'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
"Hill's book is satisfyingly creepy and bleak, ideal for those who relish a good scare." * WATERSONES' BOOKS QUARTERLY *
"A supernatural thriller which is well written, superbly paced, convincingly plotted and populated with intriguing characters, a story that will grip you from first word to last, the embodiment of the phrase page turner, and for a first novel that's damned good going." * BLACK STATIC *

“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
