I absolutely love this series as they are thought provoking with humor. In this book Walt is hired by Dr. Skinner (a savant) and Jacob Watson to find the NESD (neuron encoding synapse disruptor) which is locked in Walt’s safe. He finally finds out what it is and used for after doing research and ends up giving to the Dr. to help people. I loved the ending with Dr. Skinner and the work with the homeless by his family and friends. My only complaint it was too short. I love all of the characters especially Walt and his extended family. Great narration as usual. Highly recommend if you enjoy thought provoking mysteries with humor. Keep them coming! I was given this free audiobook by author and have voluntarily left this review.

Zabat's Comet promises a stunning astronomical display as it narrowly passes our planet. Then a solar flare nudges it hurtling toward Earth. Humanity crumbles during the countdown to doomsday. But Zabat is more than just a comet. The impact brings not swift extinction but a massive cloud of dust that appears to have a mind of its own. A sinister intelligence. A force that threatens to change what's left of humanity. Jack, Colleen, Lara, and Dan survived the violent chaos of the countdown. Now, they're about to find out that after doomsday, there are horrors even worse than death.

I think this may be start of series as there is question left at end of book if conspiracy verses aliens. I did enjoy the book it is about a comet hit earth with deadly dust and the character development. Main characters are Dan, Craig, Colleen, Lara and Jack all trying to survive. I think this may be start of series as there is question left at end of book if conspiracy verses aliens. Recommend is you like a different Apocalyptic.

I have to admit I do enjoy a good cozy mystery once in a while and enjoyed this one especially the narration and characters. The main character is Zion Sawyer owner of the coffee shop in Sequoia CA and is dating Tate. The book has great character development, Jaguar now has music shop and sees his daughter, Rebecca longtime friend came to stay at Zion’s, and Tate is fostering Logan. This book is about Poole, also a police officer from LA who worked a case with Tate, he is on suspension from shooting a kid back in LA this is where the mystery comes in.The book has an unexpected ending. Recommend if you enjoy cozy mystery series but suggest you listen from the start to know the characters.

If need a quick zombies book this is for you. It is full typical zombie gore and guts with good characters. Mr. Gasper hires team to find his son Billy, Mark joins them in search of his sister and Rachel also tags along hoping for good story to report, then action takes place.

