Mel & Jack are a wonderful twist to the books... they are ghosts who live in Tiff's house & she can both see & hear them.
Great plot, story lines well written w/imagination & great vocabulary. I learned many new words... I like that!
Hope Linda Welch writes more Demon stories. I will read everyone!

Ghost-seeing private detective, Tiff, and her demon lover/ business partner Royal are fully reunited after the forced separation of most of the previous book - and their detective company has been hired to find the missing heirs of a multi-millionaire, a young couple living in England.
But here's where the problems set in. Instead of the usual mutli-dimensional demon problems besetting Welch's protagonist... there's a really cheesy vision of US vs UK cultural difference. Which completely misses the mark. London 2012 has much to answer for, when it seems to have inspired carp like this!!!
Does ANYONE talk about pea-souper fogs any more????! My understanding of true 'pea soupers' and 'London smogs' was that they had literally been a product of the industrial revolution... and one which had dwindled/basically died out after coal ceased to be a major power source. So - Dickensian London, Yup. 'The Hound of the Baskervilles', OK. 'Demon on a Distant Burning Shore' - Not so much.
Indeed, the book is full of lame Brit cliches - not least surrounding the pub grub menu that horrifies Tiff, incorporating as it does a dried fruit-laden pudding whose name indicates a pimple-ridden abbreviated Richard, Toad in the Hole, and a rather derogatory word for someone homosexual that NON-pejoratively refers to a type of meatball derived from offal and served in gravy (but regardless of context gets killed by Amazon's decency filters!!!). In this respect, it's like the lamest 12 year old joke book ever. There's a smutty word. Shock! Horror! Snicker!
There are ghosts, but they're pretty tame and the mystery element is paper thin. A disappointing read with a really cliched view of English culture.
First she must adapt to a very different language. Although it’s called English, like her native tongue, she has to learn about the subtle and not so subtle differences of British and American English. Then she must familiarize with English weather patterns and English food, and if that wouldn’t be enough, there’s also another woman tempting her personal Demon friend and partner.
But this is not what the book is really about. It’s about missing people, and soon there’s death involved. As their mission evolves, they’re facing dangerous enemies, and Tiff finds her own life in danger.
I only had a few pages to feel amused about the insights of an American in Britain, then suspense took over and didn’t let me go. My only recommendation is: put enough time aside before you start reading. You won’t put the book aside.
Five stars for this great story is just so appropriate.
