The Perry family's new house is perfect--except for the weird behavior of the neighbors, and that odd smell coming from a dark corner in the basement. It's a pity no one warned the family about the house. Now it's too late. Because the darkness at the bottom of the basement stairs is rising. Original.

About the Author

Bentley Little was born in Arizona a month after his mother attended the world premiere of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. He is the author of ten previous novels, including The Revelation, The Mailman, The Summoning, Death Instinct (published under the name Phillip Emmons), University, Dominion, The Ignored, The Store, The House and The Town. An acknowledged master of horror, he is currently at work on his next novel.


Little serves up a fairly standard horror tale in which a postmillennial nuclear family (web designer father, attorney mother, cell phone-obsessed teenage daughter, and a younger son) move into a haunted house in New Mexico built on a piece of land with an accursed history (the included backstory is somewhat less than compelling). There are some unsettling moments throughout-the young son is seized by compulsions to eat dirt and tunnel into the ground (although Little provides no reasons or explanation for the boy's actions), and the evil force possessing the house encourages some disturbing behavior (sexual and otherwise) in the inhabitants. VERDICT Narrator Dan Butler delivers a nicely understated reading, which manages successfully to express character emotion; unfortunately, he's not given much character depth with which to work. Despite a few shocks, overall, the story falls flat. Of interest only for libraries with large horror collections.-Victoria Caplinger, Durham, NC (c) Copyright 2012.
