The gang's all here in the third installment of the Ghost Dusters series. Sadie can never seem to find a moment of normalcy, and in this episode, she's got her hands full once again. Dead and Kicking provides more drama, more angry ghosts, and more of the characters we've come to love.
I love this series, and was sad to hear that the publisher has decided not to continue it.
In this installment Sadie and Zack are asked by Zack's ex-girlfriend, Paula to clean out her mothers house (which should be featured on an episode of Hoarders) Sadie discovers not only a mummified baby corpse, but an angry, violent ghost as well. When Zack gets injured on the job site, nurse Paula comes running to his side and will stop at nothing to get her man back. Sadie trys deperately to help the police in figuring out a way to get rid of the ghost so they can continue their investigation. Who knew that all the secrets are lying within Paula's demented mother, who lives in a nursing home, and suffers a severe case of Alzheimers. Someone or something is out to stop Sadie from uncovering the truth, with multiple murder attempts, and a magnitude of fire and mayhem.
I really enjoy the series, and eagerly await the next installment. This book was much less complicated than the last, and I enjoyed every page. It has a good twist of paranormal, without all the vampires and wolves.

Helpful Score: 1
Really enjoyed this one in the series. I was riveted and read it in one day. There are some new characters introduced, lots of action and mystery, too. Great ending~I love when an author ties up all the loose ends.
Sadie's third appearance in the Ghost Dusters series. Sadie's dad has died and his spirit has not passed over. Her boyfriend, Zack, is being distant and her crime scene cleaning business is slow. Sadie steps into chaos when she discovers Zack has agreed to help his ex with her mom's house. The house is filled from floor to ceiling with junk and a very angry ghost. Great continuation of the series. I am sad to hear that Wendy will not be writing more. 4 stars
