Private investigator Richard Steele must solve his most difficult case ever—his own murder—while caught between women on both sides of the grave. His lover Lee is tangled up in the mess he left behind, and his dead ex-wife Diana has been waiting on the other side for her chance at revenge.

In a race against time as his spirit slips away, Richard confronts his many, many failings and faces a power beyond his understanding–love. His only weapon is faith, and he’s running out of bullets.

It’s going to be a hell of a final showdown.

Includes the bonus ghost story “She Climbs a Winding Stair.”

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

He uses just the right amount of humor, and heart to make this story great. Whether the author intended for it to be poignant or not, I took away a lot more from this story than just entertainment. I have marked several passages that I found inspiring and insightful. The story isn’t simply about a man trying to solve his own murder, it’s full of wonderful imagery of both the physical and emotional sides of our lives.

This is one I will be recommending to friends and family!


The book is reminiscent of Joe Lansdale at his best. Perhaps we need to call Nicholson the Lansdale of the SouthEast or somesuch. His words are beautiful, his characters absolutely genuine, his phrasing memorable and downright funny at times. Can’t give this book high enough phrase. If this keeps up, Scott Nicholson will be in my top five list of favorite writers of all time! Good work, Scott! Please, oh please, keep it up!!


Original, brilliant prose, flows faultlessly. An arresting protagonist. The book has a fast pace grabbing the reader by the throat and holding on tight. The dialogue is so credible driving the plot. Loved it.

About The Author

Author Scott Nicholson has written 12 thrillers, 60 short stories, four comics series, and six screenplays. He’s also a freelance editor and journalist. He lives in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, where he tends an organic garden, successfully eludes stalkers, and generally lives the dream. He’s online at

Nicholson has written hundreds of songs and poems and was a musician in a former life. a newspaper reporter, he’s won three North Carolina Press Association awards. He’s had the usual collection of odd jobs: dishwasher, carpenter, painter, paranormal investigator, baseball card dealer, and radio announcer. Now he haphazardly trades words for magic beans and uses “haphazardly” as often as possible while decrying the overuse of adverbs.

Entering the digital era with a vengeance, Nicholson is releasing original titles and collections while conspiring to release interactive books in the near future, building audio files, video, and collaborative fiction projects. He operates Haunted Computer Books and Indie Books Blog to bring a variety of voices to readers.

Nicholson won the grand prize in the international Writers of the Future contest in 1999. That same year, he was first runner-up for the Darrell Award. He studied Creative Writing at Appalachian State University and UNC-Chapel Hill. He has been an officer of Mystery Writers of America and Horror Writers Association and is a member of International Thriller Writers and inaugural member of the Killer Thriller Band.

Unfortunately, they never taught him to write: he had 105 rejections before his first story sale and over 400 before he sold a novel. He hasn’t learned much from his mistakes but thinks he’ll probably improve with practice. If nothing else, he’s become a better liar.

His website features author interviews, articles, and fiction excerpts. Bad relationship advice. Humor. Gardening tips. Subliminal tricks to sell his books. That sort of thing.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Scott Nicholson and ENT appreciate it.
