Dee escapes her dreary librarian job and unfaithful boyfriend by reading romance and fantasy on her Kindle. She tries The Haunted E-book, the story of a 19th century tramp printer whose ghost awakens whenever someone reads a book he created. The ghost stalks his readers and threatens them with death if they stop reading the book. Though she doesn’t usually like ghost stories, Dee can’t stop herself from reading it. Then Dee learns the stories in the books are true, the malevolent ghost is real, and Dee might be the next character to die.
Green Ghost Trappers, LLC
Your Eco-friendly Ghost Removal Service
Do you have banshees in your basement, apparitions in your attic, or revenants in your rumpus room? Does the spirit of your home’s brutally murdered former owner show up at inconvenient and embarrassing times?
Don’t call those guys with the unstable and environmentally toxic particle accelerator backpacks. They’ve been known to leave clients’ property demolished, if not entirely in flames, and that residual radiation is a major headache (possibly tumor-related).
Instead, call us – the Green Ghost Trappers. Our methods are certified organic and approved by Whole Ghost Journal. Instead of zapping your home or business with dangerous nuclear materials, we use a cruelty-free approach that combines incense, candles, crystals and Enya.
We don’t trap ghosts in painful particle streams, only to stuff them into a crowded, dirty industrial storage unit in the basement. Instead, with a combination of suggestion, cajoling and positive reinforcement, we ease your ghost into a convenient takeaway container, such as (???) crystals or an old-fashioned oil lamp.
From there, we take the ghosts to one of several designated haunted houses, where we release them like wild animals into a game park. The ghosts can haunt dim libraries full of moldering books, secret passageways, and even nice unlighted basement rooms, where they can spend eternity in the damp, cold darkness—a natural ghost habitat!
Did You Know?
Our main competitors once had their operation shut down by the Environmental Protection Agency for violating a long list of regulations and safety codes. That has never happened to Green Ghost Trappers!
So don’t call those slobby ex-professors in their coveralls. Our polite, friendly professionals are happy to remove your ghosts in a calm and efficient manner that treats both you and the ghosts with respect.
We guarantee our work won’t open the gates to Hell, thus bringing on Armageddon, or your money back! Call us today!
