Fiction, Horror, Mystery/Thriller


Rating: 5 out of 5.


What really happened to the girl who walked into the woods and vanished forever? It’s a never-forgotten mystery that clings like a shadow in a short story about dark memories and inescapable fears.

For disgraced professor Matthew Merle, the inheritance of his grandfather’s crumbling mansion is both a burden and an offer of safe haven. His childhood friend Claire, a psychiatrist, desperately needs a haven of her own after one of her patients unleashes his dark side. At turning points in their lives, it’s inevitable that they should return to the past. And to Merle House. It’s been waiting for them.

My Take

I didn’t know I’d like this one as much as I did. If I’d known, I’d never have started listening. Now I’m probably going to spend the rest of my day listening to the next part of the series when I should really be writing. Oh well, it can’t be helped.

I was not familiar with the author, Lisa Unger, before reading this, but she has a way with suspense writing that is absolutely mesmerizing. Her characters are flawed but easily pull in the reader.

The performance of the narrators only strengthened the story, and this is one of those I would say that you need to hear.
