Spirits From Beyond
Ghost Finders Book 4
By Simon R. Green
Meet the ghost-busting operatives of the Carnacki Institute. Their mission: Do Something About Ghosts - which means kicking their nasty ectoplasmic arses . . . again!
The Carnacki Institute is all about ghosts - or at least, keeping them under control.
Their latest assignment sees JC and the team sent to a small country village, site of a famously haunted inn. At first, JC thinks that the spirits in the King's Arms are more the stuff of urban legend than anything that needs the Ghost Finders' expertise. But one story rings true: the tale of a traveller trapped in the inn by an unusual thunderstorm. She retired to her room for the night - and vanished.
Trapped by an unusual thunderstorm - like the one that begins raging outside shortly after they arrive . . .
As the team investigates, they are forced, one by one, to face some hard truths about themselves, their relationships and the haunting itself - truths that may push Happy Jack over the edge into the madness he has always feared . . .
Spirits from Beyond is the fourth title in New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green's Ghost Finders series.
Simon R. Green was born in Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire, where he now lives after some years in Leicester studying for his MA in Modern English and American Literature; he also studied history and has a combined Humanities degree. After years of rejections, he sold seven novels at once, just two days after he started working at Bilbo's Bookshop in Bath, after three and a half years of unemployment. The following year, he hit the Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller lists with the novelisation of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, which has sold more than 370,000 copies, and continues to sell. His bestselling novels span fantasy, space opera and horror, and include the Deathstalker, Nightside, Ghost Finders, Secret History and Hawk and Fisher series. He is currently working on a new Deathstalker novel.
