When Edwin Gonzalez and Lillian Otero purchased the historic S.K. Pierce Victorian Mansion in Gardner, Massachusetts, in 2009, they scoffed at the ghostly legends surrounding the house. They didn’t believe in ghosts. The house soon proved them wrong. By the fall of 2011, they were forced from their house, narrowly escaping with their lives.

It took me a little while to place the names, it was the events described that made me realise I knew some of this story thanks to various paranormal shows so it was nice to get a more indepths look at the story if this haunting.
Knowing a bit about the story I did enjoy the book but the tone of the book felt a bit off to me, it’s recounting supposed real events but in such a way that it reads as fiction, like the people that it’s happening to are invented characters.
The house is real, the people are real, they say that all the events of the haunting are real, so it feels very odd to hear them recounted in such a way that reads like a novel rather than a non-fixtion.
Samuel E.Hoke did a decent job with the narration but again hearing him read it, the structure of the book and presentation of facts in this structure makes it feel like a fiction novel rather than recounting of true events.
