About The Book

Sheppard’s Inn was a quiet senior-living facility where people spent the remainder of their golden years relaxing as they socialized, watched television, played checkers, or read a good book. Some of the young at heart spent their time reminiscing about “the good old days.” Others would just lie in soft, comfortable chairs dreaming of the future when they would join their spouses who had passed over to a place of peace, tranquility, and painless existence. All things were good at Sheppard’s Inn until everything began to change. At first, the events were subtle. The building’s heater struggled to keep up with the sudden chills that passed through the hallways. A sickening smell would seep through every nook and cranny. The lights would flicker off and on, and the televisions would go blank. But nothing was worse than the screeching sounds heard during the night—sounds not normally created in the world of the living! Adam Simmons, his father (a former police detective), and his mother (a high school drama teacher) were trying to live under the radar. They had been forced to disappear from Huntingdon Valley because of the arrest of Philadelphia’s biggest mobster. They’d had no idea what would happen when they secured jobs at Sheppard’s Inn. They certainly weren’t expecting something even more sinister and dangerous than the mob. Strange, supernatural events shook their beliefs. Items were disappearing, and people were getting sick. Adam had to push back his fears and help his parents solve this dilemma before someone got seriously hurt. If there was a ghost haunting Sheppard’s Inn, Adam would do whatever it took to expose it. Once again, he would prove that everything is not always as it seems.
