Embassy of the Dead: Hangman’s Crossing

We rated this book:


Jake Green thought his hero days were over. After helping his friend move to the Underworld, the Embassy of the Dead awarded him an Undoer’s license, which means Jake can now officially help spirits move on. Along with his ghost partner, Cora, Jake is stuck with mundane cases while Elite Undoers investigate a secret case.

During a period of “not-eavesdropping,” Jake and Cora realize that a ghost pilot named Amber Chase is missing from the Embassy. But who would want to hurt a random ghost? And why? The answers might just be hidden in their newest case and the mysterious woman who worked with Amber before she disappeared.

With the Embassy being uprooted from the inside out and a new Age of Evil being threatened, will Jake find the courage to be a hero?

I really enjoyed this book! It was fast-paced, fun, and had plenty of ghosts! Jake and Cora’s banter was fun to read, and their adventures together were both heartwarming and hilarious. The story itself was an engaging and entertaining romp with plenty of humor. It never felt forced or as if it faltered in places. I would recommend this book to fans of un-put-downable, fantastical ghost stories!
