ALL THE OLD HOUSES on the street had the same problems.
But it was the people who lived in them that were haunted.
SCOTT KEYES returns to his hometown of Sydenham after twenty years away eager to explore the darkness that surrounds his forgotten childhood.

Now that they are dead and buried, any questions he has will go unanswered.
Until he gets to Sydenham. A mysterious force has haunted his absence, blindly seeking a release from its long torment by stalking those responsible for its pain. Murder, loss and betrayal manifest in a sleepless shadow that hungers for revenge.
And no one sees it coming.
As Keyes delves into his past, he unlocks a mystery steeped in black magic and written in blood. He’ll be lured into the halls of a cursed old home where something is waiting and watching for MOTHER’S BOY.
Nice little sci-fi time killer
If you're looking for an instant classic, this isn't the book for you. However, if you enjoy a good horror novel without too much fussiness or grandstanding, this is a good choice. The author is good at describing the scene as though you were watching it on a screen rather than reading it. The pacing is good at some moments and excruciatingly slow at others. It is by no means a standout piece but I really enjoyed it for what it was: a fairly unusual little horror novel that can help pass the time on a rainy day. This author is definitely worth a read.
