'Buy my stepfather's ghost' read the e-mail.

So Jude did.

He bought it, in the shape of the dead man's suit, delivered in a heart-shaped box, because he wanted it: because his fans ate up that kind of story. It was perfect for his collection: the genuine skulls and the bones, the real honest-to-God snuff movie, the occult books and all the rest of the paraphanalia that goes along with his kind of hard/goth rock.

But the rest of his collection doesn't make the house feel cold. The bones don't make the dogs bark; the movie doesn't make Jude feel as if he's being watched. And none of the artefacts bring a vengeful old ghost with black scribbles over his eyes out of the shadows to chase Jude out of his home, and make him run for his life ...

MEDIA REVIEWS
HEART-SHAPED BOX is a true spine-tingler ... right away there was a subtle line that made the hairs on the back of my neck go up in a way I haven't experienced since I first discovered great horror as a teenager ... it will haunt you and startle you and stay with you and yes, visit you in your dreams - Harlan Coben, No. 1 bestselling author of TELL NO ONE, on Amazon.com

Hill's prose is lean and precise, and he renders Jude's world with impressive confidence . . . not only well-written and terrifying, but also surprisingly moving - Scott Smith, bestselling author of THE RUINS and A SIMPLE PLAN, on Amazon.com

Subtle and skilful . . . a truly memorable debut - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)

“Gripping Read.”

I’ve said this before when reviewing a book by Joe Hill, but it is really disappointing to see people displeased with his work simply because it is not the same as his father’s work. His work should be compared to the... More

“Great idea for a story, just not always flowing”

I really liked the synopsis and thought it sounded like the book would have all the elements of a good ghost story. It did. The ideas were great. It was a very American style and there were a few gaps in the story... More
