It’s almost Halloween when Albuquerque accountant Charlie Parker receives an enigmatic letter from her namesake aunt she has never met. Charlie is off on a quick trip to England, and soon she’s seeing ghosts in the medieval Suffolk town of Bury St. Edmunds. But it isn’t only slightly-eccentric Aunt Louisa’s beliefs in the occult or her spooky “haunted sites” tours that pique Charlie’s interest. Something sinister is brewing in this quaint village and Charlie finds herself drawn into an investigation of crimes that are far too real.

    Phantoms can be murder

    As always a great read. I know the area of England the story covers. It is mystical to say the least. On to #14... Enjoy!
