Usually more into other-world techno sci-fy, I was pleasantly surprised to find I was fully engaged and wanted more. Knowing there was more in the series a big plus. I would've been even more thrilled if the first 4 books were one...I like 'em long.
The Women in the Walls is classified as book 3 in the Spookshow series by Tim McGregor. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by the author. I have now read all three of the first three books of this series but the actual order sequence should be as follows: #1 Welcome to the Spookshow, #2, The Women in the Walls, #3, The Spookshow. Billie has accepted her gift/curse of being able to see the dead. But she has learned how to turn it off, to close them out, and tries to resume some semblance of a normal life, working nights as a bartender and zipping around town on her bicycle. Of her three friends, one of them, Kaitlin, completely believes in Billie’s ability and encourages her to use it. Kaitlin seems to have an unhealthy interest in the undead. Billie is still dealing with her crush on Police Detective Ray Mockler. She knows, though, that he is not available and that it is best she just keep her distance. Ray has been chomping at the bit to be lead investigator in one of his cases. But it is just his luck that when he finally gets his wish, its for one of the most horrific findings the city has ever seen. In an old abandoned warehouse, an interior brick wall has somehow tumbled down, revealing the skeletons of seven women hidden within. Seven women, all brutally murdered. Who are these women, how did their bodies come to be hidden within these walls, and more importantly, who killed them? The clues come to a dead end fast with no forensic evidence to go on. So Ray is forced to turn to the one person he should stay away from, Billie. We again can’t help but to care about this woman whose life just never seems to give her a break. She’s fallen for a man she can’t have, and she sees dead people. Not only that, they follow her everywhere. One lives with her in her apartment! Of course, things don’t go as she might have hoped when she tries to help. But the dead have their own way of getting what they want. John Gantry is back in the picture as well. I still haven’t figured this guy out. Is he a bad guy or a good guy? All I can say is that he always shows up when Billie needs him and helps her out. I’m not sure of the extent of his own abilities but he seems to know when Billie needs him. This book wasn’t as spooky as the first one. But it was still so good. It makes me wonder what might be wandering around my house or wherever I happen to be that I can’t see. The next time I feel an unexplained breeze or chill, I’m going to wonder at it’s origin. Could there be someone looking over my shoulder that I can’t see? I look forward to the next book in this series, Bringing up the Bodies, which is already out.
