Teaser Tuesdays: The Night Strangers

This week my teaser lines come from Chris Bohjalian's The Night Strangers: Chip and Emily Linton and their twin daughters have just moved into their new home -- a huge old Victorian house in a remote area of New England.
If they noticed a door with thirty-nine carriage bolts partially hidden by a moldering pile of coal, the image never registered in either of their minds....
It was only on their third afternoon there, when Chip Linton descended the basement steps with their first ever load of laundry in their new home, that he would sense something from the corner of his eye and turn toward it, realizing as the hairs on the back of his neck began to prickle that behind all that coal in the corner was a door. (p.18)
Things are just about to get very weird.
