Back Cover Blurb:
Now the Rossellis, the family currently living in the home, are experiencing strange phenomena. The phone rings randomly, a bloodlike stain continually reappears in the dining room, and their son, Billy, is talking to someone. Someone nobody can see and only Billy can hear.
The Rossellis hire Tim and Eddie McCloskey, local ghost hunters, to investigate. As the case quickly develops, their investigation takes dark turns as they race against time to find a missing boy. And as Tim and Eddie discover some terrifying similarities between the Moriartys and the Rossellis, they realize another massacre might be around the corner, and only they can stop it.
The individual character development in this novel was quite well done. Readers get to know everyone in the past and present. The differing personalities of the major players in the novel assure that there will be someone for everyone to identify with. I found the author giving himself a cameo appearance in the novel was quite odd. It definitely threw me off for a bit. Also, the dialogue was off for me. There was too much ‘he said…’ followed by a short exclamation for the conversation to flow properly.
As a whole, this story just didn’t do it for me. I understand why many other readers will enjoy it, but it didn’t hold my attention and I found myself questioning a few too many things.
