77 Shadow Street

This is an okay book written by Dean Koontz. The Pendleton stands on the summit of Shadow Hill at the highest point of an old heartland city, a Gilded Age palace built in the late 1800s as a tycoon’s dream home. Almost from the beginning, its grandeur has been scarred by episodes of madness, suicide, mass murder, and whispers of things far worse. But since its rechristening in the 1970s as a luxury apartment building, the Pendleton has been at peace. For its fortunate residents – a successful songwriter and her young son, a disgraced ex-senator, a widowed attorney, and a driven money manager among them – the Pendleton’s magnificent quarters are a sanctuary, its dark past all but forgotten.
