It’s Christmastime and Detective Carella gets assigned three murders—including a bestselling author of ghost stories—and is soon after ghosts, mediums, and a crazed killer.

“McBain forces us to think twice about every character we meet…even those we thought we already knew.” —New York Times Book Review

“Imagine your favorite Law & Order cast solving fresh mysteries into infinity, with no re-runs, and you have some sense of McBain’s grand, ongoing accomplishment.” —Entertainment Weekly

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doreen | 10/15/2013

    " Not one of his best (though the Stephen King endorsement on the back should have given that away early) mystery-wise, as you can see the who and why fairly early on, but he definitely writes a ghostly scene better than the afore-mentioned King. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Cain | 10/8/2013

    " Classic McBain. I'm surprised it is not as well known as many others. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beverly | 7/21/2013

    " Dated story wherein Detective Steve Carella sees ghosts while investigating the muurder of a writer of the supernatural. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandi | 7/13/2013

    " I love these!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex Leach | 7/9/2013

    " Perhaps the best of McBain's mammoth 87th Precinct series of cop tales. He produced several dozen of them, or so it seems, from the early 1950s until his death. This one is unique as it has a supernatural bent, and the closing chapters are quite gripping. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kitty Tomlinson | 6/28/2013

    " An author who penned a bestselling ghost story is murdered. Excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gizzard | 5/7/2013

    " Standard older police procedural. Interesting, but a little far fetched for McBain. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian Law | 2/16/2013

    " All of the 87th Precinct stories are easy to consume cop stories and certainly enjoyable for what they are. Ghosts was not different, with the slight exception of being on the short side (about 200 pages) making it an even faster (though not exactly memorable) read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 12/15/2012

    " Wonderfully written. Dark and edgy and funny and literary, all at the same time. "
