The Pendleton stands on the summit of Shadow Hill, a palace built in the late 19th century as a tycoon's dream home. But its grandeur has been scarred by episodes of madness, suicide and mass murder. Since being converted into luxury apartments in the 70s, however, the Pendleton has been at peace. For its fortunate residents -- among them ex-marine Bailey Hawk, songwriter Twyla Trahern and her young son Winny -- the Pendleton is a sanctuary, its dark past all but forgotten. But now inexplicable shadows caper across walls, security cameras relay impossible images, phantom voices mutter in strange tongues, not-quite-human figures lurk in the basement, elevators plunge into unknown depths. It seems that whatever drove past occupants to their unspeakable fates is at work again. As nightmare visions become real, a group of extraordinary individuals hold the key to humanity's destiny. Welcome to 77 Shadow Street.Read Less

I waited with great anticipation for this to arrive after reading the synopsis. It was a good storyline that just didn't live up to what it should have been. The building itself as a character was good, and the involuntary time travel of unsuspecting residents (past & present) is so rich in promise that what the story delivered was a let down. And it was distracting and a little frustrating to have the scene and characters change so abruptly after every few pages - it was impossible to connect with any individual or moment before it was replaced by a new scene. And while I'm given this moment to rant, why must EVERY character (of 20+?) have some bizarre incomprehensible name? Just a good book, not a great book. Not one I'll be reading a 2nd time.
