What Haunts Me - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat; Think With Your Taste Buds; A Book and A Dish
“I noticed a woman of about thirty standing just off the sidewalk on the grass. Her appearance was right out of the 1940's; her dress hung below her knees with padded shoulders and semi-tailored waste line, Mary Jane shoes, hair neatly done up in side rolls. Yet, it wasn't the vintage apparel that stood out so much; it was that she was untouched by the light rain that was coating everything and everyone around her. Of course, it was also the Harry Potter glasses that she wore, and the fact that she seemed to be intently focused on John.
For no other reason but instinct, I raised the umbrella and gently jabbed it at her as we walked past. A look of horror filled her face, and then she swirled away into a grey mist, just like the ghost, or whatever he was, had done when I was a kid at Bobby's house. Now that I remembered it all, it occurred to me that John didn't have a lisp...anymore.”
George is a normal young man in his 30's. His mother had died when he was young, he was raised by his father, went to school, ended up becoming very successful in the real estate field and even bought himself a nice home on the top floor of a building that housed only one other person who was an elderly lady named Justine Wilkinson.
After getting over a bout of the flu George found his life changing before his eyes. He was seeing 'ghosts' that were haunting people and making them ill. He also discovered that he could poke them with a pencil and they would, for the lack of a better word 'die.' Then came the memories of his childhood. Apparently he was able to do this as a child but for some reason didn't remember it until now. These memories and the events now taking place in his life are wreaking havoc on his life and he doesn't know how to make it stop.
George is a GK or ghost killer. They come in all power stages and ranks with him being one of the best. But he ends up with a mission that has to be handled before the bad ghosts take over. This book is the perfect beginning for a TV series. If you like the Walking Dead you'll really love What Haunts Me. I'd love to see this picked up by a producer, yes it's that good.
