A Death Retired Mystery
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Death’s not taking a holiday. He’s retired.
Geoff hadn’t planned on sunshine, margaritas, and women in skimpy bikinis. After hanging up his (metaphorical) hood, he had hoped to spend his afternoons reading at the local library. Unfortunately, his former position (as one of the deaths, not the death) was seeping into his current retirement and hijacking his restful plans.
Bad enough that he’s stalked by ghosts, but his former bosses have also saddled him with the care and feeding of a possessed bobcat. And then he meets his beautiful neighbor Sylvie, and his world truly is turned upside down.
Click to see how Geoff becomes involved in his first murder investigation and all of the uproarious antics that ensue.
What You See
Excellent humorous mystery! I like the idea that death has retired but he has a side kick bobcat named Clarence. Geoff and Clarence together are in for some interesting escapades! Read this excellent mystery and meet Geoff and Clarence and the people in his new neighborhood !
I was already a fan of the Vegan Vamp series (and Spirelli Paranormal Investigations by Kate Baray), so I was looking forward to this new series. Geoff Todd has recently settled down into a "normal" human neighborhood, after retiring from being one of the Soul Collectors (he prefers this title to Death). His companion is Clarence, a ghost who can see and hear other ghosts and is possessing the body of a bobcat. As Geoff settles into his home and tries to adapt to living in this century, he seeks a solution to a pesky ghost problem which leads to meeting the neighbors. Sounds simple, doesn't it?! This was a great read and has presented great characters for this new series - Clarence, neighbor Sylvie, medium Lilac, witch Tamara, and finally Hector. I love how despite Geoff's background as Death, he is a real newbie when it comes to all things paranormal...this makes him charming and quaint. I can't wait for the next book in this series.
