"See the specter in the glass. Free the terror from the past." Sue Haslep works as a proofreader at Porter Publications. She leads a normal life until strange incidents occur in her apartment; lights switching on and off by themselves, and things being moved from their usual spots. The recurring activity in the bathroom is perhaps the scariest one. It’s as if there’s someone or something that keeps turning on the hot water in the shower and then writes on the foggy mirror. When things start to get scarier and more dangerous, Sue turns to her friend and co-worker, Roshanda, for help. Will they discover what kind of entity lurks in Sue’s new apartment? Specter in the Glass is a paranormal story by Keith R. Rees.

With a steady plot pace, this fascinating modern paranormal tale has a classic premise of a haunted home with a fresh perspective on life after death. Sue is easily a protagonist that readers want to root for as she tries to handle her ghost problem while keep on living her life. There are moments of comedy and drama that I find aptly balanced with the paranormal and dark aspects of the story. The plot’s direction isn’t predictable. I enjoyed trying to guess the truth behind the haunting with all the given clues. There are surprising twists that fans of the genre will appreciate and savor. All in all, Specter in the Glass is a commendable tale from Rees. I look forward to reading more of his work in this genre.
