The Eaton is the debut novel of John K. Addis. Spanning over 100 years of mid-Michigan history, but written in the gruesome style of ‘80s horror classics, The Eaton tells the story of Sam Spicer, who purchases the dilapidated Michigan Central Railroad Depot in Eaton Rapids with the dream of opening a hot new martini bar. But when he and his friends discover an abandoned underground hotel directly beneath the property, they must discover what happened to the original guests—before their own time runs out.
"***** (5 Stars) - Reading John K. Addis was like reading an eighties horror movie. It’s fast paced, macabre and full of gritty atmospheric settings, along with a relentlessly chilling plot from an author who’s mastered the genre!" - Catherine Rose Putsche, Top #40 Regional Goodreads Reviewer, Author of "The Surgeon’s Son"
"***** (5 Stars) - The Eaton is the best kind of horror. Some of the images are so vivid that I had to put The Eaton down for a few minutes, let myself relax, take a few breaths, and then I could continue. This book is so well plotted, and the characters feel so real, that you will be as terrorized as they are. You will have to keep reading to see what happens next, even if you are afraid to find out." - Bill Mackela, Bill’s Book Reviews
"***** (5 Stars) - Amazing debut by a really talented author. As the action unfolds, and we start jumping back and forth in time, the narrative becomes irresistible. This is one of those books that will stick with you after you read it—Addis does a great job of putting you in the action." - Alec Drachman, Goodreads
"***** (5 Stars) - I would recommend The Eaton to anyone who loves a good horror story with rich, well-developed characters who all have their secrets they would like to keep hidden, but are faced with a horror they’ve never met. If you ever hoped to find tunnels under the floorboards of an old house, or imagined you were on some sort of expedition to discover secrets that have been buried for years, you might want to try The Eaton." - Melanie Marsh, FangFreakinTasticReviews.com
