Something wicked this way comes…
When her aunt died, level-headed accountant Clare Cermak inherited a fortune—as well as a phantom dog and the power to help ghosts move on. Her new gift led her to Zach Slade, a sexy private investigator with a unique psychic gift of his own, and the man who’s slowly opening her heart. But as they work toward building a future together, a sinister threat emerges.

An evil ghost is ravaging Creede, Colorado, threatening to devour the spirit of an innocent boy. Inexperienced in facing such a powerful ghost—and knowing her spirit, too, could be ripped away—Clare still can't refuse to help. With Zach’s support she uncovers the ghost’s identity, and the ancestral weapon required to slay it. But does Clare dare to use that weapon before the ghost destroys the man she loves—and her own spirit?

When a young boy’s great-grandmother hires medium Clare Cermak and her partner, Zach Slade, to go to Creede, Colorado and protect the child from an evil, ghost killing spirit who eats them, they do. They have to find the true name of the spirit doing this in order to extinguish it. More than that, they both must learn to trust each other and lean toward the love they find in each other. Most of all, Clare must learn quickly how to use an ancestral bone knife, her dead aunt had left her, to kill the evil ghost. Otherwise the evil spirit may rip out her soul and devour it, killing her in the process.

Robin D. Owens wove Old West history facts and interesting characters quite well with a sexy, sometimes scary paranormal tale that soon became hard to put down. It knocked my socks off.

Review: Ghost Layer (Ghost Seer #2)

I give Ghost Killer (Ghost Seer Series) 5 sheep.

About the Author:
RITA® Award Winning novelist Robin D. Owens credits the telepathic cat with attitude in selling her first futuristic/fantasy romance, HeartMate, published in December 2001. Since then she has written thirteen books in the series, Heart Fortune the latest in August, 2011.

Her five book Luna series included average American women Summoned into another dimension to save a world. Her Mystic Circle series is a mixture of contemporary urban and romantic fantasy set in Denver.

And her newest stories, about an uptight accountant who sees Old West ghosts and helps them move on, will start with Ghost Seer in April of 2014. She is profoundly thankful to be recipient of the 2004 Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ Writer of the Year award as well as the 2011 Writer of the Year Award, the Colorado Romance Writers Lifetime Achievement Award and the 2010 Best Paranormal and Best of the Best Daphne Du Maurier Award…actually, after winning an award she tends to dance around bored cats.


  1. I gave-up on this series after book 2. The protagonist was too dimwitted for my tastes, and the on-again-off-again romance drove me bananas. The best part was by far the ghost dog, Enzo, but even he couldn't save the story. I like how the author bases each installment on a historical figure though. After reading your review, it looks like this was a case of 'it's not you, it's me.'

  2. Hey, this sounds pretty cool! It sounds like something I'd totally read! And who wouldn't want a phantom dog? No vet bills, no puppy food bills . . .;)

  3. I had the same response to the first two books in this series as Carmel. Those covers are so misleading.

  4. I am a big Robin D. Owens fan, and I do love this series. Yes, the covers are misleading, but I love the originality of the stories and the heroine. I do hope the hero gets his act together though, and embraces his own powers in this third book. I can't wait to read it!
