Once again we are treated to an amazing work of fiction by one of the best authors to grace the pages of Gay Authors.

I don't want to give away any details of this incredible story featuring Charlie Boone and the gang, but know this...this ranks among the best of them!!!

Take a gander...you'll be delighted you did so!!!

If you have read previous Charlie Boone stories what took you so long?(kidding) But if you have read past Charlie Boone stories then you already know how good this is going to be .

If you haven't read previous Charlie Boone stories with all due respect to the other reviewers who say it isn't necessary I believe you should read the first story and few other random ones first but trust me it will be a labor of love

Response from the author:

Thanks. I also happen to think readers would be better served to read at least a few of the first stories, just to get an idea of what the guys are all about!

An outstanding addition to the Charlie Boone universe.  The best yet, in my opinion.  And though reading the others would undoubtedly be an enjoyable experience for anyone, this story doesn't require that - it only encourages one to do so through encounters with some of the more memorable earlier characters.

Response from the author:

Thanks, my friend. Hard to believe there are 23 of these stories now! :)

  Though this is the 23rd story in the Charlie Boone series as in the previous episodes one doesn't have to read them first. The author give the background so one is caught up and can be involved well in the tale.

  This group of adventures have grown from young teens to young adults and the challenges have grown as well. 



Response from the author:

Thanks for the nice review. Hope you'll be back for the next tale! :)

Oh My, What else to say...  The reviews below really say it all.  I will jump in and really encourage readers to read the Charlie Boone series from the beginning. While it is not required, the series builds from the first to the last. We are able to watch the boys grow into young men and learn some of the secrets of the Booneverse during their adventures.

Geron has again outdone himself with his ability to paint a story with words. The skill used to relate places, things, feelings, emotion and general surroundings with words, while allowing the characters to interact is absolutely amazing.

This story is a bit different as the guys are out on an actual paying job for their business! We learn some new things and meet some new people and *friends*. 

Please give this author a chance and read his works, you will not be disappointed!!

Response from the author:

Why thank you, sir! :)

The Charlie Boone universe is filled with many adventures filled with magic and adventure.  This latest story is just as unique and wonderful as the others.  A haunted house is the latest challenge for Third Planet Inquiries, a company Charlie, Kippy, Rick and Adrian have set up to investigate paranormal activities.  The job is full of surprises and good humor that you will enjoy reading.  A stand alone novella, but I suggest you start from the beginning and watch the boys grow to be young men.  A must read, as are all the stories in the Boone universe.

Response from the author:

Thank you, my friend. I've watched my guys grow up with not a little bit of pride, myelf...er, myself! :)

This is another fascinating story in the Charlie Boone universe.  While this can be read as a stand-alone story, and considerable enjoyed, it is helpful to have read some of the previous stories for additional background.  That said, if you have not yet read any others, go ahead and read this one.  You will then almost certainly want to go back and read many others in the series -- as in all of them.

Every story I have read by Geron Kees has been good.  This is no exception.  Charlie and Kip meet a potential client for their business, Arno Coldat.  After hearing his story of rooms in an old mansion which will not stay renovated, they and their fellow associates at Third Planet Inquires take the case and begin work.

Strange events happen.  The more they learn, the more they are aware of what they need to learn.  The culmination is a trip to South America, in which several things are explained.  Well worth reading.  Be aware, as with all of Geron's stories, this will inspire you to think, as well as be entertained.  This story inspires more thinking than the majority of stories by Geron, and it is very well worth it.

I am always happy to hear you thinking! :)
