Ghost Agents follows the story of Claire Abelard, a young woman who takes an unassuming job as a cover for her real work as an agent of the Bureau for Historical Preservation that monitors paranormal activity. When ghosts start to disappear, Claire launches an investigation that uncovers a dangerous organization that threatens everything she has worked for.
The author does an incredible job developing and describing the projections, which are also known as ghosts. Each ghost had their own personality that made them likeable rather than scary. Claire’s ghost roommates are witty and charming and bring so much life to the story. The interaction between the ghosts and Claire makes the story much more intriguing; which reminds of Bob the skull in the Harry Dresden series by Jim Butcher. I wanted to hear the advice that the ghosts had for Claire, making this book hard to put down.
The author’s descriptions of the Bureau are so vivid that readers are immediately immersed in Claire’s intriguing world. Author Nita Deborde’s writing is sharp and the story flows smoothly, ensuring easy reading no matter where you stop and pick up the book again. The plot is compelling and has a nice balance of humor and romance along with a thrilling mystery at its core. I was surprised by the historical elements that color this novel and teach readers about the town of Galveston, Texas. So, expect to be entertained and educated along the way.
Ghost Agents superbly blends elements of various genre’s into a unique story that I found to be absolutely enchanting. I really enjoyed the way in which Nita Deborde combines comedic characters and historical elements into a captivating plot while making all of it seem so effortless and feel so entertaining. Readers who enjoy paranormal thrillers will find plenty to dive into in this alluring supernatural mystery.
