A HARD DAY'S FRIGHT: A Pepper Martin Mystery - Casey Daniels

From the back of the book: Cemetary tour guide and reluctant medium Pepper Martin is enjoying quite a reputation on the ghostly grapevine. So when a free spirit from the sixties needs closure, she knows just who to haunt.....

What happened to a teenager named Lucy one night in 1966 after a Beatles concert? She rushed the stage, kissed Paul, started home with her friends, and was never seen again.

Until Pepper sees her---as a ghost who has heard of Pepper's gift of communicating with dead people and solving their murders. Lucy's spirit can't rest in peace until her body is found and buried. But how will Pepper track down a missing corpse after forty-five years?

With a little help from her friends......


Pepper Martin mystery series has had me hooked since DON OF THE DEAD. The titles are fab, matching each book's premise. The covers are excellent with Pepper, never full face or looking away from the reader, posing among the tombstones.

Pepper has become quite good at detecting for the dead after solving the last six ghosts' issues. She knows research and hoofin' it around to get answers. She still likes to look stylish doing so and she still isn't overly adoring of her job, but she does love her boss, Ella, and now Ella needs her help. There's a ghost who needs rest, Ella's daughter who needs a mentor and a murderer who needs to be caught. And Pepper is just the right woman for the job whether she wants to be or not.

Five ghost talkin' in style beans......
