Synopsis: When the CEO of Zynx, a high-tech startup company, is found dead at his desk, determined Detective "Frankie" Ryan is assigned the case. She learns that everyone entering and leaving the super-secure building is logged in and out automatically—it would take a ghost to get through that kind of security. She enlists reluctant gossip columnist and ace reporter for the Midnight Whisperer, Josh Harrell, to help her solve the case. After all, he has his own ghostly assistant, a seductive spirit that only he can see. But can she save Josh and Frankie from the killer's bullet?
A Bullet for the Ghost Whisperer is a good old-fashioned police procedure mystery with a dollop of the paranormal. Sprinkle in a dose of high-tech intrigue, a pinch of Harry Bosch, and a touch of Faye Kellerman's Rina and Peter novels and you have a fun read.
Review: A BULLET FOR THE GHOST WHISPERER is the second book featuring Detective Frankie Ryan and Josh Harrell, reporter and reluctant psychic. Detective Ryan catches a locked-door murder mystery when the CEO of a tech start-up, Zynx, ends up dead. Roland Price was seemingly well-liked, but obviously not by everyone. Frankie’s having trouble with the investigation and also in her personal life, including having Internal Affairs breathing down her neck. When Josh Harrell is given an interview with a paranoid nut job which leads him directly to Zynx, he works with Frankie to discover the truth behind the murder. A BULLET FOR THE GHOST WHISPERER is a well-written and satisfying murder mystery. The main characters appear to be fully developed and it was good to see them grow throughout the novel. I also appreciated how the paranormal aspects fit well into the storyline without taking over. A BULLET FOR THE GHOST WHISPERER is a mystery novel which will appeal to a large audience.
