Overview

Audrey's Door by Sarah Langan

“Sarah Langan is an audaciously terrifying storyteller, and Audrey’s Door practically hums with frantic energy and hair-raising tension.”
New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen

Rosemary’s Baby meets The Shining behind Audrey’s Door—a masterwork of psychological suspense and supernatural terror from the acclaimed author of The Keeper and The Missing. Ramsey Campbell, Matthew Pearl, and David Morrell are among the ever-growing legion of fans of this Bram Stoker Award-winning writer who Peter Straub says, “combines a genuinely poetic sensibility with a taste for horror’s most bravura excesses.” Reviewers across the country have already compared Sarah Langan to H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, and Stephen King and her brilliantly, chillingly original Audrey’s Door solidifies her standing as one of America’s most exciting new masters of contemporary dark fantasy.

Following the break up with her fiancé Saraub and her mother's lapse into a coma, architect Audrey Lucas feels fortunate to find an apartment in Morningside Heights for under a $1000 a month as she was thinking of relocating to Queens. She moves into the historical Breviary, which was construed in 1861 and is an architect's delight with its rarely used "Chaotic Naturalism" style. Audrey is a bit taken aback to learn the previous occupant drowned her four small children before killing herself, but prefers bad vibes to the boroughs. Soon after moving in, Audrey's mind begins to lose its grip on sanity. Ghosts and other renters warn her to construct a door before it is too late although the other living occupants are urban hermits of sorts hiding behind the doors they each built. Still even as she is aware she is losing it, Audrey obsessively begins to build the door so they can escape AUDREY'S DOOR is an engaging haunted apartment house horror thriller that grips the readers mostly because of its Columbia University location; a seemingly unlikely place for a haunting unless you know the neighborhood overlooking Harlem. Audrey is a wonderful protagonist who is loaded with neurotic tendencies. Although the climax can be on a foggy day as far away as Hoboken, fans will enjoy Sarah Langan's tense Gotham thriller.
