Summary

Paranormal investigator Ellie Jordan faces a new case in an apartment building where a twisted, dangerous entity emerges from closets and doorways to terrorize the residents at night. A powerful spirit, it feeds on fear and takes the shape of its victims' worst nightmares. Ellie and her mentor, Calvin, have tried to capture the same entity before, in a different house nearby, an attempt that ended in disaster. Now, with the help of her apprentice, Stacey, Ellie must try again to capture the elusive shape-shifting ghost before it can claim another soul as its own.

Another great cozy ghost mystery!

This book was as enjoyable as the previous books. Ellie and Stacy are working even better together, and there could be the possibility of a love interest for Ellie. Ellie’s boss and mentor make a big decision. Of course, there were ghosts. Who was the bad or good ghost was a tricky one this time, I missed the clues and was surprised.

Excellent!!!

I have no idea why I insist on listening to these books after dark. I guess because once I start I can't stop listening. I love this series. J.L. Bryan has a talent for creating a scene that sends chills down your spine and keeps you coming back for more. This is a great series and I look forward to the next book.

Good Ghost Trapper

I found this a good story with a twist I did not see coming. I really enjoy the characters, the seriousness of the main character, and the glibness of her assistant. I like that they dig into history to locate the right person/ghost causing the problems.

This is my favorite! Really creepy!

The Crawling Darkness
Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper Series #3
By: J. L. Bryan
Narrated by: Carla Mercer-Meyer
This book gets really gets creepy! I thought the others were bad, this takes scary a step further! I like a good ghost story that has a touch of humor, great characters, characters searching the history of the case, clues, a good scare, and of course some interesting ghosts! This series has all of this!
This series also has a great narrator! Great job!

Intelligent mix of mystery and horror

A well written mix of mystery and horror showing how innocents need champions to protect them. the narration was excellent with the right touch of sadness.
