More About the Author
He attended Gabriel DuVal Senior High School and wrote this for his Yearbook
Senior Goals: To become a professional writer or artist. During the high school and early college years, he played lead guitar for a rock band called "Contagious." They were catchy, but apparently not enough to get a record deal.
Having completed the rigorous Holmes English Literature Curriculum, he graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1991. In 1996, he received his first graduate degree in Counseling. He has continued his studies with 36 credit hours of graduate-level Reading courses.
Wayne Thomas Batson has spent the last fifteen years teaching Reading and English to middle schools students. He pioneered the active instruction of Strategic Reading in Anne Arundel County and has written Reading and English Curricula for Anne Arundel County, Carroll County, and Howard County Public Schools. Most recently, he helped develop the Challenge Reading Curriculum for advanced readers in Howard County, Maryland.
Wayne Thomas Batson lives in Eldersburg with his beautiful wife of eleven years and his four wonderful young children. Besides dividing his time between family, teaching, and writing, he likes to read, golf, play PS2, travel to the beach, play electric guitar, and create 3D artwork.
Wayne Thomas Batson is the Bestselling author of five adventure novels including the fantasy epic Door Within Trilogy and the pirate duo Isle of Swords and Isle of Fire. A middle school Reading and English teacher for 18 years, Batson loves to challenge--and be challenged by--his students. So, when he began writing stories to supplement the school district's curriculum, it was his students who taught their teacher a lesson. Batson's students were so taken by one of the stories that, over a thirteen year span, they pushed him to make it into a full-length novel. That story became The Door Within. Since then, Batson's students continue to be his frontline editors. Says Batson, "Two things you can count on from middle school students: Intelligence and Honesty. Kids are so much more perceptive than a lot of us 'Big Folk' give them credit for. And when something's not write in the story, they'll tell you about in very clear terms." Batson is teaming up with author and friend Christopher Hopper for a new book series, The Berinfell Prophecies. The first book, Curse of the Spider King, hit bookstores in October 2009. It promises to turn the traditional "portal fantasy" on its head, posing the question: What would happen if the fantasy came to us? Batson believes his books appeal to so many kids and adults because, at a deep level, we all long to do something that matters, and we all dream of another world.

Sadly, I'm still waiting...
Will I read the next Ghost book? Absolutely. Will I recommend this book to others? You bet. However, as solid as it was, I continually found it lacking in the slightest ways. I hope the next book solves that. ;)
On a very individual note, I was a bit put-off by Ghost's love of coffee only because I already associated Ghost with Patrick Bowers, so to me, it felt a bit "copy cattish." I'm sure a lot of authors have characters that love coffee, but it messed with me a bit :)
I really enjoyed the story, and I will get the next in the series as soon as it's available. I would highly recommend this Christian Thriller to anyone who appreciates an intriguing story with twists and turns and a fulfilling conclusion!
At times the violence was overwhelming, and as with all supernatural thrillers for me, there were lots of unanswered questions about the interaction of spiritual and physical worlds. What does it mean for an angel to be killed? I still don't know.
If, like me, you don't care for supernatural thrillers, you might try this one and find that you like it for the same reason I did: John Spector is a great character. If you do like supernatural thrillers, I'll bet you will like this one, too.
At first I thought I had started reading the middle of a series as John Spector the Ghost of the title seems to have just completed a case and is moving on to the next one. In fact I think this is the first book and I hope there is more. As the story develops you find out more about Ghost and his missions until near the end all is revealed.
Although dealing with distressing subjects, kidnapping and serial murders and violent at times it is a well-structured story that slowly builds and follows clues as in a fairly conventional detective novel but although looking for the murderer and wanting to bring him to justice Ghost's justice is not the same as the FBI agent he forges a working relationship with.
I thought this very original and want to read more particularly to find out about Ghost's past, if indeed there is one.
It is super awesome and super thrilling, so take the plunge and delve into Ghost; you won't regret the ride!

Gave up on it as it changed in the third act to a strong pro-life message over all else. The character depth disappeared as the motivations were all tied to that one issue. Read morePublished 4 months ago by William Clemo
Felt like a good detective paranormal story was lost in the political chaos surrounding abortion. Characters were interesting but politics strangled enjoyment.
Some call him 'Ghost', a few call him 'Horseman', he is on assignment in Florida to find a serial killer. He carries a silver case with fantastic tools but no cell phone. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Jan
Interesting read, but it did get very religious, very quickly, something I did not like. Angel vs. demons, God is on your side. Kind of icky, but good story otherwise.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
