Not to mention a mysterious Russian agent hell-bent on "recruiting" Richelle into a suspiciously perfect overseas job, plus there's a vicious Ripper-style killing to investigate, one that ties in with the Black Rose Murders that terrorized the city nearly 90 years ago. Throw in the increasingly bizarre behavior of Richelle's ex-husband, Devon, and the fact that somebody's bugged every inch of Richelle's house - and it all adds up to a recipe for disaster....
But once again, just as in The Dead Detective, the first book in the series, some very offbeat characters come to her aid. There's her lovesick ex-detective partner, Malena Ayon, for one, and the long-dead ghost cop Bull McGuinness for another. And Richelle's equally dead new boyfriend, a dreamy World War I vet cut down in the prime of his youth. Last but hardly least is the roguish old Irish Traveler and scam artist Dicky Dadd, who claims to be Richelle's vanished father but who may be something else entirely: a half-Gypsy wizard sent to watch over her by the kriss, or Romani High Council.
On the eve of a second Ripper murder at a nearby theme park, Richelle and Malena must race to save an innocent victim's life - along with that of Tamara - while battling shadowy forces both real and supernatural as the story builds to a shattering and unexpected climax.

Gypsies, Scamps, and KGBs
The more I read of this series, the more I like it. It always takes a while to get used to a new narrator, but
I'm definitely loving the whole package now.
