Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill

Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill: It’s been a while since I last read a good old fashioned ghost story. Here, aging heavy metal rock star Judas Coin purchases a dead man’s suit, purported to be haunted, just for laughs. Unfortunately, it turns out to be indeed haunted by the spirit of the stepfather of an old flame of Jude’s. The writing was deliciously spooky, the rock star angle was refreshingly different, and the ending was satisfying without feeling too tidy. I’ll have to keep Hill in mind next time I’m in the mood for a scary good time.
