Just because she can see the dead doesn’t mean Verity Long wants to spend her days hunting ghosts. Instead, she’s over the moon to land a marketing job at the local bank…until she finds her new boss dead in the vault. Even her ghost friend, Frankie, knows that's no way to start a career.

Relieved to let the police take charge, Verity steps aside, bound and determined to keep her ghost sightings to herself. But when she learns the main suspect in the murder is a very crooked, very dead mobster, Verity knows it's up to her to solve the case.

She teams up with her ghostly gangster buddy Frankie, as well as the irresistible and charming Ellis, as the three of them search haunted mob hideouts, hidden passageways, and historic cemeteries for the facts behind the heist of the century—and a modern-day motive for murder.

Too bad uncovering the truth could very well make Verity the next victim...

Oh, this was fun! I have really been enjoying the Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries series so I was eager to listen to this installment. It was really easy to slip back into Verity’s world and I could wait to go along as she worked to solve another mystery with her ghostly companion, Frankie. From beginning to end, I was completely entertained by this delightful cozy mystery.

When Verity gets the chance to work with the local bank, she is excited about the opportunity until the man giving her the job ends up dead in the bank’s vault during their first meeting. When she figures out that a ghost may have some involvement, she knows that she needs to look into the case. The mystery kept me guessing and there were some developments that will impact future books in the series.

Tavia Gilbert is one of my favorite narrators and I think that she does a fantastic job with this series. I love the voices that she uses for Verity, Frankie, Ellis, and all of the other characters. I think that she is able to add a lot of emotion to her reading which really helps to bring the story to life. I am sure that her narration added to my overall enjoyment of this book.

I would definitely recommend this book to others. I really like all of the characters in this series and think that the paranormal element is very well done. I cannot wait to check out more of Verity’s adventures!

    Oh I need to get back to this series I think I’ve read the first two and Angie is a local author from st. Louis thanks for putting this in front of me

    • I didn’t know that you were in the St. Louis area, Debbie! It is always nice to find other book bloggers in the area.

  3. I really need to try this series. I really love her Biker Witches series (which I still need to finish), also with Gilbert narrating. Wonderful review.
