The House loomed over the city like a beacon of malevolent evil. People spoke of it only in whispers. Others tried to own it, eventually coming out in a body bag. Darkness dripped from its windows, spilt blood made up the foundations of its property, and Satan seemed to have a claim on the land. Houses built along its borders nailed their windows shut so that they wouldn't have to see it. Evil resided within its ancient walls and did not care who knew it!
Manchester House was a legend - the "Mount Everest" of Haunted Houses!
Professor Jonathon Holzer knew he had scored the opportunity of a lifetime. With an international crew of paranormal investigators, and a mysterious "shaman" named Indrid Night, the man hoped to find some answers. There was one proviso: The City Council was not aware of his venture, and the police could not help him. He would be alone.

If you are looking for a good haunted house/ghost story, this is the book for you! Through a Glass Darkly, by Donald Allen Kirch, creeped me out more than I want to admit.
This book has everything a good ghost story needs for maximum horror. A haunted house, a disgruntled ghost (or several), a professor, a team of investigators, a holy type of guy, and a couple of psycho’s thrown in for good measure. The back story is disturbing and detailed, though it does still leave a little bit to the imagination. Sometimes our imagination is scarier than reality anyway!
Through a Glass Darkly is one of those books that leaves you curious as to what could come next. There are so many twists and turns. The history of the house and its tenants was something I enjoyed, though I do wish it had been a little more in depth. Don’t get me wrong, we are given plenty of information to know what happened, but I would like to have been told more about it a little sooner in the story. That’s just me being selfish though.
This author has done a fantastic job of providing the reader with a thorough and interesting book that I will be recommending to all of my friends. If you have read and enjoyed Kendare Blake’s Anna Dressed in Blood, you will love this. It’s like that book on steroids, and I LOVED that book.
