Publisher's Summary

“This is a bad place. I don't think people are meant to live here.”

Longtime residents of Harper's Cove believe that something is wrong with the Widow's Point Lighthouse. Some say it's cursed. Others claim it's haunted.

Originally built in 1838, three workers were killed during the lighthouse's construction including one who mysteriously plunged to his death from the catwalk. That tragic accident was never explained, and it was just the beginning of the terror. 

In the decades that followed, nearly two dozen additional deaths occurred in or around the lighthouse including cold-blooded murder, suicide, unexplained accidents, disappearances, the slaughter of an entire family, and the inexplicable death of a Hollywood starlet who was filming a movie on the grounds. The lighthouse was finally shuttered tight in 1988, and a security fence was erected around the property. No one has been inside since. Until tonight.

Thomas Livingston is the acclaimed author of 13 books about the supernatural, and, this evening, he will enter the Widow's Point Lighthouse searching for material for his next best-seller. He will be locked inside for the weekend with no way of contacting the outside world. And, although no human has stepped foot inside the structure in nearly three decades, Livingston will not be alone.

In this remarkable collaboration, father-and-son writing team Richard and Billy Chizmar combine forces to tell a chilling ghost story that will make you think twice about what is waiting for you in the dark.

Glad I messed up and already purchased this: Natrator

I just got done with the authors collection of short stories which included this particular one. I’ve then heard an interview that he was going to perhaps do a pre and post-quel to the the original story. *That’s what I thought I was doing when I made this purchase.

I didn’t realize I was buying the standalone version of the story I already heard. But in this case I’m glad because I don’t think I could’ve listened to the narrators voice for almost 3 hours. I listen to a lot of audiobooks, and there have been some narrators I have liked and others I tolerated. And I’m not trying to be mean, but I finally have come across a narrator I absolutely can’t listen to.

I can’t quite put my finger on it: the narrator over annunciates every word or will take a word and put a strong emphasis on part of the word…Not some words but every word. (Like an extreme version of a 40s-50s radio dramatic announcer). And this isn’t some of the time but all of the time. Every sentence.

I can understand doing that from time to time when you’re trying to build suspense or to convey intensity. But that’s not what this is. It even happens when the situation might be describing the soft green grass or a blue sky. (Things that don’t need to be dramatically stated, get stated that way anyway). Who knows maybe subconsciously he approaches the microphone with a I’ve got a good baritone voice and I’m going to use it; wait till they hear this! I dunno.

I think I’ve left two reviews since I’ve been listening to audiobooks for the last five years or so. I’m starting to enjoy the author (looking for someone Stephen King’ish) and am just now getting into his works. So even though I wasted a credit buying the same thing twice at least I don’t have to listen to it now from this narrator.

Really good

I really enjoyed this scary book. It kept me engaged and wanting more. I could see this being turned into a really good movie. I even thought the ending was good. With that being said, I am not a huge fan of the narrator. For the most part he does a good job, as usual, but sometimes his voice and manner are overpowering. All in all it does not take away from this book and I recommend it.

Window's Point

I wasn't thrilled w Chet's reading but the story itself was great. I've only read a few stories by Richard Chizmar but I've been impressed w everything I have read.
