It is a simple story centered around four young women and one of them named Billie suddenly develops the ability become aware either through sight or feel of a ghost. Usually, they are trying to contact her for some reason, which varies. Billie has a boyfriend who is a policeman and he believes that she receives such contact and tries to help her. Her three girlfriends believe her, but lack her psychic ability until finally one unintentionally receives a contact which is dangerous for her.
This book is so simple, that it is not as enjoyable as what one would consider a good ghost story, but it reads quickly and has some entertainment to it. The way the author concludes the story is most startling, and he says he is writing more books, and he has entitled this one Book 1.
It gets better, though. Much better, in fact. I found it to be quite original, actually.
In a group of friends, one of them can see ghosts. Her friends comprise of one who totally believes her and is very interested (perhaps too interested) in her abilities, one who absolutely does not believe, and one who is pretty uninterested in the whole thing.
The friends enter an abandoned house that is due to be demolished, wanting to get some photos for posterity before it's gone for good. The house has a reputation for being haunted though, so there is some debate about whether they should do it. They enter anyway, and make a gruesome discovery - and that's when the really weird supernatural stuff starts happening. Stuff involving demonic sacrifices, pentagrams, and devil worship.
Enter the cop, who's sceptical about all this, but not so much as to be a cliché. Through his scepticism, he manages to keep an open mind, and the story becomes very interesting indeed!
Spookshow is the first in a series (the second instalment being Welcome to the Spookshow), and I liked the way that the second book get foreshadowed at the end of the first. So much so, in fact, that I went and signed up for the author's newsletter, in order to secure my free copy.
Tim McGregor is no Stephen King, but it's a pretty decent story. If you ask me, this author's got promise as a horror writer.
