The Pendleton stands on the summit of Shadow Hill at the highest point of an old heartland city, a Gilded Age palace built in the late 1800s as a tycoon s dream home. Almost from the beginning, its grandeur has been scarred by episodes of madness, suicide, mass murder, and whispers of things far worse. But since its rechristening in the 1970s as a luxury apartment building, the Pendleton has been at peace. For its fortunate residents a successful songwriter and her young son, a disgraced ex-senator, a widowed attorney, and a driven money manager among them the Pendleton s magnificent quarters are a sanctuary, its dark past all but forgotten. But now inexplicable shadows caper across walls, security cameras relay impossible images, phantom voices mutter in strange tongues, not-quite-human figures lurk in the basement, elevators plunge into unknown depths. With each passing hour, a terrifying certainty grows: Whatever drove the Pendleton s past occupants to their unspeakable fates is at work again. Soon, all those within its boundaries will be engulfed by a deadly tide from which few have escaped. Dean Koontz transcends all expectations as he takes readers on a gripping journey to a place where nightmare visions become real and where a group of singular individuals hold the key to humanity s destiny. Welcome to 77 Shadow Street. Praise for the narration of 77 Shadow Street by Dean Koontz, performed by Peter Berkrot: Narrator Peter Berkrot opens the creaking door and invites listeners inside with a gentle, unassuming voice. Ignore that dark thing you saw out of the corner of your eye it s just a trick of the light. Berkrot performs with skill and assurance as strange voices, eerie sights, and inexplicable things take over the posh mansion. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"

Usually love Koontz, but this was really, really bad.

Certainly not Koontz's best work, but still a crazy ride. If there was a moral to this story, it would be that evil actions cannot be justified by good intentions.

I've never been disappointed in a Dean Koontz novel until i got 77 Shadow Street. Previous novels were about 1 or 2 persons or maybe a small group, but I didn't like all these poorly developed characters whom unpleasant things happen to. Some of these are more YUCK than horror. Like the tongue of a creature going all the way down the esophogus! I stuck it out for the first half of the novel, but I quit after CD 6 because the individuals in the building didn't even start to become a group in order to escape the building or unite to fight the evil.
