From ghost hunter to ghost, haunted.

Barrett has a plan—help Austin regain his memory, surround him with his friends and loved ones, and lead him into the light. Unfortunately, the tragic investigation of a melancholy ghost derails everything.

As new lead investigator, Thai struggles to maintain the high ratings SCI has always enjoyed. After a few subpar investigations, the network execs demand results, even if it means the team must put their lives on the line for a house more deadly than its dead occupants.

There are worse things than being dead.

Austin knows something is wrong. Most people ignore him, time eludes him, and his hands are basically worthless. If only he could remember what happened, he would have the answers he so desperately seeks. He’s sick of Barrett’s lies and Casey’s deflections. Austin will have to figure this one out on his own. Will the truth set him free, or destroy his soul?

Review: This is the second book in the Spirit Chasers series, you will want to read book one first. This is not a stand alone. Having said that this is a much mellower book than the first. There is a lot less action than the first and I feel that is due to Austin's current state of being. The rest of the group are great characters, but they are way less reckless than Austin was. Also the plot focuses alot on Austin and his predicament. To me it seemed there was a bit less ghost hunting than in the previous book. Although I did like the kid ghosts that tormented the group in the antique shop. They were funny. I wasn't crazy about the self-aware house though it seemed a little to close to Rose Red for my tastes. I did like the imaginative way that Austin and Casey worked around the new development in their relationship.
Ms Mayor is a wonderful writer, and very creative building upon the paranormal foundation we know. She had done a great job with this book and I can't wait for the next one in the series.
