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.

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.

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.

Dark!

Loved the story. It is enthralling. Catches your attention from the beginning, then you can’t stop until it’s finished.

The narrator does a great job keeping you involved in what’s happening.

Grabs a hold of you and doesn't let go

Isaac Thorne composed a compelling ghost story with supernatural elements. The story tackles interpersonal and cultural racism amongst interpersonal relationships in a small town. The history of a town's biases divided amongst black and white and social class leads to unsolved murders. Isaac does a nice job expressing the different experiences of three main characters due to the hands of ignorance and prejudices. The reader is immediately pulled into the tension until the story unfolds. Possession is taken to another level as the reader feels the frustration of not having control over one's own body. The events unfold in a well paced flow. You will not be disappointed enjoying your evenings in bed reading this.

Amazing!

A refreshingly original horror tale with psychosocial allegories on par with The Babadook. Sean Duregger nails it with the narration! His ability to capture the personalities and intents of each character elevates the story to another level entirely. The audiobook version is definitely worth your time!
