How To Sell a Haunted House

Books on Tape. Jan. 2023. 13 hrs. ISBN 9780593591840. $95. HORROR
Siblings Louise and Mark Joyner are left with the task of selling their childhood home after their parents’ deaths. The problem? Louise and Mark, driven apart by a rough childhood, have not talked to each other in years, and both are facing drained bank accounts due to a pandemic-caused economic downturn. When they enter the house, they notice the attic is boarded up, and newspapers are covering the mirrors. Neither one can imagine the horror and secrets they are about to encounter. Hendrix (Final Girls Support Group) has written another novel in his signature style, brimming with humor, horror, and heart. He delves into family secrets and the dangers they pose, even generations later. The narrative is Chucky meets The Exorcist with a dash of comedy, leaving listeners simultaneously chuckling and perhaps a little sick to their stomachs. Narrators Jay Aaseng and Mikhaila Aaseng give stunning performances of the siblings and an especially unsettling portrayal of the creepy puppets that inhabit the house.
VERDICT Hendrix is poised to be one of the greats of horror fiction, and libraries will want to put this audio at the top of their lists. A must-add for any horror collection.
