I couldn’t put down The Shape of Night by Tess Gerritsen. The story captures you right from the start with Ava Collette’s escape to a coastal village in Maine.

The suspense builds as she rents an old house named Brodie’s Watch, only to find herself haunted by its ghostly past.

The eerie presence of Captain Jeremiah Brodie adds an intriguing twist. Ava’s interactions with the ghost blur the lines between reality and the supernatural, making you question what’s real. The psychological tension keeps you on edge, and the romantic element adds depth to the mystery.

The village’s dark secrets unravel slowly, and the stakes become higher. Each discovery pulls you deeper into the chilling narrative. Is there a killer among the villagers, or is the ghost responsible for the deaths of previous inhabitants? You’ll be guessing until the very end.
