Book Description

From newcomer Jordan Crouch and Blake Crouch, author of the Top-10 Kindle-bestsellers Run, Stirred, and Fully Loaded, comes Eerie, a chilling, gothic thriller in the classic tradition of The Shining and The Sixth Sense.

TRAPPED INSIDE A HOUSE

On a crisp autumn evening in 1980, seven-year-old Grant Moreton and his five-year-old sister Paige were nearly killed in a mysterious accident in the Cascade Mountains that left them orphans.

WITH A FRIGHTENING POWER

It's been thirty years since that night. Grant is now a detective with the Seattle Police Department and long estranged from his sister. But his investigation into the bloody past of a high-class prostitute has led right to Paige's door, and what awaits inside is beyond his wildest imagining.

OVER ANYONE WHO ENTERS

His only hope of survival and saving his sister will be to confront the terror that inhabits its walls, but he is completely unprepared to face the truth of what haunts his sister's brownstone.

This 65,000-word novel also contains a bonus interview with Blake and Jordan.

PRAISE FOR THE WORKS OF BLAKE CROUCH

[In SNOWBOUND], Crouch builds suspense as lines blur between good and bad, and plot twists continue to the last sentence. Absolutely compelling.
BOOKLIST (STARRED REVIEW)

ABANDON…demands to be read in one sitting, so you can better appreciate the beauty of Crouch’s storytelling…[O]ne of those books that almost instantly puts you in the mind of a classic.
BOOKREPORTER

Weaving the past and present together with such seamless skill that from the prologue to the last page, this book captures the imagination. [ABANDON] has the arc and flow of a master storyteller. Easily my favorite book of this year.
CRIMESPREE MAGAZINE

Highly recommended, this is easily one of the best this year.
NEW MYSTERY READER MAGAZINE

ABANDON is terrific…a great storyteller hitting his stride.
LEE CHILD

Gut wrenching...the writing is tight, the plots exciting, the suspense unending...Crouch tops my list.
OTTAWA SUN

Expertly paced and viscerally effective, with many surprises and genuine chills.
KIRKUS REVIEWS

Blake Crouch is the most exciting new thriller writer I've read in years.
DAVID MORRELL

Harrowing...terrific...a whacked out combination of Stephen King and Cormac McCarthy.
PAT CONROY

Crouch delivers his description of place with vivid prose...his carefully crafted characters make the story immediate, intense and thoroughly believable.
DENVER POST

This is a complex, cleverly constructed novel of motive, and Crouch takes his time bringing us through the story...a great debut. Crouch is an author to watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mindblowing! June 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I devoured this book and it kept me on the edge of my seat, turning pages as fast as I could to see what was going to happen next! Although it's billed as a horror-slash-ghost story, it's neither, but in some ways, it is both. Puzzled? That's ok, that's how it's supposed to be, and when you get to the end, you'll forgive the authors their trespasses, because this story is THAT good. At its core, it explores love and family connection and even the meaning of our existence to the depths most novels just gloss over or shy away from. At times poignant and heart-wrenching, it is, without a doubt, utterly mind-blowing. And just when you think you might have things figured out, the world turns upside down. Again. Thank you to Blake Crouch (always a great read!) and Jordan Crouch (I look forward to more!) for a fantastic ride. Even the interview between brothers, talking about writing two main character siblings, was a joy to read. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Summer Ghost Stories Hit big with ERRIE June 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Who hasn't thought something might be hiding under the bed? Imagine finding out that you were right! And that something has the power to capture your mind and make you do things... horrible things. ERRIE, latest Crouch novel, takes the reader there and all around the greater Seattle area as the story unfolds. I enjoyed this fast-paced novel and the surprise twist at the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Page turner - though ending was not June 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I love Blake Crouch, and I was thrilled when he sent me his latest release for review. EERIE is a joint effort between the Crouch brothers, Blank and Jordan. If you like a fast paced book, then this if for you.

**Don't take any of my comments in such a way that I didn't like the book - I did. It was the ending that left me blank.**

Blake Crouch is a Plot writer -- which works well. He is able to weave suspense and mystery into the scene. While this does indeed have suspense, it was not as well done as previous books I have read by the same author.

EERIE starts with the back story. Two children, whose mother has died, suddenly find themselves on their own when their fathers car hits a truck head on. Flash forward 20+ years. The boy is now a man on the police force, investigating a mysterious disappearance. Per chance he reconnects with his younger sister but he soon becomes trapped in the same supernatural web that is slowly killing her. Seeing his life starting to slip away, he reaches out to the only person he can trust to help them escape the hidden demon under the bed.

++Possible Spoilers++

I found the book a page turner but far from frightening or suspenseful. Although this is a plot driven book, with 2-dimentional characters, it does not take away from the book.

The attempts at fleshing out the characters were for the most part unsuccessful. (again, not a detriment to the book) The romantic interest in the book was ambiguous. In fact, the hints were so subtle, it wasn't made clear until she declared her interest, and even then she declared it to herself. The death of a "close" friend and the grief displayed by the siblings is written but not shown. I wasn't connected to the character so when the friend died -- he just died.

First of all....I just need to say that this book should not have been named "Eerie" for I felt it was never close to being 'eerie spooky'....just basically a strange 'what is under the bed' story that had some intriguing ideas but fell short with a totally bizarre ending that left me a little cold and disappointed.

I was really looking forward to a good ghost story and this one turned into a something far from that. I did like the characters but they were not fleshed out enough to really care about them. The 'sick' house was a good story line to follow but somehow it just went downhill towards the end.

There was almost a good romance that wanted to blossom but it never got anywhere and that was a bit disappointing also. Overall....the story had some great ideas.....creepy car crash with children (I think that was probably the most haunting part of the book)....something under the bed (that is always a scary thing).....trapped in a house (another claustrophobic intense story line)...BUT....the last quarter of the book became just a bit too bizarre and confusing to really understand what happens and it hurts the book rather than help it. I think if the brothers write another book they should really work on the ending....make it more clean and to the point and not so lost on the reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta love mind benders! October 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like it when I discover another great author to read! This is the first book I have read by Blake and Jordan Crouch. I have just downloaded a second book by Blake Crouch ("Abandon" and so far I am lovin' it). I read some of the prior reviews and apparently some had trouble with the ending. I'm not sure if I would continue to read books if I knew how it ended! I may be wrong but it seems like there could be a sequel to this....at least that is what I got from the ending but even if there is not, it was a good ending because it was unexpected and it makes you ask questions and ponder over it. My mom is here with me and she promptly ordered "The Pines"...after I gushed over "Eerie", which I will get after I finish reading "Abandon". Not everyone will like this book, but I think most will, especially if you like Stephen King, Koonts, or just a damn good book!

It keeps you guessing till almost the end. The relationship of the characters is good and not over consuming but enough to let you know who is who.
