Meet the Carnacki Institute’s operatives. JC Chance: the team leader, brave, charming, and almost unbearably arrogant. Melody Chambers: the science geek who keeps the antisupernatural equipment running. And Happy Jack Palmer: the terminally gloomy telepath. Their mission: Do Something about Ghosts. Lay them to rest, send them packing, or just kick their nasty ectoplasmic arses….
The Ghost Finders are investigating a haunting at the long-abandoned Haybarn Theater, which is being renovated. But work has been thrown off-schedule by the some peculiar and unnatural activities. And after the potentially world-altering recent events of their previous assignment, the team thinks that a haunted theater (aren't they all?) will be a walk in the park.

I have listened to all of SRG's works and I think this is his best. It's his classic formula of an opening minidrama followed by a great mystery.
The characters are more flushed out and human, while the classic horror is amped up several notches. You can see it unplay like a movie in your mind. He also ties it into many of his other series with character references.
He shifts wonderfully and fluidly between all of the accents of the UK. He is a pleasure to listen to.
Alester. He plays no less that 4 characters in the book and would be a dinner party in and of himself.
Brain candy taken to a new fantasy level.
