Once known as the Screaming House, it has a history of black magic, voodoo--and murder. What a perfect home for a nice young couple to start a family... New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg delivers a chilling gothic vision of Washington, D.C. where a new supernatural horror is born within a house haunted by diabolical ritual and a terrifying legacy of dark forces.
"A white-knuckle read from beginning to end -- Clegg delivers!" - John Saul.
"The tension seldom flags as this tale builds to a grisly, suspense-filled climax. As in Goat Dance, his first book, Clegg pulls out the stops of terror...a chilling story." -- Publisher's Weekly.
The brownstone was a wedding gift. Rachel Adair thought Draper House in Washington, D.C, would be the perfect place to start over with her husband, Hugh. But as soon they move into the old townhouse, the nightmares begin: horrific images of the child Rachel lost, the dark secrets of Hugh's father, visions of blood-curdling rituals . . . and the scraping sound of an even greater terror lurking within the shadows.
For fans of Stephen King, Peter Straub and James Herbert.
