Written by Paul Emil, ‘The Spook House’ fuses a fun, keep-the-light-on horror story with timely undertones of Government secrecy. Inviting readers to step into a haunted house like no other, the novel is resonating with readers from coast to coast.
Campbell, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/09/2013 -- For decades, horror has been a staple of the literary landscape. Wanting to take the genre to the next level, California’s Paul Emil fuses traditional horror facets with the modern-day scary potential of Government secrecy.
After seeing God and then the Devil, Jacob Abrams makes a decision: No more drugs. Fresh out of high school, Abrams joins the Army, thinking it would be a good new beginning. He's wrong. After some serious screw-ups, Abrams gets transferred to a base in the middle of nowhere where he is trained to do dangerous house-to-house searches. As a final exam, he and his team are ordered to sweep and clear what appears to be a stereotypical "haunted house.” Trapped inside, he realizes to his horror why he and these men were chosen for this mission – The Army expects no one to get out of this house alive.
As the author explains, the book offers readers an escape from reality.
Emil says, “I want to stir readers' imaginations and emotions. I want to keep them desperate to know the answers to the mysteries and how the story will end.”
Since its release, the book has garnered a string of rave reviews.
“I read this book in one evening. It had all the elements of a mystery, horror and drama story all rolled into one. Highly engaging read,” says W. Sell, who reviewed the book on Amazon.
Linda Scholz was equally impressed, adding, “Loved this book! Really makes you think about what you would do in similar situations and if you were a pawn in someone else's game.”
Amazon reviewer Allen Gamboa describes the book saying, “Fun,scary, twisted. I really enjoyed this story. You really don’t know where you’re going until you get there. A refreshing take on the haunted house genre. Can’t wait to read something else by Paul Emil!”
With the book’s popularity set to increase, interested readers are urged to purchase their copies as soon as possible.

I am a native Californian from the Bay Area and I love the weather and being outdoors. I spend a lot of time using computers for work and for fun, and I balance that out by practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu, which I’ve trained in for over 12 years.
