Ghosts of Rosewood Asylum by Stephen Prosapio

Zach has a special power that allows him to communicate with spirits.  It takes its toll on him, but it has helped his TV show advance in ratings.

Otherworld Publications sent me a copy of the ebook for review (thank you).  It is available for sale as a hardcover, paperback and ebook now.

Spoiler alert:  Some important parts of the story line are disclosed below.

This is the story of Zach and his team of ghost hunters.  His next assignment is to go the most famous ghost facility ever that has been closed to the public for years.  He's really excited about this, but loses a bit of that enthusiasm when he finds out he has to share the show and investigation with his competitor in the ghost hunter field.  He has suspicions that they "salt" their sites with evidence to substantiate their findings, and he doesn't want that to happen on his show.

This is a fast flowing, well paced story that keeps your interest by throwing in a lot of history about the building and the people that lived there.  Residents are reticent about speaking to investigators.  Odd events happen onsite.  And Zach keeps having coffee with a ghost no one else can see.  There's a religious connection here, too, which seemed a bit weird, but fits well as a vehicle for Zach's power.

If you like paranormal stories, this one is well worth reading.  I'm not big on ghost stories, but this one appealed to me.  It has plenty of action, an old murder mystery, there's conflict on all sides in the past and in the present, and it comes down to a fight between good and evil.  You won't be bored.

Happy reading.
