Jace's return to Kansas is an instant reminder that there really is no place like home. The tavern is still brimming with losers, practical jokers, and motorcycle chicks. Even the town's only Goth is still wearing eyeliner. But just as Jace is about to click her heels and hightail out of there, she's roped into a brand-new case. Somebody is possessed. And the bodies are piling up....
They call him the Gallowsman. According to legend, he was sentenced to hang-though his crimes still have not been specified. When he was strung up to die, his spirit stuck around waiting for people to hang themselves... so he could steal their bodies. Now, with the undead rising up and going on a rampage, Jace must put her own neck on the line. Can she get the Gallowsman to give up the ghost?

After 5 solid books, THIS is the conclusion? Jace might as well have woken in her own bed to realize it was all just a dream. save your time and money!!!

I was a little wary of what this last book may be in the end due to many of the reviews I read prior to listening to this one. Upon listening to the last sentence of this story, I couldn't help but smile. The ending was perfectly suited to this series :) I couldn't have imagined a better way for this to go. No spoiler here. You'll just have to see what you think for yourself. I say worth the price or credit. Narration was perfect all the way through. I listened to all 6 books over a 4 day period and found them thoroughly entertaining. Very pleased.

The whole series is fun. Made me laugh out loud more times than I can remember. Worth a credit.
I read the reviews, so I was prepared. How could I pass up the last book whose dialogue/banter/cadence reminded me of The Thin Man and His Girl Friday movies. He brings back almost all the previous characters and then fades to black. How can you not love the way it ended? Outstanding narrator, gonna miss the series, but what a way to go! Well Done!
it was a good book all the way until the cliffhanger ending... I'm super upset about how it just cut off with no real conclusion. i have to ask are we missing a chapter because if not then that sucks!
It ranks among the the most entertaining. It is fast moving and fun to read/listen to.
Love the back and forth between Jace and Charlie.
She is great. She sounds natural, like she's not just reading a book.
If this is the last book, I am very upset at the ending. A last book should have wrapped up all the strings not leave a cliffhanger. Most of the time it kept me interested and laughing.
If this is the last book.... I'm pulling for Charlie.
The story was extremely confusing. I wasn't sure what the heck was going on in the beginning. Then it made a little more sense. I heard it's the last book in the series and I feel it leaves you hanging. Johanna Parker was awesome as usual.
This was a great and fun way to revisit the whole series before saying goodbye. As for the reviewers who are mad about the ending... That's silly, theres no mystery, its plain. Were you paying attention at all throughout the books?
