Newly-urban Audrey has grown up disadvantaged due to poverty and a bipolar mother, but despite this she manages to have put herself through school, and claimed at least a precarious spot at a top-of-the-pile chic New York architectural firm. Having split up with her boyfriend and in need of an apartment, she finds a seemingly perfect haven in an incredibly affordable, fabulous and roomy 19th century building whose only drawback is that, due to its weird and dangerous architectural style and past infamy, is satanically cursed. Still--that woodwork! But Audrey's poor self-image, lack of confidence, and somewhat menacing former boyfriend render her a shaky match for the visions, voices, and violence that relentlessly ensue, and are good, creepy fun. 'Historic' newspaper items sprinkled throughout the story and a highly detailed but entirely fictional architectural style lend frightening realism.
