Alison Kerby has no trouble
remembering that her ex-husband, Steven “The Swine”
Rendell is a con-man and a good-for-nothing liar. The problem
is, she knows he does love their daughter Melissa, and the
odds are good that he didn’t really kill anyone. Yet
when her daughter returns from a week in California, spent
visiting her dad, Steven comes with Melissa and, as it turns
out, a “collection agent” is on the same plane,
with the aim of getting Steven to cough up the four hundred
thousand dollars he owes to an “investor” in one
of his latest schemes.
the collection agent, Maurice DuBois, is shot to death and
Steven is the prime suspect, Melissa is on her father’s
side. The ghosts want Alison to start an investigation. The
police want Alison to leave it to them.
Steven is guilty or not, Alison knows she has to put Melissa
first and that means using every available resource to get
to the truth. This includes her resident ghosts Maxie and
Paul, her own father (also a ghost,) and her mother, very
much in the land of the living. So what is Alison to do???
to say that I am so pleased that this series gets better and
better with each book. I can’t stop reading; I can’t
stop telling people about the fantastic book I am reading.
Then, in all honesty, when people ask if they can borrow my
copies of previous books in the series, I have to say “No.
No, just no!” I can’t risk not seeing them again,
and frankly if they go buy their own it will help the author
and the publisher. That’s a good thing, especially for
Copperman (aka Jeff Cohen), wherever you are, thank you for
this wonderful book, wonderful series and how you put me as
a reader right in the middle of the action without missing
a beat, here, and every single time you write a book!
