In this book, written in the style of Stephen King,, two young people on vacation in a small New England seacoast town battle unspeakable horror and solve a hundred-year-old mystery. Fourteen Victorian mansions whisper dark secrets among themselves, and a dangerous shadow roams up and down the wide, wintry boulevard in search of new prey.
For me a good mystery book is great to curl up on the couch with and drink a class of wine, Don Sloan is a master! This wonderful and suspenseful book, filled with historical information that builds the tale, is a must read. Mr. Sloan ‘s ability to weave the suspense from the past to the present (and the future!) and help the reader draw magnificant pictures of exactly what is happening…well, it’s a fine work that deserves to be read. Having been raised in a beach community, such as Cape May, certainly helped me to “feel” what it was like with the old homes and mystery surrounding them.
This story is very creepy. The Sisters each have their own stories and Sloan does a great job of giving us just enough info at the right moment without giving away the entire story. It keeps the suspense going and keeps you interested in the story. There is an appropriate amount of evil lurking throughout this book and Sloan does a great job of painting a scary picture. The dreams his characters had gave me nightmares.
The horror that each house experienced sounds truly sick and twisted. The things that occurred there are definitely the kind of thing that a great horror story is made of.The Sisters is the kind of horror book that allows the reader to suspend their grasp on the real world for a while and escape into a good story.
Well – written and fun.
