The Sick House- A Goodreads Review

The Sick House (The Ulrich Files #1)The Sick House by Ambrose Ibsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Sick House
This is an old fashioned haunted house tale with secrets, murders, spirits and underground tunnels. The main character, Harlan Ulrich, an aging private investigator, cares more about coffee beans than people, yet I liked him. He is flawed and quirky and just plain interesting. Needing to pay his rent, he accepts a missing person job. He’s to locate kindly Dr. Siegfried Klein, who disappeared after making a house call in the ghost town of Moonville. Well, neither the doctor nor the ghost town are quite what they seem and Ulrich is determined to get to the bottom of the mysteries despite how over-the-top spooky everything is. Ulrich was probably as scared as I would be the first time he peeked into the old place. Birds were crashing into the windows; the rain was rattling the roof and Ulrich was all alone with only the glow of his cellphone to light his path. Then something grabbed him. As a reader, my heart stopped, but you know, I kept reading. I’m going to look for the next book in the series.
