Quite a novel, Hard to put down once you start it.
Well written with great depth.
Reveals some of the dangers of even innocently opening the door to the occult and hope for those who done so and who are trying to help those stuck in it's clutches.

Unexplained voices. Desperate apparitions. A dangerous coven of witches. Welcome toThe Other Side.

Joshua Lazarus and his wife, Maggie, are reeling from the overnight success of his new television show, starring Joshua as a medium--passing messages to the audience from their dearly departed. It's all a sham, of course--but when strange voices begin to haunt him without relief, and ghosts seemingly cry out to him for help, he realizes he's involved with forces he never believed existed. As Joshua and Maggie try to make sense of the visitations, a closer, more visible force is preparing to attack.

Between the killer who hunts Joshua and the pervasive occult presence in Raven, Massachusetts, no one close to him is safe. On the brink of being consumed alive, Maggie and Joshua must fight for their lives--and their souls.

The storyline was pretty eerie, and the characters felt "real". I'm not sure I liked the author's writing style (just a personal thing), but the descriptions were clear and made sure all questions were eventually answered. A creepy book with a good plot, how can you go wrong?
