Sean Barrett makes this an easy-to-listen to horror novel, even with its sudden scares, shocking revelations, and farfetched storyline. If YOUR family suffered a terrible loss—a kidnapped child—would YOU move them to Devil's Cleave and set up housekeeping in a creaky, foreboding "tomb of a place" called Crickley Hall? The Caleigh family does just that and—surprise!—they experience strange noises in the night, puddles without rain, floating apparitions, doors that won't stay closed, and closed-mouthed townspeople who know more than they're saying. All these events and characters are delivered in Barrett's seductive baritone, drawing listeners in as the hideous secrets of Crickley Hall are revealed. Herbert's fans won't want to miss this archetypal haunted house tale or Barrett's impressive performance. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
