Haunted Hitman Eli Carver Returns with His Specters when Alan Baxter’s Ghost Recall Arrives from Grey Matter Press
CHICAGO, November 10, 2021 — Coming in December from multiple-award-winning author Alan Baxter is the third chapter of the Eli Carver Supernatural Thriller Series. Baxter’s anti-hero Eli Carver, a mob hitman haunted by his own checkered past, returns for the third installment in the author’s second fiction franchise when Ghost Recall is released on December 7, 2021, by Chicago-based independent publisher Grey Matter Press (GMP).
Laird Barron, author of Swift to Chase, says of the novella: “Ghost Recall bottles the essence of impending doom that drives the most powerful noir. Vintage Baxter: fast, sleek, and bloody-minded.”
Baxter’s Ghost Recall picks up a shortly after the shocking events of Carver’s battle with the occult end in book two, Recall Night. Ghost Recall finds life has calmed down for Eli Carver as he’s grown somewhat complacent with his new life, enjoying the high-stakes spoils of his new girlfriend’s gambling wins while the duo finds themselves living large in Las Vegas. It’s the most peaceful time he can recall. But when things go quiet for Eli, he finds trouble. Or it finds him.
Dragged into the strange machinations of a dangerous secret society, Carver is forced to confront everything he’s been trying to ignore since his last run-in with the occult and the ghosts that haunt him if he hopes to make it out the other side. And even then, nothing will ever be the same again. Eli and his ghosts find themselves battling powerful adversaries as violence and dark magic coalesce with lethal consequences.
Upon it’s December release, paperback and digital copies will be available wherever books are sold.
