Knowing that Stephen Kings son wrote this made me feel a bit wary. I wasn't quite sure what to expect to be honest. All I can say is that you can tell this guy is as talented as the rest of his family.

This was a good old fashioned ghost story and it was very very good. It kept the pages turning very quickly after I got through the first couple of chapters. To begin with and throughout a couple of times, it seemed the writing was quite amateurish at times, at first it put me off but then I managed to see past it.

I loved it and will definitely be reading Joe Hills other books!
