The house echoes with a terrible agonised sobbing, and Effie, trying to overcome her fears, recruits a spiritualist to deal with its threatening vibrations. Masterton has once again contributed to the overcrowded hall closet of horror literature. In his latest book, Craig Bellman, a berserk type A, has an encounter with some street toughs and a hammer. Male readers will wince.

I have read other works by Graham Masterton, and I found him to be a very good horror writer. In his latest work, The House That Jack Built, it starts out a bit slow at first, but picks up the pace. The setting in New Orleans is what really made me pick up this book since I have read other horror stories by Anne Rice and Poppy Z. Brite that took place in the same area. It was a good ghost story and I found myself finishing it in what seemed to be a day and half. It isn't the greatest book of horror that I have read so far, but it was enjoyable and I think it was worth my time.

Of the Graham Masterton books I have read, this one drew me in and held my attention from beginning to end .

Of the Graham Masterton books I have read, this one drew me in and held my attention from beginning to end better than any of them. I love a good haunted house story, big creepy houses hold so many possibilities. The book starts out strong, we have a jerk named Craig who is a pretentious lawyer type who manages to get himself into some fairly gory trouble. Spot the lyric time? After the Harrow books by Douglas Clegg and this, The House That Jack Built by Graham Masterton, remind me never to invest in real estate near the Hudson river. Yes, it's haunted house time again on my recent run of Leisure published haunted howlers.

Graham Masterton (born 16 January 1946 in Edinburgh) is a British horror author. The House That Jack Built, 1995. The Chosen Child, 1996. House of Bones, 1998. This novel was adapted in 1978 for the film The Manitou.

Masterton, is one of the great storytellers of horror. He writes America better than Americans. In fact I found my self confused by the Brittish syntax of the text. Anyhow, the finer points of this novel are origin of the haunting and atmosphere. I found the house especially scary in that it was in disrepair and not quite livable.

This is probably the fourth or fifth Graham Masterton book I've read- he's AMAZING! While this book was written many years ago (the 80's, I think?) like many of his books, there is a timeless quality that makes them even more fascinating in our overly-digitized age. I love books with very few characters because they become so well-rounded, and this book is one of those; it does have some rather descriptive violence in the very beginning, but don't let that turn you away from the story- that's just a means to move the story along so the characters can get to where they're going (if you do buy the book- that statement will make sense!). I don't want to say too much more because I don't want to give away any spoilers. Suffice to say, if you like other Masterton books, or Stephen King or any "horror/paranormal in the everyday mundane" you'll love this book too!

When I started it, I worried that it would follow the path of another well-known book, but it didn't. The descriptions were well-done. It is the tale of a man obsessed with a house that becomes more obsessed with him and the people who are sucked into the horror that is Valhalla. Masterton is always a excellent writer and I enjoyed the premise.

This is the third Graham Masterton book I've read. I enjoyed Devil In Grey, and Mirrors just as much as this one. This story was creepy and just a tad like "The Shining" (The Shining is a big step above this one however). I won't say it was terribly "scary" I mean I didn't feel like sleeping with the lights on or anything but it was fun, fairly unique and a fast read. I love his writing style. I do recommend.

This was a thrilling and unique take on the traditional haunted house story. I did find that there were more moments of gore than fright, but overall it's simply typical Masterton. I enjoyed watching the surprises unfold, though if you're looking for a more traditional ghost story or haunting, there's many other authors to choose from, including John Harwood, Peter Straub, and James Herbert.
