Publisher's Summary

Their latest assignment takes JC and the team to a small country village, site of a famously haunted inn. At first, JC thinks that the spirits in the King’s Arms are more the stuff of urban legend than anything that needs the Ghost Finders’ expertise. Then one story rings true: The tale of a traveler trapped by an unusual thunderstorm who retired to her room for the night - and vanished. Trapped by an unusual thunderstorm - like the one that begins raging outside shortly after they arrive… As the team investigates, they are forced, one by one, to face some hard truths about themselves, their relationships, and the haunting itself - truths that may push Happy Jack over the edge and into the madness he has always feared...

I can't stand the new narrator.

the choice to replace the original narrator with Tim Reynolds completely changes the tone of the book. the character of JC comes across like a totally different character when portrayed by this different voice actor. I'm really upset by this the first three books for perfect and I love each and every character and they sounded like a Simon R green book. this feels forced and it feels like something that was written by someone else with the when the delivery is done in this way.

Great book poor performance

The narration seems to have changed dramatically. All the characters lost their sarcastic jovial nature to anger, serious and fighting. Even when the book says they have joyful banter, it comes across as hate and anger. It is also hard to tell character voices apart from each other at times unlike in the previous books. I really am not a fan of changing narrators, though I know it is inevitable at times. But should find somebody as close to the original one as possible.
