Overview

Nantucket Island is a peaceful place to vacation in the summer...for those who are unaware of its tragic past. Each June, parishioners gather in the comfort of Reverend Osaro's church to listen as locals relate their first-hand experiences with spirits in town.

Detective Tim Brooks, forced to question his belief in the supernatural, takes on the most vile of ghosts imaginable to save the entire island from its wrath. Bodies pile up as he races to figure out who this spirit is and why it is so malevolent. Who will fall victim next? An innocent vacationer? The starlet, Annette? The unorthodox minister? Or perhaps Tim himself?

An elderly woman's turning table holds the key to discovering Nantucket's bloody past, and perhaps putting an end to the senseless murders on the island. Tim finds help in some unlikely places, but will it be enough?

In a powerful departure from his usual fare--international espionage--Hynd brings his highly respected talents to the realm of supernatural horror. For Academy Award-winning actress Annette Carlson, peaceful Nantucket Island is the perfect refuge. For ghost hunter George Osaro, it is about to become a place of unholy terror.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A veteran New Hampshire state cop must confront a grisly murder spree that bears all the marks of a serial killer he helped send to the electric chair. (Jan.)
Library Journal
A malevolent spirit is haunting the Nantucket house of actress Annette Carlson. It has killed at least three people with sickening viciousness. It now insinuates itself inside the head of policeman Timothy Brooks, a skeptical investigator forced against his will to recognize the existence of the occult. Brooks must lay this spirit to rest before it tires of toying with him and Annette and kills them both. With this novel, espionage writer Hynd makes his debut in the realm of the supernatural. A ghost novel needs to convince unbelieving readers against their will and scare the liver out of them, and Ghosts does this in spades. The atmosphere builds steadily, moving from reality to an utterly convincing realm of the supernatural. Public libraries need to buy this.-- Marylaine Block, St. Ambrose Univ. Lib., Davenport, Ia.
