“My name is Agatha Cragton. I have been dead since the year eighteen seventy-nine.” As Agatha might tell you, being dead isn’t much fun. The hours are long, the benefits non-existent, and she regularly has to suffer the company of Trev Irwin, Brackenford’s number one estate agent, part-time demon-slayer and full-time cynic.

The hours are long, the benefits non-existent, and she regularly has to suffer the company of Trev Irwin, Brackenford’s number one estate agent, part-time demon-slayer and full-time cynic. A man with all the subtlety and sensitivity of a motorway pile-up. With friends like that, who needs exorcists? It’s perhaps no surprise, then, that Agatha’s kept the details of her life – and perhaps more importantly, her death – from Trev’s ears until now. But when they’re stuck with each other for an evening and the small talk runs short, it’s almost inevitable that the subject arises… “The Ghost’s Story” is a standalone novella set in the Brackenford Cycle universe, taking place after the events of “Hangman’s Pond”, the second book in the main series....

the ghost s story Reviews
Effing Amazing.Nick Moseley is easily in the top 5% of new writers I've read in 2017. It's 12:33 AM and I'm writing this review as I couldn't put this book down. What a blast!He perfectly captures the 'voice,' of a 19th century ghost and her dilemma. I am so impressed. Very powerful writing. Well done. Moving on to the next novel, 'Spectre's Rest,' ASAP.
This really was the perfect side story to the Brackenford Cycle books. When I began reading, I only meant to read a chapter or two before heading out before the shops closed. A completed read later and I don't have my choc chip cookie dough ice cream. Curse you, Moseley!A departure from the style of the others, this one is told in first person by Agatha, the Victorian era ghost. Up till now, she was nice secondary character who proved a foil to Trev's sarcasm and flippancy. In her own outing, she more than holds her own as she tells Trev about her life with the Custodians and her death on the job (Not a spoiler. I mean check out the name of the story. ;) ). Probably not the best thing to tell a guy who's doubtful of working for the Custodians, but to his credit, he doesn't run screaming.I really enjoyed Agatha's voice in this. Prim, yes, but there is humour in a prim manner, and her recounting of her story is precise and honest. Her interaction with Trev in the bookend chapters is lovely, as well, and it is easy to feel her frustration with him. ;)There are important Plot Points revealed here, as well, I believe, which will take the continuing story of Trev forward into the next book and beyond. A very enjoyable way to miss buying ice cream.
