Synopses & Reviews
The author of the Vampire Babylon series and Only the Good Die Young presents another ghost story...
Ever wonder what happens after you die? Well, as a ghost, Jensen Murphy could tell youand the truth is much stranger than anything you could imagine
I never accomplished much when I was alive. As an average eighties California beach bum, I, Jensen Murphy, didnt have any direction. But since Ive joined Boo World, Ive found a calling. Now, Im a supernatural investigator, using my ghostly skills to spook confessions out of bad guys.
But being a paranormal PI is taking its toll. Spirits are hounding me for justice day and night, and, now, a ghost hunting TV show is digging up dirt on my unsavory demise that Id rather keep buried. Worst of all, a seriously evil specter is making my afterlife hell by hurting the people and ghosts I care about. To stop him, Ill need assistance from a higher poweronly the price Ill have to pay for that help could be my very soul
"Freed after 30 years of reliving the moment of her murder, Jensen Murphy is both unable and unwilling to move on to the afterlife. She wants to figure out her killer's identity but has few clues to go on. Driven by a displaced need for redress and prompted by psychic benefactor Amanda Lee Minter, Jensen decides to use her spectral abilities to win justice for Elizabeth Dalton, who was stabbed and dismembered by a person who still hasn't been punished. Jensen becomes an unseen spectator flitting amongst Elizabeth's friends, her inexperience balanced by a vengeful determination. Her supernatural powers, while useful, are not as important to the resolution of the plot as her insight into human nature. The novel is firmly planted within the urban fantasy genre, but it recalls the more vibrant world of cozy mysteries. Green's amusing diversion serves as a charming introduction to what with luck will become a long-running series. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

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
