A STIR OF ECHOES

1958 ***** 211 pages

In this chilling page-turner from the great mystery writer, Richard Matheson, a man's mind is turned on to the supernatural after something said during a hypnotism has an undesired effect. He begins to see a young woman in his house, possibly a ghost. He also begins to predict the future. This book is a great examination into the hidden abilities of the human mind, and it's sure to chill you to your core. Turned into an equally chilling film in 1999, starring Kevin Bacon, which I had actually already seen twice before reading this book.
