Relieved to let the police take charge, Verity steps aside, bound and determined to keep her ghost sightings to herself. But when she learns the main suspect in the murder is a very crooked, very dead mobster, Verity knows it's up to her to solve the case.
She teams up with her ghostly gangster buddy Frankie, as well as the irresistible and charming Ellis, as the three of them search haunted mob hideouts, hidden passageways, and historic cemeteries for the facts behind the heist of the century—and a modern-day motive for murder.
Too bad uncovering the truth could very well make Verity the next victim...
Speaking of downs, Verity still has the problem of a vindictive 'nearly'
mother-in-law to cope with and that scheming manipulative female (yep I'm thinking an entirely different word!) has made sure Verity is penniless and unemployed. Now, luckily Verity gets offered a job at the bank, but finding her new boss dead in the bank's vault kind of puts the kibosh on that! It's okay, Verity will step back and let the police do their thing; but when Frankie starts believing a long dead mobster is guilty of the crime, it's time for this intrepid duo to start investigating.
Well, Ms Fox kept me wondering just who committed the murder and why. I love trying to unravel a mystery and this author certainly set up a good one here. It's the characters that help drive this story though and whether it's a cute skunk or a grumpy and most definitely non-PC ghost, it's most definitely a fun read.
If romance is what you seek, then it's on the back burner but fear not there's a very persistent officer who appears to have a back bone, hurrah! I was thoroughly entertained and freely admit it's Frankie and all the mayhem he causes that has me laughing the most. Mystery, danger, and ghosts what a quirky read.
