The White Room
By Rick Hautala
The old Harris house has been vacant for years.
A summer vacation in Milton, Maine, would he the best thing for Tim Harris, his wife, Polly, and their young son, Brian. Restoring Tim’s childhood home to its original splendor would help Polly restore her own life after a breakdown that left her fragile and afraid. But for Polly, it’s the beginning of new nightmare.…
This summer it’s coming to life.
Human bones are discovered in a nearby construction site. Brian nearly drowns while playing with a mysterious new playmate. Polly hears whispers no one else can hear. She sees a young girl no one else can see. And Polly’s been warned. Something else lives in the Harris house. It’s long dead but not forgotten. And it’s not forgiving.
In the dark at the top of the stairs, it’s waiting, in … the white room.
