I loved this story! I felt as if I was experiencing the haunting along with the family. When I wasn't reading it I was looking forward to the time I could start reading again.

At the age of 24 the author becomes a landlord. His pleasure at purchasing a 2 family apartment building at such a low price is short lived though it takes him awhile to admit all of their troubles are due to ghosts. The author tells the story of what he and his wife experienced, as well, as his tenants. When his first floor tenants moved out his sister and her family moved in. It did not take long for the fun and games to end and the terror began.

A must read for anyone that loved the paranormal. ( )

In Becker’s novel, he recounts the story of his purchase of a bargain house. The house needed work as most houses do, but they also were tasked with evicting the “crazy” woman living in the downstairs apartment. Becker did both before moving his family into their new home.

In a straight forward, no-nonsense approach, Becker tells the story of the negative affect the property had on all those who entered and the Church’s refusal to assist them which finally forced him to seek out help from paranormal investigators.

This is the story of a haunted house—a house haunted by several ghosts—and the impact it had on the living. While not told in a sensational manner, it is told with such chilling detail it made the hair on the back of arm stand up and take notice.

Lovers of the supernatural will get a thrill until the very end. ( )

"24 year old Ed Becker purchases a house for himself and his expecting wife; a two-flat apartment building, which would allow them to live in one apartment and rent the other. What Ed doesn't know, is that there are already tenants residing in this building that he cannot evict... Skeptical and street-smart, Ed has a difficult time coming to the realization that this apartment is home to the paranormal. As tensions begin to build between his spouse and himself, he attributes the stress to the new lifestyle they had accumulated, as both property owners and new parents. Coupled with the efforts of working long hours and restoring a dilapidated home, Ed ignores the unusual happenings that have no viable explanation. And what happens when something that wants to be noticed goes unacknowledged? Things escalate... Read this hauntingly true story, of one of the earliest televised exorcisms in the nation, brought to the forefront by NBC. Interviewed and reported by nationally known news correspondent, Carole Simpson, and conducted by nationally known psychic Joseph DeLouise and exorcist, Rev. William Derl-Davis. Go behind the scenes of the known history of this truly haunted home--one that shattered the dreams of a young couple, and the family that can never leave it."--P. [4] of cover.… (more)
