In Association with
Jack and Liz Kitch move to Angel Hill, Missouri, with their son, Joey, hoping for a better life. Jack gets a job with a tech company, and Liz spends her days redoing the rooms in their new three-story home. Everything seems to be going well until strange noises on the second and third floors start keeping Liz and Joey awake. Jack hears things in the night, too, but he just rationalizes that it’s Liz or Joey moving around, using the bathroom and whatnot, and he returns to sleep.

Jack believes that there’s a rational explanation for anything out of the ordinary. His friend and co-worker, Charley, tries to convince him that Angel Hill—especially the house that Jack has moved his family into—is a hotbed of paranormal activity, but Jack’s not buying it. Even when confronted by chilling experiences of his own, he still doesn’t believe it, leaving Liz to deal with the unhappy ghosts alone.

The haunting begins to escalate, putting the Kitches in danger—especially Joey. And if Liz can’t convince Jack that something’s very wrong on the third floor, all may not end well.

Finally—a haunted-house ghost story that gave me the chills as I read it at night. The Third Floor is awesomely creepy, and author C. Dennis Moore brings it all together wonderfully, leaving readers satisfied and even a little surprised at the end.

Jack is a perfectly close-minded character who has an answer for everything. Several times, I found myself wanting to punch him in the face—especially when he makes Liz feel stupid after telling him something about the house. Liz, on the other hand, deals with it all remarkably well, and you’ll admire her courage to stay in a house with such a harrowing reputation. When she’s finally had enough, she fights back, making her a character that you’ll root for.

The Third Floor is the quintessential ghost story—the kind that you don’t find every day. Any story that can make me jump and curse my cat when he walks through the house has done a remarkable job with scare tactics—and The Third Floor fits the bill perfectly. The faint of heart need not read—because it will cause mild nightmares and sleepless nights. However, if you’re like me and you enjoy that creepy sensation that a scary novel can bring on, pick up a copy of The Third Floor and be prepared for the heebie-jeebies that follow.
