Not truly a horror story - more of a suspense. You know something is wrong at the Rockwell building but not sure who is all involved at first. The mother, Caroline, must have felt that Tony was such a great lover that she ignores the warning signs at the beginning, then acts so wimpy at her job and her treatment of her children's issues. I did like the involvement of the cop, the girlfriends and the coworkers. Sorry to have something happen so soon to her friend. Did like how the solutions were done with the son having such a major part in it. ( )

The first half was a little slow for me. But the second half I found myself very invested in the story and trying to figure out a way for the characters to escape. A cool twist on a haunted house/demonic possession story. I liked the ending, but then the epilogue happened and made things seem too simple. Overall a 4 star book. ( )

Nothing's happening. Nothing's happening. Something about bad dreams or something??? Nothing's happening. Nothing's happening... It's over. 😡
Strike ✌️ for this author. ( )

Recently widowed Caroline Evans, who has two children, (10-year-old Ryan and 12-year-old Laurie) remarries and moves into new husband’s home, an old apartment building in New York City called The Rockwell. The kids hate it and want to move back to their old home. The Rockwell has a reputation for being a spooky old building. Ryan dislikes his mom’s new husband Anthony. He finds the tenants in the building (who are mostly elderly) strange and creepy. Soon, one of Caroline’s friends, who was checking on a tenant at the Rockwell, is murdered. Ryan and Laurie start hearing strange voices at night. Then Laurie starts having scary dreams… are they dreams? Or are they real?

This was a really captivating and creepy read! I had a hard time putting this book down, I had to find out what was going to happen next! The setting of the old building was good and atmospheric. The characters were interesting… some were likable, some were weird and scary. The storyline was compelling.

Another dark and chilling read by John Saul. ( )

Review: Midnight Voices by John Saul.

This book being a supernatural/ suspenseful/ mild horror, turned out to be thrilling and enticing. The setting was a neighborhood near New York’s Central Park in a highlighted posh apartment building called the Rockwell House. All rumors about this place were all the inhabitants were cloying, creepy, elderly witches and vampires. The children in the area would pass this building on the opposite side of the street because of fear and their childhood imagines of horror of dead bodies and ghouls. The characters were all well developed, interesting, and spooky to some. The story was haunting with a few young child characters but the author was considerate withholding real graphic details to make the reader comfortable. I did think the ending was too quick and could have been spread out more.

The story started out with the father of a small family going for his usual jog through Central Park early in the morning before he headed out to work. Brad never returned…
His wife Caroline tries to move on raising her ten-year old son and twelve-year old daughter on a small salary from an antique shop she worked at just barely surviving. Than within a year she meets Tony Fleming and things start to get better for her and her two children…or do they…??

All matters seemed to go well and they married but not without stern concerns from a friend and her son’s hatred toward Tony. Caroline thought with time her friend and son would succumb to their feelings and the evil aura that they claimed surrounded Tony and others at the Rockwell House would subside. Now that they were living at Tony’s there was an issue with her daughter. She was having nightmares, hearing voices, and being pale and ill which concerned Caroline but at the time not to the point of being in danger. Caroline just placed the blame on her daughter making adjustment to the new home. Caroline is pulled deeper and deeper into a maze of secrets that threatens her two children’s lives as well as her own.

The secrets and horror are literally within the walls of the Rockwell House and the inhabitants of the building…..More event takes place throughout the story such as: Rebecca, an eight-year old dies of a slow death unbeknownst to Caroline and her children, another young boy slowly dieing on a gurney in a unknown room in the basement, secret passages throughout the house, new familiar young visitors’ at neighbors apartments, people acting stranger and some getting younger by the minute, and an album of photo’s found going back four or five generations looking like the people who are living at the Rockwell House.

Caroline confronted Tony and was taken away when she became aware something was wrong but her son, locked away in his room, is determined to escape the terrors behind the walls and find his mother and save his sister and bring the Rockwell House down…..
