Click for availability and more information Heart-Shaped Box, by Joe Hill

Another star has joined the horror genre. He walked into the arena under his own writing power, but he is the son of Stephen King. "Heart-Shaped Box" by Joe Hill is vaguely reminiscent of early Stephen King novels and it is very good. Over the hill rock star Judas Coyne has a fascination with macabre collectibles and he decides to buy a ghost on an internet auction site. The ghost arrives attached to a vintage suit wrapped in a black heart-shaped box. Judas thinks the acquisition is enough but finds the suit belonged to Craddock McDermott, the step-father of one of his former groupies who committed suicide after Judas dismissed her from his life. Judas and his current girlfriend Georgia come face to face with the ghost as well as their own dark and troubled pasts. Warner Brothers has already bought the film rights, so read the book first.
