Book Description:

For some, ghosts are no more than the wounds loved ones leave in their wake, haunting the living only with their absence. Others take a more literal view…

Kate Bennett, presenter of paranormal investigation cable TV show, Where the Dead Walk, isn’t sure what she believes, other than she seems cursed to lose all those closest to her.

After investigating a neglected cliff-top house, empty for a decade because its “haunted”, Kate is left convinced a spirit within holds the answers to a childhood she can’t remember and an unimaginable crime.

What she can’t know is that the house’s owner, Sebastian Dahl, is searching for something too, and he intends to get it, whatever the cost.

My Thoughts:

Where The Dead Walk is a dark, tense and steady read that is perfect for fans of the paranormal.

I really enjoyed the whole storyline in this novel. The fact that the main characters, Kate and Henry, both work together on a paranormal TV show is just class. Most of us will have watched similar shows on TV and wondered if there is any truth in the stories or if it is all staged, I do think the author is quite realistic with the audiences expectations and keeps it very real.

Surprisingly Kate is quite sceptical about the whole thing herself. She has had many losses in her life and I would have thought she would have got into that line of work in the hope of getting some answers and finding a way to make contact with her loved ones. If anything though, her personal loss has made her stronger and independent and she certainly seems to have built a wall around her to stop herself from getting hurt again.

I really liked Henry’s character throughout the story. He obviously has feelings for Kate and cares for her a great deal. They definitely make a great team.

The story certainly gets a whole lot darker when Sebastian comes into it. It is quite apparent to the reader that there is more to this person than he is letting on. From this point on I was on tender hooks for Kate as I just knew that the house and Sebastian were not going to be a good omen.

Where The Dead Walk is a very well written novel that grabs you from the start. The author teases us as to what is really is going on with Sebastian and it certainly makes for a gripping read that is full of mystery and suspense.

Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.

Where The Dead Walk is available to purchase from Amazon.
