Format: Paperback
In his crime thriller "Haunting Injustice," Mickey Mills intermingles Mystery with the Mystical, putting a team of paranormal investigators to work with a police force in untangling a series of crimes.

The stage is set with line from partway through the first chapter (which should, perhaps, have opened the book itself): "Chance McKenzie went to prison for life, which turned out to be about three months." Chance has been questionably convicted of his own wife's murder, and as "chance" would have it, ends up incarcerated with her cousin, who shanks him in the prison yard. Dead or no, Chance isn't finished insisting on his innocence.

A spooked prosecutor, though skeptical of his own eerie experiences, calls in a college friend who specializes in paranormal investigation. Some of the book's most stimulating aspects and entertaining conversations center on its various characters' experiences of the paranormal, beliefs or prejudices regarding the paranormal, and even the attempts at "translating" paranormal activity or sensitivity to skeptics. As the chief investigator says of his psychic: "He's a sensitive, a true medium, and if you don't know what that means, just relate it to that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when your ex-wife walks in the room."

I'll share up front the single characteristic of the book which I disliked, and that's the lack of contracted words in dialogue. It seems like a petty complaint, but people talk using words like "it's" and "they're" and "I'll"--and the uncontracted lines of dialogue repeatedly jolted me out of the moment as I read. Aside from this admittedly minor objection, I found this book to be a thoroughly enjoyable read--the characters engaging, the mystery intriguing, the blurred boundaries between "normal" and paranormal absorbing. All in all, it's a highly worthwhile read!

Format: Paperback
Charming Dr. Phoenix Worthy combines wit, logic and a Sherlock-Holmesian determination to solve a remarkable dual haunting in Tallahassee, Florida. What he and his team members discover is so much more than just an unhappy spirit - they're on the trail of a serial killer who poses a very real threat to the lives of the team members. Is this a case of paranormal researchers saving a lost spirit, or will the spirit save them?

Mickey Mills' cast of ghost hunters bring a much-needed freshness to standard paranormal fare. Cleverly written with touches of humor and lots of spine-tingling thrills, this book is a must-read.

"Haunting Injustice" was awesome, riveting, gripping, tantalizing and impossible to put down. It smacks of Patterson, Grisham and Sandford rolled into one and topped off with oodles of supernatural twists and turns. His characters are immediately both believable and likable. I only hope that this is merely one in a series of the same genre. I vehemently advise readers, start reading early in the evening because you won't be able to put it down and may well end up with a sleepless night. It grips you in the first chapter and never lets go. Mickey, get busy man. We're all drooling for the sequel. Hurry!

Format: Paperback
Whether you believe in ghosts or not, Mickey Mills' debut novel Haunting Injustice: A Phoenix Worthy Storywill at least leave you wondering if they truly do exist in a parallel world. Murders, lies, and evil deceptions run rampant throughout this tale of otherworldly mayhem and mystery.

From the very beginning of the story the lively cast of characters within the Phoenix Worthy paranormal investigative team were easy to warm up to and a delight to follow on their murderous ghost trail. Phoenix Worthy's assistant, the young and sassy Echo Ramirez, displayed an odd resemblance to Forensics Specialist Abby Sciuto, Pauley Perrette of NCIS fame, so you can be assured there will be many lighthearted moments from her throughout the book.

Mills' writing style is unusually descriptive for a first-time author, yet he seems to have mastered the art of tightly penning his words without going overboard in excessive use of flowery non-critical sentences. It was immediately clear that he did his research on the paranormal, too, making Haunting Injustice a most believable read, even for the unbelieving. Many of his metaphorical statements were simply "off the wall" awesome in originality, which made the story even more enjoyable.

As with many first-time authors there were areas that could have benefited from a more intense editing process. However, those errors did not detract from the absolute thrill of reading this ghostly story about Janet and Chance McKenzie and their untimely demise.

As the first book in a series of Phoenix Worthy novels, Mills did a fine job of keeping me turning pages, as well as gearing me up for his next novel, Haunting Charleston. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Haunting Injustice was a great read! I really got in to the story, and had a hard time putting the book down. Mickey has in own style of writing, vivid, fun, and eerie all at the same time!

The story is filled with plenty of terror and evil. Supernatural and real in a way that made me turn on all the lights in the house while reading. Haunting Injustice is as scary as any self respecting ghost story should be. Added to the ghosts and spirit world was enough suspense to keep me guessing way into the book...whodunit.

After the killer's identity is discovered the anxiety of what would happen to the killer's next victim kept the pace quick and the angry ghosts seeking revenge became even more frightening. The anticipation had me turning page after page way past my bedtime into the wee hours of the morning to see what would happen next.

The last page left me wanting more as all the best books do. I'm looking forward to the next in this series of ghost story combined with the best of a detective novel. The author's writing style I would compare to a John Straub / David Baldacci or Michael Crichton combination. This writer is a new master of the paranormal suspense genre done with the pure scariness a ghost story should be and on the edge of your seat tension.
