As M.J. and Heath arrive at the museum to meet Gilly to get to the bottom of this and re-acquire the relic they are met with resistance with the Director, Phil Sullivan. After a confusing commotion three of them go back to M.J.s condo and try to work out why this happened. Soon there after Detective Olivera shows up at her door and it all gets worse the relic, a dagger was stolen and the Director is found dead.
With Olivera viewing the three of them as suspects she is blinded by what is really going on around her. M.J. and Heath have no choice but to give her a front row seat to a very real haunting. They take her to an apartment building haunted by an elderly woman that doesn't like guests. After contact with a true ghost Olivera is now on their side and they can work together to solve who is behind the theft and murder.
I loved the story, there is a lot more in the book then I could put in the summary above I just felt I couldn't without giving to much away. Within a few chapters I couldn't put it down M.J. and her gang find themselves at a great deal of disadvantages in the challenges they face but by sticking together as a team they give one hell of a fight. It was very enjoyable.
Ms. Laurie writes great characters, I especially love M.J. and Gilly's relationship how they play off of each other. She even gives minor characters a much deserved life, like Olivera and Ayden. I also live how she brings past spooks into the story like Heath's ancestors and M.J.'s spirit guide Sam. Or the guest spot of my favorite Psychic Eye. And Doc is adorable too.
