Publisher's Summary

Sadie has a gift. And she'll do anything to keep from using it.

At 16, Sadie Young had a brush with death, and as a result she became more sensitive to the supernatural. Rather than embrace this gift, she spent years running from it, and from the darkness that once preyed upon her. 

Now 25 and working as a librarian, Sadie is called upon by a desperate family friend to look into a strange series of events. A teenaged girl has entered a reputedly haunted house in town and has gone mad. Committed, the girl attempts suicide and claims to be terrorized at all hours by a horrific specter known as "Mother Maggot".

Despite having subdued her gift for the past nine years, Sadie wishes to assist the girl and reticently agrees to visit the site of the haunting. But upon entering the house on Beacon Hill, she discovers that Mother Maggot isn't merely a figment of a disturbed teen's imagination....

Another great listen

This book was recommended to me since I liked the previous book from this author. Another great haunted house listen. Loved the theme and the writing. The narrator mispronounces some stuff and doesn't know there are two Rs in library. I didn't knock her but pronouncing incredulous correctly but then mispronouncing incredulity gave me a chuckle because I listen to audiobooks all day and I am a snob now lol. But seriously great book and performance, definitely buy it if you like the haunted house theme. And the ending!! Ooph.

Captivating!

This story just pulled me in, and the performance was top notch. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
