Meet the Author

Casey Daniels once applied for a job as a tour guide in a cemetery. She didn't get the job, but she did get the idea for the Pepper Martin mystery series. Casey learned to love mysteries early thanks to her father, a Cleveland Police detective who enjoyed Sherlock Holmes stories and spent his days off searching for stolen cars—with Casey along for the ride. Later, she read her way through every mystery on the library shelves. Casey has a degree in English and a background in journalism and teaching.

This is the sixth installment of the Pepper Martin series. Pepper works as a cemetary guide and amature detective with an inside track, she is able to see and talk with ghosts. Pepper is heartbroken at the recent break up with her police detective boyfriend, Quinn. He refused to believe Pepper when she finally worked up the courage to tell him that she could speak with dead people. Adding to the misery of her recent break up, Pepper's boss informes her that she will be working on a commemoration for Pressident Garfield with Marjorie, a know it all who delights in informing others of their ignorance and who, unfortunately, really does know everything there is to know about President Garfield. To top it off, Pepper has a creepy stalker leaving her mysterious roses and eerie notes. Could Pepper's life get much worse? You bet it can! Pepper finds Marjorie's body in the tomb of the very President she most admired. Quinn shows up with the police to investigate the murder and Pepper is soon on the case, if only to prove to Quinn that she can solve Marjorie's murder first. Pepper's investigation has caused several men to become interested in her. Only one of them is a ghost, but some of the live ones might not be what they seem. Soon Pepper's life is filled with mysterious nephews, wacky neighbors, teachers, Garfiels fanatics, cemetary volunteers, and that persistant stalker. With the help of the ghost of President Garfield and a reappearing FBI agent, Pepper will soon get everything sorted out. However, can she come up with the solution before Quinn and can she do it before the murderer finds her?

I get a kick out of Pepper and her "friends". Wish Ms. Daniels would continue the series.

Mobi/Paranormal Mystery: I think I skipped a book along the way because I apparently missed some aspects of Pepper's crazy life. I've like her since the beginning of the series. She is a fashion diva trapped in a polo shirt while solving crimes in the greater, spookier, Cincinnati area. In this one, you learn from the beginning that one of Pepper's co-workers has been murdered. She is an obnoxious woman who Pepper can't stand, but Pepper, being Pepper, can't help herself. She is bound and determined to outwit Quinn and find the murderer first. Pepper does get some help along the way: from President Garfield. Pepper hit her head, in the first book, and can talk to dead people. There were a lot of pluses to the book. The mystery kept you guessing and the book kept pace and there were no dull moments. Pepper is lovable, as well as the secondary characters. However, the plot was way out there. The local police and FBI procedures were way off. If I was the murderer, I'd just shut my mouth. All the evidence was circumstantial until the the murderer confessed. The murderer should have just walked away from the situation. There is also the situation with Pepper's stalker. It was a ridiculous premise, but is finally wrapped up in this book.

Pair one of our less interesting presidents, James A. Garfield, with a cute slender, sexually aware, private detective, cum medium, and what do you get? You get this delightful cozy mystery, one of several in Casey Daniel's series of Pepper Martin adventures. But be warned. If you don't like a bad pun or two, several tongue-in-cheek jokes and a huge riff on one of the presidents of these United States, this delightful novel isn't your cup of tea. On the other hand, if your humor runs to the mildly risqué, you don't mind a self-aware sexy cemetery tour guide(!) who happens to be reluctantly channeling the dead President, and you enjoy fast-paced well-conceived criminally artful plots, this latest adventure of Pepper Martin is definitely a winner. Around every prominent figure in history there swirls scandal and scandal attracts the greedy. If this author is to be believed, an incredibly audacious land swap plan was under way when anarchist Charles Guiteau fired the bullet that cut short what might have been a sterling presidential career. That's all in the past. What's here and now, is a well-managed, funny, and twisty story peopled with interesting characters, not the least of whom is well-named, Pepper Martin.
