All He Wants Is to Live His Own Life…
Lost Hollow constable Graham Gordon just walked into his abandoned childhood home for the first time in twenty years. Local teenagers have been spreading rumors about disembodied screams coming from inside. Now, thanks to a rickety set of cellar stairs and the hateful spirit of his dead father, he might never escape.
Meanwhile, Channel 6 News feature reporter Afia Afton—whose father is the victim of a local decades-old hate crime—is meeting with town administrator Patsy Blankenship. Her mission is to develop a ghost story feature for a special to air on the station’s Halloween broadcast. When Patsy tells her about the screams at the Gordon place, the past and the present are set on a collision course with potentially catastrophic results.
Can Graham come to terms with his father’s past and redeem his own future? Can the murder mystery that has haunted Afia for most of her life finally be solved?
It’s a fight for the future and the past when spirit and flesh wage war at the Gordon place.
“Thorne does some magnificent character building in this story. He starts off with a foreword letting us know that there’s some very unsettling content within, and the truth of the matter – there is.” –Kendall Reviews
“The Gordon Place by Isaac Thorne is a spine-chilling tale of horror and spiteful spirits… All the characters are exceptionally well developed. The story is very well paced, full of detail and plenty of action to keep a reader hooked. This book will have you on the edge of your seat, unable to stop reading until you reach the end. It’s a clever mix of horror and supernatural, perfectly blended, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.” –Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers’ Favorite
“Thorne eases into the story as if spinning a ghostly yarn, it is as comforting as sliding into a warm bloodbath and just as soothing and nerve-jangling. The suspense ratchets the first time the story zigs instead of the anticipated zag, and never lets up from there.” –Drew Rowsome for My Gay Toronto Magazine
“All in all would I recommend The Gordon Place? You bet your Wolverine work boots I would! It’s a tense ghost story where the evil and the characters all feel so real. There are no heroes in Lost Hollow, just ordinary people dealing with extraordinary situations and it makes for a dark and wonderful ride. I think it will resonate especially well with those of us from small towns in the south but any fan of a good scary story should check it out.” –Yeti for TN Horror News
