Description

On a well-deserved hiatus from the ghoulish grind of their TV show, Ghoul Getters, psychic medium M. J. Holliday, her boyfriend, Heath, and her best friend, Gilley, are back home in Boston. But there's no rest for the weary ghost busters. M. J.'s ex comes to her for help—his fiancée's brother Luke seems haunted by a sinister spirit. The crew sets up surveillance cameras to watch for the possessive poltergeist while Luke is sleeping. But when he goes outside in the middle of the night and returns hours later covered in blood, they are all very concerned—especially when the news reports the murder of a young woman in the neighborhood. Now M. J., Heath, and Gilley must remain self-possessed as they try to stop a wicked ghost whose behavior is anything but neighborly.

        June 2, 2014
        Laurie's strong eighth Ghost Hunter mystery (after 2012's What a Ghoul Wants) plunges psychic M.J. Holliday, along with her darkly handsome boyfriend, Heath Whitefeather, and her flamboyantly hilarious best friend, Gilley Gillespie, into a world of personal and supernatural drama. The trouble begins when M.J.'s previous boyfriend, Steven Sable, turns to the trio for help with a mysterious, paranormal shadow that has been haunting his new fiancee's brother. From that point on, their problems only multiply. As a killer's ghost actively taunts M.J. through her efforts at understanding him, the police remain dubious about the presence of lurking murder suspects at the scene of a crime, and a local reporter first catches M.J. talking to a victim's ghost before pursuing this potentially explosive story. The fundamental charm of the Ghost Hunter series shines through in this novel: the main trio's personal dynamics remain playful, even within the context of demonic possession and slashed throats. As a result, their poor investigative choices come off as madcap and their fear and anxiety bring to mind a mature version of Saturday morning cartoon adventures, all without slipping into parody or caricature.
