Rocker Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre. For one thousand dollars, he buys a dead man’s suit which is said to be haunted. Judas quickly learns that, not only is the suit haunted, but the ghost is out for revenge as he blames Judas for his daughter’s suicide.
By now it’s known that Joe Hill is the son of Stephen King. I’ll admit that I am not a fan of horror but this book is very well written and seriously creeped me out. I had to put it down an hour before bed and read something else as I didn’t want this to be the last thing on my mind before going to sleep. Now that’s a successful horror story. I didn’t like the protagonist in the beginning, but he definitely redeemed himself. I think horror fans will be delighted by this book.
