From official release/information:
JC Chance can't sleep. Ever since his spectral girlfriend Kim vanished, the leader of the Carnacki Institute's best team of ghost finders cannot rest. Then he gets a message--from Kim--to meet where the team was almost killed not long ago. It's probably a trap and a lethal one at that. His team could be destroyed for real this time. What's a guy to do?
Product Description: Meet the operatives of the Carnacki Institute--JC Chance: the team leader, brave, charming, and almost unbearably arrogant; Melody Chambers: the science geek who keeps the antisupernatural equipment running; and Happy Jack Palmer: the terminally gloomy telepath. Their mission: Do Something About Ghosts. Lay them to rest, send them packing, or just kick their nasty ectoplasmic arses....
Their latest assignment takes JC and the team to a small country village, site of a famously haunted inn. At first, JC thinks that the spirits in the King's Arms are more the stuff of urban legend than anything that needs the Ghost Finders' expertise. Then one story rings true: the tale of a traveler trapped by an unusual thunderstorm who retired to her room for the night--and vanished.
Trapped by an unusual thunderstorm--like the one that begins raging outside shortly after they arrive. As the team investigates, they are forced, one by one, to face some hard truths about themselves, their relationships, and the haunting itselftruths that may push Happy Jack over the edge into the madness that he has always feared....
