Publisher's Summary

What if insidious evil flourished in the one place where you feel most safe: your very own home? The chilling answer comes from New York Times best-selling master of suspense John Saul - in a new novel that makes terror a household word.

The sudden, tragic death of her husband leaves Carolyn Evans alone in New York City to raise an 11-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter on little money and even less hope. But then she meets and marries handsome, successful Anthony Fleming, who wins her heart and embraces her children. When Carolyn settles her family into Anthony’s spacious apartment on Manhattan’s Central Park West, her fears of an uncertain future give way to a sense of abundant happiness. But soon, new terrors will come home to roost in the luxurious, exclusive building named The Rockwell. Midnight voices whisper of a cruel and hungry presence that also calls The Rockwell home.

First, Carolyn’s daughter begins to suffer from recurring nightmares of strangers in her room at night. Then, her son insists that a neighbor’s recently deceased child isn’t dead at all - but being held captive somewhere in The Rockwell. And when Carolyn discovers a startling secret about Anthony’s past, it seems she, too, is falling victim to the creeping paranoia infecting her family. Should she doubt her perfect husband, their kindly fellow tenants, or her own sanity? Does someone - or something - in her new home have sinister designs on Carolyn and her children? Is her new life charmed or cursed?

Step across the threshold of The Rockwell - and into the dark realm of John Saul...in a spine-tingling novel that will haunt you wherever you live.

PLEASE NOTE: This is the abridged edition. An unabridged version is also available.

Critic Reviews

"Deeply creepy... good, drafty atmospheric horror unafraid to indulge in not-at-all-subtle gory bits." (Booklist)

Suspend Reality and Enjoy.

This is an absolutely frightening tale. I won't say more than that. If you listen to it and find anything else that gives you more chills, please let me know.

This book is trite

Much of this book is a rip off of Rosemary's Baby. I usually like John Saul, but this is one of the most predictable and obvious books I've read or heard. The characters are one dimensional, and the reader, Lee Merriweather, makes them sound like complete idiots. Pass this one up.

Pretty Good!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend if they like horror or just a dark fantasy. The story was well told, and it held my interest.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I would say the son in this novel, he was pretty much the better hero than I thought the mother was.

Which scene was your favorite?

The beginning, it was very detailed.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Be afraid of what happens after dark

Midnight Voices

This book was a waste of time, I do not recommend it to any one. The story content almost seemed stolen from the movie "Rosemary's Baby".

Skip it

I was unimpressed with this book. The narrator's voice was grating and her impressions of the other characters were even worse. The book itself was pretty lousy and left me with many unanswered questions, and not in a provocative or thought provoking way. The ending was so anti climactic, I hesitate to use the word climactic. Skip it.
