The End Street Detective Agency #6
Bob is lost in grief, Sam is fighting for his life, and there is no middle ground. Can their love survive?
Bob is grieving over his brother’s sacrifice. Guilt-ridden and devastated, he buries himself in vampire mourning and pulls away from Sam.
Magic tears Sam from the vampire castle and he has to face new adversaries alone, when all he wants is Bob at his side.
Ettore is in the Aset Ka waiting room, next in line for the ceremony for his soul to be torn from his body. Aset Ka has other plans, and Ettore finds himself reunited with a lost love and fighting alongside his brother.
A forgotten past binds Theodore ‘Teddy’ McCurray Constantine III to Ettore, and with the curse tied to Ettore broken by his death, Teddy’s past returns to him with a vengeance.
A royal family in denial, a battle between gods, and long forgotten love leaves no time for Sam and Bob to take a breath. Is it too late to save the supernatural world
The Case of the Guilty Ghost is the last in the End Street Detective Agency series. It’s a lovely paranormal world in which Sam slowly comes to terms with having magical powers and meets his mate Bob the Vampire. There is a wonderful array of creatures in this series, a gargoyle called Hal, dragon shifters, a cat familiar called Smudge and a moody ghost called Teddy. Although each story is an individual case you do need to read all the stories to follow the thread Sam’s building power and the strengthening of his relationship with Bob.
This is mainly Teddy’s story. He turns out to be Ettore (Bob’s brother) lost love who was killed by the evil younger brother. Ettore sacrifices himself for Bob at the end of book 5 and in this book the Vampire god Aset Ka sends Ettore’s soul back to carry out a task. Circumstances bring Ettore and Teddy back together but for how long? There is a lot going on in this finale, an evil brother, lovers reunited, vampire politics, kidnapping and the fulfilment of a prophecy. I liked the use of dry humour in the story to lighten the mood. A very enjoyable paranormal series with added mystery and lovely characters.
