Victoria Méliès is one of the most beautiful women living in postwar Europe. She lives a life of privilege, and few people suspect that she works as a spy for MI6 under the code name: Evangeline. On her way to the Nuremburg Trials, an assassin's bullet finds her before she can testify. She's immediately transported to the Pearly Gates where Saint Peter insists on calling her by her code name and assigns her to an eternity in Purgatory. But that just won't do for the elegant operative, who demands that she be allowed to avenge her untimely death.

Evangeline soon finds herself in New York City, where she is incensed to see her old nemesis, Bunny Stanton, is alive and kicking and masquerading as a British peer. The spectral spy believes Bunny is involved in a plot to assassinate Harry S. Truman and tries to protect the American president. However, Evangeline quickly discovers being a ghost has its limitations, and an afterlife handbook filled with regulations could land Evangeline on the road to hell because of her good intentions.

Reviewed by Bruce Arrington for Readers' Favorite Don’t be fooled by this book’s cover. Evangeline's Ghost: Houdini, by C.A. Pack, is a light-hearted suspense story, with humor, heavenly interference, action and wit. It has criminals, tough New York cops, thieves, swindlers and kidnappers. Oh, and I almost forgot: ghosts. Gabriella, a teenage girl, finds herself to be a ghost. But she’s not ready to move on to her eternal reward. Instead, she’s concerned about her father, a French inventor who’s being swindled out of his rightful pay for a masterful contraption created for the master of magic himself: Houdini. Meanwhile, two other ghosts, Christian and Evangeline, are tasked with assisting Gabriella in her search for her father. Learning along the way, they ring the bells of Heaven when they break the rules (such as letting people see them), but find Saint Peter (yep, the real one) as their mentor and guide. I thoroughly enjoyed Evangeline's Ghost: Houdini by C.A. Pack. It was a page turner, filled with humor, and the story itself stayed light and entertaining. The characters were well-fleshed out (although there are quite a few), and easily recognized in the clear writing by the author. I think the humor of the story was the most entertaining part of the book. The author wove funny elements throughout, poking fun at everything from the Big Bad Guy who thought he was getting away with his crimes, to the cops on the street who weren't about to take guff from nobody. For the most part it is a clean read, and I would recommend it for readers ages 12 and up.
