Publisher's Summary

Lost Hollow constable Graham Gordon just walked into his abandoned childhood home for the first time in 20 years. Local teenagers have been spreading rumors about disembodied screams coming from inside. Now, thanks to a rickety set of cellar stairs and the hateful spirit of his dead father, he might never escape. 

Meanwhile, Channel 6 News feature reporter Afia Afton - whose father is the victim of a local decades-old hate crime - is meeting with town administrator Patsy Blankenship. Her mission is to develop a ghost story feature for a special to air on the station's Halloween broadcast. When Patsy tells her about the screams at the Gordon place, the past and the present are set on a collision course with potentially catastrophic results. 

Can Graham come to terms with his father’s past and redeem his own future? Can the murder mystery that has haunted Afia for most of her life finally be solved? 

It’s a fight for the future and the past when spirit and flesh wage war at the Gordon place.

Great audiobook!!

Knock knock.
Who’s there?
A multilayered book that fans of the Ronald Malfi and the King himself would greatly enjoy. I had the pleasure of listening to the audiobook which was performed well, helping to illuminate the writing of Thorne. I’m looking into more of his work from here on. No joke.

Horror in the south

The Gordon Place is definitely not your ordinary horror tale it has a twist that is creative and very imaginative. I may not like the main character but he does serve a purpose to this sensational plot. The narrator Sean Duregger absolutely brought the story alive. The storyline is well written with relatable characters. I specifically love our little mystery character. I received this review copy at my request and I am glad I did because I enjoyed this creepy tale. I am voluntarily leaving an honest review because this book is a truly do not miss read.

Unique take on the old ghost/paranormal story!

I really enjoyed this story for its twist on the typical ghost stories. There is some awful racism in this book, but if taken in context of the character using such ugly words it fits. It shows how it can be overcome in a new generation. It made me angry that these attitudes are still a part of today's society. I would recommend this book as it kept my interest throughout. The narration was spot on as well.

Sick and twisted I loved it

If you like sick and twisted this book is for you. There are some racial slurs ( but you must take them in the context they were written, which is explained) , lots of colorful language and at times violence. There's ghosts, possession, and so much more.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Dark and Creepy

Really enjoyed The Gordon Place! Isaac Thorne did a good job making you feel like you were in the story with the characters. Sean Duregger was a great narrator, I loved the different voices for each character. Helped the story come alive even more.

A Tragic Tale

The Gordon Place was a solid first novel length audiobook from Isaac Thorne, and was an interesting story of a ghostly possession. I found the story quite emotionally effective, where I was feeling so bad for the main characters and their situation, all from the fallout both immediate and long term of an evil man who didn't stop at death. How it wasn't bad enough what he'd done to these people when he was alive, that NOW they ended up being even further damaged by him. It was just so tragic. I was hoping for a happy end.

As much as I liked the story, I personally found it a bit too strong in a social justice bent, which for escapist horror fiction, it was a bit too much. If I had taken a shot of whiskey each time I heard "toxic masculinity", I would have passed out long before the end of the novel... I did get this book as a review copy for an unbiased review, so to be honest, I'd have to say that this personally detracted from my enjoyment of the tale.

Narration was very smooth and easy listening, high clarity, and I was easily able to immerse myself in the story without the need to rewind when I missed bits or drifted off.
