The Cure by Athol Dickson

Nightmare by Robin Parrish

Okay, I’m afraid of ghosts. And I have to tell you, after reading this story, I am still afraid of them. In fact, I might believe in their existence more than I did before I began the book. I must say, my thought so many times as I read the book was, “why would anyone want to spend the night in a building known to be ‘haunted’?” That said, I thoroughly enjoyed the story line. And I love the last line of the book… “it isn’t what happens when you die, it’s what happens when you live.” When you read the book, you’ll understand that line perfectly.

If you enjoy stories about the afterlife, you will truly enjoy reading this book. Mr. Parrish has done a wonderful job with the subject.
