when i was a young child i used to read R.L. Stines books Goosebumps. heard of em? (most ppl have) but anyways that same author tried his hand at an adult novel in '95 called superstitious. it was extremly under-rated. its an excelent novel. it was a fairly quick read for me because i was really drawn into it. itl almost 400 pages long in paperback. if u havent allready checked it out, try and find it somewhere. its a good read.
