CJ's Ghost is a false myth in Grand Theft Auto V .

Description [ ]

During the mission Hood Safari , while the player approaches Grove Street , three men can be seen riding their bikes in the opposite direction. The first two men bear a strong resemblance to Carl Johnson and Big Smoke . The third biker is disputed, with fans saying he appears to be either Ryder or Sweet. This detail is a recreation of a scene from the first mission in GTA San Andreas, Big Smoke , where the protagonists escape from the Ballas using BMX bikes. Also, pedestrians can be heard saying "What's good, CJ?" or "Hey CJ", while talking on the phone. However, this could be just another person with the same initials. The player may occasionally see a pedestrian on the street that resembles CJ's default look from GTA San Andreas.

The fact that Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas have different universes makes this myth false. The image seen in the infobox is simply a modification of CJ.

‘Haunting’ Sara Sheridan

‘Intriguing, atmospheric, thought-provoking’ Alexandra Bell

‘Beautifully crafted, thrilling and atmospheric’ Rebecca Netley

In the midst of the woods stands a house called Lichen Hall.

This place is shrouded in folklore – old stories of ghosts, of witches, of a child who is not quite a child.

Now the woods are creeping closer, and something has been unleashed.

Pearl Gorham arrives in 1965, one of a string of young women sent to Lichen Hall to give birth. And she soon suspects the proprietors are hiding something.

Then she meets the mysterious mother and young boy who live in the grounds – and together they begin to unpick the secrets of this place.

As the truth comes to the surface and the darkness moves in, Pearl must rethink everything she knew – and risk what she holds most dear.
