Blurb: Thanksgiving can’t end too soon for Victor Bayne, who’s finding Jacob’s family hard to swallow. Luckily, he’s called back to work to track down a high-profile missing person.
Meanwhile, Jacob tries to find a home they can move into that’s not infested – with either cockroaches or ghosts. As if the house-hunting isn’t stressful enough, Vic’s new partner Bob Zigler doesn’t seem to think he can do anything right. A deceased junkie with a bone to pick leads Vic and Zig on a wild chase that ends in a basement full of horrors.
Review – Book: We start with Vic and Jacob at a family Thanksgiving where one of Jacob’s relatives has a phantom limb that screws with Vic’s head.
There is another mystery to be solved – this time it’s involving multiple missing persons and trying to track them down using ghosts who may have seen them last.
Vic has a new partner and he has some baggage that only serves to highlight Vic’s own issues, but at least he’s not out to kill him this time.
Jacob and Vic are moving their relationship forward and looking to buy a house/apartment, but finding one without roaches or ghosts is proving harder to find than either believed.
In the end they solve the mystery and find a house at the same time – so lucky!
I love how subtly Vic and Jacob move their relationship deeper. The sex is more intense and definitely a bit more hot, yet romantic at the same time.
The secondary characters (both living and dead) are a riot and the writing is impeccable as always. I miss Lisa and hope to see her again soon!
Review – Audio: Gomez Pugh is the PERFECT narrator for this series. His flat Vic and rumbly Jacob are fantastic. I love his Latin hooker voice as well as his “Chicaga” accents. “Da Bears!”
I adore the series and listening to it on audiobook is an amazing experience, definitely the best way to enjoy this wonderful work.
Overall Impression: It was amazing
