Max Paddington refuses to go into the light until he finds his killer. This presents a dilemma, since Max is even less competent as a spirit than he was as a live person. No one sees or hears him and he can't manage to get anywhere or do anything on his own.
Joe Cavelli is a private investigator, living an ordinary life. Then one day he walks across a parking lot, gets yelled at by a ghost, and his life only gets stranger from there.
Max and Joe team up to find Max's killer. In the process, they form an unlikely friendship and change each other's lives in ways they never expected. **

"Since I'm a fan of the TV show Ghost Whisperer and a longtime reader of mystery and suspense novels, this book was a delight to discover. Max is stunned to find himself a murder victim, floating somewhere between earth and the hereafter. The only one who can hear him is an investigator he convinces to look into the case. When he's not helping with the investigation, Max is facing his own ghosts from his past as he adjusts to life in spirit limbo. In death, he learns a great deal about his own life. Darcia Helle mixes elements of suspense, the paranormal, humor and introspection into a delightful book that will have readers rooting for Max to come to grips with his murder and go into the light. I've read several of Darcia Helle's books, and she writes intriguing suspense novels on a variety of topics. Don't miss this talented author."--Amazon Reviewer
