Review

Rating: 8

The Orsk furniture store in Cleveland, a shiny Americanized version of a certain Swedish chain, is the setting for this haunted house novel. Amy and her co-workers are the typical assortment of employees, with the others ranging from the gung-ho assistant manager Basil to the spinster Ruth Anne to hobbyist paranormal investigators Trinity and Matt. Lacking only the ghost ambulance, the story is otherwise strongly reminiscent of the Danish film The Kingdom with things like the site of the store having a dark past and everything that happens building to a crescendo of doom.
