Publisher's Summary

The Spirits of Exeter House are Restless
Facing tough times, private investigator Harlan Ulrich takes a job looking after a historic downtown building as a favor to an old acquaintance who's out on business. Settling into the elegant Exeter House for a week-long stay, Ulrich's apartment is beautifully furnished and situated on the top floor, giving him a great view of the city. At first, he thinks it a wonderful opportunity. He's got plenty of coffee, good books to read and the whole building to himself.
At least, that's what he's been told.
It turns out there are others there, in the seemingly empty building. Dark entities that lurk in its shadowed corners.
During his first night, strange things begin to occur. As he makes his nightly rounds, ensuring that the old building is free of intruders, Ulrich finds the place transformed. By day, Exeter House is a treasured local institution. By night, it crawls with the frightening souls of the hateful dead. Tormented nightly by a number of mysterious specters, it's all the investigator can do to hold onto his sanity.
Can Harlan Ulrich tap into the building's dreadful past and quell the spirits that walk its halls, or will he lose his mind trying? Join him as he seeks answers in Medicine for the Dead, a full-length novel of supernatural terror and suspense.
Medicine for the Dead is the second book in the Ulrich Files series by Ambrose Ibsen.

Ghosts are trying to tell you something!

Another superb ghost story by Ambrose Ibsen about PI Harlan Ulrich, who now loses his appartment due to money problems. An old acquaintance offers him to house-sit his huge building, Exeter House, for a week while he's on a business trip. Harlan moves in and gets acquainted with a cat and then things starts happining.

Ulrich still has to face his fears for the supernatural which he's the only one to believe and he has to get along with the 'creepy' cat as well. Nobody believes what he sees, so he's determined to continue solving the mystery despite that he's scared. However, he finds out that if you don't help the ghosts solving whats happened in the past, they cannot rest in peace.

Again, it's a brilliant horror-like mystery with a lots of twists of turns and you're constantly curious for what happens next. I'm awaiting the next book with exitement.

The Ulrich Files has the perfect narrator in Jake Urry and I don't even notice much where in the world this story is based and I don't care. Jake is British and does these Ohio-based novels to a 5 star rating and if someone has to pull a scottish accent, Jake is the guy. He has the perfect voice for thrillers, mysteries and horror and knows exactly how to use the right tonal voice performance in the right places of the story. As soon as Jake starts a horror story, I get the chills!

Ibsen and Urry do it Again!

Any additional comments?

Ambrose Ibsen and Jake Urry might be my favorite supernatural-thriller duo as author and narrator! 'Medicine for the Dead,' book 2 of The Ulrich Files series, delivers a knuckle biting ghost story that won't be soon forgotten. I absolutely can't wait for book 3 of this series!! I would recommend this audio book to any of my friends who enjoy a good ghost story. Ibsen is a master of this kind of tale and Urry's narration expertly brings the characters to life in a way that kept me on my toes throughout.

Book 2

Any additional comments?

A great creepy filled book with justice and redemption. I am enjoying scaring myself with Book 1 and this book 2. I am getting addicted with this author and the narrator- he is doing a great job.

I'll Never Be A Building Manager After This!

What made the experience of listening to Medicine for the Dead the most enjoyable?

This book paid hommage to the 1st volume (The Sick House) in the narrative, which I thought was a great way to tie both books together.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ulrich of course is the ever self-doubful and somewhat unlucky PI. My heart goes out to him. He seems to have gained a lot from this latest experience, so maybe his luck truly is going to change. Book 3 may find him with more confidence perhaps?

What does Jake Urry bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Jake's tone continues to layer the text with authority. Easy to listen to at any time of the day/night.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The descriptions during the fire are the most vivid for me, and bring very clear, and horrific, scenes into minds eye. Powerful stuff.

Any additional comments?

It's taken a while to get through the book due to personal circumstances, but I've been totally engrossed all the way through. A very superb second volume to what I hope will be a large long-term collection of stories about Ulrich from the very able pen of Mr Ibsen.
