Mystery Woman Sleuth
The spirit is willing . . . to catch a killer.
Young widow Penelope McClure and her Aunt Sadie Thornton
are making ends met by running their newly remodeled
mystery bookshop, a quaint New England landmark, rumored to
be haunted. Pen may not believe in ghosts, but she does
believe in good publicityŚlike nabbing Timothy Brennan for
a book signing. But soon after the bestselling crime writer
reveals a secret about the store's link to a 1940's murder,
he keels over dead, right in the middle of the store's new
Community Events space.
Who gives Mrs. McClure the first clue that it was murder?
The bookstore's full-time ghost, a tough-talking, hard-
boiled private detective, who was murdered on the very spot
more than fifty years before. Is Jack Shepard a figment of
Pen's overactive imagination? Or is the oddly likeable
fedora-wearing specter the only hope Pen has to solve the
crime? You can bet your everlasting life on it.
