Ghost of Deceit (Medium Trouble #3) by Alice Winters

The Medium Trouble series returns in Ghost of Deceit. Hiro has to learn who his true allies are. 

From the blurb:


Seeing the dead has never been easy, but the last thing I expected was to be a pawn in a serial killer’s game.

Moving in with Maddox was supposed to be the only thing we needed to worry about. Not a dead teacher, and not the fact that a serial killer knows my abilities. Following the trail left behind leaves us racing against time to figure out how to stop the murders before the final victim falls. Thankfully, I’m not alone. Maddox and my wonderful team of unusual ghosts are there to make sure that we don’t end up players in this twisted game.


Nothing is drawn to Hiro like danger and ghosts, and this time, he’s managed to find himself tangled in both. Suddenly I find myself caught between protecting Hiro and saving the lives of those who are next on a deadly list. The killer’s mistake is that he doesn’t realize just how far Hiro and I will go, and that we’re going to end this game before the final pawn falls.

Jacquie's Review:

Ghost of Deceit was a page turner for sure! I'm left kind of struggling to know what to say without giving out spoilers.

This series is fantastic, I've thoroughly enjoyed each book so far. Deceit kept me guessing as to what was going to happen. It was difficult to put down.

Hiro is really coming into his abilities and this one had less of the humour and steam than the others, understandably so. It was more emotional, though. One scene nearly wrecked me. When you get there, you'll know. Wow!

I feel like puzzle pieces are coming together about the people in Hiro's life and I'm already looking forward to the next one.

Janet's Review:

Sooo freakin good!! Ghost of Deceit is the third story in the Medium Trouble series. Hiro and Maddox are back along with Reggie, Natalie and Keaton. 

Hiro always seems to get himself into some sort of ghost trouble and this one seemed a little darker than the first two in the series. 

The investigation into a serial killer goes awry when Hiro has to play a game. There are twists and turns that left me second guessing what was coming next. 

Overall, a fantastic story!! Well written with pacing that just flowed and hooked me, sucked me right in! Highly recommend.
