For the first time in her life, Allie Prescott is alone. She’s left her husband, Jack, and moved out of their comfortable home. Now she’s living in a small second-floor apartment in a not-so-nice part of town and working as a waitress in a downtown restaurant. She’s struggling to figure out what she wants to do with the next stage of her life.
As much as Allie wants to be alone, what she doesn’t know is that even when she’s in her apartment … especially late at night … she is not alone.
She is never alone.
Unseen eyes are watching her. Pale, ghostly shapes slip in and out of view. Faint, whispering voices tease her in the darkness.
The spirits who haunt her apartment have been there for a very long time … alone and waiting.
Now they’re beginning to manifest themselves because they know — and Allie will soon learn — that they have been waiting for her and her life will never be the same …
“Waiting is a classic Rick Hautala book, with the claustrophobic, visceral creepiness that characterizes almost all his novels.”
