Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The spirits who reside in the Destiny Village cemetery have been unleashed on the local community by Morton Wordsworth, and the story relates the exploits of ghost hunter Robin Hayle and his friend, police Detective Dennis Grounds, as they attempt to stop the ensuing chaos.
For me to appreciate a fictional ghost story, allowing for a willing suspension of disbelief, there has to be an element of plausibility. Although the tale begins reasonably well, I found the physical violence used by the ghosts towards the living, and many of the methods Hayle uses to combat it, to be unbelievable to the point of ridiculous. There are no explanations given as to why Wordsworth has unleashed the ghosts, and the novel ends on a cliff-hanger.
The author uses some odd phrasing in his writing – ‘the detective’s head knocking off the ceiling.’ – which makes it read as though English may not be his first language. There are also a number of blatant errors which suggest a lack of proof reading or editing – ‘The cop laughed as he pounded the detective with a hard fish (fist?)…’ There are also some formatting issues, such as: a blank line after every paragraph; indents at the beginning of each chapter; and chapter fifteen being duplicated as chapter sixteen.
This novel is the first book in a series of three, but I will not be reading any further.
