Publisher's Summary

Life in a post-apocalyptic city teeming with zombies isn't easy, but it can still be fun with the right friends by your side.

Book one: The Cat Who Went Bump in the Night

Eli Carter is a delivery driver who yearns for adventure. When Eli meets a smooth-talking necromancer, he decides to make a drastic career change. The delivery driver becomes a ghost hunter!

Now Eli will learn the rules of the paranormal world, master high-tech traps, and earn a permanent position on the Ghost Hackers team. Assuming he survives “play time” with the cat-like thing that's living underneath his bed.

Book two: The Ghost Who Wasn't There

Eli Carter thinks his newest ghost hunting assignment is an easy one. A simple poltergeist infestation? Easy! A slam dunk. A home run.

But when Eli is bitten on the rear by a swarm of flying piranhas, he learns there's no such thing as an easy ghost hunting assignment.

Book three: The Dog Who Barked Fire

Eli Carter loves being a paranormal specialist, ridding the city of unwanted spirits. A flurry of bookings brings the team to the suburbs, where residents are overrun with ghosts and tiny dogs. They love the tiny dogs but want the ghosts gone. The whole team must pull together, using their special skills, to get out of this suburb alive.

FAQs about Ghost Hackers:

Q. Is this series connected to Angela Pepper's Wisteria Witches?

A. No. The city featured in this series is a world away from Wisteria, and the rules of the paranormal world are wildly, wonderfully different here.

Compared to the Wisteria Witches Mysteries, these books have a few differences:

  • They are shorter and more fast-paced.
  • The stories are told by an omniscient narrator.
  • The male protagonist, Eli, is hilariously ineffective yet lovable

Q. Is there a suggested listening order?

A. The books should be heard in the order listed.

Q. Are these books funny or scary?

A. Mostly funny with a few dark moments, plus some great twists!

Funny Character Driven Supernatural Cozy Mysteries

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
This set of 3 novellas was a pleasant surprise. They are short, comedic cozy mysteries.
First, I enjoyed the characters. Each of them appear to be cookie cutter character archetypes at first but each get a chance to show that there is much more there and that they are fleshed out characters. My one complaint is that this series is complete within this volume and I wanted to spend a lot more time with each of these characters. There are a few backstories and character quirks that are set up for which we do not get full explanations. Make note of that.
The mysteries are each enjoyably bizarre, hilarious and sometimes unexpectedly touching. Again, I only wish there were more. Each story sets up the next but each mystery itself is self-contained and enjoyable.
The premise appears to be a well-known trope of but the execution is excellent and original.
The character interactions and the humor were the biggest draws for me and I anticipate relistening to this many times in the future as well as exploring other works by this author.
The narrator inhabited each character well and brought them to life. He even handled several different accents very well. I could have continued listened for much longer.

Quirky Paranormal Cozy Mysteries

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily leaving this review and all opinions expressed herein are mine.

This is the first three books in the Eli Carter and the Ghoster Hacker series. Each of the three is a standalone story with no cliffhanger endings.

This is my first time reading this author. I found these cozy mysteries to be fun, funny, out of the norm for cozies and with likeable interesting characters. I really enjoyed the quirkiness/charm of the mysteries. It was great to see Eli develop from a non-descript meek man to someone who is becoming more confident and compassionate. My one complaint is that the author left out some information [or perhaps this was intentional to be explored in later stories] about the crash site.

The narrator did a good job in setting the pace and distinguishing all the human/paranormal characters.

Quirky!

This was a different kind of listen. I thought it was comical and quirky but one definitely needs to have the right sense of humor for this listen. Eli and the gang have unique personalities and are really likeable. Love following the as Eli and the Ghost Hackers solved their 'cases' Definitely an interesting listen!

The narrator portrayed Eli perfectly, I thought he gave an excellent performance throughout all three books. He definitely took the story to the next level and really helped us visualize the characters and events throughout the story well.

If Douglas Adams had written ghost busters

The story centers around a man. A man with a chip in his head that makes it so he can’t lie, not even to himself. He’s not quite happy with his job so he takes a new one working for ghost hackers, based out of an appliance repair store/antique video game shop. He wasn’t sure if he wanted the job until he found himself living with the ghost of a cat that thought his life needed more excitement. He finds that he has an affinity for the work and really likes his coworkers. Get ready for a weird romp through the world of ghost hacking.

Fantastic Trilogy

So when I first started listening to this audiobook, I expected a book on the more serious side. However, I quickly realized that this set of three novellas is witty, charming, and sometimes downright hilarious. I love the main character and the way that he sees the world, especially his girlfriend and his day to day life.

Eli is used to being told what to do by his girlfriend so when he meets a mysterious boy named Khan one day at work, his life changes for the better. When a new job opportunity is presented to him, he makes the decision to take it and from there, we see Eli gradually shift from an awkward beaten down man to a strong, confident character.

The narration was great, and each novella was hooking in its own way. My only question about this audiobook is what exactly happened in the crash down area? It was touched on briefly, but the stories could’ve been so much richer if we had more information about what exactly had turned the humans into zombie-like creatures.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
