Ghost trackers Amber, Drew, and Trevor travel to Exeter, the “most haunted town in America” to present at a convention as part of Exeter’s “Dead Days” celebration. Exeter is a town known for supernatural events; decades ago a horrible flood ravaged the small town, causing numerous deaths and left a path of devastation. Sightings of spirits is common in Exeter the Dark Lady, a woman adorning a black dress is the most often spotted ghost. However, as the Dead Days celebration nears, the spiritual activity has increased dramatically, starting with the brutal death of a bookseller, literally pummeled to death by the books that adorn the shelves of a supernatural bookstore.

Amber, Drew, Trevor must track down the source of the string of killings and put an end to it before more lives are lost. When the Dark Lady makes an appearance and takes control of Mitch, Amber’s abusive ex-boyfriend, the entire investigation becomes a little more personal. Aided by the most unlikely of allies-the spirit of a former team member- the Ghost Tracker team must once again rally together to put an end to the deadly supernatural activity.

The second book in the Ghost Tracker series, Ghost Town is the perfect Halloween read for someone wanting a chilling read, but nothing too terrifying. Although it is the second book in a series, there is sufficient back story to familiarize the readers with the character and their past. Younger fans of SyFy’s Ghost Hunters series will enjoy the paranormal investigations the team embarks upon.

    This one sounds like it’s on the edge of my comfort zone in terms of scary.