I totally enjoyed this realistic, complicated crime book which I could not stop listening. Good narration and great characters which include Dr.Orville Madison, Detective Ray Blocker, Addie (Orville’s wife), Cassandra (daughter and victim), Peewee (Charles), Bugsy (Willie), Marvin and Detective Kyle Atkins. The book is about Orville’ daughter beaten raped and shot and he wants revenge always saying “Everything I did, I did for you”. The book is full of realistic action, twists and turns that is heart and guts wrenching and highly recommend this suspenseful thriller and would enjoy listening to more of author’s book with same narrator.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves the supernatural ghost stories. This is the 2nd time I’ve listened to books but 1st as box set and loved it as I did not have to wait for next book and not having to find the books in order on my IPod.
Book1 Moving In Brian and his wife Jenny move into New Hampshire house after his heart attack and find it haunted. My favorite characters were Leo and Sam who help Brian with the ghosts especially Paul and his family. Sylvia, Jenny’s friend is a medium and visits and recommends salt and iron for protection. There is a lot of action with angry evil ghosts.
Book2 The Dunewalkers Brian is now considered a ghostbuster entrepreneur and is hired by William Engberg to help to get rid of all the ghosts in and around his house prominent ghost is Kathleen and there is Indian ghosts . (Poor dogwalker Joseph and his great danes). Brian armed with his equipment and an old journal attempt to help but need other’s help before he helps William and recommends salt and iron. Leo is again in book. Paul is back and Jeanette, Charles and Ellen try to bind him into a doll, then there is Florence, so sorry for Sylvia. What happens to William you have to listen
Book 3 Middlebury Sanitarium (a favorite) There are many ghosts in the sanitarium under the control of the king. Carl Reynard wants Brian to investigate the unwanted activities as he wants the place sold. Ken is the guard on the 3rd shift who had been able to keep them quite until recently and helps Brain with the most active areas. Leo gives Brian a powerful gift which gives him the ability to see all the ghosts. All hell breaks loose with the ghosts as the King arrives. Sylvia’s niece Ann (wannabee ghosthunter) comes to help Brian. Francine a young ghost from his past is also there and she also hates the King. There are many deaths occurring during his investigation. . Florence is brought in to help destroy the King
Book 4 The First Church The Reverend from the church calls Brian to help with the abnormal activity that is occurring and has video of what happened to 2 boys who had their eyes removed in the church. Mr. Boyd collected 6 heads of Japanese soldiers when he was in the service and the soldiers want them back. Shane from the Berkley Street series (which I highly recommend) come as he speaks Japanese and to help Brian. Jim (who sees ghosts) and his grandfather Luke (who is blind) and sake really help Brian. Miles Cunningham has been putting the skulls in the church as well as serving the Japanese soldiers sake to keep from them killing him. Leo communicates with Jim and then with Brian to also help him understand the soldiers. Sad ending.
Book 5 The Paupers' Crypt Brian wants break from ghosthunting and takes job as superintendent of the cemetery but encounters more ghosts and seems he cannot get away from them. John and Brian enter the crypt and find a skeleton and get locked into it and Ghost Mitchel tells them to use much caution when trying to find the door to get out, they run into several malevolent spirits one who rules them all. His wife Jenny cannot get in touch with Brian talked with Shane for help then Sylvia arrives and will get in touched with Leo. They are met with many difficulties, fog, ghosts, you have to listen to rest.
Book 6 The Academy (favorite) Brian had given up ghosts until his cousin Mitchell a principle of the Academy asks for his help. There are 2 evil ghosts (Weiss and Weston) that are wreaking havoc in the school and getting people to do there evil deeds. Felt sorry for Herman, Aaron, Marilyn. Larry, Eddie, Charlie and more. Brian talked with Ernest (Weiss’s son) and got more info. Enjoyed Beth the detective and again Leo. Loved that Charlie went to live with his brother.
If you enjoy ghosts I HIGHLY recommend as well as the Berkley Street Series. I was given this book from ScareStreet and voluntarily left this review. THANK YOU!!!

When Clare, Lise, and Kelly arrive at The Scarry Inn just before a major storm, they're thrilled to learn they'll be staying in a room known as The Coffin, which is adorned with coffin beds and other macabre decorations. Little do they know that one of them will end up in a coffin for real - because a tornado isn't the only thing threatening the inn's grand opening.

This is 2nd of Scarry Inn series and was a suspenseful murder mystery like the 1st. Good characters some likeable (Dick, Madge, Kelly to name a few) couple not. Interesting setup up of the inn‘s rooms and food served then a tornado. This murder mystery could be listened to by anyone especially ok for teens and young adults as does not have gross gory scenes but unexpected murderer. Would listen to next book.

I totally enjoyed listening to this alien/dystopian book 3rd in series and thus far the best. I totally enjoy the characters Amanda, Bill, Ellie, Mike, Kylie and Uncle Jack. Most of the good aliens had left except a few and the vicious aliens (scourge) are killing and eating men and kidnapping fertile women while Susan is working to find a cure for the virus for remaining humans and is using Ben who can also communicate with the scourge. Cannot wait to find out about the women the scourge have kidnapped and if cure is found and who ends up surviving. Recommend if you want a different zombie/alien book.

It started with bright lights; a new medical technology, promising to eradicate all human ills. History of blood clots? Cholesterol clogging up the old ticker? There was a nanobot for that. It wasn’t cheap of course, and everyone knew that new technology had bugs in it. But hey, why not let the rich be the guinea pigs for once? Fast-forward a year, and the one percent began dying en masse. The nanobots had evolved to view aging as a virus and were reacting by shutting down the host.
