This week I would like to extend a warm, welcome return to Fiction Books, by author Stan Schatt.
As always, I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to Stan, for continuing to show faith in Fiction books, to offer promotional posts for his books, even though full reviews may not always be forthcoming in a timely fashion, due purely and simply to my own time constraints.
‘A Bullet For The Ghost Whisperer’ is the second book in the Detective ‘Frankie Ryan’ series and sounds like a great follow-on from her debut mission in ‘Silent Partner’.
‘A BULLET FOR THE GHOST WHISPERER’
When the CEO of Zynx, a high-tech startup company, is found dead at his desk, determined Detective “Frankie” Ryan is assigned the case. She learns that everyone entering and leaving the super-secure building is logged in and out automatically—it would take a ghost to get through that kind of security. She enlists reluctant gossip columnist and ace reporter for the Midnight Whisperer Josh Harrell, to help her solve the case. After all, he has his own ghostly assistant, a seductive spirit that only he can see. But can she save Josh and Frankie from the killer?
‘A Bullet for the Ghost Whisperer’, is a good old-fashioned police procedure mystery with a dollop of the paranormal. Sprinkle in a dose of high-tech intrigue, a pinch of Harry Bosch, and a touch of Faye Kellerman’s ‘Rina and Peter’ novels and you have a fun read.
Stan describes himself as a futurist, technologist, novelist, and a person curious about many things.
His curiosity about things might be well born out by the veritable roll call of jobs he has held over the years including: autopsy assistant, police department administrator, salesman, sales manager, literature professor, telecommunications professor, and technology analyst, and research director.
For many years he worked as a technology analyst, covering such diverse areas as green technology, wireless networking, network security, and local area networks. He has written several books on these topics and started Schatt Research as a way for him to publish his views on key technology trends. Because traditional market research firms charge such outrageous fees for their reports, he decided to publish his studies as books online, available at Amazon for a tiny fraction of what companies he worked for sold the same type of material.
Stan is now a full-time writer and lives in Carlsbad, California with his wife, Jane. He is primarily writing mysteries at the moment when it comes to fiction, together with his technology papers and non-fiction books focusing on careers and retirement.
He is also a volunteer job facilitator for the Jewish Family Service in San Diego, with the goal of finding good jobs for the unemployed.
