"Ghosts don't simply latch onto places, investigator. People can become haunted, too." A missing person. A city plunged into unforgiving winter. A dangerous spirit. Though enjoying an increase in business following his last case, life isn't all roses for private investigator Harlan Ulrich. His newest job, another missing person's case, is unlike any other he's ever taken on. Local businessman Michael Poole hires Ulrich to find his estranged daughter. The problem? She's been dead for a decade. Join Ulrich on a trip into the darkness, into the frostbitten underworld, as he seeks out a hateful phantom with only a cat and a thermos of good coffee on his side.

Once upon a time, a young Ambrose Ibsen discovered a collection of ghost stories on his father's bookshelf. He was never the same again. Apart from horror fiction, he enjoys good coffee, brewed strong. Ambrose Ibsen has penned numerous horror and thriller titles, including The Ulrich Files, Transmission, The Demon-Hearted Series and the Winthrop House Series.

Jake Urry has been narrating and producing Audiobooks since February 2016, and in that time has released 17 titles, including The Cryptic Lines by Richard Storry, White is the Coldest Colour by John Nicholl, and the PI Harlan Ulrich series by Ambrose Ibsen. His narration work is often dark and suspenseful, and he developing a reputation for Mysteries, Thrillers and Horrors. In 2017 Jake will be working on more work by John Nicholl and Richard Storry, along with a sprinkling of Fantasy adventures.


I'm sort of reading this series backwards but so far it hasn't been an issue. The book Darkside Blues starts of slow and was sort of difficult to get into, but I kept trudging along and I soon couldn't put it down. I was listening to it every chance I got - on my way to work, on my lunch, making dinner, you get the picture. The further along I got into the book the more intriguing it got as well. I'm excited to go back and read books one and two. 

The Narrator, Jake Urry was phenomenal! I loved his accent and the way he was able to do the sound effects with absolutely no mistakes. He just made the story flow and it made it that much better. 

Overall, I give Darkside Blues five stars!
