"Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas."

Any additional comments?

Just before Christmas, the weather bleak and cold, investigator Harlan Ulrich is approached by a man who wants him to find his daughter, a girl who had died almost exactly ten years before but who the father is certain he has recently seen walking each evening from a cafe to an hotel before vanishing. The man seems decent and desperate, so Harlan takes the case, one he and his cat will regret.

A good ghost story, with the tension growing as it progresses, and made increasingly creepy by Jake Urry's excellent narration, reinforced by occasional gentle background sound effects. A recommended listen.

Really good ghost story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. It was a great book and while I haven't listened to any of the other books in the series, based on reviews they must be as good. I always like finding a good series to stick with and share.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Beardsly the cat. I liked Ulrich's attitude towards his cat as well as their interactions.

Which character – as performed by Jake Urry – was your favorite?

Vivian. I enjoyed his "liar" voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I have to start out by saying that I have a daughter so the story itself is awful and I would have preferred a far more intense ending. I didn't really expect the book to go the way that it did so when everything is revealed I wanted more justice. That being said the book itself was really good.

Creepy and well-written

The main character of this book was really hard up for money in the book that preceded this, so it was really cool to see him doing a job for the sake of the job in this book because he cared about the job so much, and the money was secondary.

This story had atmosphere and was moody. Ambrose Ibsen did a great job of setting the tone, and Jake Urry did an amazing job of oozing out the mood. Jake is one of my favorite narrators and I plan to stalk him on Audible until I have listened to nearly everything he has done.

If you like mysteries and ghost stories, this book is a perfect mashup. Give it a listen and you won't be sorry. I bought this book after hearing the one that came before this, and I'm hooked on this series now!
