Publisher's Summary

Shane Ryan and his ghostbusting partner, Frank Benedict, have been killing ghosts all over New England. He's always thought the jobs were random until he runs into The Watchers, an elite group who's decided Shane is a threat to their own sinister plans. Their leader, Harlan Canus, sends Shane a gruesome message that can't be ignored.

Marie Lafontaine joins Shane and Frank as they descend on Borgin Keep, which is set in the lush hills of Vermont. They discover The Watchers have a few ghastly secrets of their own, hidden within the chilling castle. Emmanuel Borgin, long dead, has an uneasy alliance with Watchers. Alliance or not, Shane is determined to finish the job...even if it means destroying Harlan right along with the deadly Emmanuel!

The trio searches the hidden passages and secret rooms for Emmanuel's bones, realizing Borgin Keep is a shifting house of horrors. From the flesh-eating undead to faceless demons, Emmanuel throws his worst supernatural minions at the crew. Shane knows he's got to stop Emmanuel and Harlan or more innocents will die, suffering unspeakable torture, and agonizing deaths.

Failure is not an option, but annihilating the uncanny ghost and his grisly castle could be the last job Shane ever completes.

Shane is pushed

this book was great. we already know the ghosts of Berkley House dont like strangers but if they are coming to hurt Shame and now Frank, death is a blessing. Shane and Frank are being threatened and pushed to their limits as friends and family are threatened with death if they dont back down per The Watchers. We learn more about the group and what they want. Bordin Keep is home to a vile in life and worse in death ghost. Mr. Bordin was a sadistic man while living and thrives in death with the help of the Watchers. we learn this place is also a dumping ground of sorts for problems of the Watchers. As Shane, Frank and even Marie go in to kill the ghosts, they do so knowing they may not leave. Ever. It is a true fight to the end.

Another Great Book

I love the demon ghosts Shane kills with his team. You have the Watchers and that is intriguing. You have bonus scenes which maintain interest. As usual the story by Ron Ripleyis well described with believable characters. Shane doesn't let you down. The narration is great. You will feel the terror and suspense in this book. The narration will draw you in. I recommend this book.

Excellent story

I read the Berkley Street Series books 1 - 9 and Ron Ripley really knows how to take you down a path with a lot of unexpected twists. Thom Bowers adds even more life to the characters in the audio versions. Well done all around!.

Shocks, Jolts, and Frights...Oh My!

The characters become increasingly twisted as the series continues. I especially enjoy the evolution of Shane's personality in each book. Actually, there are no static characters. Each event leaves a mark. I am going to be sorry to read the next book (#9) since it is the last one of the Berkley tales.

Shane does it again

I don't think this book is as good as the other 7, not a bad story though. Think I'm going off Shane a bit although he can get rid of the nasty ghosts but he is acting bit like them now, must be catching. He cares nothing about anyone or anything except cigs and whisky and his atitude stinks. There is plenty of action both from the living and the dead. He sorts out the ghosts while a group called The Watches want to kill him and anyone close to him. A roller coaster ride.
