Speaking to the dead is nothing for Daisy Goodnight.
The living, on the other hand, can occasionally be a problem. Especially when they knock you out and kidnap you.
Willing or not, Daisy finds herself on a high-speed mission to track down a mob boss's precious daughter, but she's running out of time.
The dead are coming to take over.

FIRST SENTENCE (Chapter 1): The local cops kept staring at me.
MEMORABLE MOMENT (Page 248): Interrupting him was difficult, because as a spirit, he didn't have to stop for breath.
MY THOUGHTS: With a heroine you'll either loved or loathe, Daisy Goodnight (loved the name, loathed the character) is a feisty supposedly teenage physic who, seventeen and three quarters going on 30 in many ways, is employed by the FBI to help solve crimes of the supernatural variety.
Perhaps best described as 'Indiana Jones' spends 'A Night In The Museum'. I'm still not sure exactly what I made of this one. Starting out well and certainly not without its unique and humorous moments but by the end, verging on the farcical, it was anything but.
What I believe to be the second outing for the Goodnight Family, Spirit and Dust reads perfectly well as a standalone read and will, I suspect, appeal more to younger fans of this genre to whom it is aimed.
