You can’t kill something that’s already dead. Unless of course you’re George.
There are ghosts and demons that wander among the living; they do not haunt in the traditional sense. Instead, they plague the living with diseases and physical deformities, and once a ghost finds its victim it will haunt them for a lifetime.
A mild illness brings on the dreams, which trigger the suppressed memories, which in turn allows George to see ghosts. Along with this new sight into a realm unknown to most, George instinctually knows that he must kill the ghosts. Of course none of this makes sense, but he cannot control the urge to kill when he encounters them, because deep inside, he knows this is what he must do. Another thing he knows; if he kills a ghost, a person nearby is suddenly healed.
His acceptance of this newfound ability to see and kill ghosts becomes his obsession, but it is also destroying his life and threatening his sanity. George seeks the help of Phil, a known paranormal expert, who briefly explains his new ability, but also warns him about a dangerous man who is looking for a powerful ghost killer, and insinuates that George is that powerful ghost killer. Soon after, George meets Billy, a young woman with a brazen and unlikable personality. However, she is another ghost killer, and that makes her someone he needs to know. With the help of Billy and Phil, George looks for answers as to how and why he’s become what he is and who and what the dangerous man wants. His quest for knowledge leads him to new friends and allies, but also to enemies he could never have imagined, enemies that killed his mother and grandparents and now want him.
4★s “What Haunts Me “I’d strongly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys the dark of paranormal fiction.”
5 stars imaginative ghost story !!!
Amazon.com review March 2, 2015
By Mona P.
Fantastic story with lots of imagination. Every now and then you come across a book that portrays a common subject, but finds a new interesting way to spin it all. Those are the books I love to discover and this is one of them. The plot is fun and moves along at a great pace keeping you at the edge of your seat. This was one of those that was difficult to put down, and one I started it took me no time at all to finish it.
The characters are a great mix of personalities and work well together. You can't help but fall in love with George and Billy. They seem "real", which makes this book such a gem. They have their struggles but you busy know if in trouble they wouldn't hesitate to help. Great heroes for this book.
This is a complete story but I could very really see this developing into a series, that I would most definitely read.
5 stars An richly imagined world of ghosts and ghost killers
Amazon.com review February 22, 2015
What Haunts Me is a very well-written ghost story that brought to mind one of Charles Dickens’ worlds, even though it's contemporary. There’s something formal, classic, and almost nostalgic feeling about the story. It's unusually “clean”, or maybe just compared to everything I've read recently, as in no swearing or sex, which might really appeal to certain readers. I’m always on the lookout for errors, since I get a lot of my books from promotional sites, and this story has none...flawless!
The main character, George, a successful single businessman, begins to see ghosts hovering around ailing or addicted people. He discovers he possesses the power to make the ghosts disappear and heal the individuals they haunted, and that he hails from a powerful line of ghost killers. At first I believed the author was giving the entire premise away in the first chapter, but there's much more. Ms. Millmore has created an entire world where ghosts and ghost killers of different powers levels coexist. All of it is completely explained and completely believable. Just the right sequence of events between a ghost, a special and powerful ghost killer, and a human can enable the human to live with special powers and without aging for longer than a normal lifespan. As you can imagine, that has it’s appeal and there’s a villain who will stop at nothing to make it happen. What Haunts Me nicely sets up what I’m sure will be an interesting partnership of George and Billy, a female ghost hunter, in future ghost hunting novels. About half way through, George explains with impatience, “Of course I know what a xxxx is, Billy!” I’m not giving away the word, but his comment stuck me as funny because I didn’t know what the word meant. Luckily it was explained as it’s an important concept in the book. See if you know...
