Staff Reviews

Time for a scary read! I read this great classic ghost story many years ago and it remains, in my eyes, one of the scariest books ever written. The tale is about four men who "go back to the past" and certainly get more than they bargain for. Chilling and suspenseful, you will long remember this book and its characters. Keep the lights on!

In life, not every sin goes unpunished.
For four aging men in the terror-stricken town of Milburn, New York, an act inadvertently carried out in their youth has come back to haunt them. Now they are about to learn what happens to those who believe they can bury the past -- and get away with murder.
Peter Straub's classic bestseller is a work of "superb horror" (The Washington Post Book World) that, like any good ghost story, stands the test of time -- and conjures our darkest fears and nightmares.
