Nearly Departed by Max Patrick Schlienger

Dennis has been dressing up as Dr. September for a little while to do some research for a new book that he's wanting to write. With the help of Doctor Harding he's been sending some of the people he's been seeing to him. Dennis doesn't really believe in ghosts and Dr. Harding keeps tell him that these people are just seeing things that aren't there and there is no such thing as Ghosts.

One day he gets a call from a lady wanting to know if Dennis would come by and speak to her and the ghost that she has in her house. So Dennis tells his wife Alena that he's going out again to do some more research. His wife isn't happy about him doing this and tells him so.

Meeting Elphane was interesting and not knowing what he's in for leads him to meet a real ghost. Evy is Elphane's older sister and has been haunting the chair in a room for about 8 years. when Dennis first meets Evy he faints. Being he doesn't know what to do he takes a trip to see Dr. Harding. Harding has a problem with Dennis believing in what he's seeing. Harding tells Dennis to be careful with Elphane because she problem has some kind of delusional thing going on.

Then he meets Spinner who's a private detective and thinks Dennis is a con man. Dennis Tries to explain to Spinner that he's not and after the meeting he calls Dr. Hardning again and tells him. After hearing a few stories from Evy the next day, Dennis knows that there's more going on and is determened to find out.

You'll have to read the book to find out how it ends. I was surprised with how good of a story it was. I think if you like ghost stories, you'll like this one.

Well, I'm off to start another book. Remember a book isn't ever farther then a bookshelf at the library, a book store or the internet. Enjoy a good one.
