Everybody dies. Nobody leaves . . . Award-winning author Scott William Carter returns with a spellbinding tale of a private investigator who bridges both sides of the great divide.

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 is fantastic character development, snappy dialogue, and an interesting, intelligent plotline 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.”


Not every writer can bend reality a bit and succeed in making that world work, so kudos to Scott William Carter for doing just that in GHOST DETECTIVE.


THE GHOST DETECTIVE ranks as one of the most ingenious departures from the norm I’ve seen in a long time. It begins with a unique concept and runs with it, blending the best of detective and fantastic fiction in the process.


What a ride through uncharted territory. A stunning combination of of reality and speculation spun into a splendid and inspirational story. It creates a desire to continue reading deep into the night. Get started now.


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.
