Death is a New Beginning A Romance Gone so Terribly Wrong
When Chinese actress Jasmine Huang is found brutally murdered onstage, her boyfriend, Chris Mathers, is the prime suspect. Appearance of guilt escalates when Chris disappears from Beijing.

After years of running, Chris lands in Vancouver’s Chinatown. This begins Chris’s journey into hell ”” his landlord is Jasmine’s father, Liang, a ghost whose sole motivation to stay in the world of the living is to avenge her death.

Sex, love, and violence is tightly woven into this dark supernatural thriller full of unexpected turns.

TheReviewChris Mathers was a talented pianist but his life was endangered after being suspected for the murder of his girlfriend, Chinese actress Jasmine Huang. He thought he could escape the torments chasing him from one place to another. Until he came to Chinatown in Vancouver. Then he found himself renting a room that was owned by no less than Jasmine’s father, Liang. Mathers soon was embroiled in a chaotic and revengeful environment that was doing things in his head and harming his body. What happened within the confines of his room were sick, haunting and chilling. If I were in his place, I might have suffered a heart attack and died.

Tormented By Ghosts is a brilliantly written paranormal/supernatural thriller that is sure to set readers wide-eyed in the middle of the night. The history of Chinatown is well depicted in this thriller and the characters grow on the reader. A two thumbs up for Mr. Wesley Robert Lowe!
