Eleven-year-old Philip Noble has a big problem. His dad has appeared to him as a member of the Dead Fathers Club, a club for "ghost dads" whose murders are unavenged. His father's road accident, it turns out, was no accident at all.

Uncle Alan is responsible for his dad's death, and if Philip doesn't succeed in killing his uncle before his dad's birthday, just ten weeks away, his dad's spirit will never rest.

So begins Philip's quest to avenge his dad and to save his mum from the greasy clutches of Uncle Alan, who seems intent on taking his dad's place in their lives. But Philip finds himself both uneasy of his mission and distrustful of the ghost that claims to be his father. Plus, he's distracted by Leah Polonius, the gorgeous daughter of Uncle Alan's Bible-bashing business partner. What's a young lad to do?

    " I would give this book a 3.5. It's well written and an engaging story line. It seems kind of M. Night though - in a 6th Sense kind of way. "

    " The premise of the novel is inspired by Hamlet: a kid is visited by the ghost of his recently deceased father, who reveals he was actually murdered by his brother. The novel is written in first person, from the point of view of an 11-year-old with a striking propensity for similes. "

    " This is a wonderful, quick read. It is written by the 11 year old boy who sees and talks to his father's ghost. As written on the book cover,it is an updated Hamlet story. The author is spot on as an 11 year old writing about the experiences he is going thru. Is he really interacting with his Dad's ghost or is he imagining the encounters because he can't deal with his feelings any other way. Either way, you can't help but feel that this kid needs someone in his life to just give him a hug and really listen. "

    " This was an interesting story. It was cute. It was kind of predictable though "
