Publisher's Summary

The Spirits of Exeter House are Restless
Facing tough times, private investigator Harlan Ulrich takes a job looking after a historic downtown building as a favor to an old acquaintance who's out on business. Settling into the elegant Exeter House for a week-long stay, Ulrich's apartment is beautifully furnished and situated on the top floor, giving him a great view of the city. At first, he thinks it a wonderful opportunity. He's got plenty of coffee, good books to read and the whole building to himself.
At least, that's what he's been told.
It turns out there are others there, in the seemingly empty building. Dark entities that lurk in its shadowed corners.
During his first night, strange things begin to occur. As he makes his nightly rounds, ensuring that the old building is free of intruders, Ulrich finds the place transformed. By day, Exeter House is a treasured local institution. By night, it crawls with the frightening souls of the hateful dead. Tormented nightly by a number of mysterious specters, it's all the investigator can do to hold onto his sanity.
Can Harlan Ulrich tap into the building's dreadful past and quell the spirits that walk its halls, or will he lose his mind trying? Join him as he seeks answers in Medicine for the Dead, a full-length novel of supernatural terror and suspense.
Medicine for the Dead is the second book in the Ulrich Files series by Ambrose Ibsen.

Book 2

Any additional comments?

A great creepy filled book with justice and redemption. I am enjoying scaring myself with Book 1 and this book 2. I am getting addicted with this author and the narrator- he is doing a great job.

I'll Never Be A Building Manager After This!

What made the experience of listening to Medicine for the Dead the most enjoyable?

This book paid hommage to the 1st volume (The Sick House) in the narrative, which I thought was a great way to tie both books together.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ulrich of course is the ever self-doubful and somewhat unlucky PI. My heart goes out to him. He seems to have gained a lot from this latest experience, so maybe his luck truly is going to change. Book 3 may find him with more confidence perhaps?

What does Jake Urry bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Jake's tone continues to layer the text with authority. Easy to listen to at any time of the day/night.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The descriptions during the fire are the most vivid for me, and bring very clear, and horrific, scenes into minds eye. Powerful stuff.

Any additional comments?

It's taken a while to get through the book due to personal circumstances, but I've been totally engrossed all the way through. A very superb second volume to what I hope will be a large long-term collection of stories about Ulrich from the very able pen of Mr Ibsen.
