Summary

Shane Ryan and his ghostbusting partner, Frank Benedict, have been killing ghosts all over New England. He's always thought the jobs were random until he runs into The Watchers, an elite group who's decided Shane is a threat to their own sinister plans. Their leader, Harlan Canus, sends Shane a gruesome message that can't be ignored.

Marie Lafontaine joins Shane and Frank as they descend on Borgin Keep, which is set in the lush hills of Vermont. They discover The Watchers have a few ghastly secrets of their own, hidden within the chilling castle. Emmanuel Borgin, long dead, has an uneasy alliance with Watchers. Alliance or not, Shane is determined to finish the job...even if it means destroying Harlan right along with the deadly Emmanuel!

The trio searches the hidden passages and secret rooms for Emmanuel's bones, realizing Borgin Keep is a shifting house of horrors. From the flesh-eating undead to faceless demons, Emmanuel throws his worst supernatural minions at the crew. Shane knows he's got to stop Emmanuel and Harlan or more innocents will die, suffering unspeakable torture, and agonizing deaths.

Failure is not an option, but annihilating the uncanny ghost and his grisly castle could be the last job Shane ever completes.

Shane does it again

I don't think this book is as good as the other 7, not a bad story though. Think I'm going off Shane a bit although he can get rid of the nasty ghosts but he is acting bit like them now, must be catching. He cares nothing about anyone or anything except cigs and whisky and his atitude stinks. There is plenty of action both from the living and the dead. He sorts out the ghosts while a group called The Watches want to kill him and anyone close to him. A roller coaster ride.

Another Great Book

I love the demon ghosts Shane kills with his team. You have the Watchers and that is intriguing. You have bonus scenes which maintain interest. As usual the story by Ron Ripleyis well described with believable characters. Shane doesn't let you down. The narration is great. You will feel the terror and suspense in this book. The narration will draw you in. I recommend this book.

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!.

Shocks, Jolts, and Frights...Oh My!

The characters become increasingly twisted as the series continues. I especially enjoy the evolution of Shane's personality in each book. Actually, there are no static characters. Each event leaves a mark. I am going to be sorry to read the next book (#9) since it is the last one of the Berkley tales.

Amazing!

I highly recommend the entire series. The main characters come across as very real. They have baggage, they're believable, and it makes you cheer for them that much more. It's not always easy to get attached to a character in what boils down to a ghost story, but this series nails it on the head. I'm always left wanting more. Each story in the series builds off the last and takes you a great journey. Sometimes, as with life, the journey is painful. I highly recommend the series. Once you start into it, you won't want to put the series down. if you're anything like me, you'll be desperately watching for an announcement that the next book is being released. I hope to never hear the end of Shane Ryan!

Gruesome place

I think this book in the series is the most horrific so far, and Borgin Keep is a chilling place! We find out what happens to members of The Watchers when they are no longer effective or needed, and it isn't pretty. Shane and Frank must once again do what they do best - battle the restless dead - but this time things are even more complicated by their living enemies. I was on edge a couple of times, wondering how things could possibly work out! We also see Shane sinking further into despair as his guilt and grief tear him apart. I'm worried what will happen to him...
