David Morrell, true-life member of the Special Operations Association and the Association of Former Intelligence Officers, weaves a harrowing story. Patrick G. Lawlor narrates the first-person account of journalist Frank Balenger, who joins a group of "creepers," urban archaeologists who illegally enter structures to unearth mysteries of the past. New Jersey's Paragon Hotel--built by a wealthy neurotic as a fortress against the outside world--is slated for demolition. Lawlor's voice is fraught with tension as the explorers encounter a claustrophobic's nightmare of diminishing walls, contracting hallways, and tunnels full of secrets. Lawlor fills the listener's ears with heart-stopping terror. Definitely not for the timid. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
