This was an excellent and original book. Not what you expected!

I got a hold of this book accidentally when looking for Kelley Armstrong's book by the same name. It lay on my desk for several weeks until I picked it up when looking for a stand alone short read when going to Raleigh to move my daughter back to college. It turned a 3 hour ride into a delight as I delved into this great mystery. I've got to admit that I thought I had it figured out several times but the author deftly ran circles around me. I can say little that doesn't spoil the book but you will not be disappointed at all upon reading this short though amazingly complex story.

For a 200 page book, it took an unbelievably long time to get to the freaking point. A good 100 pages until it finally got mildly interesting and less confusing! It was absolutely impossible to tell which group of people (Paul, Penny and Elsie) or (Mary, Jeff and Sarah) were the main characters and who were the ghosts. Incredibly confusing, disturbing and all together boring.
