Ghost-busting is never simple: just ask the Ghost Finder's of New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green's Carnacki Institute.

In a quiet London suburb, four university students are holding a séance in a house everyone knows is haunted - and, of course, it goes terribly wrong. Whatever or whoever they managed to summon has left them nothing but empty shells.

Enter the Ghost Finders, ready to confront the enraged poltergeist and battle for the students' very souls.

It's all in a day's work for the Carnacki Institute operatives - except this day is going to get very nasty indeed. What they're about to discover is that another entity had also breached the veil between worlds and crossed the threshold into ours . . . and they soon realise that it's not just four lives at stake, but all lives - humanity itself is being threatened with annihilation.

Voices From Beyond is the fifth book in New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green's Ghost Finders series.

Walking between the worlds has always been dangerous - but this time V's facing the loss of all she holds dear.Verity Fassbinder thought no boss could be worse than her perfectionist ex-boyfriend - until she grudgingly agreed to work for a psychotic fallen angel. And dealing with a career change not entirely of her own choosing is doing nothing to improve V's already fractious temper. The angel is a jealous - and violent - employer, so she's quit working for the Weyrd Council and sent her family away, for their own safety. Instead of indulging in domestic bliss, she's got to play BFFs with the angel's little spy, Joyce the kitsune assassin . . . and Joyce comes with her own murderous problems. The angel has tasked V with finding two lost treasures, which would be hard enough even without a vengeful Dusana Nadasy on her heels. And Inspector McIntyre won't stop calling: the bodies of Normal women who disappeared decades before are turning up, apparently subjected to Weyrd magics. Angelic demands or not, this isn't something she can walk away from. And the angel is getting impatient for results . . .'Slatter [has] gone from strength to strength, armed with first-class imagination and first-class storytelling skills' Jeff Vandermeer, bestselling author of the Southern Reach trilogy
