Re-read - enjoyed this thought I'd reviewed it.

Ghost-hunters in the Wild West. Tongue it cheek it's full of character and fun, but then there's also a story hidden behind that which Shukyou manages to deliver without bringing the mood down. Bao Yu is a total show-stealer I love her attitude.

Check out the 'author comments' for more illustrations, they're worth a look.

They were perhaps unbeatable as a team out of two men until....

This story was such a lot of FUN!!

Don't take it too seriously.

Okay, maybe a little bit!

“Will folded his arms across his chest and made as though he were trying to look stern, but a little smile kept tugging up the ends of his mouth. "I didn't know you could offend a spook so bad it'd sour your supper."

Jake rolled his eyes, but he was smiling too. "It's probably in the Bible somewhere, right next to thou shalt not suffer a dog to wear a hat.
