"Fear the living, fear the dead, fear the Unspeakable."
Kenning Hall was more than a country home, it was the family's sanctuary away from the frenetic pace of London, until that day.
What happened that day was so horrifying, so devastating, that the place was left to ruin, until now.
A decade later, 32-year-old Rupert Harrison, the only surviving heir to the Harrison publishing dynasty, has ordered Kenning Hall restored to its former glory.
It's time to go back.
Now, if you think you've heard this story before, think again. This is just the beginning.
Something is waiting at Kenning Hall. Something vengeful, malevolent, and it will follow him home.
This book isn't creepy, it's downright terrifying. Be warned: Daylight will not save you.

Matt Addis...loved it!
It can't be compared! I haven't read anything like it before.
Some secrets DO haunt you (in a truly horrifying way)!
My second TM book, and they were both thoroughly enjoyable. Devoured them both in a couple of sittings. Just one more to go! then what will I do? lol
Most definitely will do that,and have done so already.
Dan Brown's Da Vinci code same pace and action,with chills.
I must say this... I have a very good imagination,but Matt brought the story alive,I felt as though I was partaking in an on screen thriller.
It was and I did,a listen fest carried it with me everywhere so I could listen and needed to know what was going to happen next.
The wisest spend of my hard earned cash,I enjoy reading with a passion,but if listening is fashinonable then "Unspeakable" audio is the new black.
It came as no surprise to me, considering I loved reading this book, that the audiobook would automatically rise to the top of my most loved audiobooks. Sometimes a book can be slightly ruined by transitioning into audio format, whether that be due to the narrator or quality, but Unspeakable certainly was /not/ one of those books. It enhanced the atmosphere already present in the story, and brought every goosebump and hitch of breath to life, I loved every single second!
Though it it can be compared to a twisted Sherlock in its eerie mysteries, or a Dan Brown book with the quick pacing and unfolding of event after event, I can definitely say that Mr Marturano's Unspeakable is an individual star.
As previously mentioned, I have read this book before. So Matt played a great part in rekindling my love for this book. Hearing it aloud emphasised the true mystery and fear in every chapter. The carefully measured and nuanced narration created moments that built the tension sky high, only to shatter your nerves when the tension was broken, and then - in quieter parts - he kept me hanging on every word, wanting more and more. A perfect execution of how I imagined the audiobook to be.
Those who know me know that I have a very strong sense of wanting to justice for people, so when certain characters got the "justice" and peace that they needed, so to speak, I was definitely cheering out loud. And I'm notoriously a scaredy cat who can't stay away from things that freak me out, so it definitely gave me those fearful watery eyes and had me expressing a few expletives at the scarier bits!
If only this would now become a film or tv series, I'd be very pleased! Thank you to Mr Marturano and Matt for creating such a fantastic piece, an especially enjoyable audiobook in October!
