Knock and You Will See Me by Andrew Cull

Published in Dec. 2017 as an ebook.

(from the book description)

“We buried Dad in the winter. It wasn’t until the spring that we heard from him again.”

Knock and You Will See Me is a new ghost story by award winning writer-director Andrew Cull.

When grieving Ellie Ray finds a crumpled, handwritten note from her recently deceased father, hidden behind the couch, she assumes that her middle boy, Max, left it there. It has a single word written on it: WHY. But, as more and more letters begin to appear throughout the house, Ellie and her three boys will find themselves dragged into a deeply sinister mystery surrounding her father’s death.

I have always loved a good Ghost Story. From Joe Hill's Heart Shaped Box, to probably one of the best stories ever, Ghost Story from Peter Straub. 

What Andrew Cull has given us is a moody slow-burning gem about ghosts and a dark underlying evil.

 Knock and You Can Hear Me is a 77 page novella. 77 pages does not seem like enough space to craft a truly scary ghost story, but Andrew has done just that. The story moves along slowly at first, giving us background and moving forward with Ellie as she deals with the death of her father. The tale unfolds at a pace that helps build the feelings of a growing saddness and dread. As the story progresses the pace starts to quicken as more and more strange happenings effect the the family. By the final pages everything comes together in a encounter that you will not see coming. 

This is a very well crafted little story that will keep you engaged till the end. The scares may come slowly at first for some, but you will not be disappointed when you turn the last page. 

Andrew Cull is an accomplisshed writer and Director. His other books include Hope and Walker, Did You Forget About Me? and The Trade. He also wrote for the TV series Urban Gothic and wrote and directed the film The Possession of David O'Reilly.
