Synopsis (Goodreads):
Life is more difficult than ever at Savannah's only ghost-hunting detective agency. While Ellie copes with her mentor's departure and other unwelcome developments, she also worries about the supernatural injuries keeping her boyfriend caught in an endless slumber.

At the same time, Ellie and Stacey are called in to investigate an eerie entity haunting a baby's nursery room. The ghost appears late at night, its face barely visible on the baby monitor, and sings a chilling song.

Soon, Ellie learns there are more ghosts in the house, and at least one of them is a dangerous, child-hunting monster who must be stopped before it kills again.
Thoughts on Lullaby: If J.L. Bryan's intent was to make me hate the company that's stepped in to run Calvin's business, he has succeeded. Admirably. Like, I hate those guys. No, I HATE those guys with all caps. Kara is scary and awful and the fact that the others at PSI allow her get away with it makes me lump them all together.

On the plus side, it's possible what Kara did to Ellie might give her a little extra oomph on the job. Or it might make things even harder. It's really difficult to predict at this point.

So. Things aren't peachy for Ellie and her crew. On a personal note, Ellie's dealing with her boyfriend being in a coma after the events in the last book. Not fun. On the professional side, PSI is awful and the only reason Ellie's sticking around is so she can continue to hunt down her fire-bug ghost. Ehh. Maybe that's not the only reason, but it's the most driving one.

The haunting Ellie is investigating is chilling, her desire to push herself to find out the truth about Anton Clay is kinda bordering on scary, and she's doing the best to keep her friends out of the line of fire from her personal investigations. All in all, an excellent installment in Ellie's ongoing tale.
