Lost Hollow constable Graham Gordon just walked into his abandoned childhood home for the first time in twenty years. Local teenagers have been spreading rumors about disembodied screams coming from inside. Now, thanks to a rickety set of cellar stairs and the hateful spirit of his dead father, he might never escape.

Meanwhile, Channel 6 News feature reporter Afia Afton—whose father is the victim of a local decades-old hate crime—is meeting with town administrator Patsy Blankenship. Her mission is to develop a ghost story feature for a special to air on the station’s Halloween broadcast. When Patsy tells her about the screams at the Gordon place, the past and the present are set on a collision course with potentially catastrophic results.

Can Graham come to terms with his father’s past and redeem his own future? Can the murder mystery that has haunted Afia for most of her life finally be solved?

It’s a fight for the future and the past when spirit and flesh wage war at the Gordon place.

My Review

The Gordon Place is a horror novel set in a small town with some seriously dark secrets.
A man wanting to renovate his childhood home gets more than he bargained for when he ends up in the basement.
A female news reporter returns to the small town that caused her so much grief and discovers the horrors of her childhood still haven't been put to rest.
This is a dark, horrifying story that will leave readers uneasy and creeped out. It's more than just a haunted house story. It's more than just uncovering the evil that's been buried in this small town for twenty years. This story tackles a lot, but at the backbone of it all, it's a story about forgiveness.
I found The Gordon Place to be both terrifying (I have issues with dogs, and the one in this story is really weird) and intriguing. There's strangely a decent amount of heart to the story, even though it's got a lot of awful stuff going on. I enjoyed it.
I did think, at first, the story was a little slow in spots. But once things started picking up and got going, it was a legitimately scary, intense ride. I had to put the book down a couple of times (usually when the dog showed up, because that seemed to happen when I was reading at night, in the dark), but I made it through without freaking myself out too much. I'd consider that a plus.
If you're a fan of horror and are looking for a new book to check out, definitely give The Gordon Place a whirl.
I'm rating it 4.5 stars.
