Denton Road has a history of the supernatural, both in fiction and reality. The author took those scary stories and made his own.

In my opinion, this is a good ghost story with likable characters, good foreshadowing, and some gruesomely vivid scenes. Having said that, the author's writing style made it very hard to get into the book. The point of view is constantly switched from third person limited to omniscient to first person and back all within the course of a page. Add on top of that things you would expect characters in a bad horror movie to do (I.E. go into the haunted house, fix an engine in front of said house at night WHILE trying to escape, etc.)

Overall I would say it is a good effort for a first novel and with an editor and some tweaking could turn into a great book. ( )
