Cesaria Putnam's life as a Debunker for the Church of Real
Truth involves a series of situations that go from bad to
worse and back again. After the revelations of the Truth of
the afterlife, the government and religions gave up the
ghost, literally. Debunkers go to haunted places, but their
real job is less about capturing and sending on the violent
dead and more about getting bonuses for the longer they can
go between real hauntings.
Banishing takes a lot out of the tattooed witch, so she
owes a local pimp and drug dealer a lot more money than she
thought. After striking a deal to help him with a potential
haunting, Chess gets stuck in the middle of a gang war.
Intricately plotted within a disturbing setting, UNHOLY
GHOSTS will be riveting for many readers, particularly
those fans of Kim Harrison.
The world is not the way
it was. The dead have risen, and the living are under
attack. The powerful Church of Real Truth, in charge since
the government fell, has sworn to reimburse citizens being
harassed by the deceased.
Consequently, there are
many false claims of hauntings from those hoping to profit.
Enter Chess Putnam, a fully-tattooed witch, freewheeling
Debunker, and ghost hunter. She’s got a real talent for
nailing human liars and banishing the wicked dead. But she’s
keeping a dark secret from the Church: a little drug problem
that’s landed her in hot and dangerous water.
owes a lot of money to a murderous drug lord named Bump. And
Bump wants immediate payback. All Chess has to do is
dispatch a very nasty species of undead from an old airport.
But the job involves black magic, human sacrifice, a
nefarious demonic creature, and crossing swords with enough
wicked energy to wipe out a city of souls. Toss in lust for
a rival gang leader and a dangerous attraction to Bump’s
ruthless enforcer, and Chess begins to wonder if the rush is
really worth it. Hell, yeah.
