A Creepy, Frightening Story; Just right for Halloween.

Clegg's best yet. Harrow House is an abandoned mansion (or is it abandoned??). It belonged to a madman, then was a school, now only the ghosts live there. Ivy Martin wants to bring it back to life. Jack Fleetwood wants to know it's secrets. A nightmare of a story that won't let you go. I stayed up until I finished, and then coldn't sleep...'they' were still with me.

I've purchased all four Harrow books in the series. Sadly, the last in the series, titled THE ABANDONED, is the only one I'd give five stars. THE INFINITE story line drags on and on for two thirds of the book. Lots of grammatical errors. I'd fire my editor and proof reader if I were the author. I didn't read the books in order, and the reader doesn't need to. What I DID like was the character development, the interaction between them, and the last third of the novel. I think I bought this for $2.99, so it was worth it. Try THE ABANDONED. It will keep your interest throughout.

    Good read

    A great horror novel with a disturbing and thought-provoking ending...Every bit as good as authors; Anne Rice, John Saul , or Sherry A Mauro!

    THE PERFECT NOVEL FOR HALLOWEEN!!!

    THE INFINITE by Douglas Clegg is the final novel that makes up the trilogy (THE NIGHTMARE HOUSE & MISCHIEF) of Harrow House. Think of this particular book as a tribute to Shirley Jackson¿s THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE and Richard Matheson¿s HELL HOUSE. The newest in the series continues a year or so after the burning of Harrow Academy--where MISCHIEF left off. The house itself wasn¿t destroyed in the fire that took the lives of several students¿only the sections that had been built on to it to accommodate the student population when it was turned into an academy. Since the fire, Harrow House has claimed the life of a sixteen-year-old girl who died of a heart attack while she and her friends spent the night in it to see if the house was really haunted. Now, Ivy Martin (the former girlfriend of Jim Hook¿s late brother in MISCHIEF) has purchased Harrow House and has spent a large sum of money to renovate the place in an effort to get it back to its original condition. She has also hired a small team of psychics (Frost Crane, Chet Dillinger and Cali Nytbird), led by Jack Fleetwood, to investigate the powers of the house and hopefully to open a portal into the afterlife so that she can once again reunite with the person she loved so deeply. All three of the psychics have their own personal problems and dark secrets to deal with, and this will have a direct bearing on what happens to them inside Harrow House. Jack Fleetwood, who¿s in love with Ivy, is perhaps the most normal of the team¿certainly the nicest. Jack¿s albatross, however, is his teenage daughter, Mira, who has accompanied him to this mansion of darkness and death in order to get out of school for a week. This will definitely be a vacation she won¿t soon forget. Not one of these people suspects the danger that they¿re in as the house lures them into a state of complacency and then begins to gradually play upon their fears and weaknesses, until it¿s too late and the killing starts with a vengeance. Prepare yourself for a high body count! While not as tense and suspenseful as THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE, nor as violent and sexual as HELL HOUSE, Douglas Clegg¿s novel is still an excellent addition to the ¿haunted house¿ genre. He creates a dark, morbid atmosphere within the confines of Harrow House, easing the reader forward to the evitable outcome of death and destruction. Each of the characters is written with detail to the nuances that make us human, if not very likable. Since the house is really the star of the novel, I wish Mr. Clegg hadn¿t spent the first 140 pages dealing with the history of the three psychics, but rather have started off the novel with their arrival at Harrow House and then filled in the background information as the story moved along. More time could therefore have been spent inside the house where all of the fun actually takes place. I loved the recorded history of Harrow House as presented in the diary of Estaban Palliser (a.k.a. Justin Gravesend) and in The Infinite Ones by Isis Claviger. I found myself drawn into these two writings more deeply than I would¿ve expected, wanting to learn in greater detail about the people mentioned (such as Matilde Gravesend and Aleister Crowley, as well as Crowley¿s wife, Rose Kelly, and his lover, Victor Neuburg). I hope Mr. Clegg will one day present the complete text of Isis Claviger¿s book. That would make a most intriguing story. With a beautiful wrap-around dust jack that has a terrific art design by Franco and a fabulous price, THE INFINITE by Douglas Clegg is a great buy and the perfect addition to your horror collection.
