What if insidious evil flourished in the one place where you feel most safe: your very own home? The chilling answer comes from New York Times bestselling master of suspense John Saul-in a new novel that makes terror a household word.

The sudden, tragic death of her husband leaves Carolyn Evans alone in New York City to raise an eleven year-old son and a twelve-year-old daughter on little money and even less hope. But then she meets and marries handsome, successful Anthony Fleming, who wins her heart and embraces her children. When Carolyn settles her family into Anthony's spacious apartment on Manhattan's Central Park West, her fears of an uncertain future give way to a sense of abundant happiness. But soon, new terrors will come home to roost in the luxurious, exclusive building named The Rockwell. Midnight voices whisper of a cruel and hungry presence that also calls The Rockwell home.

First, Carolyn's daughter begins to suffer from recurring nightmares of strangers in her room at night. Then her son insists that a neighbor's recently deceased child isn't dead at all-but being held captive somewhere in The Rockwell. And when Carolyn discovers a startling secret about Anthony's past, it seems she, too, is falling victim to the creeping paranoia infecting her family. Should she doubt her perfect husband, their kindly fellow tenants, or her own sanity? Does someone-or something-in her new home have sinister designs on Carolyn and her children? Is her new life charmed or cursed ?

Step across the threshold of The Rockwell-and into the dark realm of John Saul . . . in a spine-tingling novel that will haunt you wherever you live.

Begins with the murder of Caroline's husband. She is alone with her 2 children. Unexpectedly, she meets Anthony whom she marries, moving into his home - a building that holds stories of terror. The plot continues, gathering the reader into events that would ordinarily be in a horror story involving the 'undead'. Although this is not my usual type of book, I was caught up in the unfolding events. It was a different but good book.

Really intense paranormal/horror/suspense set in a creepy NYC apartment.Loved the Central Park setting, and the wonderful character development.I really cared about the widow and her two children.

A very hard to put down read,so read when you have the free time!

Highly recommended for those who love 'clean' horror without the profanity/graphic sex/and splatter-gore.

One of the creepiest and disturbing books I've read...with a pretty ridiculous ending.

Typical Saul, good writing but with a recycled plot from a previous book, only in a different setting
