    Evelyn Leighton was an up coming actress who lived in the 1940's. She lived in the mansion at 347 Alto Cresta in the Pacific Palisades. They say that Evelyn died in a car crash but is that what really happen to her. Sixty years later, the Kellerman family was looking for a fresh start. The mansion at 347 Alto Cresta was for sale. This is what Glen and his family were looking for. The new beginning soon turned into to a horrific nightmare. As Glen read more about the history of the house, he knew something was not right. Sometimes the dead come back to settle their unfinished business. Something evil was coming after Glen daughter. Glen realized to save his family, he must put every ounce of strength that he has to defeat this evil spirit. You see this nightmare has been festering for sixty years. This is not you average haunted house story. I like the way that the author weaves the past and the present to tell his story. This is one hell of a roll coaster ride from the beginning to the end. I will be checking out more works by this author. I would highly recommend this book.

    This book is absolutely fantastic! A thrill ride on every page. I couldn't put it down. With all of the twists and turns, it keeps you guessing right up to the very end. Absolutely a must read.

    I'm not usually much for the horror genre, but this book tickled my fancy. Alternating between the 1940's and the present day the book tells the story of a young ingenue, Evelyn Leighton who is on the cusp of Hollywood stardom before her untimely death. Largely forgotten by Hollywood, her former estate trades hands many, many times over the years before becoming the home to the Kellerman family. While the family is originally thrilled to move into the beautiful home, they almost immediately start noticing "things that go bump in the night". The unexplained happenings become more frequent and more dangerous at a very quick rate before the final showdown in the final chapters. There is some great Hollywood history and lots of spooky rituals on these pages. I'll definitely look forward to reading more of Mr. Kaden's work.

    I thoroughly enjoyed John Kaden's ghost story of a 1940's movie star! I loved how it moved back and forth between present and Evelyn's story. I cared about the family and completely empathized with Glen's and Susan's agony over their daughter. Jake cracked me up at times. The play with words kept me enchanted! I will definitely be reading other works from this author. I love a good horror/mystery, so definitely up my alley!

    I received this book for free through Goodreads First ReadsAt first I thought this story sounded familiar, but I was pleasantly surprised at how interested I was as the story got further along. This story plays out well by moving between past and present. I found myself rooting for this family in every possible way. It’s amazing what a family can go through and still keep it somewhat together. The 1940’s back story was very interesting. The only thing I can say about Viktor is – Yikes! This story will make you want to research the history of your own home.All in all it’s a classic horror story that I only read in the day time, but it kept me guessing what’s really going on and what really happened in that house. Kudos to Ian Henry for mixing fact with fiction – it made me Google rat epidemic in Pacific Palisades and I learned a few things.

    My friend loaned me this book to read. It was a fast read that I was caught up in before I knew it! I didn't want to stop until I found out what had happened and if it would all happen again. Just a mild walk on the demonic side, which was perfect for me. I will be watching for more from this author!

    I liked this book. I enjoyed the underlying suspense running throughout the book. It wasn't overly heavy on the occult as I had feared. It kept me reading because I wanted to find out what had happened to one of the major characters in the book, Evelyn Leighton. I liked how the book shifted back and forth between the past and present day.

    Very well-written horror novel about a family who moves into their new home, but the home has secrets of its own, courtesy of it's most famous resident: a budding young Hollywood starlet from the 40s whose life came to a tragic end decades ago. These secrets soon wreak havoc on the home's new inhabitants in this excellently structured thriller.

    I thought this book was very well written for a horror/ suspense novel. I was captivated and invested in the family and couldn't wait till the end to see how it all turned out for them. This book would make a kick ass movie!

    I really enjoyed the unfortunate starlet's POV, but couldn't bring myself to care at all for the modern family. The modern parts just seemed to drag on too much, to the point that I became bored.

    It was ok. Not something I would pick up again,wouldn't even consider it as horror.
