My Rating: 4 Stars
A humorous and entertaining paranormal book! I would go as far as saying it's a cosy mystery with a few ghosts in the mix. This was the first book I have read from Ms Angie Fox and the Verity Long collection but it can be read has a stand-alone. Ms Fox gives all the background information, completed with references of events that took place in the previous books.
To summarise: Verity Long is trying out her new self-appointed job as a ghost hunter, but without much success until her luck changes. Her first job comes in a form of a mansion with a few not-so-friendly ghosts inside. Accompanied by her ghost-gangster Frankie, she will find the hard way that some ghosts have some very nasty temperaments and they that they can make life very difficult even for those trying to help. Set in a mansion that wasn't been occupied in 100 years, Verity's mission is to find out why are the ghosts attached to the house and how to release them, without becoming a ghost herself in the process.
A very entertaining read! The story-line is very good and Ms Fox makes it very difficult to guess who or what is behind the whole ghost problem. The twists make it even more interesting and the humorous situations let you have a good laugh.
I really liked Frankie as a character and a ghost-companion, he is simply hilarious. His sarcasm is brilliant and bring some spice to the story. He definitely makes Verity's life more interesting specially when he tries to be funny in moments where they should be scared.
I definitely want to read the next book and I'll probably go find the previous ones, because I would like to know in more detail how Verity ended up with Frankie!
Read it, it's very worth it!
