The Ridge

The Ridge - Michael Koryta An old eccentric living in the remote hills of eastern Kentucky makes building and maintaining a lighthouse, which illuminates nothing, his life’s work. When he is discovered dead at the top of his structure, investigation into his death reveals some disturbing town secrets. At the same time a wild cat sanctuary is moving in adjacent to the lighthouse property and as the investigation progresses the animals become more and more restless in their new surroundings. Is it just their surroundings, or is something evil afoot in Blade Ridge?

Mr. Koryta gives the reader a good story and a really interesting moral question throughout this book. I am, however, still on my quest for a really awesome ghost story, and although a good read, this one did not quite fill that criteria.
