Brain damaged?

While I wanted to know how it ended,I I was angered by all the poor choices the main characters made. From almost the very beginning they had serious doubts. It was like watching a low budget 'b' movie, where the stupid heroine, has experienced all of her many friends murdered, STILL checks out the strange noise in the dark creepy basement alone. Come on! The ladies just keep on working for the proven untrustworthy clients. Please spare me. They've learned absolutely nothing from their past cases.

Couldn't finish

I liked the book a bit, but the silly ghost character was too much. I don't mind unconventional characters, but this one didn't even ring true...even for a ghost. What's that they say about alternative realities having to be believable? I was disappointed because it's always great to find a new series or author you like.
