A high ‘Lady of the Court’, that’s what one newspaper called the large stone building that had once housed prisoners no one else wanted—the mentally and physically ill. That’s how it became known as The Duchess. It was meant to be a safe place for the patients, who were both gifted and non-gifted. But something went terribly wrong. Angry spirits attacked the living and many died within the stone walls before it was closed down.

The newest owner wants the building cleansed of the darkness. She calls in Delilah Isles and Milly West to do the job. It doesn’t take long for the two gifted women to realize that something is exceptionally Dark at The Duchess. Abuse of both the mentally and physically ill is ripe in the air and both of them see and feel the damage done to those who dwelled within the building. Abuse that was still happening to the ghosts trapped inside. The more they dig, the worse their findings get.

Their client is giving them three weeks to do the job, but they soon realize they have far less time than that. The dead and the Dark won’t leave easily, and they will stop at nothing to finish what they started in life.

***Cianna, #NerdGirlSunshine Review***
 October does it again. If you are a fan of the paranormal genre then you need to read her books! This series is among my favorite because of the investigative nature of the story. Each one builds the tension, and draws up more into the lives of our characters. These two staring ladies are so insightful and a great pair.

Mental hospitals always tend to send the creeps to anyone, it’s a reason they are such a focus for paranormal investigations. Unhappy sprits leave trails and that includes The Duchess. A long history of dark things has tainted the place, and now it’s up to Isles and West to clear it out. This is one case that I wasn’t sure the girls were going to be able to solve, but through all the edge of your seat, heart racing action, I was completely enthralled! Cannot wait to read more from this pair! Amazing book!
