ABOUT THE BOOK:
The author of the enormously successful Boneshaker returns to Tor with her unique take on the classic haunted house book
Chuck Dutton built Music City Salvage with patience and expertise, stripping historic properties and reselling their bones. Inventory is running low, so he's thrilled when Augusta Withrow appears in his office offering salvage rights to her entire property. This could be a gold mine, so he assigns his daughter Dahlia to personally oversee the project.
The crew finds a handful of surprises right away. Firstly, the place is in unexpectedly good shape. And then there's the cemetery, about thirty
But Dahlia's concerns about the corpse and Augusta's disappearance are overshadowed when she begins to realize that she and her crew are not alone, and they're not welcome at the Withrow estate. They have no idea how much danger they're in, but they're starting to get an idea. On the crew's third night in the house, a storm shuts down the only road to the property. The power goes out.
The Family Plot is a haunted house story for the ages-atmospheric, scary, and strange, with a modern gothic sensibility to keep it fresh and interesting-from Cherie Priest, a modern master of supernatural fiction.
LISTEN TO AN EXCERPT:
The Family Plot by Cherie Priest
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Family Plot by Cherie Priest is a 2016 Tor publication.
This story is written just the way a good horror novel should be, with an ending that gave me the shivers!!!
Haunted houses and ghost stories are my favorite horror novel tropes, but I seldom find a contemporary tale that satisfies me. So, I am happy I discovered this little gem!
Anyone who enjoys ghosts, the paranormal, or horror novels will want to give this book a try.
