Reviewing the Evidence

CREEPERS starts out so innocently -- a pack of creepers (they prefer to be called "urban explorers") who like to poke through abandoned buildings plan on taking a look through the old Paragon Hotel before it is ripped down.

The building certainly made for an interesting setting, which added to the intensity of the book.

Spinetingler Magazine

It stands as an interesting counterpoint to other haunted house tales and in the process it creates a new type of terror, fear and suspense that are firmly grounded in reality and make the entire experience that much more frightening.
