Publisher's Summary

Why his boss at Torus Intercession chose him to figure out who may, or may not, be trying to kill Benjamin Grace, is beyond Shaw James. Protecting a paranormal investigator from whoever—or whatever—may be trying to kill him is completely out of Shaw's wheelhouse, and how is he supposed to help find an attacker when the guy he's sent to protect maintains that the threat is ghostly in origin? It's insane, and Shaw does not do insane. Benjamin Grace is going to be a problem.

But Benji is nothing at all like Shaw imagined he'd be, and the fixer is spellbound from their first meeting. Benji is kind and can laugh at himself, doesn't take things too seriously, and, more than anything, he wants to help everyone. The man is inarguably Shaw's polar opposite, and he brings out every protective instinct in Shaw.

Together, Benji and Shaw must work to figure out what's happening in the small town of Rune, Oregon, and it quickly proves more difficult than it should be to keep Benji alive. When it goes from difficult to seemingly impossible, Shaw packs Benji up and takes him back home to Chicago, where the most frightening thing is Shaw's own big, loud, loving, and overly-invested-in-his-love-life family who can't seem to resist meddling in his affairs. Or not. Turns out the scariest thing might just be Benji, the guy who seems perfect for Shaw.

Excellent continuation to the series.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every one of these stories. I waited until the audiobook came out to read this one. Tristan James is one of my favorites. Will definitely be on my re-read (or re-listen) list. Looking forward to the next story.

I waited until this story was released to audible.

I read the first book. Then started on the 2nd when I realized the series was being released on Audible. So I had pulled them in as they were being released. I had to listen to the first 3 books again before I listened to this one. I’m so glad I did so I could remember the other players with in this series. I liked Shaw story a lot. He is another that believes in getting in and out as quickly as possible. Though when he meets Benjy he is totally tripped up. I like that this one wasn’t a slow burn like the others. This one was kind of like the insta love style. How adorable was Benjy. Ghost chaser extraordinaire. Being by all means being haunted by a ghost who what’s to hurt him. Of course Shaw doesn’t believe in ghost. These two bounce off each other perfectly. The snark was great and rabble rousers were the perfect offset for this story. Constant moving. I couldn’t do anything but listen otherwise I felt I was missing something.

Good story. Good narration.

This was another sweet story in the ongoing Torus Intercession series. As with all the previous stories, the main character is not looking forward to his next job. Shaw isn't excited about ghost hunting or the rain in Oregon. Once again, all is not what it seems in the latest adventure that sends yet another Torus Intercession employee to meet their match in the romance department.

The story was fun. The characters are hard to resist. The small, rainy, Oregon town is the perfect background for a ghost story, and the narration was pleasant to listen to.

Mighty have fallen

I have been a long time fan of this author but the last few stories I have notice that she is just regurgitating the same characters over and over again. I have also noticed that the bulk of her stories are just full of her confirmation bias which is so evidently ignorant so she is using these stories as her platform. This is of course her right but as a paying reader I don’t like how this leads to poor storylines and no character development. I mean when you read/listen to a story and at the end you say “what was the purpose of that” and don’t get any real emotion from my time reading/listening I feel let down. So very sad to see this happening to a once fun and enjoyable author.

Another Favorite

I think this is replaced the first book as my favorite. It is funny, and just enough adventure to be engaging. If I could make a suggestion, I would love to hear Scott R Smith narrate another book, not to Take anything away from Tristan James who always performs spectacularly but Scott is one of my favorites.

Not worth it

I’m surprised to feel this way but this book was rough. The characters are in their 40s but they quote things from serious olden times. They reference stuff from the 50s. Really dated the author. There was no believing in one another just not even trying to believe in ghosts. Terrible, just terrible.

Sorry was interesting

But not her best work. I know I would have enjoyed it more if the narrator were better. Tristan is too monotone in his narration. I have yet to come across one of his narrations where I can actually differentiate characters easily and fully immerse myself in the story. He kinda ruined the book for me which is sad cause I was looking forward to it. Why did we decide to change narrators? He literally put me to sleep because he lacks inflection in his tone. Other narrators would’ve made this an amazing experience. If he’s on the next one I’ll have to pass

Not my favourite

I found the storyline a bit ridiculous, I wasn't all that keen on the characters either and the narrator just didn't suit this book. His characterisations were pretty bad, apart from the one main character all the others sounded really feminine.

Couldn’t finish

The two main characters the fixer and the needy desperate clingy man child who doesn’t come across as cute .as the story processed it became teeth grinding. Unable to finish
