Review: Soul Trapper by F. J. Lennon

Soul Trapper: A Novel 


When 27 year old Kane Pryce was only 7 years old his father disappeared under mysterious circumstances. He was part of a team working on a secret project when his lab was destroyed. Now years later an old friend of his father’s has turned up and leads Kane to the discovery of the Soul Trap, the secret project his father was working on. The SoulTrap allows Kane to trap ghosts, enter the trap and set the souls free to move on to their proper place in the afterlife.

Now actively working as a soul trapper Kane runs across the soul of a little boy who has been waiting in a church for his mother’s return for over 50 years. When his investigation leads him to an elderly philanthropist in Las Vegas something is nagging at Kane and he becomes obsessed with figuring out what happened to the boy and his mother. But when the truth is revealed Kane may just be the next soul on its way to the after life.

I really enjoyed Soul Trapper. It was a quick and mesmerizing read. Its part suspense thriller, part urban fantasy and I love the mix of these two genres. Kane is not your typical hero. He drinks, he treats women bad and he is on the verge of getting thrown in jail but you can’t help but fall in love with him when he decides to help the boy. I highly recommend this read for anyone who loves suspense books and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
