The town of Monson is a quaint and quiet New England town. Yet the house is terrifying and has been for as long as anyone can remember. Adults put the thing out of mind and ignore the fears of their children, admonishing them to stay away.
Too many boys have vanished into the swamps behind the house. Bodies never recovered. Nothing ever recovered. The families are left with their memories and the disturbing thought that the Boylan House had something to do with it.
Mason Philips knows better than that. He knows that there's something in the house. Something evil. Something hunting children from time to time.
And Mason has decided that it's time for the killing to stop.

I truly enjoyed the Moving In series but didn't like the narrator or halting speech. This trilogy was not nearly as interesting or creepy and the story seemed disjointed. However the narrator was much better. I would like to see this narrator do the other series. I would also like less casual profanity which I don't think is necessary.

Listen to it in the dark
I loved both the story and the narration of this book. It was exactly right for listening to in bed with the lights off, as I like to do with the best haunted house books, and which everyone should try at least once!
There is a decent amount of historical backstory to this book, and while backstory can sometimes be tedious, in this case it was actually my favorite part. I loved listening to the scary things that happened back in the 1700s and 1980s involving this house. When get to the modern day events, we already know something is seriously wrong with the place and are begging the protagonist to stay away. Of course, he doesn't listen. They never do!
I have never heard of the narrator, Thom Bowers, before, but I will keep an eye out for more of his books in this genre. He has talent, as well as a nice voice. He was totally unobtrusive and stayed out of the way of the story, which is one of the best things a narrator can do.
This was a great book.
