"A sultry blonde walks into a detective's office. Big deal, seen it a million times, right? Wrong! THE GHOST DETECTIVE ranks as one of the most ingenious departures from the norm I've seen in a long time ... I've always enjoyed Scott William Carter's work, but THE GHOST DETECTIVE takes my admiration to a whole new level. I loved this book. " - David H. Hendrickson, author of Cracking the Ice
"Scott is one of those rare writers who can and does cross genres, and do it well. You never know what kind of story you'll get from him, but you do know that it'll be good." - Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Hugo award-winning author of The Disappeared
"Fans of police procedurals with a paranormal twist will enjoy this book. The style and tone of the book reminded me a bit of the original Night Stalker series, but not as graphic or violent." - Jana DeLeon, New York Times Bestselling author of Trouble in Mudbug

I've also sampled and purchased (free) first novel of different series by this author about Garrison Gage, a damaged private investigator. Looking forward to the read.
This author has had the wisdom to hire a real publisher so that means the book has been edited. Joy joy, I love editors.
You will be missing out on really good new author if you pass him by.
Move ahead five years and now Myron is a private detective, working for both the living and the dead.
This is a fun concept for this story. Myron's many interactions with ghosts add that special touch that makes this more than a detective novel. It starts out with a definite noirish vibe, with the requisite hot blonde walking into his office to hire him. But as the story progresses, its plotline deepens and the chapters alternate between past days and current times and the reader learns more about Myron and especially about his wife, Billie, and the story takes off.
There is fantastic character development, snappy dialogue, and an interesting, intelligent plotline that kept me guessing up to the last page. If you like detective stories or murder mysteries or novels about the paranormal, try "Ghost Detective."
Try out the short story sequel, too - The Haunted Breadbox (A Myron Vale Investigation).
I love the premise and the author held it up well throughout the novel. Myron was thoughtful about his situation, wondering why he could hear and smell ghosts, but not touch them. And he lives with his deceased wife, whom he loves dearly.
Plot advanced evenly, characters were well developed, but the best aspect of his novel was the dialogue. It was used to develop characters most wisely. In chapter 16 is the first really emotional scene between Myron and his wife. The dialogue had me on the edge of my emotions, tearing up, choking up. And that's not the only emotionally charged scene. There are plenty more that got my heart invested in the scene, the characters and the story.
This could make an interesting TV series, if done right!
