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 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.

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.
