What is the first thing you would think if you saw a ghost? Most people would probably worry about their sanity. I would. George Appelt Jr. inserts that realism into his novel set in central Pennsylvani. When Will Shepherd moves into a new house to please his wife as they relocate for his new job, strange things start to happen. While Will tries to hold down his demanding job, his personal life becomes increasingly complex and uncomfortable. Will knows his problems are related to the house.
This book took twists and turns that constantly surprised me and kept me reading late into the night. Of course, by then I was afraid to turn off the lights. Even the final twist surprised me, but it also made sense. Appelt mixes in enough history and interesting secondary characters to add suspense. His engaging characters had me fearing for their lives with each uptick in suspense.
If you're a fan of the horror genre or suspense novels, you'll love this.
