"Private investigator Buck Carlsbad's psychic abilities place him in high demand among those looking for quick solutions to supernatural problems. But for Buck, each case is only a link in the chain of a lifelong obsession: to locate the long departed spirits of his mother and father, killed in an unsolved murder when he was only a child. Then Buck gets a call from a reclusive billionaire with a very strange request, and finds himself on a bullet-fast train headed straight to hell. BLACK LIGHT is the explosive debut that combines a noir sensibility with supernatural suspense and high concept action, as Buck leads the reader through an underworld of exotic darkness and adventure"-- Provided by publisher.

This book is buy the guys who produced the last 3 Saw movies, so I was expecting a lot of gross violence. It turned out to be an interesting book about a guy named Buck Carlsbad.
He goes around and takes the evil ghosts, who just will not go away, and he pulls them in and swallows them, and then he sends them to hell in silver urns.
Many complex changes and a train trip to Las Vegas, and you have your story.
Way better than I expected, but with a lot of violence. For teens and up.
