Fun Southern Mystery,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Deadly Night (Ghosthunters 101 Series) (Kindle Edition)
Jimmy and Fiona Alea investigate ghosts, hauntings and other paranormal phenomena in Nashville, TN. When they, and their ghost hunting crew Nash-Vegas Paranormal, discover the brutal murder of famous country singer Candi Starr, it's traumatic but not going to derail their lives. But the death doesn't stop with just the singer. As the killer tears his way through Candi's Nashville connections, the Aleas must try to protect their friends and family, using Fiona's link to the spirit world to help stop the killer.
Side plots follow NVP's ghost investigations, which contribute to some of the creepier moments in the book, as well as the funnier ones. The image of a ghost hanging in a plantation home foyer will stay with you. Jimmy is a great narrator, mixing enough snarky comments in that you believe him as the tension rachets up. There's also a good sense of place; you can feel the humidity and hear the southern accents.
I really enjoyed this mystery. A bit Southern Gothic, a bit of rock and roll backstage, great jabs at corporate culture, some twisty serial killings and enough ghost-hunting specifics to give it a flavor of a procedural, this book is worth the read!
