Product Description

A Tale of Terror!

24-year-old Sara Crimson isn't happy about moving into a shady apartment complex with a man she barely knows. But after discovering she's pregnant with her first child, she decides to try to make a relationship work with the baby daddy Max, an up-and-coming talent agent.

An aspiring novelist, Sara at first is elated with the additional free time she has to focus on her writing. But as the days turn to weeks, she starts to suspect that something peculiar is happening in the Executive Townhouses of North Hollywood, California. People start disappearing, strange noises echo down the corridor, and a creepy old tenant constantly stares at her from afar. 

But what Sara doesn't know is that the hidden horrors that lie inside the complex are far worse than anything her overactive imagination could have ever conceived...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read 13 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
If you didn't know already, I'm a huge fan of horror. I go crazy for new horror stories.

This book was certainly full of what I love most about horror. It was so chocked full of suspense it was one I couldn't put down at times. I was entirely engrossed it was so gripping.

It was surprising too. The villain wasn't clear until actually revealed which kept me guessing which I always like in a story.

Another thing I always like in a story - flawed protagonists! Sara has her faults and she's not exactly likeable at the start but that soon changes throughout the novel.

I also appreciate authors of horror novels that aren't afraid of throwing as much gore at readers as possible. This is definitely not a read to finish whilst eating or just before sleeping!

Overall I recommend this book to fans of the horror genre. It was a great read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scary fun 8 July 2011
By V. Cano
Format:Kindle Edition
This is one suspenseful book! I read it throughout the course of the day because I couldn't put it down.
Mr. Rowe has a knack for writing convincing characters, that's what always stands out from his novels. He is able to create a balance of hero/ine with someone who has as many faults as a "regular" person. Sara, the main character, is not someone extremely lovable, we see her as a selfish, curious person who is stuck in a situation she'd rather not be in. At first, she strikes the reader like someone not caring enough to be a heroine. And yet, she does grow on us. We start to see parts of ourselves reflected in her actions and her not-so-altruistic thoughts. We begin to worry about her well-being as she tries to uncover the secrets her neighbors hide. The other characters are well crafted, also. We have Max, Sara's fiancée, who although proclaims his love for her, can't seem to really show it; we have Cory a precocious boy who would not be out of place in a Stephen King novel; and the villain, of course, which I will not reveal because I don't want to ruin it for anyone.
The plot is fast-paced, never boring the reader. We follow Sara until the shocking conclusion, and never, not once, did the plot reveal itself prematurely. It's one of those books that make you want to keep reading well into the night.
I can easily recommend it to anyone who likes a good scare, but I do suggest not to eat while you read the last fourth of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good horror story 26 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Picked this up when it was free. I read a lot of books but this one stood out to me. Very good story. Reminded me of the Richard Laymon books I've read over and over again. In a good way.

The book kept me hooked all the way though and I enjoyed the character development and the ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Horror. 6 May 2012
By echo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoy a really good horror story and this book didn't let me down. It hooks you from the first page. The characters all gell well with each other. I did actually guess who the bad guy was before the end but it didn't ruin it for me. I would highly recommend this book. I would love to read a follow up if the author will write one (hint,hint).

1.0 out of 5 stars Horror?? I've read scarier young adult books. 20 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
only read up to the first murder.
selfish characters , I actually didn't care if they died or didn't so what's the point in reading further.
perhaps the author should read books by the masters to see how a thriller is written....
and oh, for goodness sake why do male authors believe we they need to have sex in books like these ? the scenario where the sexy neighbour leaves a door open for a complete stranger THEN gets into the bath to wait for him is outdated and ridiculous.
what a waste of my money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good book! 13 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The title intrigued me. The book starts off quite slowly but builds to a really good ending, which is surprising given the gentle story at the beginning!

I found this book very uninspiring and boring, I usually enjoy this genre, however this book was not for me. I disliked the main character from the start, and my opinion didn't improve.
