Author(s): 

"I see dead people" is the story of newbie P.I. Mojo Sheepshanks' life. Round two of Miller's first-person paranormal detective series jumps right back into the mess that is Mojo's life. The combination of edgy suspense, humor and the supernatural -- not to mention Miller's gift for characterization -- makes this one story you won't soon forget!

Having decided to become a P.I., Mojo hasn't had great success yet, but that doesn't slow her down. She's being haunted by the ghost of mute, recently murdered 7-year-old Gillian. While the police, including Mojo's on-again/off-again lover Tucker Darroch, believe Gillian's stepfather is the killer, Gillian insists he's not, even though she can't identify the real culprit. On the family front, Mojo's sister Greer is being blackmailed and refuses to accept any help -- until her cheating husband turns up murdered. With bodies and ghosts piling up, Mojo is in way over her head. (HQN, Mar., 384 pp., $7.99)
