The Dead Detective Agency (Paperback)
Tori wakes up on a "cruise ship" after having been shot in her dream - or did she really get shot? It eventually becomes clear to Tori that she is in a limbo of sorts and that she really was shot, but she has no clue why someone would shoot her. That's when Tori enlists Seamus, another dead soul who has chosen to stay in limbo and help solve murder cases for the deceased! They are able to travel back to the land of the living, using a live person as a host for their "spirit", and figure out why Tori was shot. This is a really fun twist on the detective novel!— jill
Young secretary Tori Van Camp wakes one morning on a luxurious ocean liner where she is offered whatever a person might desire: food, clothes, recreation, and the companionship of congenial people. But Tori has no memory of booking a cruise. What she does have is a vivid recollection of being shot point blank in the chest.
With the help of the stunningly handsome Mike and the unnervingly serene Nancy, Tori soon learns the purpose of her voyage. Still, she is haunted by the image of the gun, the crack of the shot, and the malevolent face of the shooter. Who wanted her dead, and why?
Determined to find out, Tori enlists the help of Seamus, an eccentric but shrewd detective. Together they embark on an investigation unlike anything Tori ever thought possible. Death is all around, the future is uncertain, and if Tori does not act quickly, two people she cares about are prime candidates for murder.
