The latest Braxton Campus Mystery Haunted House Ghost by James J. Cudney IV—Jay—is the best yet. Okay, I’m [particularly] partial to haunted houses—not those with grotesque demons or hideous monsters, but ones with ghosts (real or otherwise). It’s fun to follow a detective, professional or non, as he or she solves mysterious ghastly goings-on. And all the better if a creepy cemetery, bumps [or howls] in the night, and a skeleton or two enter the picture, uh, plot.
Jay has always proven to be a solid writer with interesting tales to tell. There’s also a definite evolution in talent/skill. Intense depth and details twine through Haunted House Ghost, painting superbly vivid pictures and characters. You see and experience all that Kellan, the protagonist, does: shivers upon sensing “something” in an old house, pride and protectiveness as only a father can possess, and frustration that uncooperative (if not downright loopy) people may encourage.
What a great time to release the book—a few weeks from Hallowe’en. If this book doesn’t get you into the mood for ghouls and goblins, pumpkin pie and candy corn, nothing will.
This isn’t an official review, but two thumb’s up to Jay—he’s penned a tight, fun, and entertaining mystery. If you relish stories featuring amateur sleuths, Haunted House Ghost is a must for you.
Have a spookingly enjoyable read!
