Publisher's Summary

Shades is part mystery and part ghost story. It's the account of paranormal investigator, Michael Grainger, set against his experiences hunting and interacting with ghosts and his difficulty connecting with the living. The tale takes place at Redthorn Hall in York, England, where Grainger has come to investigate an alleged haunting.
Masquerading as a genealogist to engender cooperation from those who might otherwise be skeptical about the very idea of ghosts or hauntings, he studies the history of the Arden family and explores the elegant manor. As he tries to contact lost souls, he reflects on his relationships, his former ghost-hunting adventures, and his studies of the paranormal. Ultimately, he solves a 150-year-old mystery and uncovers something far beyond your average, garden-variety haunting, and it very well be his downfall - or his much-needed salvation.

Shades

What did you like best about this story?

This audiobook is as much a detective story as it is a ghost story. The characters are very well developed which put me in his shoes experiencing what he experienced. And a couple of nice twists along the way kept it unpredictable to the very good ending.

Was the narrator paid by words per minute?

I probably would have enjoyed this story a great deal more ,if I had the chance to listen and digest what I was hearing. I have just finished listening and feel I should do so all over again ,to review the subtle undertones the author wanted me too. The speed of delivery of this performance left me breathless! and I can only assume the narrator had been severely frightened by a comma in early life! so my review has to be if you don't do hyperactive Americans trained in the Dick Van Dyke school of English accents read this one yourself.
