"Sarah Langan is an audaciously terrifying storyteller, and Audrey's Door practically hums with frantic energy and hair-raising tension."
-- New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen


Rosemary's Baby meets The Shining behind Audrey's Door --a masterwork of psychological suspense and supernatural terror from the acclaimed author of The Keeper and The Missing. Ramsey Campbell, Matthew Pearl, and David Morrell are among the ever-growing legion of fans of this Bram Stoker Award-winning writer who Peter Straub says, "combines a genuinely poetic sensibility with a taste for horror's most bravura excesses." Reviewers across the country have already compared Sarah Langan to H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, and Stephen King and her brilliantly, chillingly original Audrey's Door solidifies her standing as one of America's most exciting new masters of contemporary dark fantasy.

A quite bizarre, "haunted house horror" story. I found it difficult to read, and very chilling, as this quite psychotic, obsessive/compulsive young woman attempts to live in an infamous apartment building in NYC that is one step away from being condemned, replete with a history of suicides & murder. This book gets inside the woman's tortured head to the point that the reader cannot tell reality from fantasy to a really frightening, ever-growing degree. I found it quite interesting that in the author's acknowledgements she admits that before writing this book she was reading things such as Shirley Jackson's "Haunting of Hill House", one of the greatest ever "haunted house" tales, and the influence is pretty obvious!
