Booklist Review: "Maggie Holt's nearly lifelong nemesis is her father's best-seller, House of Horrors, the tell-all story of her family's haunting at Baneberry Hall. When Maggie was six, her family moved into the historical manor, unaware that the home's price was slashed because of a recent murder-suicide. After two weeks of supernatural events, including Maggie's alleged interactions with a malevolent spirit called Mister Shadow, serpents bursting from the walls, and the disappearance of the housekeeper's teenage daughter, the Holts fled, and Ewan Holt launched a writing career based on their haunting. But Maggie doesn't remember any of it, and she's convinced that House of Horrors is a complete lie. Despite her efforts to distance herself from the book, she remains the little girl tormented by Baneberry Hall's ghosts. So, when she unexpectedly inherits Baneberry Hall from her father, Maggie, now a house flipper, resolves to confront her buried past and prepare the house for sale herself. Another breathtaking hit from Sager, who's proven himself a master at crafting new twists on classic horror tales."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Interior designer Maggie Holt, the heroine of this outstanding supernatural thriller from bestseller Sager (Lock Every Door), is shocked to learn after the death of her father, Ewan, that he has left Baneberry Hall, near Bartleby, Vt., to her. She hadn't realized that Ewan still owned the spooky mansion that Maggie, Ewan, and her mother moved into 25 years earlier. Maggie's parents were able to buy the house cheaply, because of a recent tragedy there--the prior owner smothered his six-year-old daughter with a pillow before killing himself. The Holt family had their own traumatic episodes in Baneberry Hall, including Maggie's visions of a ghostly figure, which led to their fleeing one night. Ewan later wrote a bestselling book about their experiences. Maggie, who still suffers from night terrors, decides to move into Baneberry Hall to get a better understanding of what happened to her and to determine how much of her father's book was true. Sager, who makes the house a palpable, threatening presence, does a superb job of anticipating and undermining readers' expectations. Haunted house fans will be in heaven.
