Summary

There are incidents and emergencies in the world that defy logical explanation, events that could be defined as supernatural, extraterrestrial, or simply otherworldly. Standard laws do not allow for such instances, nor are most officials or authorities trained to handle them. In recognition of these facts, one organization has been created that can. Assembled by a loose international coalition, their mission is to deal with these situations using diplomacy, guile, force, and strategy as necessary. They shield the rest of the world from their own actions, and clean up the messes left in their wake. They are our protection, our guide, our sword, and our voice, all rolled into one.

They are O.C.L.T.

In Eugene, Oregon, there is a rash of suicides. All of them by hanging. All of them in locked rooms that preclude outside interference...and all of them committed with identical antique nooses.

Captain Bill Edmonds of the Eugene Police Department is trying to figure out what could be behind the pattern, but comes up empty until the grisly phenomena hits the Internet radar of the O.C.L.T. Geoffrey Bullfinch arrives in town, hoping to track down the answers. With Bill's fiancée, Madrigal Harper, her son Skylar and his band of ghost-hunting friends, an ex-comic who once performed with John Belushi, and a cast of characters including New Jersey mobsters, book collectors, and pizza chefs, they fight to close the net on the killer before there can be more hangings. And that's just the beginning.

Super Weird!

Any additional comments?

This murder mystery/horror book starts off with a series of seeming suicides by hanging and quickly evolves into an intense hunt for the (supernatural) killer. The thing that really stood out for me in this book was the exceptionally well crated characters. The characters felt fully fleshed out and real to me immediately and David S. Dear did a great job of making them come alive. If you are a fan of mystery/horror that is off the beaten bath and totally unusual, then this is the story for you!

It's OK.

With a spate of suicides, all with locked doors and all eerily similar, can O.C.L.T. member Geoffrey Bullfinch figure out what's going on before it's too late. You know just by looking at it and reading the blurb that this will be a different read. And it was, we have a haunted noose, some goblins, some teenage ghost hunters and a few other characters thrown in, which all together made for an enjoyable listen.

This is the type of read that is a mindless read. By that I mean that I didn't have to concentrate on the story but just let it play while doing other things, and I never lost the gist of what was going on. It didn't really grip me but yet I kept listening to see what happened.

In all, an enjoyable read. Not sure if I'd read it again, but I liked it enough to finish it!

David S. Dear narrated it well. He had a lot of different tones and cadences, though his Irish accent was awful (well I presume it was meant to be Irish!!) I wanted a little more tension from him at times, but other than that his narration was good.

*I received a free copy of this by voluntarily reviewed it. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.*

Fun book

Any additional comments?

Nice story with a diverse cast. Narrator does a phenomenal job with a large cast. My only complaint is Bullfinch kind of being snubbed out of the story at the end. Nonetheless, this is a really fun listen.

The O.C.L.T. Strikes again!

Great story in a series. Think warehouse 13 meets MIB meets the occult. Great series with a great team of protagonists that combat the occult in all its many forms. Get ready for some traditional fairy tale creatures to take on a very in traditional role in a very macabre series of events that will leave you "hanging".

Spooky Fun

This book is a short fun supernatural read. The narration was great with all of the characters and goblins. Enjoyed the characters of this organization (OCLT group) of variable fun characters. Look forward more from this group. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. Thank you

The Noose Club

I enjoyed this one!Unexplained suicides are happening with old timey nooses.Most of these nooses were found when people bought old homes and the new owner could not part with them.The OCLT has some investigating to do. David S Dear was an excellent narrator.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Different.

I usually like mystery and sci fi ghost stories, however this one was a little different. I found myself struggling a bit. What I cant figure out is if it was the story or the narrator. Now he wasn’t horrible, but I did not enjoy some of his voices, they were a bit exaggerated. I battled with the story one minute waiting hopefully for it to end and the next on the edge of my seat. It was a very love hate relationship. Basically a bunch of people in a small town begin hanging themselves. Investigations begin with professionals and amateur sleuths alike they band together to go on a ghost hunt and end up finding more. On the fence with this one. Good story, meh narration. I received a free review copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Freaky story with good ending

I consider anything around 5 hours or less to be a short story. I really like this little short story. It had a very interesting freaky premise. overall was a credit spent well.

Loved it, so good

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a great, and weird, story of a group of unlikely allies hunting a supernatural killer. Part murder mystery, part x-files (or something similar). The characters are very interesting and I thought the narration was well done, too. All in all, I really enjoyed this and would love to find more in this OCLT universe.

Fun little horror romp

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

This was a fun little horror yarn. The book starts leading you down the path of another ghost story and then you find out you're not really in a ghost story at all. The characters were great and enjoyable. The story was a quick fun ride. The narration wasn't the best. Many of the voices sounded the same and it was hard to keep track of who was speaking at times. I would be interested in reading other books in the O.C.L.T. universe. I like the concept and thought it was fun. Check it out and I hope you enjoy.
