This story freaked me out!
Short of four hours, this Audible Original, was packed with well-defined characters and a terrifying house.
We all know about a certain home in Amityville and Still House reminded me of that one.
Dave Johnson purchased a coastal home thinking he was going to make money out of it. His wife, Lisa was not happy with the investment.
A year later, Dave might have to agree with her when his dream of an income evaporates. The tenants stopped paying the rent and when the property real state agent calls him to let him know that the tenants have disappeared, he is obviously upset. There is nothing left but to check the damage himself and Lisa will have to come with him.
Still House kept me hooked to every word. It had wonderful narrators who easily brought the terror to the front and center.
