Format: Hardcover
A group of scouts and their leaders go off for a camping weekend in a forest in Owasippe, Michigan. But while there, something happens that makes them all commit suicide, often in bloodily horrific ways. One of the scouts was the friend of young Sparky Wallace, a 12-year-old with Asperger's (hasn't every fictional child these days?), who becomes obsessed with the need to know what caused the tragedy. So his father Jack starts off on a journey that takes him from Owasippe to the Kampinos Forest in Poland where Jack's great-grandfather had died in similar circumstances during the war.

This story is firmly based in the supernatural so it's necessary to leave your inner sceptic at the door. As the story unfolds, we become aware that there is something living in our forests that has the ability to drive people into such panic that they would rather kill themselves than wait for the horrific death they fear awaits them. Sparky seems to know more than he's telling and uses his (remarkable) knowledge of astrology to see what future lies in the stars for himself and the other protagonists. Unfortunately he rarely tells them, so each time one ends up dead, Sparky rather annoyingly says something like 'I knew that was going to happen.' (I found I was developing an unfortunate but overwhelming desire to slap him upside the head as the story progressed.)

The book is well written but a little over-stretched and repetitive which prevents the tension building as much as it might have done. The characterisation is quite strong with both Jack and Sparky coming over as credible and well-rounded, despite Sparky's supernatural tendencies, which get stronger as the book goes on. But these are integral to the story, and in that context work well.

I have read most of Graham's books to date. In fact, as soon as I've finished written this review I will be reading his book called Drought. I found Forest Ghost to be immensely riveting. Even when I had to put it down, it was on my mind wondering what was going to happen next. I kept on trying to second-guess about some of the things that were happening. I was right about a few things but can't say much. I don't want to be a spoilsport. I'm only going to say this. Call me a great big softie if you want, I don't care. There were tears in my eyes when I finished. This book is so, so different to other books by this author such as his first book The Manitou. I am one of Graham Masterton's many many fans and have been since reading The Manitou when It first came out. Thanks Graham for another great book.

It has been a while since Graham Masterton scared me with his writing. I love most of his work. The detail behind the story pieced together nicely. It was not so much a gory piece as other book by the author but a genuinely haunting ghost story But this for me has to be one of his best works a while. I would highly recommend it to fans.
