Something fishy is going on in that haunted house…

In the Shadow of Spindrift House
by Mira GrantJesse Vilinsky (Narrator)

A haunted house story, that has an unexpected source and resolution. I was surprised how much build-up there was for this relatively short audio. A very fluffy, meandering start, focusing on the relationships between the four main characters. And a very Lovecraftian ending, pretty dark and not quite in synch with the beginning. 

I kept wondering if there are more stories with these four characters as teen detectives of the unusual and bizarre, because previous cases kept being referenced. That could be fun.

I highly recommend to chase this audio with Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant, if you want to read more by the author.

PS: This is set in Maine, which is also haunted by another famous horror author. Maine must be a very scary place.

My review of Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant is here…

“Do I think they found mermaids? 
Yes. Of course I do. 
And I think the mermaids ate them all.”

And after that one you should read Rolling in the Deep by Mira Grant. My review is here…

Aaand after finding Spindrift House for free with my Audible subscription, I had another search and downloaded another Mira Grant freebie: Kingdom of Needle and Bone 

„It begins with a fever. By the time the spots appear, it’s too late: Morris’s disease is loose on the world, and the bodies of the dead begin to pile high in the streets. When its terrible side consequences for the survivors become clear, something must be done, or the dying will never stop.“
