Top 10 Halloween books

In 2006 Book Sense came up with a top ten list of Halloween books. One title on the list:
THE MERCY OF THIN AIR: A Novel, by Ronlyn Domingue (Washington Square Press, $14 paper)

"With a ghost who hangs around from 1920s New Orleans until today, Domingue's novel would make a great Halloween read for the gentler spirits whose interests run toward human inter-relationships."
Read about another book on the list.

Visit Ronlyn Domingue's website and MySpace page; see The Mercy of Thin Air Page 69 Test.

Also see The Rap Sheet's suggested Halloween reading. "If any holiday seems perfectly paired to crime fiction, it’s Halloween," wrote editor J. Kingston Pierce in 2006.
