    Wendy Roberts provides another witty breezy Ghost Dusters Mystery

    In Seattle Sadie Novak owns Scene-2-Clean, a firm that cleans up crime scenes. She also is a medium who communicates with the dead. Her job is to help the deceased pass on by removing whatever makes then cling to the earth.

    Most spirits she meets are not evil or even hostile, but Sadie and her lover-co-owner of the business Zack are cleaning out the apartment of his former girlfriend Paula's mother when they run into a malevolent ghost who refuses to allow them to enter "his" room. Running out of the place Zack breaks a bone in his foot. A recovering addict, he is not supposed to take drugs, but he does anyway as he moves into Paula's house to heal. Trying to forget Zack's betrayal for the moment, Sadie throws herself into her work and soon finds a mummified baby in one of the boxes. .The remains could be part of a lot Paula's mom bought at a yard sale or flea market or perhaps it something sinister that happened inside the house. Someone is trying to scare Sadie away; but that fails as she keeps cleaning and exploring while the threats turn increasingly violent.

    This is an exciting paranormal amateur sleuth starring an audacious courageous psychic who does not fear mortal murders having met malevolent spirits. Sadie's father recently died and though he cannot quite fully materialize she selfishly wants to spend quality time with him before he moves on. The whodunit is cleverly devised to keep the audience absorbed with several delightful solid and ephemeral subplots as Wendy Roberts provides another witty breezy Ghost Dusters Mystery (see The Remains of the Dead).

    Great series

    Loved this series. Wonderful characters getting involved in a very unusual job, cleaning up crime scenes, while coping with crossing over the victims.

    Dead and Kicking is the third book in Wendy Roberts' A Ghost Du

    Dead and Kicking is the third book in Wendy Roberts' A Ghost Dusters Mystery series. It's a paranormal/supernatural mystery series with plenty of spook and lots of funny.

    Sadie is an endearing main character who tries to use her power of second sight to send ghosts on to the hereafter. Things don't always go so well for her. She has trouble with vehicles, family, and her boyfriend. But she has her pet rabbit, Hairy to go home to at night.

    The book is paced well and easy to read. You don't have to read the first two books to enjoy this one, although I personally prefer to read series from the beginning. Give Ghost Dusters, any book in the series, a try!
