Product Description

Product Description

When Country singer Candi Starr is found dead along with two close associates in Nashville's esteemed West End, it proves to be just the beginning of a murder spree involving anyone close to the music superstar. This includes ghost hunter and psychic, Fiona Alea, who, along with her handsome rock n' roll husband, Jimmy, head up a local paranormal investigative team known as NVP, or Nash-Vegas Paranormal.

Soon Jimmy and Fiona find themselves on a roller-coaster thrill ride through some of Nashville's most renowned historic sites and famous haunts, where a gruesome discovery lies buried in the past. As horrifying revelations come to light, Jimmy and Fiona close in on an enemy both powerful and merciless—and the chilling truth behind Nashville’s darkest secret.

Acclaim for Aiden James:

“Aiden James has written a deeply psychological, gripping tale that keeps the readers hooked from page one.”
—Bookfinds review for THE FORGOTTEN EDEN

“Not only is Aiden James a storyteller par excellence, but his material for his story is riveting.”
—Huntress Reviews

“The hook to this excellent suspense thriller is the twists that will keep readers wondering what is going on as nothing is quite what it seems. Adding to the excitement is that the audience will wonder whether the terror is an evil supernatural creature or an amoral human…Aiden James provides a dark thriller that grips fans from the opening.”
—Harriet Klausner, Amazon’s #1 book reviewer for THE FORGOTTEN EDEN

“Aiden James writing style flows very easily and I found that CADES COVE snowballed into a very gripping tale. Clearly the strengths in the piece were as the spirit's interaction became prevalent with the family… The Indian lore and ceremonies and the flashbacks to Allie Mae's (earthly) demise were very powerful. I think those aspects separated the work from what we've seen before in horror and ghost tales.”
—Evelyn Klebert, author of A GHOST OF A CHANCE and DRAGONFLIES

“Aiden James is insanely talented!”
—J.R. Rain, author of MOON DANCE and THE BODY DEPARTED

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Southern Mystery July 16 2010
By Melanie Ivanoff - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jimmy and Fiona Alea investigate ghosts, hauntings and other paranormal phenomena in Nashville, TN. When they, and their ghost hunting crew Nash-Vegas Paranormal, discover the brutal murder of famous country singer Candi Starr, it's traumatic but not going to derail their lives. But the death doesn't stop with just the singer. As the killer tears his way through Candi's Nashville connections, the Aleas must try to protect their friends and family, using Fiona's link to the spirit world to help stop the killer.

Side plots follow NVP's ghost investigations, which contribute to some of the creepier moments in the book, as well as the funnier ones. The image of a ghost hanging in a plantation home foyer will stay with you. Jimmy is a great narrator, mixing enough snarky comments in that you believe him as the tension rachets up. There's also a good sense of place; you can feel the humidity and hear the southern accents.

I really enjoyed this mystery. A bit Southern Gothic, a bit of rock and roll backstage, great jabs at corporate culture, some twisty serial killings and enough ghost-hunting specifics to give it a flavor of a procedural, this book is worth the read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Master Story Teller Strikes Again! April 19 2011
By RailroadGuy - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the third novel I have read recently from Aiden James and "Deadly Night:A Novel of Suspense" will have one giving the "next page " button on your Kindle quite a workout! This one follows Jimmy and Fiona Alea ,a couple that heads up a team of ghost hunters dedicated to investigating the paranormal in and around historic Nashville,Tennessee.The team's investigations and the phenomena they capture are certainly fascinating enough. Rest assurred though. this is far more than a mere paranormal procedural as master story teller Aiden James really ramps up the tension by including a stealthy,crafty serial killer,one who definitely seems to have Jimmy and Fiona on his list of future victims.Yes ,the ghosts the team observes are scary,but as the story unfolds,the real terror comes from this side of the grave!

5.0 out of 5 stars A really good read... July 13 2010
By R. Rutter - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a really good read. Kept me interested so I found myself picking up the book often so I could find out what happens next. Finished it in two days because others tasks could wait. I consider myself a fairly intelligent person ergo I was convinced I had it figured out before reaching the end. Ha! I was surprised - did not see it coming. Likable characters and laughs along the way. - R.C. Rutter (Author of Cave of Forlorn - soon to be published on Kindle).

1.0 out of 5 stars Silly and poorly written March 18 2012
By lornadoone - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a mystery fan and got this book as part of the J R Rain Whodunit collection. The other books were readable at least but this is one of the silliest books I've ever encountered. It wasn't the supernatural premise that turned me off. It was the protagnoist Jimmy Alea; a conceited rock star wannabe. He was the embodiment of a teenage boy's dream of being a handsome, muscular, motorcycle riding, guitar playing songwriter who is also a paranormal investigator. The book wasn't so much a mystery (had it figured out by the third chapter) as it was an opportunity to describe over and over (and over) just how cool Jimmy was. Don't waste your time.

2.0 out of 5 stars well, at least i finished it April 5 2013
By MollieOllieOxenFree - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really like paranormal books, as well as mysteries. Thought this would be great since it's both, and there were some really positive reviews. I was not impressed. The paranormal aspect is really more of a side-note, having nothing at all to do with the actual plot, aside from the 'psychic' abilities which didn't really help propel the story. I found the main character annoying and not very believable. After the first couple long descriptive entries about his musical escapades, I had to skim through all the other entries regarding this because it was too unbearable. The character I did like, Fiona, was way underdeveloped. Maybe the author delves more into her persona in other books but I can't say I'll be too interested in reading any more of these. It was free, so I feel bad complaining, plus it wasn't to the point where I just had to stop and not finish like some other books I've encountered for free on Amazon, so that counts for something.
