The dead should stay dead...
Jack Norris has just lost his best friend—who also happened to be his band's drummer—to a drunk driving accident. As he struggles to deal with the band's uncertain future and his own personal demons, those issues become unimportant. His dead friend has come back. And he's not showing any signs of going away. Questioning his own sanity, Jack finds his life spiraling out of control. But when a new acquaintance not only hooks him up with a drummer, but promises to help get rid of his ghostly stalker, Jack's life does a one-eighty.
Drew MacLellan, the new drummer, is more than just a new set of sticks—he's the brother of the insanely hot Jen MacLellan, who's definitely not Jack's biggest fan. Jen is nothing like the women Jack's dated in the past, but the more he gets to know her, the deeper he falls. The only problem is she's got a boyfriend. Caught between his growing attraction and the desire to do the right thing, Jack does everything he can to keep his distance. But the more he sees of her, the more he realizes he can't. He's determined to win Jen's heart, if only he can figure out how to help his dead friend rest in peace...permanently.

This book introduces the two main characters of the series, but in my opinion most of their story was covered in book one and book two, both of which I read and loved.
We meet Jack the Punk Rocker with a band called Penalty Killers. Jack is a very unlikeable character through most of the book until he meets Jen MacLellan, a mortician. When Jen’s sixteen year old brother, Drew, joins the band after the death of their drummer, Eben, things in Jack’s life become very dark. Eben begins to visit Jack. With each meeting, he decays more and more leaving Jack grossed out and unsure what to do. Jen’s friend, PJ, comes to the rescue.
PJ dabbles in the occult and knows Eben has to be sent on his way, first they have to find out why he has chosen to stay earthbound. As I stated before, I have read the first two books in the series, so I am past caring about when everything began. Of course saying that, I have to admit that the descriptions of Eben and his decay, in addition to how and if they can get him to move on were interesting.
