A Bullet for the Ghost Whisperer

~ A Frankie and Josh Mystery ~

by Stan Schatt

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.

Praise for A Bullet for the Ghost Whisperer

A great read! A plot tantamount to a CSI series, woven in a masterful plot that unfolds like the Da Vinci Code—murder, secrets, and lies: An obsessed mistress, a cold-hearted wife, a conniving corporate seductress, and a hard-core lady cop caught in the cross hairs of a police cover up. All unraveled by a local newshound psychic assisted by a seductive female ghost who appears and dissolves out of nowhere and posses the disarming ability to read his mind, especially where it involves other women. Schatt's short chapters plant the reader in the midst of an ever-evolving homicide investigation that peels like an onion as it leads to the culprit in the single head-shot murder of the CEO of a burgeoning software company.

Wouldn't it be nice to have an angel or spirit protecting us when things get out of place or we are in trouble? Josh Harrell is a columnist and reporter for the Midnight Whisperer. Josh is a psychic and has a ghostly assistant named Andy who comes to his rescue just when needed—sometimes.
      Characters that are credible and storyline that is fast paced will keep readers interested. The research into the technology of how someone can create identification badges and override security is really quite interesting and frightening at the same time. This is definitely a must read. Wouldn't it be nice if we all had an Andy?

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.
