Format: Mass Market Paperback
The book has a simple-minded concept of ghosts/spirits. I could go along with that but the writing varies from good to awful.
Consider: One of the rounds smashed into Scott's thigh. "Damn!" he exclaimed before firing back. If the bullet smashed into his thigh, Scott should've fallen down screaming. Same page: She threw the queen of all tantrums. Editing and a bit character depth could've made this a good book. Only read it to find the funny lines. Otherwise skim it to find out what happens.

Solid, possession-ghost-ish story. Really enjoyed reading this. Some corny, out of place dialogue, but worth a read. Had a strong story line, likable characters and a good ole evil bastard. Felt the end was a bit rushed.

Ghost Monster is a story about the spirit of a madman and his mad men. Justice Murrain was a certifiable psychopath who used lunatics for his own personal army and tormented an entire town. His son trapped his soul under a mosaic in the local mausoleum and that was the end for Justice Murrain. At least, until coastal erosion and a decades-long vendetta cause the mosaic to be broken.

Murrain's Battle Men, as his army is known, return to possess members of the town and wreak havoc in attempt to possess Murrain's descendant and destroy the mosaic that imprisoned them for several hundred years.

Really it was a pretty good read.

Save yourself the time and frustration and skip this one. Though I have been a Simon Clark fan in the past, this one is just terrible. There is no character development, a weak plot, and is altogether completely pointless. I ended up skipping through parts (something I rarely do) just to finish it. The only frightening thing occurring in this book is the length. It seemed like Clark started with a good premise and then had no idea where to go with it.
