ENEMIES DON’T NEED TO BE ALIVE TO BE DEADLY.
For Chess Putnam, finding herself near-fatally poisoned by a con psychic and then stopping a murderous ghost is just another day on the job. As an agent of the Church of Real Truth, Chess must expose those looking to profit from the world’s unpleasant little poltergeist problem—humans filing false claims of hauntings—all while staving off any undead who really are looking for a kill. But Chess has been extra busy these days, coping with a new “celebrity” assignment while trying on her own time to help some desperate prostitutes.
Someone’s taking out the hookers of Downside in the most gruesome way, and Chess is sure the rumors that it’s the work of a ghost are way off base. But proving herself right means walking in the path of a maniac, not to mention standing between the two men in her life just as they—along with their ruthless employers—are moving closer to a catastrophic showdown. Someone is dealing in murder, sex, and the supernatural, and once again Chess finds herself right in the crossfire.

Things I love about Downside Ghosts
So I guess that sums it up. I said that I’ll give the second book a try (since I hated the first) because Downside Ghosts is such a popular series. I really want to know why. Am I missing something here?
Ok fine, I tried the second book so that I would be fair and guess what? I still don’t like it and I couldn’t even finish it because it’s a waste of time. Don’t blame me. It’s difficult to read a book where you can’t stand the main character. Or any other character. Or the story. Or the universe.
So yep, that’s it. I’m finished with the Downside Ghosts series. So long and goodbye!
