Overview

First in the USA Today bestselling author's new paranormal mystery series

There are other worlds with mysteries to solve.

Worlds where not all of the suspects are technically alive.

That's when Karma kicks in.

Karma Marx exorcises haunted houses, sending troublesome poltergeists and other spirits to the ever after. But one assignment traps Karma, her foster child, her sleazy soon-to-be-ex husband, Spider, and his crooked partner under one roof. And when Spider turns up dead, it's a locked house mystery, and Karma's determined to reveal the truth, even if it means tackling all of the mansion's inhabitants-mortal and otherwise...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Part-human, part-otherworldly exorcist Karma Marx agrees to clear her oily human husband Spider's haunted house in exchange for an uncontested divorce. At the house on Washington's Olympic Peninsula, she finds a poltergeist cop named Adam who claims that he, rather than Spider, owns the house; a psychic, Savannah; a bunch of imps who keep turning up, and many other denizens-almost all of whom have a reason to hate Spider. When he's found dead, suspects abound; thanks to a seal that Adam places on the house, everyone is trapped for 12 hours, during which Karma and Adam are determined to identify the killer. Marsh (as Katie McAlister, author of The Last of the Red-Hot Vampires) throws in a bit of a twist at the end, but despite lots of noisy activity, the investigation often plods. (Feb.)

    Fantastic as are all of Katie's works. Totally different from the dragons, and Dark Ones. Will there be other books in this series? I know it has been a while, but would love to follow Karma's life, loves, and adventures.

    Good book.

    Ghost of a Chance was a change from the usual genre Katie writes in, but I have to say that it was still a good book. I liked all the new personalities in this book. It takes a different look at some of the paranormal stuff. Its a good read, the ending was a nice twist, some people may see it coming but others wont. If you like Katie's writing style you will also like this book, but dont expect it to follow the same pattern as the other paranormals she writes.

    enchanting paranormal mystery

    Karma Marx is an otherworldly being who is half polster and half human. She is faster than mortals, able to hide in the shadows, and is working off a punishment for accidentally killing her best friend as a young child because she didn¿t know her own powers. She is a transmortis anomaly extermination which means she cleans the homes of otherworldly beings and usually ends up bringing them into her own home. The Akashial League which oversees her punishment has her foster young polter child Pixie for a month her husband Spider agrees to a divorce if she cleans up the Walsh home that night. When she arrives there she is met by her husband, his partner Meredith, Meredith¿s wife Savannah who wants to make contact with the operational entities living in the house and Adam, another polter who believes the house still belongs to him. When Spider refuses to give it back, he creates a binding spell that prevents anyone from leaving the abode he hopes to mediate the ownership of house with Spider but before he can do that, someone kills him. Adam, a Marshall in the mundane plane and an investigator in the otherworld, with the help of Karma investigates the homicide. They have twelve hours to find the culprit otherwise the case will be taken out of their hands. --- Katie MacAlister writing as Kate Marsh pens a spellbinding and enchanting paranormal mystery populated by a horde of polters, a unicorn, a guardian and the imps who keeps following Karma home no matter where she puts them are hilarious. Although there are a lot of magical scenes, it is mundane investigative techniques that give the heroine a GHOST OF A CHANCE in solving this paranormal locked room whodunit. --- Harriet Klausner
