Publisher's 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.

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.

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!

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
