Jack and Liz Kitches, along with their young 6 year old, Joey, have bought a house in Angel Hill, Missouri. They moved from Texas in order for Jack to take a new job in Angel Hill, and all three of them are pretty excited about relocating. While the job turns out to be a good decision for Jack, the house they bought might not have been. Almost from the day they move in, the nightmares start. And so do the strange whispers, odd noises, and the feeling that something keeps climbing into bed with them. While Liz is convinced there are ghosts in the house, Jack is a pragmatist, and dismisses the notion.

They soon discover that their home was the site of a gristly murder. Years before, a father killed his kids and then committed suicide in the house, and Liz is convinced that the father and the kids are haunting their home. But Jack, despite having seen and heard some odd things himself, still refuses to believe the house is haunted. Liz decides to take matters into her own hands and has the house blessed. It becomes obvious that the blessing did not work, and things are getting worse. Way worse.

As a sucker for ghost stories and haunted house tales, I grabbed this one as soon as I heard about it. I enjoyed the novel, it was a fairly quick read and it had genuine moments of suspense and terror. I had read one of the authors previous outings, Revelations, and enjoyed it so much I was looking forward to this one, and I wasn't disappointed. While I thought the first third of The Third Floor was a tad bit conventional, the last two thirds took a great turn toward the macabre and I wound up finishing the story in one sitting. Based on the two novels of his that I've read as well as many of his short stories, I can easily recommend this author to all horror fans. The Third Floor would be a great place to start with his work if you are not familiar with it.

This is the first scary haunted house book I have read in along time. Very good character development. You need that with any novel to make you care about them, which captures you and keeps you engrossed in the book. It is a slow build of intense, suspense all the way to the shocking end. It had some very good terrifying, heart stopping moments. The whole town of Angel Hill was full of ghost's past, evil doings, and what made it even stranger was the people who lived in the town all their lives were proud of this.........

Reading this novel will teach you a good lesson before buying a house somewhere unknown. Investigate the entire area. If it 's selling really cheap there is a big reason why. So, you need to read the book to find out if Jack, Liz, and son Joey survive in their own house. If I tell you anymore it will ruin it, so why don't you step into the thrilling "funhouse"....... You won't be disappointed.....

I happen to love creepy, scary haunted house scenarios-especially if they aren't laden with the usual blood and gore descriptions. This one scared the heck out of me. I actually had to turn my lamp on to read it at night. Some things did bother me, but not enough to interfere with the reading enjoyment. One was the constant explaining of the Male protagonist's character and his guitar. But then again, I am not into guitars. Another would be the fact that the same character would be SO blind to all the changings taking place around him. It seemed a bit unrealistic. Although, I very much liked the approach of how the female protagonist did not become a hysterical nag about the things she was experiencing, I.e., letting her husband see something for himself. All in all, it was good, spooky fun for a cheap price. I very much like this author. Will definitely read more from him.

"What the hell did we wake up when we came here?" -The Third Floor.

The following quote is not intended as a relatively insignificant `spoiler' for this book review as it used used to highlight a point that this reviewer thinks should be considered when approaching C. Dennis Moore's modern day haunted house story, `The Third Floor'. In his afterword the author comments, "The novel you've just read, THE THIRD FLOOR, is very loosely based on a true story. While the main events of the story didn't happen, many of the smaller occurrences did.". Moore then goes on to flesh out the back story behind his modern-day tale of things that go bump, crash and even wallop in the night, affording the reader an interesting insight into what prompted him to write the novel. Unfortunately while the author's intent is seemingly genuine, ultimately the execution is decidedly lacking.

Jack Kitch, his wife Liz and Jack's son from a previous marriage Joey, make the move from their struggling existence in Houston to the promise of a seemingly idyllic new home in Angel Hill, Missouri. Jack works for the electronics company `Fett Technologies' and has been relocated to take up a better paid position. Finding a house for them to live in proves be shockingly easy with Jack purchasing a monstrously sized three story house near the centre of the municipality. A house with an attractively moderate price tag. And of course, a house with a distasteful and minatory history.

Moore's narrative begins feverishly quickly, describing the young family's arrival late at night with a brevity of prose and a lightly descriptive touch, hinting at the torments to come with Liz observing, "Even with a street lamp in front of their house, it was dark..
