The Showing, by Will MacMillan Jones

There is no way Mr. Jones would ever want to live in his grandparents' home.  However, when it gets out on the market, he cannot resist going back for one last look, even if that look is full of evil foreboding.  Unfortunately, as soon as he leaves, women start going missing, and the cops determine Jones is connected to the disappearances.  And he is, just not in the way the cops expect.

Nothing like a demonic house to keep a reader on their toes, eh?  This book was a perfect read for a windy, bleak autumn night.  And it was certainly spooky.  The tale certainly has a British air to it, with very polished writing and somewhat buttoned up characters, but I really did not mind that.  For me, this story was less about the people, and more about the house and the ambiance.

I think the tone of the story is set very well.  The house actually becomes a character in the book, one with depth and mystery.  The book held my attention well, and I read it all in one sitting.  The book will appeal to fans of paranormal stories, mysteries, and thrillers, because it adequately combines aspects of all three genres.

I received a review copy courtesy of the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
