When David Caine, a celebrated skeptic of the supernatural, is invited by an old friend to spend a month in “the most haunted house in Virginia,” he believes the case will be like any other. But the Alexander House is different.

Ralph the old neighbor from down the lane invites David to really get a feel for the place. Since this move in David has avoided much of the house. After his talk with Ralph he finally take a look at the second floor.

There we get our first take of the suspense.

The book moves are a very slow pace. When David explores the upstairs it's the first taste of action since starting the forty-three chapter book.

By the time I reached chapter 10, I couldn't force myself to continue reading further. David's thoughts are erratic at best. It's like being in the head of Dexter and hearing his daily commentary.
