*REVIEW* - Ghosts of Demons Past by Matt Schariti

Reviewer : Donna
Rating : 5 Stars

So words to describe this book are Fantastic, funny and totally gripping. I was totally gripped from the start of this book. Seth Gabriel is a ghost hunter. No one knows he can talk to ghosts but he has made a business out of it by getting rid of ghosts. Business is going well and because of the things he can see, he has an unhealthy relationship with alcohol. He gets hired by Courtney Reeves to get rid of a ghost in her house and Evan Gallagher hires him because he believes his wife is possessed by a demon but the problem that Seth doesn't believe in demons but Evan is offering a lot of money to help him which Seth can't refuse. You do find out a lot about Seth and his life and you go along. At first I didn't think much of Seth but as the story processes, you understand more about Seth and the things he's sees. I was really hooked on this book and I had to make myself put it down at times. There were a few funny moments. One I laughed out loud at for ages. Just an all round great book. I was so pleased I got to read and it a a bit gutted I finished it so quick. Highly recommend this book. It is so worth reading, you will not be disappointed. Loved it!

“Well, Mr. Gabriel. What do you know about…demons?”

For most people, that’s a question that never comes up. Medium Seth Gabriel isn’t most people and for him, it’s another normal day in an abnormal life.

It’s bad enough that his love life has seen better days but his personal problems are only the half of it. Seth’s ghost hunting business, SG Cleaning Services hasn’t seen a client in weeks and he’s desperate for a paycheck. Things look up when two potential clients seek him out.

Courtney Reeves hires Seth to investigate a paranormal disturbance in her home. On the surface it’s a run of the mill cleaning job but when you deal with the dead for a living, there’s no such thing as routine. The close of the case is the start of even bigger problems and Seth will find that, while there’s nothing to fear from the dead, the living are another story.

When the nervous and persistent Evan Gallagher enters his life, Seth sees the promise of a big payday. There’s only one catch. The wealthy lawyer thinks his wife is possessed by a demon. Seth doesn’t believe in demons…not anymore, but the money is too good to turn down. Is Evan crazy or is he one hundred percent sane? As Seth digs deeper, he’ll ask the same question of himself.

For a guy who’s coasted through life on not much more than Greek takeout, tequila, and attitude, Seth’s going to have to dig deep to survive what will turn out to be a very bad week.
