Everybody dies. Nobody leaves . . .
After narrowly surviving a near-fatal shooting, Portland detective Myron Vale wakes with a bullet still lodged in his brain, a headache to end all headaches, and a terrible side effect that radically transforms his world for the worse: He sees ghosts. Lots of them.
By some estimates, a hundred billion people have lived and died before anyone alive today was even born. For Myron, they’re all still here. That’s not even his biggest problem. No matter how hard he tries, he can’t tell the living from the dead.
Despite this, Myron manages to piece together something of a life as a private investigator specializing in helping people on both sides of the great divide—until a stunning blonde beauty walks into his office needing help finding her husband. Myron wants no part of the case until he sees the man’s picture … and instantly his carefully reconstructed life begins to unravel.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
There are some plot twists that I guessed but there were just as many that I didn’t see coming. Even knowing the whole story now, I think this is a book I will be able to read again and again. I look forward to Myron’s next adventure.
Ghost Detective is an outstanding book, one that uses its paranormal premise not as a way into scares or even romance, but instead uses it to explore ideas about loss, death, and our pasts. It’s really well-crafted stuff, and I’m excited to see that Carter plans more books in this series; after this one, I’m eager to see what comes next for Myron.
I can only hope this is the first in a long series because I want more. My sister loaned me this book and I liked it so much I bought a copy to send to my daughter. She’s very picky and loves unique plots so I’m careful what I select as a present for her. Good characters, good plot, intriguing action.
Ghost Detective has it all — suspense, humor, compelling characters, and a depth of emotion that kept me turning the pages into the wee hours of the morning. A fantastic story from Scott William Carter that grabs you by the collar, pulls you in, and won’t let go.
Fantastic character development, snappy dialogue, and an interesting, intelligent plot line 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.”
