Publisher's Summary

Some Places Should Stay Abandoned....
Dr. Siegfried Klein has vanished on a mysterious pilgrimage to an abandoned infirmary in the ghost-town of Moonville. The locals in the surrounding areas are tight-lipped, hostile to outsiders. Local legend has it that the old Sick House is packed with spirits, none of them friendly, and that to set foot in it is to enter Hell itself.
Enter Harlan Ulrich, private investigator and skeptic.
Traveling to the site, the detective begins the long process of separating truth from grisly local myth, and during his investigation stumbles upon certain frightful evidence that tries his nerve. He wants to find the doctor in one piece and weathers the hostilities of the locals even as their stories keep him up at night. But the longer he spends in the ghost town of Moonville, the more he feels the influence of something sinister in the shuttered infirmary.
When finally the truth is revealed and the infirmary's sordid past comes to light, will Ulrich manage to escape with his life?

Highly Engaging 1st Audio Book

Would you listen to The Sick House again? Why?

Yes, I'll be listening again in the future. Highly engaging story with a plot that continues to deliver and build right until the final chapter.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Ulrich, the PI and main character, is of course the favourite. He's a flawed and somewhat lonely man, yet with a passion he himself underestimates.


Have you listened to any of Jake Urry’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is my first audiobook and thus my first listen to Jake's narration. I will certainly be visiting the store very soon to sample more of his work. Very happy!


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

With coffee, living is less of a problem.


Any additional comments?

Jake Urry's narration is crips and clear, with a good steady tone and with a proper spoken English accent that is easy on the ear.

A gripping dark tale with many twists and turns

What does Jake Urry bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

This narrator is one of my favourites, his gritty, solemn tone is perfect for this book. The character voices are well done and amusing at times, and the story is brought to life very vividly by this great voice.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I liked the main character, Ulrich, in general and felt for him as he moved through the plot. I hope there will be a series following this as I feel there is a lot of potential to find out more about him.


Any additional comments?

Dark, gripping and really well read, I'd reccommend to any horror lovers and keep my fingers crossed for a sequel!
