Are you a fan of the Twilight Zone? Do you like suspense thriller novels? Then you Martins Ghostwill love Martin’s Ghost by William Mellen.

Martin. Age 39, married, no kids. He’s a professional who works hard and worries harder. Recently, life has taken a terrifying and surreal twist. It’s as though someone has imposed an incomprehensible dimension onto the routine of everyday life. It comes in the form of a malignant spirit that haunts him from photos of his younger days and reflections of the looking glass. It’s the jack-in-the-box from hell, a horrifying specter; and Martin is about to find out its purpose.

Martin’s Ghost may feature a menacing phantom, but don’t be fooled. It’s not a horror story, and it’s not a tale of ghosts. That’s all too easy. It’s a psychological thriller to bend your mind and twist your nerves. And, it’s a story about life. Martin’s ghost may be closer than you think. The mind-bending conclusion will give the story, and maybe you, a whole new point of view.

Martin’s Ghost is a thought proving, fast paced novella where Martin is overworked and stresses too much. It makes you realize that if you don’t live your life outside of work then you are missing out, and will later regret it. There is so much more to life then work.

I loved Martin. He reminded me of so many people, he was so real. He thought he was going crazy because he was seeing a ghost. But when he told his wife, she just thought he was overworked. I think there is a little of Martin is every one. I enjoyed how he reacted to seeing a ghost, it added excitement to the story.

I really enjoyed this book. I thought it had a great message, with a wonderful thrilling story behind it. Martin’s Ghost is a quick read, that you won’t want to put down. It will have your attention until the very end. I am a fan of the T.V. show Twilight Zone but this is the first Twilight Zone type books I have read, and I loved it.
