A demon hell-bent on playing psychological games to torment its victims. A guilt-edged past comes to the fore to be relived again. Can Bolder overcome his mental suffering and destroy the voracious demon?
In the Australian ghost town of Ravenswood in North Queensland, a gruesome suicide occurs after the famous annual Halloween ball. Bolder is called in by Detective Wellock to help track the evil incarnate responsible.
However, has Zack Bolder met his match? Can a trained parapsychologist by the Church withstand the guilt-edged torments of the demon? This poltergeist dangles psychology as its weapon by tempering that frail part of the mind to those that get in its way. Bolder is taken back to relive dark secrets—ridden and guilt-edged.
Can Bolder overcome this tempest of the mind and save the town before more people take their lives?

Bolder handed him the book of prayers and marked out the section containing the love of worship. “We plan to compel the negative energy to leave her body and direct it to another place—to cross over to the other side. We are lightworkers, remember? Not exorcists.”
“I can at least bless her with holy ointment … can’t I?”
Bolder nodded and said, “Well, why don’t you start with that first?”
Father Brennan walked toward Kelly as the old rustic timber floors creaked underneath. He opened his small container with holy ointment and brushed his index finger across it. Then he gently marked her forehead with the sign of the cross.
“In the name of the father, and the son, and the holy spirit … amen.”
Kelly jolted as though something had bitten her and her body trembled for a few seconds. She was still sleeping but aware of what was going on around her.
“What was that?” said Bolder.
“What was what?”
“You mean you didn’t see it? The dark shadow that was standing beside her.”
“I didn’t see it … but I felt something gripping my hand.” Father Brennan was perplexed.
An ominous image of a woman in a faint white dress glided across the bed—motionless and stoic but holding her stomach with both hands in hurtful prose. Within seconds it was gone with barely enough time for Bolder to capture a glimpse of it.
“I sense something else in the room,” Bolder said.
A pulsating wave of energy screeched from within, penetrating the bodies of Father Brennan and Bolder. They shook from the sensation—there was no movement or breeze, and the windows to Kelly’s room shut. But it still required they hold their balance as the snappy spiritedness vibrated their eardrums with a ringing noise.
“Whatever is in here is not going to give up with prayers of love,” said Father Brennan. He was ready to launch into a full-blown exorcism.
My Rating: 4 Stars
Consider liking my review on Goodreads
I was granted complimentary access to Bolder Guilt-edged as part of my participation in a blog tour for this title with Goddess Fish Promotions. Thank you to all involved for affording me this opportunity! My thoughts are my own and my review is honest.
Zack Bolder is back with a brand new paranormal mystery to solve, and this time we’re seeing a lot more of Bolder’s private life and emotional side. I love it! In my previous review for this series (book one,) I critiqued that Bolder didn’t entrust Wellock with enough information and decision-making opportunities to make him a suitable Watson to Bolder’s Sherlock and I was concerned about how this would play out in the continuing series. I’m glad to report that the dynamic between these two is now quite solid, and the Sherlock/Watson game is strong.
Although I’ve paid close attention to new tours hitting Goddess Fish and other tour companies in the same circle, I didn’t find one for book two in between books one and three (if one was ever scheduled) and haven’t read that second book. As such, I do feel like I missed some important recent history between Bolder and Wellock as well as other familiar faces, and I do think this means the series is best read in the prescribed order without skipping as I’ve unintentionally done. The mysteries are completely self-contained, but each book reveals more and more about the characters and this (the third) book doesn’t necessarily tell you everything you need to know about Bolder because we were already told in book one.
If you love ghost hunter shows or paranormal thriller books, check out this series!
