A powerful witch might live a long time, but a single well-placed bullet could change that. While my preferred weapon was magic, I was not averse to shooting anyone or anything offering my sister or me harm.”
Ex-soldier and earth witch Nyx Ianira is working as a PI in San Francisco when she sees the last thing she ever wants to see: the Sisters of Justicethe mysterious earth witch police force. A Triad of Sisters usually means an execution mission, but the Sisters only goal is to capture and escort Nyx across the country.
Nyx is badly needed back in Twitch Crossing, Georgia, the place she ran away from ten years ago to escape the stiff rules and duties of being a true witch. She wanted a life of her own. Now shes being dragged back to her swampy hometown because another life is in danger: Her little sister is missing, and Nyx is the only one who can track her down in Duivel, Missouri.
But the key to finding her may lie with dark and tempting Etiennea sinister criminal with a fearsome reputation, a ruthless attitude, and a total immunity to magic....
"Only a thin border separates the worlds of the living and the dead in Price's captivating series debut. Alex Craft is a penniless PI attached to two very high-profile cases: she's raising the first shade ever to take the witness stand and has discovered that the death of a local official involves magic. Nekros City police detective Falin Andrews wants her out of the latter investigation, which would suit Alex just fine if she hadn't been infected by a soul-sucking virus that only solving the case can cure. Add a little work freelancing for Death and a budding romance with Falin, and Alex is in way over her head. The world is nothing new, but a zippy pace and entrancing descriptions of 'grave sight,' which juxtaposes a decaying spirit world on top of ours, will keep readers happily turning pages. (Oct.)"

Not even death can save her now.

When she's raising a "shade" involved in a high profile murder, it attacks her, and then someone makes an attempt on her life.

FIRST IN A NEW SERIES
You know the theory that ghosts are energy trapped when someone dies violently? Its true. I know it for a fact....
My name is Jensen Murphy, and thirty years ago, I was just an ordinary California girl. I had friends, family, a guy who might have been the One. Ordinaryuntil I became a statistic, one of the unsolved murders of the year. Afterward, I didnt go anywhere in pursuit of any bright lightI stayed under the oak tree where my body was found, and relived my death over and over. So when a psychic named Amanda Lee Minter pulled me out of that loop into the real world, I was very grateful.
Now Im a ghost-at-largerescued by Amanda (I found out) to be a supernatural snoop. Im helping her uncover a killer (not mineshe promises me well get to that), which should be easy for a spirit. Except that Ive found out that even ghosts have enemies, humanand otherwise
Jensen Murphy is back in the spooky sequel to Only the Good Die Young.
Some people think that ghosts are spirits that refuse to go to the other side because they have unfinished business. Take my wordthats true. I should know. Im a ghost.
I was an ordinary eighties California girl, dead before my time, until psychic Amanda Lee Minter pulled me out of the time loop where I was reliving my death over and over. Now Im Jensen Murphy, Ghost for Hire. I decided to put my spooky talents to use in helping Amanda Lee track down bad guys and killers (including my own).
Its taken time to figure out exactly how that will work (our first case was definitely a learning experience for all involved), so when a young woman asks Amanda Lee for help convincing her best friend to leave a dangerously hot-tempered boyfriend, Im ready and willing to use our collective powers on her behalf. But some people are dangerous not only to the livingespecially when there are darker forces involved....
