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.

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.

Haunting paranormal suspense story

This is the second book featuring coffee-addicted PI Harlan Ulrich, but it can easily be read (listened to) as a standalone. Harlan has overindulged a bit and is being evicted from his apartment, so when an old acquaintance offers him to stay in a newly refurbished, luxury apartment complex in exchange for guarding the empty place at night, Harlan is quite happy. Except, the place isn't quite as empty and deserted as expected.
I'm becoming quite a fan of Harlan now. We get to see a bit more of his kind side this time, as he becomes quite attached to a cat. His self-deprecating internal monologues are pretty funny.
Similar to 'The Sick House', the first book in the series, the plot turns into an exciting supernatural murder mystery without too much gore, but which is nicely creepy and atmospheric.
The narration was excellent again. It is apparent that Jake Urry is in his element with these menacing, suspenseful storylines. Really great listening.
I received the audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.
