Ghosts and ghost hunters are a well-kept secret in the England presented in Banks' first novel, the start to the Dr. Ribero's Agency of the Supernatural series. Kester Lanner, our protagonist, discovers the Agency after his mother sends him to find Dr. Ribero. Lanner is quickly found out to have a special and rare gift: he can open doors into the spirit world. When the agency catches a dangerous and important mission, they insist on taking Lanner along to help. The case proves tricky as the ghost has ingrained herself into her portrait, and to remove her from the house, they must pull her out and put her in the storage container. The team interacts with a few spirits in the book, but none of the missions are scary. The story lacks the atmosphere of a truly terrifying haunting, but the mystery itself and the members of the agency are fun and compelling. This is a cozy haunting story, instead of a poltergeist-filled destination tale. -- Emily Whitmore- - Booklist
From the Back Cover
Kester Lanner didnt know what he was getting into when he followed his mothers dying request to contact the mysterious Dr. Ribero. Kester's youthful surety of the world is shaken as he learns the secrets his mother took great care to keep. Meeting Dr. Ribero reveals a side of his mother he never even guessed existed, for Ribero is his long lost father, and soon Kester is thrown into the family business: catching supernatural spirits.
A logically-minded academic type, Kester is frightened by the sudden plunge into an unknown and dangerous world. He's intrigued, despite his fears, as he reads an old diary that tells the chilling story of the portrait of a beautiful woman, which has become the home of an old and malevolent spirit. Shes a cunning spirit, and she just might be more than Dr. Riberos agency can handle.
As Kester becomes enmeshed in a struggle with a ghost so powerful and haunting, he begins to wonder if his first real case with the family business might just be his last.
