'Buy my stepfather's ghost' read the email. So Jude did. He bought the dead man's suit, delivered in a heart-shaped box, because he wanted it: because his fans ate up that kind of story. It was perfect for his collection: the genuine skulls and the bones, the real honest-to-God snuff movie, the occult books and all the rest of the paraphernalia that goes along with his kind of hard/goth rock. But the rest of his collection doesn't make the house feel cold. The bones don't make the dogs bark; the movie doesn't make Jude feel as if he's being watched. And none of the artefacts bring a vengeful old ghost with black scribbles over his eyes out of the shadows to chase Jude out of his home and make him run for his life...

Joe Hill is the strongest new horror writer since his father, Stephen King, released Carrie 40 years ago. Heart-Shaped Box, debut novel, is as gripping, fast-paced, and haunting as any horror fan could hope for. Jude is an Ozzy Osbourne-esque rock god, who bites off more than he can chew after buying a ghost off the internet. This book is unforgettable. Just do yourself a favour and read it now.
