Summary

What dreams may come....

Mulberry is a three-story Victorian in the Hamptons, the perfect summer retreat for the Bradley family. Forty years ago a family was murdered in the house. Now, the bloodstains have been washed away, and the grisly killings are just a chilling local legend. But something unseen still waits in the shadowed hallways and antique furnished bedrooms. 

For psychiatrist Bert Bradley, his wife Alice, budding teens Stacey and Richard, and innocent five-year-old Lissie, the summer begins with days at the beach and neighborhood cocktail parties. But all is not right in Mulberry. The cellar door won’t stay closed. Lissie wakes screaming with night terrors. Strange, vivid dreams spread like a contagion to all the Bradleys. The sins of the past have never left Mulberry; they are slowly spinning a web around the unsuspecting family. Shocking secrets will soon be revealed and the innocent will be drawn inexorably toward a night of terrifying bloodshed.

Not For The Faint Of Heart

This is horror and sex in every paragraph, no holds barred and not for the squeamish. A great murder story from the best in slasher fiction to incredible scenes of sex to match and better any pulp fiction. An interesting listen with great narration by Jenny Bacon adding to the atmosphere of the novel. The book rewards an adventurous listener. Enjoy.

Narration

I do not know what she was trying to do but the narrators constant gasping for breath and deep breathing. Became more and more distracting. By the time I got to the end I was sick of it. Having listened to 1000s of books I have never heard a reader sound like this.

Wasn’t horror put in wrong category

This is more a psychological thriller. I wasn’t impressed at all. Thought it was going to be a haunted house story, not mostly sexual.

This book will leave you speechless!

40yrs ago, during a devastating hurricane, an unspeakable horror occurred at the house on Mulberry Ln. This summer, psychiatrist Bert Bradley has rented that house for his family. When strange occurrences begin, Dr. Bradley starts an investigation...the results will shock you...and scare you as well. Think a combination of The Shining and The Amityville Horror...you just might not want to listen to this before bedtime...lol
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Disturbing

The beginning is disturbing, the middle is disturbing, and the ending is disturbing! But I love this book!!! The twists in the book I never saw coming. I do have to say there may be some trigger points for some people. And the narrator's voice is a bit breathy. You can tell she is trying to "act" the part but so close to the mic I was a bit irritated. Other than that this book is crazy! And good!!

incest, child molestation, rape...repeat

I am 5 hours in and I can't justify spending any more time on this. The only thing I know about the characters is their sexual preferences. It started with molestation, the victim grew up to be a pitiful human being who raped his wife over and over, because she had been raped before they got married. A brother gets aroused by his sister...where is the haunted house? 5 hours in, everyone is laughably oversexed. Maybe the house in the story should wear a ripped bodice on the cover.

Porn is free. I don't need to spend a credit on it. Why do people revere this book? I see a lot of people loved it as a kid. I'm assuming it had the cache of a playboy under the bed.

I'm not a prude. Just get to the point.
