Publisher's Summary

"Buy my stepfather's ghost, read the e-mail." So Jude did. He bought it, in the shape of the dead man's suit, delivered in a heart-shaped box, because he wanted it - because his fans ate up that kind of story. It was perfect for his collection: the genuine skulls and the bones, the real honest-to-God snuff movie, the occult books, and all the rest of the paraphernalia that goes along with his kind of hard/goth rock.But the rest of his collection doesn't make the house feel cold. The bones don't make the dogs bark; the movie doesn't make Jude feel as if he's being watched. And none of the artifacts bring a vengeful old ghost with black scribbles over his eyes out of the shadows to chase Jude out of his home, and make him run for his life....

Good story, but irritating production

I found the music intro and outros very annoying. The story itself was good and the narrator did a good job. But the stupid music was very distracting. Admittedly this was only for about 1 minute in total of the entire book, but it pissed me off anyway.

Masterful Narration

Compelling tale, a scare-fest with an emotional backbone. Beautifully read with distinct character voices. A perfect combination of the written and spoken word.
