"Ron McLarty can do no wrong as he spins this exciting, sometimes harrowing, story of two young brothers, Roland and Thomas. Orphaned, they long to escape the clutches of the awful and frightening Madame Vickers, who runs "The House on the Hill." Roland, the younger brother, narrates the story as an adult looking back on his childhood. Each character is brought to life with a unique voice, and McLarty is particularly accomplished at capturing the female characters. He sends a chill down one's spine whenever Madame Vickers arrives on the scene. The production itself is not burdened by music or other distractions. Its simplicity allows one to be swept up in the action as McLarty works his magic. B.H. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
