"Most of the stories display the unself-conscious dash that made Hill's novel an intelligent pleasure....Not just for ghost addicts." ( Kirkus Reviews)

An Eyebrow raising story with great narration!

Not your everyday ghost story that brings something very different to the table. Loved the narration and weird turns this story took.
