Some doors should never be opened.
A mother gone missing...
A desperate family in turmoil, offered a second chance...
A forbidden room where terrible secrets are screaming to be heard...
When Scott Dawson's wife, Holly, disappears, leaving her family at the brink of bankruptcy, the last thing Scott expects is a helping hand from nowhere, a rich and never before mentioned Uncle Alastair.
Uncle Alastair is dead, but his will promises to save them all - if the Dawsons follow its stipulations.
1) Scott must live in the ancient estate with his children, Hudson and Hazel.
2) The children can never leave the grounds at the same time.
3) And no matter what, no one is allowed in the basement.
Will a sprawling estate haunted by yesterday's ghosts and devastating secrets help a struggling family finally overcome all that life has thrown at them, or will it be the Dawsons' undoing?
Threshold is a ghost story you won't be able to stop reading, and will never forget.
why, oh why, can't a ghost story be a ghost story? when the twist is revealed why does the ghost always have to be an alien? it's such a cop out and such a disappointment. for 3/4 of this book i was riveted and couldn't put it aside, then - with no foreshadowing, and leaving the main characters aside - the story just goes ridiculous. platt and wright - your other works are just awesome; why not create a true, modern ghost story in the template of the masters of the genre ...poe, dickens, m.r. james or even like amityville?! SUCH a letdown! Grrrrrrr
Threshold was a fab listen. The characters, though tortured, were likable and realistic. The plot of the story is so unique, you'll never figure it out, making it one for the records.
Odd ending but I throughly enjoyed it. The narrator was easy on the ears too.
