About the Author

WAYNE THOMAS BATSON is the Bestselling author of ten adventure novels including the fan favorite DOOR WITHIN TRILOGY, the pirate duo ISLE OF SWORDS and ISLE OF FIRE, and the new 7-book fantasy epic DARK SEA ANNALS. A middle school Reading and English teacher for 23 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: Intelli-gence and Honesty. Kids are so much more perceptive than a lot of us ‘Big Folk’ give them credit for. And when something’s not right in the story, they’ll tell you about in very clear terms.” Batson lives in Maryland with his wonderful wife of twenty years and four incredible teenage children. "God has blessed me with a remarkable family," Batson says. "Not perfect. But intelligent, fun, faithful, loyal, and entertaining." With over half a million books in print, 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.

This is an absolutely amazing book that is both humorous and thought-provoking. The way Batson wrote this book with its serious themes and creative plot twists, while at the same time adding in humor and fantastic suspense, blew me away. If you're searching for a book that deals with the seriousness (and sometimes horribleness) of this world but also with hope, mercy, and good-versus-evil, look no further! Batson created a book that not only keeps you on the edge of your seat with suspense and mystery, but one that also is very thought-provoking, and definitely worthwhile.

I generally don't care for supernatural thrillers, but for some reason the story caught my interest and kept it to the end. John Spector was someone I wanted to spend time with.
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.

Truthfully, my title to this review says a lot! That's the first thing I thought when I started reading "Ghost." It has the spiritual warfare flavor of Peretti's "This Present Darkness" combined with the serial killer intrigue of James' "Bower Files Series." I truly enjoyed the presentation of the story and the way it unfolded. There were definitely places that I figuratively scratched my head and sputtered "huh?" but it didn't take long for the "huh?" to turn into an "ahh... I get it."

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!

I really enjoyed this book and the audiobook just made it that much more enjoyable.

The narrator was perfect for this book!

The chemistry between John Spectre, aka Ghost aka Horseman, and FBI Special Agent Reznazi,aka Rez, was fantastic.

When a pro-choice serial killer known as Smiling Jack reappears after a four year hiatus, Ghost and Rez team up to track the killer down before he kills again. Rez's goal is to stop these killings and bring the killer to justice. Ghost, on the other hand, is seeking a more permanent and lethal end to the killer.

At first the FBI refuses to reopen the Smiling Jack case believing it to be a hoax. However, when a body turns up in Florida this time they can no longer deny that Smiling Jack is real, and they must take the case seriously if they are to catch the killer. Rez is pulled from the investigation that she started on her own time, and Ghost is threatened with federal jail time unless he backs off the case and lets the FBI handle things from here on out.

None of this stops Ghost and Rez from doing whatever they have to do to catch the killer. There are some supernatural events that slow Ghost down and make his life more difficult, but in the end Ghost overcomes all obstacles.

Brandon McKernan does a wonderful job as narrator. Only one time did I hear him mispronounce a word that I thought was a rather common word. His timing and pacing were very nearly perfect for this story. I never had a problem keeping up with who was doing the talking in any conversation. I think that I have found a new narrator to love.

As a big Wayne Thomas Batson fan, I was looking forward to this book with a massive amount of anticipation. As a matter of fact, this book was the main reason I bought a Kindle in the first place and it was the first book I bought and read on my new Kindle. And while it was a solid read, I just kept found myself, page after page, wanting a bit more... I kept yearning for the next level of "oomph" of which I know the author is capable. The next surprising revelation of Ghost's world and the next jaw-dropping insight into his character.

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. ;)

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. His detective work is familiar to Phillip Marlowe, Sam Spade, Inspector Linley, and Kinsey Milhone, as well as the FBI and local law enforcement. But he is dramatically different from all of them. Just ask FBI Special Agent Deanna Rezvani, some crooks, and a whole lot of supernatural bad guys. See the publisher's summary for more hints. No spoilers here. I was fortunate to get this one super cheap courtesy of Book Gorilla, but it is worth real money. Excellent imagery and characterization make this a fine urban fantasy with a twist.
Brandon gives a remarkable performance with just the right touch.
Hope that there are more John Spector books coming soon!
