Voices from Beyond

Simon Green. Ace, $7.99 mass market (304p) ISBN 978-0-425-25994-8

Seemingly unrelated back-to-back incidents have paranormal investigators hopping in Green’s fifth Ghost Finders novel (after Spirits from Beyond). JC Chance, Melody Chambers, and Happy Jack Palmer are called to a room where four university students sit in a state of suspended animation, seated around a Ouija board. Adrian Volke, their psychology professor, insists he’s conducted similar psychological “experiments” before, with benign results. This time, though, Melody is certain they are facing diabolical forces from the Outer Reaches. Then Carnacki Institute field team leader Catherine Latimer dispatches the team to a small radio station where everybody’s hearing voices. Grisly visions of team members being grotesquely murdered heighten the sense of danger. Green comes through with more than enough gore, wit, and mild suspense to satisfy series fans. (Sept.)
