About the Book
COULD FOURTEEN-YEAR-OLD NOAH PROCTOR HAVE SLAUGHTERED HIS FAMILY IN THEIR BEDS, ARRANGED THEIR BODIES ON A COUCH AND PUT THEIR HEADS ON THE MANTEL?
EVERYONE IN TOWN THINKS SO, BUT NOAH’S NOT TALKING.
Proctor Hall is one of Lafourche Parish’s oldest sugar cane plantations. After Noah murdered his parents and little sister in 1963, he went away to an institution while caretakers maintained the place. Twenty-six years later the man who never spoke returned home. A girl disappears and people believe Noah’s up to his old tricks.
Four college students visit the now-abandoned farmhouse as part of a class project, and they fall victim to whoever – or whatever – still resides within its walls. Famous paranormal investigator Landry Drake conducts a séance there, uncovers long-hidden secrets and learns that the horror of Proctor Hall is still at work.
Eeee! It’s time for all things creepy with this one! I’m such a sucker for your “typical” bad-decision-making horror stories and this one fit the bill! Plus there’s plenty of spook within, so make sure to put on a tough face before you pick this one up (and if you need it, maybe turn on all of the lights) if you scare easily. BUT, if you love horror be sure to pick this one up!
This is one of those slow build horror stories. You know it’s coming, but you don’t necessarily know when the spook will drop. And that setting, gah, there’s something about Louisiana that just screams horror! And you know I’m a sucker for ghosties. So all of this added up to such an amazing narrative and story.
I just really thoroughly enjoyed this book! And while it is the 7th in the series, I was able to follow along without a problem jumping into this series in the middle. Plus it’s the perfect read for right now!
