Publisher's Summary

Mankind’s greatest fear is also its greatest obsession. What awaits when we shuffle off the mortal coil of this world? We all have our beliefs based on faith or science, but both struggle to provide a tangible answer. Perhaps it is possible to prove the existence of the soul, to prove it goes on after death. 
Following the violent death of his parents, Jeff Granger seeks reassurance that they have moved on. After recording what he believes to be his mother’s voice at the site of the accident, Jeff’s obsession throws him into paranormal research. Realizing that most people are doing it just for fun, Jeff forms his own group. He is joined by Debbie Gillerson, a schoolteacher; Aaron Presley, a mortician; and Michael Pacheco, a grocery store manager. Even though they are all investigating the paranormal for very different reasons, they are all trying to fill an emptiness in their lives. The deeper they probe paranormal theory, the darker their results. 
The only way to truly test the Death Theory, as theorized by Aaron, is to monitor a person’s energy at the moment of death. Horrified by the immoral and unethical application, the group dismisses the theory. A darkness seems to follow their investigations, and the police become involved. A former colleague of Jeff’s, a self-proclaimed demonologist, believes a demonic force is attached to the group. The police are not so sure. Evil comes in many forms, as the small group is about to discover.

100% Awesome!

'Death Theory' is the best book I've listened to in quite a while. Based on the premise, for some reason, I had lower expectations. I was so pleasantly surprised that this book started out as a character driven story about people who had some interest in the potential reality of the paranormal. I was drawn in immediately because of how well Mimms wrote the characters. This tale takes an incredible turn midway that launches this character driven paranormal story into a full blown mystery/thriller and I can't say how much I enjoyed that! Very rarely does a book take me by surprise, but this one left me guessing in the most satisfying way. I was hooked from the very top to the very bottom; Joe Messina gives a fantastic performance that is very worthy of this great story. I would recommend 'Death Theory' to anyone who enjoys the paranormal genre - it's a really, really fantastic one.

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

Great listen

I completely enjoyed this book. Without giving any spoilers, I’ll just say I didn’t like the ending. Some may think it is a wild and unexpected ending, which it is, but just not to my liking.
I still gave it 5 stars because it is a great listen. I can’t wait to explore more books from this author.

You can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man.

After the death of his parents in a car crash, Jeff joins a series of groups investigating the paranormal in the hope of being able to contact them. But all disappoint so he forms his own, scientific approach, group. The story follows this little mismatch of people and their investigations - a young and nervous woman with nightmare problems, her psychiatrist, an angry young man with mother issues, an older man still grieving his dead wife, and Jeff himself. With instruments to monitor and record atmospheric changes and unheard voices, they visit haunted houses, both public and private. And something strange is certainly happening. But is it really paranormal, proof of an afterlife, or is it something else more sinister?

This is an easy to read book more character based than one of explosive situations, at least initially. At times very humerous, it certainly has it's creepy moments. And the ending is unexpected. Performed by Joe Messina, his voice fits well to the text as he reads at a brisk pace with perfect intonation and well differentiated voices. If there is any fault at all, it is that he could have left slightly longer pauses in his narration at times of scene change.

This is not a story filled with ectoplasm or ghosts coming out of the woodwork but more a thriller and a peek at some well characterized unhappy people hoping for more in life and to prove that life continues after death. It makes a pleasant change and raises some interesting ideas. I requested, and was freely gifted, a copy of Death Theory by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. So glad that I did as it was very enjoyable. Thank you for this gift.
