Have you seen those shows about ghosthunters?This is what they wished they were.

The fastest rising A-team of the Carnacki Institute are back. Again, they are facing off against forces that are well beyond them with no briefing and almost no tools or weapons.JC is still dealing with the changes he underwent in the first novel.Melody has to try to cope without all of her beloved tech.Happy Jack Palmer is trying to deal without his chemical support.Finally Kim,JC's ghost girlfriend,is along for the ride.A medical research facility has been tampering with things best left alone and know it is up to the team to straighten it all out.

This is only the second book in the series.The characters are still growing into themselves.Their relationships with each other is only growing stronger.The story is eerie and downright spooky at times.

There was a little confusing editing.Both the American and British version of numbering a building's floors were used.So at times, the same floor was called the third floor and the second floor.I rather enjoyed the British version, since it went so well with the other British slang and idioms used.If a story is set in London, with British characters, they shouldn't be speaking "American" English.
