Dan is a professional ghost hunter who’s never actually found a ghost. But his newest case is promising: a cursed Russian rifle allegedly haunted by a demon. Anyone who touches the antique weapon dies within 24 hours. But for Dan, it’s personal - he’s still mourning the death of his fiancée Adelaide, and he’s desperate to find proof that ghosts exist. At any cost.

Mean little hellion and a snowflake Mom, what could happen? Little Hellion has daddy fooled and that was a little frustrating for us listeners as we screamed wake up fool, wake up. Lots of action, violence and frustration on all of the characters parts and the reader gets caught up in it. A good listen. Wish there were more books out there about sociopathic children. Little angels with fangs and bloodlust, my kind of read.

I believed these characters, they felt like they could exist. I hope this book gives women the courage to move out and forward like the main character did in this book. The husband was a real monster and drunk unpredictable monsters are the worse kind. Glad she found her safe haven, glad I was a part of it.

It doesn't seem like the perfect house, but screw it, it's good enough to rent for a year. Unfortunately for Boyd, Adeline, and their two young daughters, it's immediately clear they chose the wrong place. The nightmare begins with violent coughs and headaches. Food starts to rot almost as soon as they take it inside. A pet tarantula goes missing. Some family members begin to exhibit creepy behavior. Then the ghosts arrive, and all hell breaks loose....

Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett reveals the real story behind Hillary Clinton’s deep state collaborators in government and exposes their nefarious actions during and after the 2016 election. This audiobook reveals how persons within the FBI and Barack Obama’s Justice Department worked improperly to help elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. When this suspected effort failed, those same people appear to have pursued a contrived investigation of President Trump in an attempt to undo the election results and remove him as president.

A real eye opener about the corruption that is Washington. It made me so angry. Something has to be done about this. Heads must roll and I believe in the end all of the traitors will be held accountable.

The Ferox assault has been escalating, drawing Jonathan into combat more and more frequently. With each passing day, he's grown stronger. He can't be certain, but his attackers seem to be getting...more dangerous? ...and, of course, Heyer is gone, again. Then came the glitch. Unexpectedly pulled from battle, Jonathan finds he cannot recall the final moments of his last confrontation. Convinced that his memory loss was no accident, he must uncover the truth.
