Short Story: 17pgs

When Robert Caldwell inherits a haunted house, he calls on ghost-hunter Simon Feximal to rid him of the supernatural menace. But the ghost is stronger than either man realizes -- strong, angry, and desperate for release. Trapped in a haunted house with a dangerously attractive ghost-hunter and a sexually frustrated spirit, can Robert survive the night intact...and will he want to?

Short Review
What a fun story for Halloween! The story is about a ghost haunting an old mansion for centuries. A practical, nonbeliever in the supernatural man moves into the haunted house he survives the screams and moans at night but finally caves in and calls a ghost hunter when the walls start to bleed.

I like both characters through the short glimpse I got from the short page length. The plot is simple but perfect for this story. Some secrets of the ghost-hunter trade are unique ideas that add to this novella’s charm and make some writing references. Robert is a journalist and Simon, the ghost-hunter uses his skin as a writing pad for the ghosts to vent and that is the way for him to exorcise the ghost.

A comical ending completes this grand (though not very scary) tale of a haunted house. This is a short, fun read that's perfect for the Halloween season and as a stress reliever after a long day.
