A group of children report seeing a ghost and a local councillor gets worried.

A slight story that didn't read as though it had been fully developed and was very slow paced (as if the author had to reach a target number of pages). Some of the actions of the adults were totally unbelievable - even for a children's story. The dialogue and characters are not very good.

My real rating for this book was 2.5.

I got this book for christmas, and I started reading it but gave up. This morning, I read it again, and finished it in a hour and a half. Its not very long, but good if you like mysteries. Overall, I would give it 3 stars.
