About the Author
Alex Alexander is an experienced physicist and engineer with an extensive international background. Having worked in numerous countries, his exposure to scientific and cultural diversity provides a rich source of insight for Ghost on the Lake, a supernatural thriller that deftly blends science, spirituality, passion and suspense.
Alex's professional and personal experiences came together in a highly unique fashion to fuel the writing of Ghost on the Lake. After graduating from college with a degree in Experimental Particle Physics, he began his global travels as he shuttled between various European countries. His professional and academic experience during this time included working in particle accelerator complex and earning his Ph.D.
In 2000, Alex was recruited by a leading global management consultancy where he spent more than four years excelling in a number of capacities that included consulting management positions. Since 2005, he has worked with an industrial company where he is able to utilize his broad range of experience within multiple Company divisions.
While vacationing one summer with his wife and children in Europe, Alex and his wife had a life-changing encounter with a "spirit presence" that occupied the home in which they were staying. This made an indelible impression on Alex.
These fascinating mystical experiences combined with Alex's extensive scientific background, provide a compelling juxtaposition that serves as the inspiration for his enthralling novel, Ghost on the Lake.

The story begins with what seems like a drowning death- or is it? It is told from the alternating points of view of Mike (the dead(?) guy) and his girlfriend (still alive and on earth). It is interesting to see the two points of view of some of the same events. It takes place across continents as Mike struggles to figure out where he is and if/how he can return to his girlfriend and family.
This story was unlike anything I've ever read: spirits, death, life, soul chasing tornadoes, Aztecs,and communication between all of the above. After reading, you may give a little more meaning to a noisy old creaky house...

Alexander takes you through the lives of Michael and Laura from alternative perspectives to provide a well-rounded story. The audience is perfect for young adult readers and up. I find it difficult to summarize the book without any spoilers. Trust me that you'll be captivated. I am looking forward to subsequent work by this author.

These are just some of the questions that will be raised throughout your reading of Ghost on the Lake. The auhtor, Alex Alexander has the background to make a case for the science behind his novel and the plot sure makes it seem feasible.
The book moved quickly and will grab the attention of any reader who enjoys the supernatural and tales of mystery that takes twists and turns on every page.
Michael ends up missing and his family and friends anxiously wait for news of where he is and what could have happened to him. His girlfriend, Laura does not want to give up the search even when others try and convince her that she should accept that he drown. With no body found and the chances low that it will be found, Laura hangs on to hope.
This book was action packed with white vortices, "black maws" learning from Ghosts, and world travel to France, Machu Picchu, and Chicago. Two other people disappeared on the same night as Michael, with none of their bodies found. Meanwhile, there has been a discussion about a big fin sighting. What exactly is going on in Calmlake?

Do not read this if you do not want to be slightly spoiled...
I knew that there was something going on with his friend Ronald. When Michael mentioned that Ronald is supposed to be meeting him at the barbecue, but never shows up. Later after Ron is asked to come over because Michael is missing, he never mentions that he was supposed to be there that night. That alerted me right away. Then he spends a lot of the story trying to convince Laura that he drowned and was washed away downstream. Although there is more to the story. It was interesting to see how it all tied together.
