"Ghosts don't simply latch onto places, investigator. People can become haunted, too." A missing person. A city plunged into unforgiving winter. A dangerous spirit. Though enjoying an increase in business following his last case, life isn't all roses for private investigator Harlan Ulrich. His newest job, another missing person's case, is unlike any other he's ever taken on. Local businessman Michael Poole hires Ulrich to find his estranged daughter. The problem? She's been dead for a decade. Join Ulrich on a trip into the darkness, into the frostbitten underworld, as he seeks out a hateful phantom with only a cat and a thermos of good coffee on his side.

My Thoughts:

So, P.I Harlan Ulrich's business is finally taking off and his life is pretty good, and when Michael Poole approaches him and tells him that he sometime sees his daughter, who has been missing for 10 years, Ulrich thinks it's a simple case and happily takes it because Mr. Poole is willing to pay handsomely. But things aren't as they seem and Ulrich quickly realises that this isn't a simple case, someone is lying to him and things are about to get out of hand when Ulrich starts being followed by.... something. 

Harlan Ulrich has quickly grown on me! He is just such a nice character, whose reactions to events feel "real". He is scared of a lot of things, and has to talk himself into investigating anything unusual, which is what I like most about him. So often, nothing phases the protagonists, but Ulrich isn't like that!! His inner monologues are the best ;) 

This, like the other 2, isn't primarily a ghost story. It's a paranormal mystery that will keep you on the edge of your toes, and constantly guessing what's what! I love how the author is so good at making his books so atmospheric and spooky. He doesn't just tell us, he shows us and makes our imagination take over!!

Jake Urry is the perfect narrator for these books. He can bring across the creepiness so well!!! He has plenty of tones and cadences and knows how to tell the story so you get shivers at certain parts!! Brilliant narrator :) 

I received this audiobook at no-cost from Audiobookworm Promotions. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.
