Medicine for the Dead: The Ulrich Files, Book 2 - Ambrose Ibsen (AUDIO)


5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
The Spirits of Exeter House are Restless

Facing tough times, private investigator Harlan Ulrich takes a job looking after a historic downtown building as a favor to an old acquaintance who's out on business. Settling into the elegant Exeter House for a week-long stay, Ulrich's apartment is beautifully furnished and situated on the top floor, giving him a great view of the city. At first, he thinks it a wonderful opportunity. He's got plenty of coffee, good books to read and the whole building to himself.

At least, that's what he's been told.

It turns out there are others there, in the seemingly empty building. Dark entities that lurk in its shadowed corners.

During his first night, strange things begin to occur. As he makes his nightly rounds, ensuring that the old building is free of intruders, Ulrich finds the place transformed. By day, Exeter House is a treasured local institution. By night, it crawls with the frightening souls of the hateful dead. Tormented nightly by a number of mysterious specters, it's all the investigator can do to hold onto his sanity.

Can Harlan Ulrich tap into the building's dreadful past and quell the spirits that walk its halls, or will he lose his mind trying? Join him as he seeks answers in Medicine for the Dead, a full-length novel of supernatural terror and suspense

MY THOUGHTS -
This story was the true definition of "gripping". This was a fantastic ghost story! It was really pretty creepy at times (not gory though, just ghostly LOL),. It did give me chills a few times.
I liked this one much better than the first one. This storyline was more developed, it flowed better, and was more fun and creepy!

The ghostliness of the book is pretty high. So if you like ghosts stories this one has a lot in it. But, it is also very suspenseful and a good mystery.

Great character development. I liked Harlan, even though he was supposed to be kind of unlikable. He is the "what-you-see-is-what-you-get" kind of guy. Loved Sparkles the cat, even if Harlan didn't take to him right away (the cat did grow on him though) I love a story with a cat in it!

There is a third book which I would love to get a copy for review, but no one I know is offering it - I may just have to buy it! GASP! I know, right?! But, I have to have it!

And... once again the Narrator - Jake Urry did a fantastic job! Flawless.

If you love a good ghost story then this one is definitely a good one to pick up!

I was so busy the day (yes, I listened to it in one day!) I listened to it, I carried it around the house with me!
