“Ghost Recall bottles the essence of impending doom that drives the most powerful noir. A haunted man walks the neon streets of a soulless town and all around walls of darkness close in like the steel teeth of a trap.

PRAISE FOR GHOST RECALL
“Ghost Recall bottles the essence of impending doom that drives the most powerful noir. A haunted man walks the neon streets of a soulless town and all around walls of darkness close in like the steel teeth of a trap. Vintage Baxter: fast, sleek, and bloody-minded.” – Laird Barron, author of Swift to Chase
“Expect collateral damage, blockbuster fight sequences and of course, some great banter between the ghosts and Eli. The previous two entries were both really fun reads, filled with emotions and creating a rollercoaster ride for the reader. This one does the same, but turns it up a notch… I always love reading Alan’s work. He inflicts everything with darkness, depth, emotions and some of the best action/fight scenes out there” – Steve Stred at Kendall Reviews
“The interplay between Carver and his latched-on ghosts is always a highlight, and possibly the best part of this novella is Baxter early on establishing a new precedent for this relationship that changes the game in a big way. It’s not too long after this that a truly shocking moment comes out of left field as an indirect result. It’s all a nice touch that goes a long way to keep this series the furthest thing from stale, even three books in. While Ghost Recall doesn’t end on a cliffhanger per se, Baxter makes it clear he’s not stopping at a trilogy. With this being the strongest entry in the series yet, I can get behind that decision. – Brennan LaFaro at Dead Headspace
“Ghost Recall is a hell of a lot of fun. Baxter keeps the action swift and furious, and the pressure high, leavened with occasional moments of dark levity. It’s the perfect blend of noir and occult horror – imagine Jason Statham leading The Frighteners if written by Laird Barron and you’re on the right track.” – Michael Patrick Hicks
“If you like your fiction short and sweet, with the back-kick of a mule laced with razorblades, then perhaps it is time to jump into the slipstream of this awesome tough guy created by Alan Baxter… The plot is top heavy with vicious action sequences, a substantial body count and Alan Baxter has a real knack of delivering unrelentingly brutal battles which would not be out of place in a Tarantino flick, or the Hong Kong Heroic Bloodshed films of the 1990s.” – Tony Jones at Ginger Nuts of Horror
