I found this on on the "New Books" shelf at the library.  Since it was the Halloween season, thought a ghost hunting story would be appropos.  It was a fairly fast read, but only lukewarm as far as interest goes.  I don't think I'll be reading any more in the series. At least, I won't go out of my way to find another one.

BOOK SYNOPSIS:  " Meet the operatives of the Carnacki Institute - JC Chance: the team leader, brave, charming, and almost unbearably arrogant; Melody Chambers: the science geek who keeps the antisupernatural equipment running; and Happy Jack Palmer: the terminally gloomy telepath.  Their mission:  Do Something About Ghosts.  Lay them to rest, send them packing or just kick their nasty ectoplasmic arses...

The Ghost Finders are investigating a haunting at the long-abandoned Haybarn Theatre, which is being renovated. But work has been thrown off schedule by some peculiar and unnatural activities;  And after the potentially world-changing recent events of their previous assignment, the team thinks that a haunted theatre (aren't they all ?) will be a walk in the park.

Until they encounter the Phantom of the Haybarn - an ancient evil whose ability to alter reality itself will test the skills, science, and blind luck of the Ghost Finders to the limit ."
