Ghosts by Chip Scarinzi is an intriguing suspense novel. Bennett Covington had an unusual day. During his workday, a fire broke out in his building, and Bennett and his associates had to evacuate. Bennett calls his very pregnant wife and lets her know he is coming home early. While waiting for a ferry, Bennett accidentally sees a murder taking place. Before he can act, Bennett is attacked and knocked unconscious. Twelve hours later after regaining consciousness, Bennett finds himself covered in blood with a gun in his hand. Horrified, he sees a dead man lying next to him. Determined to exonerate himself, Bennett goes to confront the killers. Again, Bennet finds himself at a murder scene holding the weapon. Now Bennett is the chief suspect in multiple murders. Death and darkness are dogging his footsteps and the harder he tries to escape its clutches, the deeper he finds himself in its grip. Caught in a trap, Bennett desperately misses his expectant wife and small daughter. Will he ever be able to prove his innocence and escape the psychopaths that have made his life a living hell? Will he ever be able to go home again?

Ghosts by Chip Scarinzi is a gripping suspense novel filled with intrigue. The story captures you right from the first page and takes you on a thrilling roller coaster ride of subterfuge and malevolence. The storyline unfolds to uncover a sinister plot with Bennett at its center. Bennett, unaccustomed to the machinations of evil, is in way over his head and ill-equipped to combat his tormentor. I couldn't imagine how he could defeat and survive such a powerful adversary. The villain is demonic in perception and is a crafty and cunning foe. The evil that emanates from him suggests other-worldly sources and leaves the reader speculating about his origins. This transfixing suspense novel will have you sitting on the edge of your seat until the very end. It will delight and horrify suspense fans everywhere.
