9780060878160: The Walker in Shadows

The house next door to Pat Robbins—eerily identical to the home Pat shares with her college-aged son, Mark—has been empty for years, the darkness within seeming to warn all to stay away. Now new tenants are moving in: affable Josef Friedrichs and his lovely daughter, Kathy, who has stolen Mark's heart on first glance. But something is not right—something old and secret lurking in the shadows that fresh paint and new furnishings cannot mask or exorcise. There is evil alive in the heart of the house next door—and it means to feed on the fears of two families . . . and drag Kathy Friedrichs with it into peril.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Peters (writing as Barbara Michaels) was born and brought up in Illinois and earned her Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago's famed Oriental Institute. Peters was named Grandmaster at the inaugural Anthony Awards in 1986, Grandmaster by the Mystery Writers of America at the Edgar® Awards in 1998, and given The Lifetime Achievement Award at Malice Domestic in 2003. She lives in an historic farmhouse in western Maryland.

From AudioFile:

Laurel Lefkow's characterization amplifies the dated gender stereotypes of this mystery surrounding a Civil War-era house. The female characters (a mother and the girl her son is infatuated with) speak in voices as lightweight as one would expect in women who are deferential to all males. The son and the father of the girl exude machismo as they vie for the women's affections and seek to outmaneuver one another in finding the reason for the disturbances in the house. The narrative voice is a bit annoying in its movement between full-voice and a half-whisper. However, as the book progresses, the volume ranges become less pronounced, and it becomes easier to find a comfortable and effective listening volume.
