This book is very much like the first in the series “Harm None” where witches were the target victims. And like the first book, there is one main plot, and we have Ben enlisting Rowan’s help in solving the crime. It was a painful read for me, not because of a bad plot, but because of the suffering, both mental and physical, that Rowan endured the whole time he was involved. (view spoiler)...more

Ugh! I give up! This author's purple prose is giving me a headache!
I was looking forward to this second book in the Rowan Gant Investigations. And it was still good. But I did not find this story as interesting as the first one. Not very in-depth. A lot of fluff and flowery descriptions around a fairly straight forward and brief main story line. Felicity's auburn mane started to go on my nerves, just slightly. And how many times can Ben Storm stroke the back of his neck to indicate deep thought processes? And we still haven't found out, why the killer in the fi...more
i think I enjoyed Harm None more, but this was still an enjoyable read. Its good to have a Pagan writing a Pagan. I agree with catsalive about the Felicity description -- OK, WE GET IT, SHE IS A HOT LITTLE IRISH NUMBER -- but I still enjoyed the story.

Just a quote I liked " ...make a note to ask Ben if there was some statistical reason known only to law enforcement as to why dead bodies seemed to turn up in the middle of the night." pg 207
This was a decent book, but somehow I expected it to be better. It may not be the fault of the writer, but more my fault for not having the proper amount of time per sitting to read it. The plot was pretty good but there were times I wanted to slap some sense into the main character. I'd still recommend this book, though, and am even working on another one in this series currently.

The second book in the Rowan Gant series, this story was both well-written and entertaining. The interactions with the spirits of the victems and the killer, kept me on the edge of my seat. And the end? You'll have to read to see! Well done.

I read this book as part of the Ghoul Squad three-in-one volume that included the first three books. I read the whole thing in just a couple of days, because I found it hard to put down.
The first one was good and kept me guessing about the killer. Thought I'd give another one a try.

*** not as good as the first one - rather disappointed****

Right now all I can say about this book is "Don't read it at night." it can and it will scare the hair off your head.
Liked it. Read it at night and I havke to admit that there were a lot of strange noises around :)
it is a very good mistery for the mistery lover. Slow start but gets better as you read.
it was a great read and the auther is a very charming man!!
Intense and delightfully creepy!

Too focused on the gruesome.
