Aidan Marlowe is the superstitious type. He’s been playing the same lottery numbers for fifteen years, never hitting the jackpot. Until now.
On the day of his wife’s funeral. Aidan struggles to cope with these two sudden extremes: instant wealth beyond his imagination and the loss of the only woman he’s ever loved, the mother of his twin children. But the money gives him and his kids options they didn’t have before. They can leave everything behind. They can start a new life in a new town. So they do.
But a huge new house and all the money in the world can’t replace what they’ve lost, and it’s not long before Aidan realizes he’s merely trading old demons for new ones. Because someone is watching him and his family very closely. Someone who knows exactly who they are, where they’ve come from, and what they’re trying to hide. Someone who will stop at nothing to get what they want…
Aidan lost his wife and won the lottery all in the same day. He decides to escape his old life and he buys a new home in a new city. After his family moves into the new house, strange letters start to arrive. Then the history of the house comes to light.
This is a story in which I could have cared less about Aidan. This very seldom happens to me. But, he just did not click with my psyche, not one little bit. That being said…there was something about this story which kept me listening. And…I am glad I did. The ending is twisted! I saw it coming but I enjoyed the fall out!
The narrator, Gary Bennett, did a very good job. Sometimes children’s voices are not done very well. But, he did a good job with Aidan’s children. That will always be a measuring stick for me. If you get the child’s voice wrong…I will dnf an audiobook in a flash.
