I first read "Shades of Gray" when it first came out in paperback in the late '80s - and read it and re-read it many times. One of the few ghost stories I've ever really liked, and I always thought it a shame that it went out of print. I found out in June that it was returning as an ebook, and have been eagerly looking forward to downloading it on my Kindle.

"Shades of Gray" is a tightly plotted, character-driven story with memorable characters like Sam and Maggie, Liam and Track. It's thoughtful

Best ghost story I have read. Something is haunting West Point. It's up to three officer instructors from B.S.&L. (Behavioral sciences & Leadership -- AKA Bull Sh__& Lies) divsion to explore the problem and solve it. People shooting at them they're used to but this --!

My opinion: Probably one of the most unusual ghost stories I have ever read. I must admit that it did take me a bit of time to get into it due to the constant military reference, as I mostly read the typical haunted house, particulary from the English moor ghost stories.

Once I got into the flow of this book, I whipped through it because it was so engrossing.

My brother graduated from West Point in 1990 and told me about this book. The author was an instructor of his. Very credible scary account of hauntings on this historic campus.

I enjoyed the story, but all the psycho babble got in the way and made it quite a hard read!
