Publisher's Summary

Tempest Michaels does not believe in the paranormal, in fact he thinks it is all nonsense, so why does he investigate it for a living? Because he is the only professional Paranormal Investigator in the Country and business is booming. 

Following a spate of violent deaths with vampiric characteristics Tempest can ignore the case no longer. The police are getting nowhere and solving the mystery falls into his job description. This would be enough motivation, but when the alluring PC Amanda Harper, AKA PC Hotstuff, asks for his help the lonely voice from his pants demands he do all he can to solve the case, find the killer and win a one way trip to her knickers. 

Aided by his friends, encumbered by his mother ("Why are there no grandchildren, Tempest?"), advised by a clearly deluded occult book shop owner, and surrounded on all sides by beautiful women that just want to be friends, Tempest soon finds himself up to his eyeballs in wannabe vampires who want to kill him while simultaneously investigating reports of a Bigfoot terrorizing the local countryside and dealing with a pesky Poltergeist that is disturbing poor old pensioners. 

It will get worse before it gets better and all he really wants is a date with an attractive woman.

Better than Ghost Busters!

testosterone-fest, snark-fest, private-investigators, debunking, British, Dachshunds, mystery

Guilty of buying because of the cute dachshunds on the cover, the sale price didn't hurt either! You can tell that this fun book is written by a guy, so if you only want PC you won't like it as much as a lot of us do. After getting out of the army, he becomes a private investigator with a twist, specializing in debunking alleged paranormal activities that are driving ordinary people batty. Sometimes a friend or two will help out, sometimes he takes his miniweiners along on a case or to the pub. Great fun!
I got the Whispersync on sale and enjoyed Peter Fullagar narrating.

Decent mystery plot and writing

The beginning was a little rough due to the horrific start and I almost returned the book, but decided to go a bit further to make sure. Which was a good decision because the rest of the book wasn't horror, and the narration smoothed out.

The plot and writing are decent. The story is good, well-told and interesting.

However, this isn't five stars because of the very tiresome sexual objectification of women. And, for some reason, there's a lot of attention paid to the main character's penis. And, the use of a very obese woman to be a bad character. Shallow. Immature. Old and tiresome.

There are plenty of books that don't have to trash women to tell a good story, so in comparison this book just doesn't measure up.

Also, this book is listed in Audible as Comedy: Satire. There are amusing parts, but I never laughed out loud, so is it really comedy? It's not a cozy mystery, due to the horror in the beginning of the story. Maybe it's just a mystery.

The narration. I didn't like the narrator at first - he was just reading the text out loud. But, the narration improved and became more of an inner voice of the main character. The sound quality wasn't good, with a bit of an echo, and awkward long pauses between chapters - and there were other noises that could be heard at times in the background.

At this time i'm not going to continue the series. There's been a spate of books I've read lately written by men and I am getting tired of their sexual fantasies played out in their stories. I'll keep looking for something else interesting, entertaining, or funny. This wasn't it.

Poor recording and sexual objectification of woman

The sound quality is not great. You can hear background noises like sirens, deep breaths and opening doors that are not part of the story.

The story itself would be good if it were not for the constant sexual objectification of every female character. In addition to the graphic descriptions of the female characters, the main character is constantly telling us how his crotch reacts to each woman he meets. The overweight women in this book are constantly fat shamed and overly sexualized.

I will not be reading any more of these books.

Paranormal Nonsense Blue Moon Investigat

OMG! This is an amazing story and narrator!! This is the story of a man who somehow found himself starting a Paranormal Investigative Agency. He took on the cases that the police thought were crackpot reports. Tempest Danger Michaels has just gotten out of the military and looking for a spot of a career. Now he investigates all kinds of paranormal situations. He gets drawn into the case of the vampire killer. In the process he meets a female investigator, Amanda. At this point poor Tempest is enmeshed in vampires, bigfeet (?!) and a mother who wants grandchildren and will play matchmaker to the nth degree.
Peter Fullagar is exceptional in this narration. The stoic Englishman narrating a life that brings excitement and chuckles.
Fantastic story and audio!!

Excellent Story

Steve Higgs' basis for this story is that all paranormal activities are not. There are normal explanations for everything. Higgs also draws extensively on his personal knowledge of the Kent, England area where he sets his novels. If you like dachshunds, you will adore Bull & Dozer. I recommend this book highly.

Paranormal Nonsense

Our hero opened an investigation office. There was a problem with the ad as it listed his company as Blue Moon Paranormal Investigations.

The Narrator is a little monotone, but it was still a great story. Even the dogs get into the action. Highly recommend this story.

Sexiest, predictable, dull

The narrator was dull and emotionless, the production was poor (could hear sirens and page turning quite often), and the story itself was most definitely written by a man, a sexiest, fat phobic man at that.
There was no actual mystery.. There was no suspense, no intrigue, no emotional investment in any of the characters. Even the "funny" parts weren't funny. Unless you find fat women flirting funny, anyway.
Thoroughly disappointed.
