Publisher's Summary

A story too secret, too terrifying - and too shockingly intimate - for Victorian eyes.

Dear Henry,

I have been Simon Feximal's companion, assistant, and chronicler for 20 years now, and during that time my Casebooks of Feximal the Ghost-Hunter have spread the reputation of this most accomplished of ghost-hunters far and wide.

You have asked me often for the tale of our first meeting, and how my association with Feximal came about. I have always declined, because it is a story too private to be truthfully recounted, and a memory too precious to be falsified. But none knows better than I that stories must be told.

So here is it, Henry, a full and accurate account of how I met Simon Feximal, which I shall leave with my solicitor to pass to you after my death.

I dare say it may not be quite what you expect.

Robert Caldwell
September 1914

    "KJ Charles is magic"

    A Gothic supernatural romance is not my usual cup of tea. But I have never been disappointed in KJ Charles so I gave it a try. And was well rewarded with a great narrator telling creepy supernatural stories set in pre-WWI England. Main character Robert Caldwell has written countless published stories of the great ghost hunter Simon Feximal, now he shares stories to his editor that give the intimate background of the two men as long time partners. Robert's compassionate (and passionate) love for a difficult man makes this more than the average m/m romance. And Simon as a man hardened by the evil he fights, is a hidden true romantic adding more emotion than expected. Edwardian Britain is well described adding a nice atmosphere to the proceedings. Gary Furlong is a narrator I haven't heard before and will now keep an eye out for because of his great performance. My dearest hope is that he will be tapped as narrator for Spectred Isle as it is set in the same supernatural world. Quite frankly I look forward to anything audible puts out for KJ Charles if it continues to be of this quality.

    "It's incredible"

    The Secret Casebook is already one of my favourite books, but the narrated version was somehow even better. Kudos to Gary Furlong for his incredible performance

    "Beautiful audio for one of the best books"

    Audio: I was worried about the audio for this book because Furlong narrates another book that I forget the title of and I hated it. I was worried that a book I love without measure would be ruined. But. No. He does an outstanding job with this story. His voice for Simon is swoonworthy, his voices are all distinct, and he does great with the accents. Fantastically well narrated.
    This is one of two Charles' books that I haven't re-read compulsively. This one because it hurts at the end, in a hopeful way, but still painful. I adore this book, and, in it's way it may be the most(?) romantic relationship she's written. Two men that find a connection that, at first, shouldn't be broken, and then, eventually, can't be broken. How many romances have two characters that bind themselves together in such a permanent way? How many people would be willing to take on what Robert does to save Simon? Yes, this is her most heart breaking and strongest character connection.

    Story
    "Worth savoring"

    it's been a long time since I've really Savor the book, really gone back to read some of the parts at the beginning before continuing on. Gary is an excellent narrator, and I actually looked him up specifically for other books that he has narrated. I look forward to reading them. The story is beautifully written, and done with loving care not only for the history, but also for the characters. very happy that there is a character who neither identifies as male or female, especially in a Victorian novel. the parallels between this book and Sherlock Holmes is unmistakable, but I'm not frustrated with it as I am sometimes we had a books. It still feels very much like an original story

    Story
    "Very enjoyable. "

    Differing from most gay romances, the story tells of the developing relationship over 20 years thru the varying cases of dealing with ghosts. The premise that most haunting are because the spirits need for their story to be told is the authors very civilized way of ghost hunting. The story rambles along even though there are dramatic happenings. Thus I found it to be a delightful listen & one I’m sure to repeat.
    PS the narrator was easy on the ears & most appropriate.

    "different but interesting"

    the story was written as a journal kind of thing - but it proved to be interesting and a great read - the narrator was believable and I was soon lost in this world
