Haunted by the Past (Ishmael Jones Mysteries)

We rated this book:


Ishmael Jones is human, mostly. His spacecraft crashed into an English field. The craft’s computer rewrote his DNA so he could pass as a human. He doesn’t remember anything before the crash. Now he works for the company. He is the monster who hunts monsters. He walks the dark side of the street. With his partner, Penny, he investigates mysteries. One such cast is the mysterious disappearance of Lucas Carr, a fellow company man. Carr seems to have been eaten by Glenbury Hall. It’s Ishmael’s job to persuade the haunted house to give up its ghosts.

Haunted by the Past by best-selling author Simon R. Green is the latest in the Ishmael Jones Mystery series. Even though this is part of a series, each of Green’s novels can be read as a stand-alone mystery. Green gives enough background in the prolog, and the stories don’t overlap. It’s a great read if you’ve followed Jones from the beginning or are discovering him. Even though there are similarities to past Green books, this is an all-new case with its own dark shadows. Green is a master at hiding clues and enticing readers with intrigue and mayhem. So join Space Boy and Spy Girl as they explore a house Haunted by the Past.
