Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bill and Rebecca Moore are an ordinary middle-aged couple raising two children in suburban Connecticut when an unsuccessful attempt on Rebecca's life by a mysterious stranger leaves her with a nasty case of post-traumatic stress. To help her recover, Bill suggests a move to L.A., where they buy and renovate an old house in a posh neighborhood. It seems, however, that the house hosts a particularly persistent ghost named Ronny, an ex-actor who apparently has emerged from the small private cemetery adjacent to the backyard. When both children disappear from the house with no sign of forced entry, LAPD gumshoe Ed Van Allen suspects the Moores of murder, although Rebecca gamely tries to convince him the ghost did it. Turning the implausible into the possible as the case unfolds, Hynd lets the evidence build to a genuinely terrifying climax that features earthbound criminals as well as a not-so-subtle example of divine retribution. The author rarely diverts from the conventions of formula, but his slow unveiling of supernatural events and of the emotional lives of his characters is so believable and authentically rendered that the story line ensnares readers nonetheless. This is yet another adroitly crafted thriller from Hynd, who in recent books has managed a crossover from political thrillers (Flowers from Berlin) to horror (A Room for the Dead) with style and aplomb.

This book made my spine tingle. This was so real, I was afraid to turn the page when Rebecca opened the door to the turret room. Being a huge fan of suspense, this one is the topper. The scariest part - could this really happen??

This is an atmospheric and sweetly scary tale, the type one thinks about more and more after finishing. I loved GHOSTS by Noel Hynd. This one is almost as good, which means very good indeed!

I adored this book, especially Billy Carlton, the silent movie actor turned ghostly babysitter. The terror is there. The sense that every sound you hear might just have a supernatural basis is there. The bet thing of all, though, is the real sense of a spirit who although adrift from the moorings of his physical identity remembers and cares and tears through the veil between life and death to see that right prevails!

I read this book and one of Hynd's other books and was pleased with both books. It can be difficult to find a good ghost story that can give you a chill without gore that is prevalant in so many of the seriel killer type books now--and the same for movies that are in theaters. If you like movies like the Sixth Sense, Ghost Story, and The Others....and desire to read a good ghost story this is a good start. I have not been disappointed and plan to buy one-two of his other books I have not read. I would have given this book 4.5 stars if possible.

Noel Hynd turns up the fright level to full throttle in this novel. It is written so well it is like you can touch, taste, and smell the surroundings in the book. This is a quick read and recommended for anyone who wants to be transported out of reality and plopped directly into the world of a classic ghost thriller.

Like Ghosts, this starts out okay, has some nice little chilling moments that'll have you wondering what-was-that-noise? in the middle of the night. But aslo like Ghosts, the ending is not very good. I think Hynd suffers from a problem that plagues a lot of writers: they don't know how to end their stories. BUT, I reapeat BUT, if you go into this as a mixture of fantasy and horror, it actually works on some level. It's has a fun pulse to it. No, it's not really horror, but i don't think it's all that bad either. My recomendation would be to read Ghosts first, it's much better and scarier. Then read this in the way you'd watch a comedy after watching a horror movie, a way to settle down.

I loved this book. It was even better than I thought it would be. I kept turning the pages, so eager to find out what happened next.It captured and caught my full attention. I wish a few more things had been explained though.

Like who killed Billy and why?

And how could Billy come back for good in his physical body{at least I assume thats what he did , judging from the very end}, when he had been dead for over 60 years?

Those 2 parts still have me wondering , because they were never explained at all.

The book was suspensful and gripping and had my heart pounding from the middle of the book on. Its one of the best fictional ghost stories I have ever read.

I stopped reading these types of books years ago. However, upon recommendation I found myself buying Cemetary. WOW! In one weekend I managed to read more than half. This is well written, with great descriptions, dialogue and thought within. I was hooked right from the start when Rebecca was nearly killed. I am now at the part where he is returning to finish the job. I can't wait to get home and finish
