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 ."
