It may well appear that I am having something of a Carolyn J. Rose moment in my reading schedule, as hot on the heels of the ‘Subbing Isn’t For Sissies’ series, Carolyn has already published and sent me this, her brand new murder / mystery, although this one does have something of a new twist to it, in that it contains the added element of the paranormal.
When her grandmother dies, Rain Paxton inherits an extraordinary gift—the ability to follow a phantom dog into the afterlife, to a place called Nightfall Bay. There, at the edge of a dark sea, the souls of the missing and murdered must wait for earthly mysteries to be solved.
Pierce Jennings is a wealthy man, rich enough to fund a crime task force. But money can’t buy what he wants most—to know whether his wife is dead or alive. Missing more than two years, Ariel is one of a dozen women taken by a serial killer known as the Peddler.
Drawn to Pierce, and longing to learn Ariel’s fate and free the souls of the Peddler’s victims, Rain prepares to journey to Nightfall Bay. But the Peddler will kill to keep her from speaking with the dead and revealing his identity.
