My review of What Haunts Me by Margaret Millmore.
This first of a series, paranormal thriller introduces us to a world where ghosts haunt the living by plaguing them and a breed of people, known as ghost killers, have the special ability to see and kill such ghosts.
George Sinclair is an average man with a job and a mortgage, but after a bout of flu he starts seeing ghosts and discovers he can banish them. George takes a tour of the supernatural to find out more about ghosts and his ability and soon learns he’s not alone but he is unique in the strength of his abilities.
I really enjoyed this ghost story, which grounded the supernatural in the everyday as it introduced us to George, Justine, Billy and a host of characters that made this an engaging read for me.
The thriller comes to a climax as our protagonists face the evil Dr Vokkel, who is responsible for a host of dark deeds over the years affecting both George and Billys family history. I liked this aspect of the thriller too as the background story of the characters added another edge and grounded the paranormal element further.
This type of paranormal/horror read is something I look for frequently but don’t often find, it’s scary and stretches your imagination without drastically changing the world as we know it. I look forward to the next one.
