What was it like? Living in that house.
Maggie Holt is used to such questions. Twenty-five years ago, she and her parents, Ewan and Jess, moved into Baneberry Hall, a rambling Victorian estate in the Vermont woods. They spent three weeks there before fleeing in the dead of night, an ordeal Ewan later recounted in a nonfiction book called House of Horrors. His tale of ghostly happenings and encounters with malevolent spirits became a worldwide phenomenon, rivaling The Amityville Horror in popularity—and skepticism.
Today, Maggie is a restorer of old homes and too young to remember any of the events mentioned in her father’s book. But she also doesn’t believe a word of it. Ghosts, after all, don’t exist. When Maggie inherits Baneberry Hall after her father’s death, she returns to renovate the place to prepare it for sale. But her homecoming is anything but warm. People from the past, chronicled in House of Horrors, lurk in the shadows. And locals aren’t thrilled that their small town has been made infamous thanks to Maggie’s father. Even more unnerving is Baneberry Hall itself—a place filled with relics from another era that hint at a history of dark deeds. As Maggie experiences strange occurrences straight out of her father’s book, she starts to believe that what he wrote was more fact than fiction.
What really happen at Baneberry Hall?
Maggie don’t remember much of her childhood. She only knows what happen to her and her family from a book. Her father made tons of money on making a book about their haunted house. Maggie don’t think the house was ever haunted since she don’t remeber a thing. Then her father leave her the house when he passed away. It now the time for Maggie confront the past that been haunting her family for years.
Home Before Dark was such a thrill read leaving you guessing until the every end. I always love Riley Sager books, his twists in books are sometimes crazy good. The book leaves you wondering if the main character going crazy or something supernatural happen. I also love how the book glows in the dark. This book is a must read for adult mystery/thrillers out there.
