I'm not a believer in the paranormal, so most paranormal stories don't attract me. I came across the first book in this series ("Desolate Angel") totally by accident, never having heard of either Chaz McGee or Katy Munger. The jacket blurb was intriguing enough for me to sit down and read it, mostly out of curiosity over how the situation was set up and carried out. Somewhat to my surprise, not only was my curiosity sated, but my attention was completely engaged. This book carries on in that same manner. The characters are interesting and (in my opinion) well-developed, the plots are well-thought-out, and watching the parallel investigations by the living and the dead is a novel approach. The tone of this novel was a bit different than the first two, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it.
