Ghost of a Chance

Ghost of a Chance

Meet the operatives of the Carnacki Institute.

The Institute’s operatives are the best of the best: JC Chance, team leader, is undoubtedly brave, sharp as a tack, incredibly charming – and almost unbearably arrogant. Melody Chambers may be a science geek, but she’s also the techno-wizard extraordinaire who keeps their anti-supernatural equipment running. And as for Happy Jack Palmer: their terminally gloomy telepath is the last person anyone would want navigating through their head.

Their mission: Do Something About Ghosts. That means lay them to rest, send them packing, or just kick their nasty ectoplasmic arses with extreme prejudice . . . Their current is a haunting deep underground, in London’s Oxford Circus tube station, but things become difficult when their rival team – the Crowley Project – get involved.

Ghost of a Chance is the first title in New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green’s Ghost Finders series.

Reviews

Thoroughly entertaining
Jim Butcher, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Dresden Files
This first book in Green's newest series embodies everything his fans expect in his novels: interesting characters with plenty of room for growth, lots of action laced with sharp humour and a well-honed sense of the macabre ... Green has laid a solid foundation for an engaging series with seemingly unlimited potential
Romantic Times
As good as Green's Nightside and the Secret Histories sagas
Alternative Worlds
I like these three characters. I like the dialogue and the way [Green] writes them as a dysfunctional but loyal team
Crooked Reviews
He's a clever, clever writer . . . you can see the glee just dripping off the page . . . as something to amuse yourself with on a rainy Sunday, or to cleanse your palate after something a little more serious, you can do worse. Make yourself a big bowl of popcorn, put up your feet, and go adventuring with JC, Melody and Happy. Have a little fun

Green keeps the action and laughs flowing in equal measure. Here's hoping for many more adventures of this terrific quartet
SFRevu
Skirmishes and plot twists rule as Green serves up enough blood and viscera to slake the thirst of any thriller aficionado. Readers will appreciate the camaraderie and snappy dialogue of what is sure to become Britain's favourite ghost hunters
Publishers Weekly
Plenty of witty banter and snappy dialogue . . . A lovely blend of popcorn adventure and atmospheric thriller
