alone. Each night a vicious spirit attacks Margie.

Jesse and Gail have started their own Paranormal Investigation business. They get an email from Margie asking for help with her situstion.

Gail doesn't really believe Margie is being haunted. Jesse talks her into going with him and talking to Margie to see if it a real haunting or if she is a quack. And they need their first paying client in order to kick off their business.

Once in Margie's home Gail has no choice but to believe Margie as she gets to see first hand what Margie has been going through.

Now Jesse and Gail have to figure out how to save Margie and to find out who the spirit is and why he is tormenting and torturing Margie.

Fascinating dark tale

When Margie starts showing physical proof of being tormented by a paranormal presence, she reluctantly turns to Jesse and Gail for help. Having recently lost her husband, Jesse and Gail believe that is the entity Margie is sensing. However, as soon as they begin their investigation into the haunting, they realize there is something more dangerous and sinister than a husband trying to reach out from beyond.

I finished the audiobook in one day, hooked by the spooky plot and likable characters. The narrator did a good job telling the story and bringing the characters to life.

I will be on the lookout for other stories from this author.

Poltergeist!

This haunted house/ghost story grabbed my attention from the very beginning. I do not listen to many ghost stories, but this one pulled me in. I loved the twists the author, Caroline Clark wove into the book. Jennifer Gilmour did a great performance and added the right emotions.She also had distinguished voices for various characters. I found this book to be a standalone listen and part of a series. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would listen to more books by this author and narrator. I thought the author did a great job with the imagery in this book and told some interesting things about the occult and malevolent spirits.
