This smart and twisty ghost story delivers a wealth of sinister shocks. Debut novelist Trang Thanh Tran packs She Is a Haunting with plenty of ghoulish surprises and spooky revelations, as well as social commentary about Vietnam at the start of a new century. Darkly funny and surprisingly touching, She Is a Haunting should appeal to fans of The Shining.
