Summary

Amherst, New Hampshire, is known for its lush landscapes and pastoral beauty. It's also the home of The One, a hideous little ghost boy named Samson, who's been dead for centuries and feeds off the life force of the living. His smile is as alluring as he is deadly. Now, Shane Ryan must destroy him before Samson grants the Watchers eternal life.

Shane is weary, depressed and in love with a ghost. If that's not bad enough, his depression is leading him into reckless behavior on his job. He's no longer a ghostbuster as much as a killing machine. He's obsessed with annihilating the Watchers and their properties, one ghost and one human at a time. But his personal life is on a collision course with his professional mission and his friends are worried.

When Shane finally finds Samson, the encounter is cataclysmic. With demonic glee, the lethal specter relishes the thought of killing the ghost hunter. Fueled by hate, Shane's obsession to destroy the Watchers and Samson drives him to the edge. As events spiral into a dark place, Shane realizes their end could also be his own....

Very good

Loved all 9 books, loved the story behind each one the last book did seem a little rushed compared to the other 8 but good non the less.
if you like ghost stories these books are spot on.
The characters Frank nd Karl I adored. True friends for Shane, would of liked to seen more of each and the rest of the ghosts of Berkley street in the end.

The Ghost Finale

Not as good as the first few books in the series. The hero Shane Ryan has become moody and morose. The battle with the Watchers finally comes to an end with a race between them and Shane to find the ghost named Samson who they call "The One". I found this book predictable and could guess what was coming next, I even said lines as the narrator was reading them, it is a little disappointing when you know what is going to happen next. Still it is worth a listen especially if you have listened to the other 8 books. I would like to thank the author Ron Ripley for being kind enough to provide me with this series. Overall I enjoyed them.

Excellent Story

I read the Berkley Street Series books 1 - 9 and Ron Ripley really knows how to take you down a path with a lot of unexpected twists. Thom Bowers adds even more life to the characters in the audio versions. Well done all around!.

Great Novel!

I've very much so enjoyed this entire series! I guess this is the finale. If it's ever offered as a complete collection, I will certainly purchase and enjoy it again, and most likely even more, as I won't lose track of characters.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves ghost stories, but be sure to start at the beginning of the series!

Overall a good series

I have to honestly say that after 9 books the series did not get tired or boring. It was still interesting and just as exciting as all the others before. Great series to read.
