There's a new Nightwatchman at Harrow -- the most haunted house in the world.
In this all-out horror chiller from award-winning and bestselling novelist Douglas Clegg, the old abandoned mansion on the edge of town infects the dreams and nightmares of those who sleep. Children turn against parents, old friends arrive with hatchets in hand -- and only a handful of people are strong enough to resist the seductive whisper of Harrow's haunting.
The Horror of the Damned...
What's been trapped inside the house has begun leaking like a poison into the village itself. A teenage girl sleeps too much, but when she awakens her nightmares break loose. A little boy encounters the ultimate fear when the house calls to him. A young woman must face unspeakable terror to keep Harrow from destroying everything she loves.
And somewhere within the house, a demented child waits with teeth like knives.
Warning: Not for the faint of heart. Gore, foulness and utter Harrow depravity within these haunted pages.

Not what I anticipated...at all.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not what you would call a prude, but I wasn’t expecting the amount of erotic horror contained in “Abandoned”. I truly enjoyed the previous books in this series, and quite honestly found it difficult to put them down. This last one, however ... let’s just say that due to the horrifically gruesome acts committed by the villagers of Watch Point drawn in by the vile evil of Harrow, I had more nightmares than normal. And that’s saying a lot, because I normally have pretty screwed up dreams on a regular basis. Readers beware ... this book is not for someone with a queasy stomach affected easily by tales of
gore and human mutilation. Especially if you have a very good imagination and can easily put yourself in the place of characters in the book.
