About the Book

Join the adventure of four curious boys as they dare to visit a suspected haunted house.

"So far our night had been uneventful and now we were at the pinnacle of our quest. If there was nothing up here, there was nothing to find and our adventure would be over. There would be no story to tell and we had risked getting into big trouble to come up empty handed.

Still, as I stood there at the top of the stairs, I couldn't shake the feeling that there was something in the cold darkness of that house: a presence beyond that of four curious boys. Maybe it was a sensation left over from the previous occupants, or my imagination running wild."

"I've been waiting a long time to get this story finished. I believe it will be appealing to adults and youth. This is only the beginning of the Questors' adventures."
-Louis Paul DeGrado
