Lust, Loathing and a Little Lip Gloss
by Kyra Davis

Mystery writer and dabbling recreational sleuth Sophie Katz
is head over heels in love—with a three-bedroom
Victorian. She’s just got to have it, despite a few
drawbacks. Her slimy ex is the Realtor. The rich, creepy
seller wants her to join San Francisco’s spirited
Specter Society. And her first tour of the house reveals,
well, a lifeless body clutching a cameo with a disturbing
history of its own.

There’s no way Sophie is going to give up the ghost on
her dreams of stained glass and original woodwork,
though—even when things become officially weird. A
Society member is found with a slashed throat, and
Sophie’s house might as well be yelling,
“GET…OUT!” She’s hearing footsteps,
lights are turning themselves off and her stuff keeps moving
inexplicably. To top it off, boyfriend Anatoly thinks
it’s all in her head.

Sophie is 99 percent sure her problems are caused by someone
six feet tall instead of six feet under, but the only way to
be sure is to track down the killer—before he pushes
her kicking and screaming to the other side….
