Can Tom and the team “dampen the spirit”–permanently!–of a fiery phantom, or are they about to get burned?
Boy hero Tom, Hugo the Averagely Spooky Ghost, and famed ghoul hunter Hetty Hyssop have formed an agency dedicated to dealing with difficult apparitions. No spook can defeat them–until their too close encounter with a Gruesome Invincible Lightning Ghost.
This superheated specter (or “GILIG,” in ghosthunter-speak) has taken over the penthouse suite of a beachfront hotel, where it’s passing its eternal vacation by turning guests into ghosts themselves!
Maybe Hugo’s slime can douse the flaming phantom–or maybe the ghosthunters’ plan is doomed to go up in smoke. . . . Get scared silly! Download and start listening now!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles Streams | 4/5/2013

    " This book was better than the first one. It had some funnier parts taking place in a hotel and with the hotel manager. I think part of the description of some parts of this book were lost in the translation, but still a fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beka | 10/20/2012

    " A fun series about a boy, his grandmother's friend who hunts ghosts, and their not-so-scary ghost friend who helps them. Very fun and imaginative. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamra | 9/26/2012

    " My 10 year old really likes this series. The language can be a little beyond his reading level at times, but the plots have him hooked. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kirsten | 8/30/2012

    " I was disappointed with this book. It was really quite boring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eoin | 5/6/2011

    " I liked this one even better than the first. It was funny and creative. The type of ghost that was battled in this story had a lot more complications than the ghost in the first book which made for a more complex and generally better story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Merrylinn | 2/3/2011

    " What a fun book for children beginning to read chapter books. Ghosts are a fun subject, slightly scary. This book, and the series, are fun, funny, and fast-paced. "
