Publisher's Summary

Sanford Hospital. A Victorianesque monstrosity with creeping ivy and the infamous Ward E, home of the soon-to-be-dead. This is where ghost hunter Shane Ryan ends up for his burn treatments. Courtesy of the Veterans Administration system, the ex-marine is cut off from his private doctors and thrust into the arms of a hospital with one special nurse from hell, Nurse Ruth Williamson, who is as dead as they come.

The nurse is a whole new breed of undead. She has a cadre of helpers who are loyal to the grave. Her twisted sense of mercy is death to the dying...and the living if they get in her way. And Shane Ryan is in her way.

Gathering his new friends and a few ghostly comrades, Shane takes up arms against the unholy regiment to fight the good fight. He can't allow the nurse to continue her killing spree. Her legacy of death must be stopped. Although she has a few more tricks up her sleeve, Shane's mission is clear. The nurse must die. And stay dead. Once and for all.

    "Brilliant setting!"

    Ron Ripley definitely won on the setting!! Sanford Hospital is " A Victorianesque monstrosity with creeping ivy" and it's where Shane is being sent for burn treatment following the events of the last book. It's home to more than the patients as Shane soon finds out. The infamous Ward E is home to a nurse who is only too happy to help you pass into the after life. It's up to Shane and a few of his new friends to try to get Nurse Williamson to stay dead, though this may be his toughest fight yet because it's not just the dead that are helping the Nurse, she has some fanatical living beings helping her too. Shane knows how to fight the dead, but it's the living who he needs to fear.

    Even when he is down, poor Shane doesn't get a break!! He is trying to recover from the burns he received last time and is sent to this creepy hospital with no other choice than to get the treatment he needs. He is nursing his wounds and his broken heart yet trouble still finds him there! He not only has to deal with the multitude of ghosts, but also the humans who are helping her. He really has a tough time with this one and has a lot more injuries that he will need to recover from now ;)

    As I said, the setting for this was awesome. An old hospital is creepy enough, but add in the fresh hell that is Nurse Ruth and you have an eerie, creepy place. Nurse Ruth was horrible. When she thinks your time is up, it's up. She kills indiscriminately, though she likes to think that she does it to ease their suffering. She has been doing it for decades and has a core group of both ghosts and humans who follow her. She is a force to be reckoned with!!

    In all, this edition was just as good as the rest. Shane is on the edge and I really hope he rallies both his fighting spirit and health and comes out on top. I feel like poor Shane can't handle much more without breaking!!!! Bring on the next one.

    Thom Bowers did an amazing job. He just seems to "get" these books and knows how to read it well. He is easy to listen to and I really need to check out more from him.

    I was voluntarily provided this free copy by the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

    "Nurse Ruth, killer cult leader!"

    I am loving this series more with each new book! Ron Ripley creates unique characters full of personality, and Thom Bowers brings them to life with his narration. Nurse Ruth's God complex, and her puppet-like followers, make this Veteran's hospital truly horrifying!

    "Kitty"

    This book wasn't as great as the previous ones , but still I finished it in two days. I love how you put the bonus chapters at the end to give perspective as to how it all started. Nurse Ruth was a crazy ghost ,,( not as phyco as Abel) but nothing he couldn't handle. The twist with Doc was a shock,all in all a must read in the series Also Thom Bower's was a good choice to narritate the books

    "Amazing!"

    I highly recommend the entire series. The main characters come across as very real. They have baggage, they're believable, and it makes you cheer for them that much more. It's not always easy to get attached to a character in what boils down to a ghost story, but this series nails it on the head. I'm always left wanting more. Each story in the series builds off the last and takes you a great journey. Sometimes, as with life, the journey is painful. I highly recommend the series. Once you start into it, you won't want to put the series down. if you're anything like me, you'll be desperately watching for an announcement that the next book is being released. I hope to never hear the end of Shane Ryan!

    "Great Ghost story!"
    Would you try another book from Ron Ripley and/or Thom Bowers?

    Yes, keep them coming!!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Some of the "bonus scenes" I could have done without - then were a tad on the confusing side and a little boring.


    Which character – as performed by Thom Bowers – was your favorite?

    As always, I vote for Shane - I love his character!


    Did Sanford Hospital inspire you to do anything?

    no

    "It's getting better"

    The stories are pretty compelling and the characters and dialogue have gotten better as the series has progressed. The plot lines are pretty predictable and it has some eye-roll worthy body counts throughout the series but it's an entertaining light read. Makes the commute to work more enjoyable.

    "Twisting Story Line"

    Although it was hard to keep up with the timeline once in awhile, it was so intriguing and kept me guessing on how it would end. I'm so glad I can listen on multiple devices throughout my day. Each break or driving time that came up I had to pick up where I left off!
