Publisher's summary

Some Places Should Stay Abandoned....

Dr. Siegfried Klein has vanished on a mysterious pilgrimage to an abandoned infirmary in the ghost-town of Moonville. The locals in the surrounding areas are tight-lipped, hostile to outsiders. Local legend has it that the old Sick House is packed with spirits, none of them friendly, and that to set foot in it is to enter Hell itself.

Enter Harlan Ulrich, private investigator and skeptic.

Traveling to the site, the detective begins the long process of separating truth from grisly local myth, and during his investigation stumbles upon certain frightful evidence that tries his nerve. He wants to find the doctor in one piece and weathers the hostilities of the locals even as their stories keep him up at night. But the longer he spends in the ghost town of Moonville, the more he feels the influence of something sinister in the shuttered infirmary.

When finally the truth is revealed and the infirmary's sordid past comes to light, will Ulrich manage to escape with his life?

An Overlooked Gem

This was a surprisingly wonderful listen. I think a lot of people will miss out on this story. If you base your choices on the number of reviews/listens before deciding if it is something you may be interested in, you may overlook some very entertaining stories. The narrator was great. I throughly enjoyed his voice throughout the story. It certainly didn't feel like I had listened to a 6 hour book. I will look forward to more of this series.
