Dying is what changed Mary O'Reilly's life. Well, actually, coming back from the dead and having the ability to communicate with ghosts is really what did it. Now, a private investigator in rural Freeport, Illinois, Mary's trying to learn how to incorporate her experience as a Chicago cop and new-found talent into a real job. Her challenge is to solve the mysteries, get real evidence (a ghost's word just doesn't hold up in court), and be sure the folks in town, especially the handsome new police chief, doesn't think she's nuts. Twenty-four years ago, a young woman drowned in the swimming pool of a newly elected State Senator. It was ruled an accident. But now, as the Senator prepares to move on to higher positions, the ghost of the woman is appearing to the Senator's wife. Mary is hired to discover the truth behind the death. She unearths a connection between the murder and the disappearance of five little girls whose cases, twenty-four years later, are still all unsolved. As she digs further she becomes the next target for serial killer's quest to tie up all his loose ends.

I thought this was a good book especially when I got it for free. It had about 128 pages. It had very likeable characters. Will get the rest of the series.

The story had a slow start for me. It seemed like too much time was spent describing the small-town life--the picture-perfect scenes and the common people you see everyday. Okay, I get that life in Illinois was like living in a Norman Rockwell painting (Rockwell being one of my favorite illustrators,) but I wanted to get to the true grit of this ghost mystery. Mary O'Reilly is an inquisitive, yet daffy, character. I didn't quite peg her to be the psychic type. A private investigator is supposed to have good research skills. Well, Mary had the research down. In fact, she over-researched, and research about politics and history doesn't make for interesting reading. I intrigued by the concept of a woman dying and coming back to life with this inexplicable ability to communicate with the dead--very alluring! But I wasn't pleased with the execution. Overall, this story was a lifeless drawl of monotony.
