Built on the Upper West Side, the elegant Breviary claims a regal history. But despite 14B's astonishingly low rental price, the recent tragedy within its walls has frightened away all potential tenants . . . except for Audrey Lucas. No stranger to tragedy at thirty-two, a survivor of a fatherless childhood and a mother's hopeless dementia, Audrey is obsessively determined to make her own way in a city that often strangles the weak. But is it something otherworldly or Audrey's own increasing instability that's to blame for the dark visions that haunt her . . . and for the voice that demands that she build a door? A door it would be true madness to open . .

A quite bizarre, "haunted house horror" story. I found it difficult to read, and very chilling, as this quite psychotic, obsessive/compulsive young woman attempts to live in an infamous apartment building in NYC that is one step away from being condemned, replete with a history of suicides & murder. This book gets inside the woman's tortured head to the point that the reader cannot tell reality from fantasy to a really frightening, ever-growing degree. I found it quite interesting that in the author's acknowledgements she admits that before writing this book she was reading things such as Shirley Jackson's "Haunting of Hill House", one of the greatest ever "haunted house" tales, and the influence is pretty obvious!
