Publisher's Summary

In 1901, Maisie Whitmore vanished without a trace. Her neighbour David Price was blamed for her disappearance and dealt with swiftly by the village elders.

A 100 years later, number six Promised Land Lane is steeped in mystery. Urban legend says the ghost of Maisie Whitmore stalks the grounds, taking revenge on anybody who crosses her path.

Sandra Miller is a prominent reporter assigned to investigate the murder of a 12-year-old boy. She has her own history with the house. Her sister vanished from there 20 years earlier.

Caught up in the mystery of the lane, she meets David, but something about him seems familiar. 

Who is he? 

What does he know about the murders? 

And is Maisie Whitmore more than just an urban legend?

An unforgettable horror performed masterfully

A little girl was brutally tortured and murdered, transforming her into an evil monster. Decades later, she takes revenge on anyone crossing her path at Promised Land Lane.

This was an unforgettable horror! It was dark and creepy and spine chilling. I absolutely loved how the story built up as well as how the scary parts came through. The author did a fantastic job creating the right atmosphere and details for the scenes. It was very well written.

Jake performed brilliantly. His voice was perfect for the horror story adding eeriness and spookiness to the character voices as well as the narrative. I thoroughly enjoyed his performance.

I highly recommend this book, and i look forward to hearing more from both the author and narrator!

Creepy Scary

This book is creepy good. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes a book with an intense, scary plot. It is very well written and the story flows easily. It was hard for me to stop listening when I had to. I could have listened to this all at once if I had the time. The narration is also good and easy to listen to. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

Perfectly Scary

This is a first-class horror novel that would make a great film. The author uses a couple of horror tropes in a unique and ingenious way.

Horror & Mystery

I really liked this audio book and of course, anything read by Jake Urry is wonderful. He is definitely one of the best narrators out there.

I will warn you that there is some fairly extreme violence in this book that involves a child so beware.

I was provided this audio book in return for my honest opinion and review.

Creepy Story!!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Such a good book! I don't even want to talk about it too much, because it would give it away! It was creepy and gruesome, but not so much so that it made it difficult to listen. It got appropriately more gruesome as the book continued and didn't try to gross you out with shock factor. Will have to listen to this book again next Halloween!

A fun ghost story

This brings back memories of ghost stories by the fire when I was young. And as long as the story kept to the spooky parts, it was great. Occasionally it seemed like it wanted to shift to a romance, and then it really felt forced, like it was trying to make things happen too quickly. But then it would come back to the chills and it would shine again.

The narrator had a great voice for a spooky tale and really fit the story perfectly.

Without giving spoilers, I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed with the ending. It just did not work for me. I just found out there is a sequel for this story, and that might help with the ending, somewhat. But on its own the ending was far too abrupt.

I was given a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for an unbiased review.

Well told spooky story

This is a good book that grabbed my attention from the very beginning. Jake Urry did a great job with the narration....bringing out the creepy in this haunted house story. I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Exceptional!

This would make an amazing movie that I would watch over and over again. Very moving but not for children to listen to.

Jake Urry is amazing as always!

Promised Land Lane
by Marcus Brown

WOW!!!

This is a combination of paranormal, horror, suspense and many other things. It hooked me from the start and held me to the very last. The characters were interesting and somewhat frightening. I found myself holding my breath at times and wanting to scream RUN the other way!!! I'm glad I finished this in the morning so I won't have to try and sleep anytime soon!!!


The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Jake Urey was perfect for this book. He made me feel a lot of different emotions.

All of this has been for you.

Jake Urry, who narrates, has a voice which could make his reading the telephone directory terrifying. And it was his reading alone which carried this reader through to the ending of this not so much horror as horrid story. Trite, drawn out and just plain unpleasant, this combination paranormal, gore and love story was not even scary, with the writing dependent on stirring the mire in the reader's psyche with constant character references to their shitting, or nearly shifting, their pants and the blackened teeth of anyone obnoxious (in addition, of course, to their bad smells and sniffing). Ah well. It seems from the other reviews that I am alone in my belief that fear comes from something far more subtle.
I doubt that I will bother with any other of the author's stories.
But the narration was, as anticipated, excellent.
