The Haunted Heist By Angie Fox
Season Publishing Mystery & Thrillers, Romance Pub Date: March 17, 2016
I've read the entirety of Angie Fox's Southern Ghost Hunter series, and have to say that The Haunted Heist is the best installment yet. There is ample humor, an intriguing mystery, and more than a dash of charming romance. I absolutely adore Frankie, Verity's ghostly companion, a former wise guy. When you come from a world of guns, mobsters, speakeasies and high action, it's no surprise that being tied to an urn cramps your style - particularly when trips to the dollar store and the library are your main excursions. Verity is still trying to make a go of her graphic design business, but her ex's mom has made life extremely difficult. She is more successful when it comes to becoming involved in murder.
The Haunted Heist has some of the most wonderful sequences of ghostly action - from a speakeasy where dead villains regularly top each other off for entertainment to a high speed car chase involving ghostly pursuers and a Tommy gun.
Expect a fun murder mystery, as well as resolutions to a few issues. Will Verity and Ellis date in the open? Will Verity admit that ghost hunting is her calling? I won't tell you the answers. You will have to read to find out.
I received a copy of The Haunted Heist from the publisher and netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
From New York Times bestselling author Angie Fox
Just because she can see the dead doesn't mean Verity Long wants to spend her days hunting ghosts. Instead, she's over the moon to land a marketing job at the local bank...until she finds her boss dead in the vault. Even her ghost friend, Frankie, knows that's no way to start a career.
Glad to let the police take charge, Verity steps aside, bound and determined to keep her ghost sightings to herself. But when she learns the main suspect in the murder is a very crooked, very dead mobster, Verity knows it's up to her to solve the case.
She teams up with her ghostly gangster buddy Frankie, as well as the irresistible and charming Ellis, as the three of them search haunted mob hideouts, hidden passageways, and historic cemeteries for the facts behind the crime of the century--and a modern-day motive for murder.
Too bad uncovering the truth could make Verity the next victim.
Third book in the new Southern Ghost Hunter mysteries. Can be read as a stand-alone.
