After a stray dog named Hobo leads former police sketch artist-turned- paranormal private eye Rory McCain back to his owner’s corpse, she finds herself involved in another homicide case-not to mention the new owner of a lovable pooch, which makes Rory’s ghostly partner, Zeke, more than a little spooked.
She’s a police sketch artist. He’s a dead lawman. Together, they put a face on murder.
When her uncle dies, police sketch artist Rory McCain get’s a list of clients from his private detective business and a beautiful, old house with a ghostly inhabitant: Federal Marshal Ezekiel Drummond, aka Zeke.
Having a ghost as a housemate is bad enough, but as Rory’s drawn into one of her uncle’s unsolved cases and faces a cold-blooded killer, she may need the marshal’s supernatural help to stay alive.
