A woman commits suicide for no apparent reason. A week later, her son- fifteen-year-old Mark Underhill - vanishes. His uncle, novelist Timothy Underhill, searches his hometown of Millhaven for clues that might help unravel this horrible dual mystery. He soon learns that a pedophilic murderer is on the loose in the vicinity, and that shortly before his mother's suicide, Mark had become obsessed with an abandoned house where he imagined the killer might have taken refuge. No mere empty building, the house whispers from attic to basement with the echoes of a long-hidden true-life horror story, and Tim Underhill comes to fear that in investigating its unspeakable history, Mark stumbled across its last and greatest secret: a ghostly lost girl who may have coaxed the needy, suggestible boy into her mysterious domain.

    " This was recommended to me by a friend. I am grateful. I had a difficult time getting started with the book. By the end of the first chapter, I was hooked though. I flew through it. I liked the POV. I enjoyed the setting. It was well orchestrated. I enjoyed the cast. I picked it up because it was a ghost story first. It is much more than that. It was, as advertised, a collection of my favorite elements of horror. I think it has something for almost all walks of horror fans. Check it out. "

    " Very creepy supernatural story. "

    " One of my favorite Peter Straub novels :-) "

    " Started slow but picked up about halfway in. Hard to put down toward the end. Worth a re-read because you're never really sure what exactly is going on. The narrator in the story is a writer himself and more than a few times it is suggested that the events are "like something out of a book". "

    " Enjoyed it. My first solo Peter Straub book. I will read his other works. "

    " This was my first Peter Straub book. I must say, he kept me reading without wanting to rush through it, yet the interest was maintained. I would read some, think about it, then read more. I liked the way he jogged back and forth between the actions of the boy and the thoughts of the uncle without confusing the reader. The mystery of the boy's disappearance almost disappointed me until I read the intro to his next book. Now, of course, I want to get my hands on the next book! Nice going, Peter! "

    " Haunted house, serial killer, children disappearing, a tortured daughter, a nephew with a crush on Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, this book has something for everyone. "

    " Too short. I wanted more!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 12/30/2013

    " Unusual and absorbing. Doesn't follow the "formula" as much as other Straub books. "

    " it was ok...creepy in parts...but i like that "

    " Very good! Disturbing and intriguing at the same time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maralie | 12/20/2013

    " Good book but disappointed in the end. Just ended..would have liked a little more at the end "

    " interesting concept but not satisfying at the end "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chere | 6/28/2013

    " This is the first novel I've read of Straub's, and a wonderful introduction to him! I actually got this because of Gaiman's blurb, but I was delighted to discover that Straub's writing suits my taste. Quick-paced, intriguing and a very good read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie Davis | 6/16/2013

    " This book didn't scare the bejeebus out of me the way Ghost Story and Julia did, but I couldn't put it down. Peter Straub is just an excellent storyteller and he creates really compelling characters. "

    " Well written book, one that keeps you guessing all the way until the end, and then when you get to the end you are disappointed. Well that's how I was with this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 1da | 11/19/2012

    " A typical Peter Straub book, follows writer Tim Underhill, through the resolution (well, kinda) of yet another mystery. A story within a story that is somehow linked...the usual horror with a tinge of sex. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philippa | 3/12/2012

    " True to Straubs style a scary, supernatural story that feels like it could be real "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 2/7/2012

    " A bit gothicy/horror for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Bingham | 1/12/2012

    " Peter Straub is no Steven King, but I don't miss the gore. instead, my mind is busy sorting through the twists and turns and the writing within the writing. I absolutely loved this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 El | 1/6/2012

    " Alongside "The Throat" one of the spookiest stories I've ever read. "
