    The Ghost Box is the story of a paranormal reporter, Reagon Moon, who is caught up in a supernatural mystery that involves his dead girlfriend, an old relic, and a boatload of trouble.The book reminded me a little of the old timey detective novels because of the cynical, sarcastic voice of Reagan Moon and the collection of zany characters he runs into Though not straight up horror, there are some genuinely creepy moments and plenty of action to keep you turning pages, but also some humor Mike The Ghost Box is the story of a paranormal reporter, Reagon Moon, who is caught up in a supernatural mystery that involves his dead girlfriend, an old relic, and a boatload of trouble.The book reminded me a little of the old timey detective novels because of the cynical, sarcastic voice of Reagan Moon and the collection of zany characters he runs into Though not straight up horror, there are some genuinely creepy...
