So many ghosts. Not enough graveyard shifts in a night.
When an extreme ghost plague descends, Anton and Rani must work overtime to keep the city safe. And when Anton’s long-lost aunt returns and the ghost hunters become the hunted, it’s peril galore.
Anton, Bec and Rani will need all their wits about them if they are to manage the ghost influx, work out if they can trust Tanja, and get to the truth about the malevolent presence from Elsewhere.
Full of nail-biting action, Graveyard Shift in Ghost Town is a thrilling and hilarious adventure through a spook-riddled city.
‘MASSIVELY ENTERTAINING’ — THE AGE
Extract So, you ask, how’s this gap year going? Is it actually giving me a taste of the Marin family ghost-hunting business? Or is it just introducing me to encounters that could end up with me dead?
To tell you the truth, as a wise man once said, there’s been a lot of ins, a lot of outs, and a lot of what-have-yous. So many what-have-yous.
Plenty of good, grown-up-style learning, though, about things like maintaining a healthy work/life balance. You know, making time for exercise, relationships and the day-to-day business of taking care of yourself while going out every night and battling unearthly creatures.
Is my mind made up about whether I want to follow the family heritage and make this my life’s work? Not so much.
Story Behind the Story For a writer, it’s a joy to take a bunch of characters that you’ve grown to love in one novel and then go on another adventure with them. That’s what I was able to with Graveyard Shift in Ghost Town, and I revelled in every minute of it. Of course, I had to ask myself what sort of adventure Anton, Rani and Bec would go on, and the answer came back pretty quickly – ‘one with lots of ghosts’. So that part almost took care of itself. But what became more important was the chance to explore the personal lives of these brave, dedicated and sometimes chaotic ghost hunters as they make their way in a world that is as complicated as everyone else’s, with the extra challenge of lots of ghosts. Family and friends, that’s at the heart of both Ghost Town books, when you get down to it, and being able to document their trials and their triumphs is a privilege.
