Publisher's Summary

How well do you know your neighbors?

Elliot Jefferson moved to the isolated Estates of North Hills to work on his sobriety and avoid other people at all costs. But when the electric transformers around the complex begin emitting a horrible buzz that he calls "the Squall", neither is easy to achieve.

Because some of his neighbors are acting strange. Twitching, fighting, and muttering about voices only they can hear.

Soon Elliot will find himself face-to-face with the worst humanity has to offer, as wives imprison husbands, children butcher parents, and those under the Squall's influence go to insane lengths to keep their secret safe. If he wants to survive, Elliot must discover the awful truth for himself, and lead a small group of innocents to safety...before they're all just as doomed as their neighbors.

Welcome to the suburbs.

In a quiet out-of-the-way suburb lies the Estates of North Hills apartment complex. Within the complex an evil change is taking place among the apartment dwellers. The electric transformers spaced around the complex are emitting an ear-splitting sound that not all of the residents can hear. The residents seemingly unaware of the sound have begun to act very strange; physical twitching, abnormal anger, and whispered comments about a voice in their head. On the other hand, the residents aware of the terrible noise have noticed this odd behavior and are becoming more and more concerned. Our heroic protagonist Elliot Jefferson has become the more-or-less leader of the aware and begun the opposition to the behavior of the others who are becoming more violent. Elliot is forced to discover what is behind his neighbor’s strange behavior and whether the horrible sound has anything to do with it. The story is quite exciting, the characters interesting, and the action keeps you riveted. The narration is well done and projects the tense atmosphere of the story. I really enjoyed this tale and will look for more from Mr. Connor. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

Brutal and realistic.

The story seems like it's something that really could happen and the violence is cringeworthy brutal. Edge of your seat suspense.

Although this book was not for me I’m sure that there are those who will enjoy it

I could see where the author was going with this book, but in my opinion he fell short of the mark. I am not adverse to violence or lewd conduct when it adds to the enjoyment of the novel. To me this book relied solely on shock value to keep you listening. If you are an animal lover I urge you not to read this book! It is very hard for me to give a negative review on a book that was gifted to me however I am compelled to do so in this case. I received this book from the author, publisher, or narrator at no cost to me all opinions are my own.
