Hoping to promote the Glass Dolphin antiques shop, co-owners Arabella Carpenter and Emily Garland agree to sponsor a hole in one contest at a charity golf tournament. The publicity turns out to be anything but positive, however, when Arabella’s errant tee shot lands in the woods next to a corpse. They soon learn that the victim is closely related to Arabella’s ex-husband, who had been acting as the Course Marshal. With means, opportunity, and more than enough motive, he soon becomes the police department’s prime suspect, leaving Arabella and Emily determined to clear his name.

The collection begins with "The Ghost of Hooker Alley," which introduces listeners to 10-year-old Sarah and six-year-old Tommy.

But they aren't the only ones in that alley.... "The Monkey's Penis" features Chris, a teenage boy who receives a birthday gift unlike any other. In "Gary's Children," a man's quest for stress relief leads to terror, and an unexpected kidnapping takes place in "Aliens Wrecked Our Kegger."

It is always an event when Tom publishes a new book and this one is definitely no exception. In this chilling volume of more than 30 chapters - with many chapters containing more than one story - you will meet the Faceless Bride of Lime Street and you will also be introduced to Anfield’s unknown ghostly woman before visiting the creepy establishment known as The Devil’s Arms, where everything is just too good to be true. You will not find the usual hackneyed stories of supernatural cliché in this volume.

I can't wait to hear the next part to the story! KuroKoneko Kamen does not disappoint with this new installment in her genderbent series, and L. A. Johnson breathes life into it quite well!

Although it is book 3 in the series, this book can easily stand alone! I was hooked beginning to end! It was like reading two books at the same time! Each story as good as the other! I could not stop listening as I just had to know how the stories ended! I was caught off guard by plot twists that were unexpected to the very end! I loved the combination of author and narrator! Wendy truly helped to bring this work of art to life for me! I would definately reccomend this book to all!

Whittaker passed the drinks over. “Anyway, it seems that he’s got himself into a bit of bother,” he continued. “A very serious bit of bother.” “Bother?” repeated Kendall. Whittaker heaved a sigh. “Yes you know,” he replied. “Trouble.” Kendall nodded. “Oh trouble, I get you,” he said. “So what sort of bother are we talking about?” Whittaker took another drink. “Well it’s a case of murder I’m afraid.”

I really enjoyed the storyline and plot! the characters were well written and easy to visualise. The only part of this book that fell short for me was the narration. The narration was a bit dry and emotionless in my opinion, which is a pity soncecthe story was very well done. I would still reccomend it, especially to those with a love of history and the civil war era!
