Series: Gumshoe Ghost mystery #2
Pages: 395

Description:

Dying is not for the faint of heart . . . . . . Neither is the murder of a mysterious philanthropist with ties to the Russian mob and 1939 gangsters.

At an A-list charity ball organized by his wife, Angela, former detective Oliver "Tuck" Tucker is doing his best to prove that ghosts know how to have a good time--until a man is murdered in cold blood on the dance floor.

Never one to let a mystery go unsolved, Tuck is on the case with help from Angela and his former police-detective partners. Together, they must be the first to read "the book"--deceased gangster Vincent Calabrese's journal that names names and reveals the dirty secrets of several modern-day spies.

As Tuck learns the book's secrets, he begins to unravel his own family's wayward past, leading to the question--is being a ghost hereditary? Even while chasing a killer, the biggest challenge Tuck must conquer is how to be back amongst the living . . . but not one of them. 

My Thoughts: 

This book follows the story of Tuck who had died in the previous book and finds himself working to solve murders with his partner from when he was a cop Bear and his wife Angela mainly referred to as Angel.  In this book someone gets killed at a Charity Ball and during the course of investigating this Tuck finds himself being pulled into a different era.  

This book pulled you in and had you wanting to know why overtime Bear and Tuck turned around the FBI was taking over the case.  What does this mystery have to do with the Feds and what is their goal in all of this?  

i love this series it really pulls you in wanting to see how Tuck the ghost is going to solve this crime before someone close to him gets snuffed out.  Add to the fact that this book goes back and forth between current time and the past.  Definitely a great new series I will soak up as much as possible!
