Ghosts: A Folly Beach Mystery by Bill Noel

Chris Landrum's idyllic life of retirement on the South Carolina barrier island of Folly Beach just got turned upside down. After more than two decades, his ex-wife, Joan, calls to wish him a merry Christmas. He can tell she wants to tell him something more, but their conversation is cut short before he learns anything. Something's up.

A second call from Joan's best friend delivers startling news. Joan's husband has just been killed in an automobile accident in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, and Joan wants Chris to investigate. Even though it's hundreds of miles from Chris's peaceful beach cottage, he agrees to help.

Meanwhile, Chris's best and strangest friend, Charles, joins the working world as a bartending private detective, two jobs he stumbles and bumbles through with equal measures of incompetence. Country Cal, an aging country music singer and new bar owner, hires Charles to catch a petty thief who is stealing bourbon and cash. Heather, a psychic and Charles's main squeeze, blames ghosts; since no one can figure out how the culprit is breaking in, she seems to be right.

Unfortunately for Chris, he's got a little more to worry about than missing booze. It looks like Joan's husband was murdered. Now, Chris has to find the culprit before he becomes the next victim-hardly a day at the beach!

Fantastic series. Each book is better than the last. I love the sea side setting, the quirky set of characters and the mystery. Can't wait to read the next.

Another great book in Bill Noel's Folly Beach Mystery series. It's number six, I believe. A great beach read with wonderful characters and a unique setting.

This book is wonderful! After only a couple of chapters you are so comfortable with the characters that you feel you are in their “world”. I suppose the reason it’s so easy to relate is that these characters are just like the people we know in real life with their individual idiosyncrasies. I have enjoyed reading the whole FOLLY series although each book can stand on its own merit. The emotional qualities of humor and wit mixed with mystery pushes you to continue reading page after page and not wanting to lay the book down. The author’s description of scenes and events appeals so much to the imagination that you could say you’ve visited. I love this book so much that I won’t lend it out in fear of it not coming back! Try it and say “hi” to Chris, Charles and other friends in my alter “hometown”!
