The Thing from the Lake

Gelesen von Roger Melin

(4,441 Sterne; 76 Bewertungen)

To get away from city life periodically, New Yorker Roger Locke purchases an abandoned farm house in rural Connecticut, and with the assistance of his cousin Phillida and her beau Ethan Vere, he sets about fixing up the place.

Immediately however, an unseen mysterious woman begins giving him warnings during nocturnal visits to leave the house at once. Soon he begins hearing strange ominous sounds emanating from the tiny lake at the back of the house coupled with a permeation of sickly odors. An evil presence then begins to visit him during the witching hours of the late night, challenging him to a battle of wits from which there can be only one victor.

Is his mysterious female visitor there to help and encourage him to flee from the house, or is she working in tandem with The Thing From the Lake?

A gripping, occasionally frightening tale, Ms. Ingram wastes no time in grabbing the reader into the story and manages to weave a tale that will leave the reader guessing at every turn of events. (Summary by Roger Melin)

The Thing from the Lake by Eleanor M. Ingram

(5 Sterne)

A gripping story well read. This is a tender love story on one side and a true tale of horror on the other. I was very pleasantly surprised with this download. Although first published in 1921 it carries well into the 21 century. I highly recommend it to any and all.

Mystery loves Company

This is a somewhat convoluted story, though every attempt is made by the Author to scare us, while charming us with beautiful hair & a precocious, if not rebellious character thrown into the storyline.....who's in love with,,,wait,,,a professional SKATER?? oh brother.....

different than my usual

(3 Sterne)

it was well read which made it easier to stay to the finish. it is a decent book just a bit slower than I prefer. if you enjoy a bit more other world sci-fi bent it may be great for you.

Very Good! Highly Recommend

That was a surprisingly good book. I expected to hear a hokey tale, easily seen through, but it is actually an excellent, (almost-) believable story.

great book!
