Book Blurb

Every time a shooting star is scheduled, Arthur, Carol and Tim choose a house with the best vantage point to haunt, carefully making sure its residents are not home.

But this time Arthur recognises the decor. The furnishings belong to his ex-boyfriend, Alexander, a man he never got over. And judging by the happy snaps in the photo frames, Alexander lives with a new lover.


Just as the ghosts settle in to watch the celestial event, the occupants return home early.

Book Review

A very different sort of ghostly story, this one starts off light and gets into outright terror as a threesome of ghosts set out to celebrate a relaxing evening of stargazing and along the way one of them, Arthur, learns the truth about his death, and it wasn’t the peaceful scenario he’d assumed it to be.


The story has a bit of a campy feel at first but turns to mayhem when the gory truth of what happened years ago unfolds. The ghosts exact their own sort of justice on Arthur’s ex and his new lover when they learn the truth. With the assistance of the trio, primarily Arthur, a police detective gets to spend his evening digging up a garden to... well, you’ll have to read this to learn more.


Despite the gory details and the oddity of the situation, I very much enjoyed this unique story. Short, satisfying, and spooky. A great Halloween treat that comes with zero calories but a lot of satisfaction.
