Publisher Comments:

When Gilda lands a summer internship at the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., she finds herself caught up in both a museum haunting and a real case of espionage. While investigating a cemetery where Abraham Lincoln's son was once buried, Gilda stumbles upon a spy's "dead drop" of classified information. As she tries to decode the cryptic message, Gilda realizes her case is not only a matter of investigating the supernatural; she's involved in an urgent matter of national security and faces her most serious challenge yet.

Review:

She's a physic investigator, fashion extraordinaire and a barrel of laughs. Need I say more? The Dead Drop, Jennifer Allison's fourth installment in the Gilda Joyce series, is refreshing and witty. When Gilda journeys to the nation's capital for a spy internship, she finds herself with more than she bargained for. Amid a whirl of peculiar events and ghostly sightings, Gilda's skills are put to the test as she battles to uncover the truth. With her trusty typewriter and an ample supply of wigs, Gilda Joyce will once again take the world by storm, and redefine the definition of intrepid.
