Their nearest neighbor, Sam Goodman, has bought the house next door, where Rebecca’s good friends lived until their deaths. Sam also rents out part of his property for the same neighbor to grow corn.
Rebecca is concerned that Michael has been talking about two different voices he’s been hearing. One – from the barn – is his father, he says. The other, even more disturbing, is from the cornfield, and he says that voice is from Mr. Skinner. Michael is only eight, but he has the ability to draw that Rebecca’s friend Franny did. He draws a very good likeness of his father, which Rebecca puts down to having seen pictures of him all over the house. However, the person he calls Mr. Skinner makes her skin crawl.
Little does anyone know that Mr. Skinner had been a former cell mate of Whalen, who had kidnapped Rebecca twice.
As the book progresses, learning about the man, Skinner, who adored Whalen before Whalen was released and Skinner escaped (after Whalen’s death) and why the police may not be broadcasting the fact of his escape scared me to death. What if this is going on right now, anywhere?
Whalen had a preference for basements. So, it seems, does Skinner. Only Skinner makes basements more terrifying. I’m glad our washer and dryer are upstairs and I have no reason at all to go into ours.
The last few chapters, as in The Remains, will have you holding your breath, reluctant to release air for fear you will be gasping in more in a paragraph or two.
Literally until the last chapter, when everything you are scared for for Rebecca to admit takes her where she needs to go comes true, you cannot help but be terrified for what comes next.
This is another edge of your seat, what the holy baloney can he have happen next, type of book. The characters (with the obvious exceptions of the boogeymen) are very likeable. You want to urge them on to the best life ever. Until we learn of Skinner. Then we are terrified for them. You know those movies where you scream at the character: don’t go into the basement. Well, here you go. There’s a reason for that! Loved this book and the one before it, and highly recommend it. Where’s Rebecca #3?
The things that seemed somewhat familiar in the book were referenced by the author - even threw in character and movie! I liked that he gave a kind of credit to the theme that inspired his own story!
