The Other Side
The True Story of the Boy Who Sees Ghosts
by Denice Jones
In the tradition of best-selling suspense novelists Stephen King and Dean Koontz comes this terrifying, true life ghosts story that begins when Denice Jones, an attractive divorcee, remarries. She and her new husband buy the house of their dreams—a house that becomes a metaphor for terror. There, Michael, her ten year old son, begins to see things nobody else does, objects he describes as light and dark shadows. These ghosts, good and evil, come to him in the night whispering their secrets.
At first, Denice and her husband do not believe him, but a school counselor and a psychologist pronounce the boy normal. When lamps crash, objects spin out of sight, and people are locked in closets, they come to believe their house is haunted.
They try exorcisms and psychic detectives. Nothing helps. Finally they sell their house and move to a new one, hoping to leave their troubles behind. A few days later, they discover the ghosts have followed them...
Angry at Michael, their demonic acts become not only treacherous, but murderous. When Michael tells his mother that the evil spirits have told him they will kill him before they let him go to the other side, Denice realizes she must find a way to save her son.
