Sass and the supernatural cross paths in the entertaining fourth Penelope "Pepper" Martin mystery (after 2007's Tombs of Endearment). Perky, fashion-conscious Pepper, a Cleveland cemetery tour guide and PI for the dead, hopes for a reprieve from ghostly visitors while at a cemetery conference in Chicago. Instead, she lands a gig representing the ghost of snide researcher Madeline Tremayne. Madeline warns that saintly psychologist Dr. Hilton Gerard is working on a shady study-patients go in but they don't come out-and Dan Callahan, his assistant and Pepper's occasional savior, is unwittingly poised to take the fall. Pepper proves once again that great style, quick wit and a sharp eye can solve any mystery, though the rushed conclusion is a little over the top and may disappoint series fans.
