The Agony House

by Cherie Priest

ISBN: 9780545934299

SKU: 11112666



A haunted old house, a killer ghost, and a long-lost comic come to life in another spectacular package of novel and comics from Cherie Priest, author of I Am Princess X.
Denise Farber has just moved back to New Orleans with her mom and step-dad. They left years ago after Hurricane Katrina and are back now, wagering the last of their family's money on fixing up an old, run-down house and converting it to a bed and breakfast.
When the unexplained noises start, that seems a little weird. Same too for the fact that nothing seems to work around the house...even when it should. But when floors start collapsing suddenly and deadly objects fall everywhere – and voices start speaking to Denise – she knows that something more sinister lies hidden.
Could the answers lie in an old comic book that Denise finds in the abandoned attic...the lost last work of a famous artist who apparently lived here? Denise isn't going anywhere, so she must unravel the mystery, on the pages and off them, if she and her family are to survive...
