Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

A Barricade in Hell by Jamie Lee Moyer

This book is set in San Francisco in 1916 time frame, shortly before the US entered WW1.   A evangelical peace protestor is involved in occult occurrences and possibly serial murders.  Super natural aspects impact the police investigation which is impacted by ghosts.

Isadora Bobet and Delia Martin return as the resident ghost busters while Captain Gabe and Lt. Jack are the law enforcement personnel of choice.   The plot includes Chinese Tongs, sorcery, demons, spies, espionage, treason, treachery and murder.  If that isn't enough there is also a feisty kitten.  

The setting is post San Francisco earthquake and that somber experience carries through the book.   The exuberance of the time period is also featured.   The author does a superb job in painting the time period.

This mystery like Delia's Shadow was well crafted with plenty of twists and turns.  I enjoyed it as much as the first book. 

I highly recommend the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
