Review

Shapeshifters are the stuff of high fantasy but somehow Driver keeps things firmly in the real world. --Booklist

The fusion of mystery and urban fantasy makes CHASING GHOSTS a wonderful thriller. --Alternative-worlds.com

More About the Author

Whenever my husband is asked to describe me in one word, he usually says strange. When other kids were watching cartoons, I was watching Shock Theatre. While other young women subscribed to Cosmopolitan, I subscribed to Dr. J. Allen Hynek's UFO Reporter. X-Files, Dark Angel, Fringe, Moonlight, all the movies about things that go bump in the night are at the top of my list. So naturally a traditional mystery isn't my cup of poison. I blend mystery with fantasy, sometimes horror, and sometimes sci-fi. Chase Dagger isn't your ordinary detective. He has a shapeshifter for a partner.

My titles have been published in hard cover, paperback, large print, audio book, and most eBook formats, including for the Kindle. I also write the Sam Casey series (think Medium with a Native American twist) under my own name, S.D. Tooley. THE TUNNEL, the 7th in this series, will be released December 2013.

Although Sara and Chase are just P.I. partners, they live in Sara's house with Chase's pet scarlet macaw named Einstein who has a photographic memory.

Format: Paperback
Sara Morningsky, a shapeshifter who can turn into a wolf or a falcon, enters her home to find a dead body. Chase Dagger explains his opponent tried to kill him after asking to hire the private detective. Two of his friends get rid of the corpse, but they freak when a bomb like no other explodes inside his body.

Dagger realizes he is missing parts of his life and he makes a stealth visit his former employer who he believes is responsible. A Cardinal is making a visit and someone tries to burglarize his apartment. It is the same person who died in Sara's home. Chase recognizes a series of numbers that take him to a place that once belonged to his former employer; unaware that he will be extremely fortunate to get out alive.

The fusion of mystery and urban fantasy makes CHASING GHOSTS a wonderful thriller. Lee Driver writes fabulous paranormal whodunits that star interesting characters struggling with a world that makes no sense. There is plenty of action and unexplainable incidents for the police to investigate. However, it is Sara and Chase along with some friends who must solve the case or die in this terrific character driven tale.

Format: Paperback
Imagine Lawrence's Block's "Tanner on Ice" meets "Men in Black"--at least, that's as close as I can come to describing "Chasing Ghosts." I've been told the book is an "urban paranormal thriller," supposedly because the hero's sidekick is a shape-shifting, 19-year-old Native American who resembles Lara Croft, and it's set in the urban sprawl around southern Lake Michigan (it ends on the Nebraska high plains, though). It lacks some of the sarcastic humor of Block and some of the slapstick humor of MIB, but it's witty, and the characters are both interesting and amusing. The hero, Chase Dagger, is an amnesiac, special-forces sort of guy, who may or may not be from another time if not another planet. Minor characters include an ex-priest-in-training turned cop, and a geek named Skizzy, whom I picture as something like the MIB pawn-shop-owning space-alien whose head grows back after it's shot off; when Skizzy gawks at something above him, Driver describes his head as bending back like a Pez dispenser.

I thoroughly enjoyed every page of "Chasing Ghosts." Since I'm prone to throwing bestsellers across the room into the recycle bin when they lose me in Chapter 2, that's saying quite a bit. I do not give out 5 stars easily. Maybe I should have given it 4 stars, since I'm not very familiar with the genre. I don't know what fans of this sort of story are looking for. When I pick up a novel labeled "mystery" I expect something very different--shadowy corners, depressed killers and victims, puzzling messages, heroes with a murky past. Oh, that's right, "Chasing Ghosts" has all these. Well, I don't expect shape-shifters or the hero to have a mother whose-- No, I won't spoil it.

This was different then the others, kept trying to figure out what was going on. While reading, I felt i was part of the story, i could picture everything in my mind. Lee Driver's description's in the book were phenomenal.

This volume in the series of Chase Dagger and Sara Morningsky seems like it leans more toward science fiction than fantasy and suspense than the others, and for that reason I only give it four stars since I am really not a big fan of that type of writing. Also, the sentences seem sort of choppy, especially toward the first third to half of the book; not the usual narrative style that I have come to expect from Lee Driver. It is almost like someone else wrote it, and maybe forgot to proofread in places as here and there a word is missing. Also, I must admit I am having a bit of a hard time with the way Sara is evolving away from her sweet self; please don't turn her into a Lara Croft! But despite my criticisms, I still liked the book and the series as a whole, like the supporting characters, and recommend it (and I like the cover of the book as well!)
