Nov 11, 2012An incredible start to what I see as a prosperous career in writing. Charlie Wilkins has done a fantastic job with his debut novel; Richard Faraday, Ghost Detective. A dark and mysterious adventure that will captivate any fan of horror and the occult. If you are looking for a book that never holds a dull moment then read this! Each page pulls you deeper into the insane yet fascinating world of Richard Faraday. A book geniously written by an author truly and obviously passionate about his work. I await the sequel with great anticipation.
