3.0 out of 5 stars Monster of the week Sept. 19 2011
By Petromagne - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was a bit more plodding than most of Simon R. Green's stuff. The ghost hunters go into an office building and basically go floor by floor fighting a new bad guy on each floor. Halfway through the book I came to the realization it's like the old monster of the week, except it's each chapter is another level another brand of monster/challenge. The confrontation that builds throughout the book ends up being rather anti-climatic, and sadly predictable.

2.0 out of 5 stars So disappointing it may taint your enjoyment of the Nightside series March 7 2012
By Pop Bop - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The cover blurb says, "As good as the Nightside...", which is completely false. I am a huge fan of the Nightside series, and greatly enjoy the characters, the dialogue, the secondary characters, the villains, and the whole noir vibe. I don't even mind the repetition within each book and from book to book, since that just ties the whole series together, and emphasizes some of the best parts.

But the Ghost Finders series is a great disappointment. The dialogue is childish and the repartee non-existent. The plot is just a level by level video game narrative. The characters are, at best, cartoonish. After a few pages I was hoping Green would get into gear and create a sort of "Torchwood" kind of team. But this never left Scooby-Do territory.

I'm going to just forget this one for a while, because I really don't want its memory to detract from my enjoyment of the remaining Nightside books. Honestly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Addition To New Series Sept. 11 2011
By Lucas Capps - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Simon Green has a talent for creating characters that are larger then life, and weaving various mythology, science, and history into wonderfully amusing tales. This book wasn't written to be on a recommended reader list of someone who enjoys high literature.

It's throughly low brow in it's own way, but that is what makes it so good. Everything he writes is so over the top, but he does it with real emotion, and a genuine flash of amazement.

For those who have read the previous book in this series, our intrepid Ghost Finders are called to deal with a sticky situation and the usual hyjinx that Simon Green always brings to his books ensures.

Let me be clear.

This is a book for someone who wants to read a great story, and not looking to read something that will alter the very landscape of their existence. For me though, this book was a welcome addition to my library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great series from Simon R Green Sept. 24 2011
By Nemo - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
While I thought the first book in this series was merely "good", this book steps it up a notch. The 4 "man" team is a study in different points of view. A super-computer tech and martial artists, A pill popping class 11 telepath, a ghost girl with powers she is unaware of, all led by a white suited man with glowing eyes and an over-abundance of energy.

They are the good guys, and they will do what is necessary to save the world, even if it means pilfering the armoury and making the hard decisions.

Once the action starts, it doesn't stop. Another quality series from Simon R Green!

I will add that while I have not read the other reviews, I know what they will complain about. There is a certain Deus ex machina quality to some of the solutions to this book. The bad guys also tend to talk and wait for the heroes to come up with a solution to destroy them when they could easily win. While this may not be realistic, (though, who are we to judge what other-dimensional beings would do?), they are still fun.

The truth of the matter is that violence in real life is scary. Getting stabbed in the back or shot from across the street is more likely to occur than having tea and scones with Auric Goldfinger and Pussy Galore. But guess which one of them I would rather read about? Try to remember, these books are written in the name of fun and entertainment. Give it a shot, what have you got to lose?

3.0 out of 5 stars Great read Sept. 27 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I love Simon Green's books. This was no different. It was fast paced and enjoyable and shows the imagination that his fans love.
Get the previous book first though if you haven't read it yet.Ghost of a Chance (A Ghost Finders Novel) Otherwise, some of the book won't make sense and will seem a little disjointed.
And if you do like this one, definitely try his Nightside series. I still re-read those books occasionally and enjoy them every time.
