Victoria Laurie has upped the voltage in this sequel to "What's a Ghoul to Do?" with crackling tension between planes of existence; and between the sexes. And her sense of humor sparkles in details such as magnetic armor & grenades, and Doc's inspired vocabulary. This is a fun read for everyone!
A waste of my time and money.
As this is the second title in the Ghost Hunters Mystery series, I recommend starting with book one which is titled "What's a Ghoul To Do?". This will help you better understand Dr. Steven Sable and his role in the partnership and M. J.'s life. The first book will also give you more background on all the characters including M. J.'s friend Karen who is nicknamed Teeko. If your local bookstore does not have the first book, don't worry, this can be read as a standalone.
The story revolves around M. J., her techie partner Gilley, Steven, and Teeko in their quest to help Teeko's 14 year old niece who was terrified by Hatchet Jack, a local ghost. The school principal and the local community try to deny the existence of Hatchet Jack. Of course the tapes of the incident in the school show only Teeko's niece. You'll get caught up in their search for clues in the hunt for Hatchet Jack. And you won't be able to guess the ending. I was totally absorbed in the mystery plot and the evolving and tenuous romantic relationship between M. J. and Steven.
If you like curling up on the couch with a cup of hot tea and a good mystery like me, you'll love "Demons Are a Ghoul's Best Fiend". Read it and enjoy!
There is a ghost (Hatchet Jack) scaring the students of a prep school in upstate New York, near Lake Placid. He has a history that has been hushed up for fear of scaring away prospective students. This team is given reluctant permission to do what they can in a week.
It ends up this is a detective story wrapped in a ghost story. By the middle to two-thirds through, I was wondering why they did not ask more heavy questions about the history and reluctance of the headmaster, and try to get to the bottom of the mystery. It is heavy on the ghost mystique, which I have to gloss over because, as Lucretius says, how can there be a soul without a body? What would hold it? Like a glass of water, without the glass, the water can not be any more than a puddle. But, I digress.
They do figure it all out, and it is a sad story. The only string I thought was left hanging was letting the Mom of two of the boys know about them and what happened.
