The Carnacki Institute and the Crowley Project are rival organizations in the quest for the supernatural—one to save society from the evils and one to gain the power from the evil. J.C., Happy and Melody are like TVs Warehouse 13, where the Institute has all kinds of antique goodies from the bygone and not so bygone era. Their purpose in life is to investigate hauntings and the latest is taking place at London’s Oxford Circus Tube Station. Happy is the drug-popping telepath who keeps medicating himself to keep the voices out of his head. J.C. has powers even the Institute isn’t aware of. And Melody is the techno-geek. Natasha and Erik are with the Crowley Project and their job is to eliminate the competition. They all descend on the Circus Tube which has a number of weird things happening. J.C. if pretty sure someone was murdered and hasn’t quite found the “white light” while a demon has other plans. There are a number of weird things taking place and Natasha and Erik end up working with the Institute in order to conquer the beast. Natasha’s bag of tricks like chicken feet and her habit of eating ghosts are weird at best. Erik is just disgusting. These are a hodge-podge of characters, not one of them that memorable. I do like Green’s writing though (Nightside Series) so will try one more in the Chance series to see if it improves.
