A ghost with a story to tell and searching for the right person to share it with…

The Night Is WatchingThe Night Is Watching by Heather Graham
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A combination of a good old murder mystery with a hint of western and some ghost channeling detectives to boot.
It was what I would call a good wholesome read.
Nothing overly complex and written with enough twists and turns to keep the reader interested.
It might not have a lot of bite or any violent scenes, but it didn’t need any of those things. Some readers just want a pleasant and entertaining read without having to strain the brainbox, query quantum physics or historical facts. Sometimes it’s nice when the most complicated thing about a book is the hot cocoa you make to drink whilst reading it.
One thing though, what was the point of the whole tongue sub-plot? Surely dead is dead and ergo not capable of conversations. Should have chopped off some fingers instead because they sure didn’t have any problem writing messages.
I would have liked to have seen more evidence of the fact that there is a Krewe of Hunters or indeed was in this book.
Two people do not a Krewe make.
Overall it was pleasant read that sails somewhere in the mid-genre field of mystery with a pinch of paranormal.
I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley.
