“The Grimoire of Caligari is a mesmerizing treat for those who love the occult and thrillers. Author Stephen B. King masterfully weaves emotional vignettes with music and cultural references from different decades to help bring his characters to life. In the story, the main character attempts to bring his wife and daughters to life as well. The problem is they’re dead. A book of spells from a famous Medieval wizard may hold the answers. Treat yourself to this lively tale of the deceased. It’s to die for!”
