I have been Simon Feximal's companion, assistant, and chronicler for 20 years now, and during that time my Casebooks of Feximal the Ghost-Hunter have spread the reputation of this most accomplished of ghost-hunters far and wide. Here is how my association with Feximal came about. I dare say it may not be quite what you expect.

What a completely enjoyable book!. It put me in mind of something Edgar Rice Burroughs might have been gifted by a much loved uncle. The story flowed seemlessly through the period of history in which it was placed. The characters described and behaved so true to form I swear I could see them. I was pulled into the story despite misgivings about reading a book on "ghost stories" and found it extremely entertaining. Is there more? I have to find out!

Amy Chastain has made a lot of enemies - none so ruthless as the insanely powerful New Ruling Order (NRO). When they killed her husband, it was hell. Then they targeted her children by injecting them with a dangerous, experimental isotope. Now Amy trusts only one man to help her: the ex-commander of SEAL Team 7. In the company of Navy SEALs, Jace “Mac” Mackenzie was in his physical element. Now he’s on the run from the same cabal that poisoned Amy’s children. That doesn’t stop him from launching a mission to bring down the NRO - and find an antidote. But the clock is ticking.

Simon Weston grew up royal in a place where aristocracy still mattered. Serving Queen and country meant everything to him, until MI6 marked him as damaged goods and he left his home in disgrace. Ian Taggart showed him a better way to serve his fellow man and introduced him to Sanctum, a place to pursue his passion for dominance and submission. Topping beautiful subs was a lovely distraction until he met Chelsea, and becoming her master turned into Simon's most important mission.

MI6 agent Damon Knight prided himself on always being in control. His missions were executed with cold, calculating precision. His club, The Garden, was run with an equally ordered and detached decadence. But his perfect world was shattered by one bullet, fired from the gun of his former partner. That betrayal almost cost him his life and ruined his career. His handlers want him to retire, threatening to revoke his license to kill if he doesn't drop his obsession with a shadowy organization called The Collective.

I sigh every time I come to the end of this book whether I'm reading or listening to it. Its like coming to the end of your very favorite fairly and they all live happily ever after. I just LOVE this book and Ryan West does a wonderful job of making varied voices and accents.
For anyone no familiar with the series you can read any of them as standalone. I'm fairly certain curiosity will lead you to read/listen to the rest. The series gets progressively better and better with each book. Don't miss it.
