Confusing, poorly written, dis-jointed and boring.
An American ghost hunter goes to England to help an old friend find his missing daughter although that goal gets quickly shunted aside in all the hoopla over a ghostly knight, deals with the devil and people dying with "lots of blood".
Good thing it was short because it was a waste of time.

Much darker than his Quest For The White Duck trilogy, but even more imaginative. Evidently this one is part of the Black Oak Security series, that's bad for my pocketbook because now I want more. Eerie and creepy, the publisher's blurb only hints at the goings on, and no spoilers here. If this sounds like your kind of read, you won't be disappointed!
Arthur Flavell does a really great job!

Before you read this book, PLEASE make sure you've read the other ones before it, or some of the references will not make sense to you.

I really didn't think this book was as good as the first two, but I've read online where people say it was his best. Sorry to disagree, but in this one, the action seemed a lot slower and it wasn't as fun as the previous two readingwise. I would recommend it to followers of the series, otherwise you might get a little bored waiting for something to happen.

Picked this up at a used place; there's really no indication it's #3 in a series. Still, you can follow the story without the first two. Grant is a writer I want to like a lot and always end up underwhelmed. Still, this was well-paced and a nice mix of action and mystery. I'm not going to seek out the earlier books.

This is a very nice series. Can't wait to find out who's behind the main story.

When I bought this book, there was no indication on the cover that this was 3rd in a series. Oh, well.

It was a decent ghost story: not too lame and not too scary.
