Publisher's Summary

The idea is a guaranteed ratings winner: a reality TV show where six contestants audition for a part in a horror movie, a chance to be a "scream queen." Whoever lasts the night in a haunted house, rigged with shriek-inducing special effects, will walk away rich and famous...if they make it out alive.
Unfortunately, no one on the production crew has delved into the past of the house itself, a place where a mad doctor carried out unspeakable human experiments...where people say every room is haunted by the vengeful spirits of his tortured victims...a house coming alive before their very eyes. Now, as the cameras roll, blood is spilled, bodies disappear, and no one -- not even the show's creators -- can be sure what's a game and what's real.
But with each terrifying discovery, the contestants are dwindling, and one thing is becoming chillingly clear...on this show, there will be no survivors.

Had to give up; narration appalling!

I bravely persevered for the first seven chapters but, the next day, I just couldn't face listening to Jo Anna Perrin any longer. I think this is the first time that I have given up listening because of poor narration.

I can't really comment on the story after seven chapters but the voice characterisation up to that point was genuinely cringeworthy. Jodi is portrayed as an insipid nitwit, the 'Australian' sounded, at different points, more Irish or Asian and, from the voice characterisation of one of the film director brothers, I concluded that he had a severe speech impediment. The narrator paused in the wrong places at times, which also led to a poor listening experience.

The synopsis was appealing, so it is a shame that the author was let down so badly by the chosen narrator. I will probably try another book from this author but I will never, ever listen to Jo Anna Perrin again.
