Publisher's Summary

Subject B’s terrifying ordeal continues. And this time, he may have met his match.

When Marcus Holt is kidnapped by the brilliant and sadistic Professor Worthe, the battle-hardened Vietnam veteran is forced to endure a never-ending gauntlet of terror. He thought his days of death and horror were over, but Worthe’s village promises only more of the same. And his next horrific encounter is about to begin.

There is a new test subject in Worthe’s haunted village: Subject G. A Roman Catholic priest in the outside world, this new victim’s faith and devotion are put to the test when the group is hunted by a vicious ghost called the "Butcher". Seething with anger and rage, the Butcher haunts the crumbling remains of an abandoned taxi station. She is capable of tearing flesh and shattering bones with the unnatural strength in her ghostly hands.

As Professor Worthe watches his latest experiment unfold, the vindictive wrath is set loose against the terrified subjects. Marcus possesses an iron will, and years of combat experience, but will it be enough to lead his team to survival and defeat the unholy killer stalking them from the shadows?

Fantastic continuation of the story line.

I love the way Ripley develops his characters. You come to identify with them in one way or another and it just pulls you in more.

Narration well, Bowers is the best in the business. He provides excellent auditory differentiation to the characters and always manages to strike the right tone.

I check daily for the next release. I’ll have to admit, I’m a big Ripley & Bowers fan. Thank you for countless hours of riveting entertainment. I’ve bought them all.

Best yet.

Book 3 sees Worthe adding an abandoned Taxi Station to the village, but the inhabitant is one of the most viscous. The Butcher likes to rip people, especially men, apart. Worthe isn't going to stop there though, he decides the next "subject" should be a priest. Worthe doesn't even stop there!! He torments the priest with live footage of Marcus interacting with the others. Plus the priest doesn't believe in the supernatural.

I seem to say it every time I finish a book by this other, but this one is even better than the last 2. There is so much going on, not just in the village but also with Worthe himself and with his staff. Marcus has his hands full trying to save the priest, but this ghost could be his match because it's unnaturally strong. The plot is fast paced and intense and it was impossible to put down. It isn't hard to become invested in this series and it has quickly become my favourite.

This author has never failed to deliver a well written and intense read. This series is an amazing one and one I highly recommend.

Thom Bowers performs this book brilliantly. He has an impressive array of tones and voices and always captures the atmosphere perfectly. I highly recommend you check him out.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Great Creepy Series

I absolutely love this series especially the characters and ghosts. My favorite characters are Marcus, Alex, Timmy, Joyce, Philip and Elaine. Hate Abel Worthe, Kimberley and David with the experiments they do in the village. I really felt sad about the priest who does not believe in ghosts but believes in demons. It leaves you impatiently waiting for next book. Highly recommend this series but need to start Worthe’s Village to get the full effect of the characters. I read back in January but absolutely loved listening with the great narration. Cannot wait until Soul Harvest comes on audible!

The thrills keep coming!

Yet another home-run from Ron Ripley and another great performance from Thom Bowers! I did have the giggle fits at one point because one of the new characters sounded like Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons. This story keeps getting more dire. If I had to complain about anything it is that there is just SO MUCH happening now that it feels like we don’t see enough of the new ghosts to really get to be scared of them or really any sort of emotion about them, but really this is such a small issue compared to the brilliance of the rest of what is happening that it is negligible. Now to find the next book and see what happens to our heroes!
