Ghost Story

by Peter Straub

For four aging men in the terror-stricken town of Milburn, New York, an act inadvertently carried out in their youth has come back to haunt them. Now they are about to learn what happens to those who believe they can bury the past - and get away with murder.

Peter Straub's classic bestseller is a work of superb horror that, like any good ghost story, stands the test of time - and conjures our darkest fears and nightmares.
