Dr. Monty Helfgott, a psychologist specializing in the education and treatment of children and adolescents diagnosed with a wide spectrum of disabilities who was awarded a doctoral degree from Columbia University, has completed his new book “Gilded Rage: Madness and Murder”: a chilling and gripping thriller of a family of the roaring twenties driven to madness and murder, and the young twenty-first century couple that purchases their house to renovate it, unwittingly becoming entangled in the evil that pervades the grounds.

In a prelude to set the scene of his tale, Helfgott writes, “The effect of terror is easily produced by abandoned, old mansions, suffering decay over decades of neglect. Terror generated by their intolerable ugliness are captured within bleak darkness of old Gothic estates. Stare at one from a distance, then peek through dark windows and one becomes conscious of a striking resemblance between fractured exterior walls and crumbling interiors. No human eye can fully capture the ruin portrayed as evil in the face of such a house fallen into a state of despair. Eye and mind may well become aware the house somehow projects its awake with creepy watchfulness staring out from dark screaming windows—a house drenched with the stain of madness, asleep yet always vigilant, its evil past deprived of redemption.

“Deftly capturing a supernatural appeal of a once-magnificent home, it finds itself within present circumstance totally abandoned. Watching its ponderous footprint upon surrounding acreage, one conjures up an impression that the deserted dwelling, consumed with memories, lurks ghostlike impregnated with recollections of past sufferings abandoned by the living or the dead—a bridge between the living and the dead where ghostly encounters may still prevail.

“Grandview Heights, one abandoned estate’s immortal name, stood isolated, teetering not far from the edge of a sheer drop cliff. Over years of neglect, it suffered dark ruin, dominating its interior. Silence, ever vigilant, has the ability to position itself deep within hollow rooms built of wood, brick, marble, and slate.”
