After two years away from his home of Memphis, TN; wealthy book publisher, Marcus Bishop, arrives to find his beloved city a disaster. The economy is sagging, commerce failing, and buildings are being boarded up at an alarming rate.
One place in particular catches Marcus's eye: An old castle-like structure situated in the Garden District. Once a resplendent mansion, Ashlar Hall now sits empty and destitute. Money and love alone can't bring this building back from the brink; it will take Marcus's soul to free the building from the ravages of time and the spirits that haunt it.
A philanthropist and lover of unique architecture, Marcus decides to buy the Ashlar Hall and return it to its former glory. What he doesn't realize is that included in the business transaction is a love-struck, jealous ghost who will stop at nothing to get Marcus into the afterlife.

This book started off a little slow but then picked up fast. I could not put it down. It was very scary and could not wait to find out what happened at the end.
This might have been the worst book I have ever read. While reading it I thought to myself, "Who talks like this?" because the dialogue was that bad. I hated the story. I hated the characters. I wanted to give it a chance so I read the entire thing. It didn't get any better.
I am not usually a reader of the horror/supernatural genre, so I was skeptical about THE HALL. Just to be upfront, I read the book in draft stage, being the copy editor...and was more familiar with K. Rowe's military fiction which I truly enjoyed... so I went at this with an open mind. I grew to love the characters, and the cool thing is that this is fiction based on some facts...and real people and places...but then I guess great fiction often is that way. Do I believe in ghosts after reading this book? Don't want to!! Is this a happily ever after? No...scary things happen in this book...it isn't for the weak of heart...read at the risk of having shivers and goose bumps...warning...
