From Douglas Clegg, award-winning author of The Hour Before Dark and The Children's Hour, comes a nightmarish vision of Washington, D.C. where a new horror is born within the walls of an ancient house -- haunted by a diabolical ritual and a terrifying legacy of the past."A white knuckle read from beginning to end -- Clegg delivers!" - John Saul."The tension seldom flags as this tale builds to a grisly, suspense-filled climax. As in Goat Dance , his first book, Clegg pulls out the stops of terror: cannibalism, the devil, good magic turned to evil, grave-robbing and the undead all make this a chilling story." -- Publisher's Weekly.THEY CALL IT THE SCREAMING HOUSERachel Adair thought Draper House in Washington, D.C, would be the perfect place to try and start a family.But as soon they move into the century-old townhouse, the nightmares begin: horrific images of the child Rachel lost; the unforgivable sins of Hugh's father; scenes of blood-curdling rituals . . . and the scraping sounds of an even greater terror that lives within the walls . . .BAPTIZED IN A RITUAL OF DARKNESSIn the late 1960s, Draper House was just a crumbling tenement. Now, a young couple, hopeful for their future, have arrived -- to wake the house from its long sleep.About the AuthorDouglas Clegg wrote Breeder in the house in which it was set in Washington, D.C.
