It Lives In The Basement: where The Twilight Zone meets H.R. Giger’s Alien.

One day your three cats disappear. The next day, your girlfriend. And you think something that’s living in your basement killed them.

A strange case lands on Lieutenant Flynn’s desk, as he’s assigned to investigate the disappearance of a couple and their three cats. It’s as if they have vanished to thin air. A few years later, Detective Pete Alvarez investigates a gruesome death of an immigrant in the same house. Along with Detective Carter, they must uncover the truth behind the disappearance… but what they discover is evidence of something completely different.

Do they dare go into the basement to confront it?

If you don’t want to be terrified, don’t read this book in the dark or while alone! It Lives in the Basement by Sahara Foley is a gripping, fast paced horror tale that is essentially three separate stories in one. Beginning with the disappearance of a young couple and their three cats, the house on 18th Street is responsible for countless deadly incidents, including the disappearance of the detective investigating the case. As the police become more and more involved in the second part of the story, with the partner of the original missing police officer called to a grisly crime scene at the same house, a detective with a special background lends a hand in trying to deal with the ancient evil that has manifested itself on the property. The action continues into the third section of the tale with a sighting of the suspected evil creature and the attempts to capture it. From the edge of a moonlit lake back to the basement of the 18th Street house, a team of officers and a large mammal specialist follow the creature into the sewer tunnels below the city. Will they finally succeed in catching or killing the beast?

This is one of the scariest stories to come along in a while. Gripping, horrifying, and almost over the edge of belief, It Lives in the Basement by Sahara Foley keeps you turning the pages as you continually look over your shoulder. The characters are diverse and dedicated to their mission and you just wish you could get their attention to help them through the non-stop action. This is certainly well worth reading, as long as you lock your basement door and keep the lights on. Great book! I couldn’t put it down.

Sahara Foley’s horror collection, It Lives in the Basement, is guaranteed to bring a smile of delight to the face of any horror fan lucky enough to pick this book up and read it. I love horror, but having grown up enjoying the works of Poe, Lovecraft and Derleth, rarely come across horror tales that reach the sublimely scary heights those classic authors mastered. This series of interconnected tales does just that. Foley’s work is also an inspired police procedural at the same time, as the Omaha police follow a most unusual suspect in a series of disappearances and a particularly brutal murder. Foley’s story is marvelous! The plot sizzles with tension, and the characters are compelling and real people you quickly come to care about. It Lives in the Basement is as good — and as terrifying — as it gets, and it’s most highly recommended.
