Life isn’t easy, but it’s easier than adjusting to being dead. Rafael Jones is still learning about his new diet, powers, and limitations when he’s asked to certify that a house isn’t haunted. But when it turns out to have the ghost of a murdered flapper, his new mission is to locate the missing gangster who killed her, the magic mirror that helped the killer disappear, protect his client, and stop a new string of murders. Magic and mystery collide in the summer of 1947, and our detective is digging up answers to questions going back as far as the end of WWI.

About the Author
Helen Krummenacker, nee Helen Henry, is a native of California. Her most joyful and creative days are those when a cool marine layer off the Monterey Bay stimulates mind and body (as asthma and fibromyalgia are problems). However, she began writing as a girl growing up in the hot Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley. She started with short stories and poems, generally published without pay in small zines. Her creativity also encompasses visual art, winning awards in local shows and selling with Allan via her gallery at: http://fineartamerica.com/artists/helen+krummenacker. More recently Helen's focus has been on math and science as she returned to school to earn a bachelor's degree in math. Thus she has put the math in "polymath", a term that readily describes her wide range of interests. These skills and interest come together as she brings real world science to the shared science fiction writing experience in partnering with her husband Allan Krummenacker in the most recent book in his Para-Earth series. A constant advisor in previous works, she has taken up the keyboard and joined in production this time.
