Book Description

July 28 2008
A fatal fire takes three lives and destroys a supposedly haunted house that has been abandoned for over 100 years. Leon and Carol Gould buy the property years later. They build a small hotel over the charred remains. As a novelty, they hope the site's haunted history will attract guests. However, it stops being a game when their young son, Adam, is linked to a mysterious death at the inn. Although the police are quick to blame, nothing can be proven. Matters turn even worse when the boy is connected to additional curious fatalities! An occult expert speculates that a power struggle between supernatural forces has endured on this land since ancient times. If he's right, Leon must find a way to save his family, his guests and his hotel.especially when it becomes evident that Adam is being used as a tool in this unholy conflict!

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing novel about a haunted hotel May 25 2009
Format:Paperback
Wrongful Secrets is a spooky mystery novel that takes place in a new hotel that has been built on the site two previous tragedies, one that occurred almost 20 years before, and another about 100 years before that. Rumors abound about the haunted nature of the site & now its new hotel. People are drawn to it for all kinds of reasons and in all kinds of ways. Wrongful Secrets has a touch of 'Damien' in it, and a hint of 'The Shining', and what I really liked about this book is the explanation that is given for these terrible occurrences. Around about page 200, the story really picked up, and I found from then on, I couldn't put the book down. There is a metaphysical element that really starts to show itself at that point, and I found the concept to be absolutely fascinating. I would like to learn even more about it.

A couple of areas I think the book could have been improved upon was the dialogue at times, and I would have liked even more time to be taken with the big, climactic scenes. However, the overall story is a satisfying one that left me wondering about supernatural occurrences and reflecting upon the nature of good and evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another horror masterpiece from Donald Gorman May 23 2009
By ellen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I started to say that reading Don Gorman's books scares the pants off of me but that wouldn't sound very er, nice.
Just let me say when I read his books, I sleep with a light on. And that doesn't help!
Wrongful Secrets has many levels of consciousness - years ago, a fatal fire, killing three girls, occurred on the grounds a modern hotel is built - perhaps the mystique or aura of mystery will aid folks to come hopefully to see ghosts -
But a young boy, the hotel owners' son, is being affected by an entity, Mr. Fuego - Mr. Fire! The entity is telling the boy the wrongful secrets that folks have apparently done, and they need to be punished for them.
An expert of paranormal activity comes and predicts the negative energy of the place will create a great tragedy.
Whoa!
I have to stop and catch my breath!
You care for the characters, especially the child who is being controlled.
What happens is amazing -
Mr. Gorman writes effortlessly and paints pictures in your mind as you see the words.
An excellent writer with another hit on his hands.
Going to turn on another light...
