Publisher's Summary

Phantom PI Paul Harrison from the national best-selling Haunted Guesthouse mysteries returns with a tale of his own in a house full of ghosts, secrets, and spectacular oceanside views....
Three years ago in a large Victorian house on the Jersey Shore in the town of Harbor Haven, fledgling private investigator Paul and his client, Maxie Malone, were murdered. Since then, recent divorcée and reluctant ghost whisperer Alison Kerby and her 10-year-old daughter, Melissa, have moved in and converted the place to a guesthouse, where Maxie and Paul are now checked in for an eternity and ready to solve any case that comes their way - or at least spook the guests (who love it). Alison's got a lot on her plate at the moment, however, so when Paul discovers the 300-year-old ghost of a small boy in the house, he decides not to involve her in the case. The boy, named Eagle of the Sun, says he's searching for his missing mother. Paul's happy to help Eagle of the Sun find her, though something about the boy's story doesn't add up. But why would a lost little ghost lie?
Includes a preview of the next Haunted Guesthouse Mystery, Chance of a Ghost, available February 2013.

Audible Editor Reviews

A ghost story told from the perspective of a ghost - one who's a private investigator residing on the New Jersey shore - lends itself easily to comedy. This light and spooky mystery plays with the detective genre in a style that young adult listeners will relish. A Wild Ghost Chase is part of a series about ghost P.I. Paul Harrison and his spectral friend Maxie; the house they share with its mother and daughter owners and the ways they accommodate each other and solve mysteries together. It is the first in the series to be told from the P.I.'s perspective and James Patrick Cronin performs him as a fairly straightforward gumshoe bringing comedic elements in when he and Maxie, who's somewhat of a troublemaker, interact with the living.

Enjoyable bonus story from a brilliant series

I am a fan of the E. J. Copperman series and this short story has the same light tone, uncomplicated humour and charm of the ordinary as the novels I have read so far. Told from the point of view of a different character than usual.
