With everyone around her talking about the supernatural, pragmatic Eve won't let rumors of ghosts distract her from hard evidence. The case becomes even more bizarre when it appears to be linked to the suspicious disappearance of a rock star eighty-five years ago. As Eve searches for the connection, logic clashes with the unexplainable. She may be forced to face the threat of something more dangerous than a flesh-and-blood killer.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

Keeping in mind this is one of JD Robb's novellas I think it was a fun and quick read. No it's not as intense as some of her stories can be, but it was nice to read something that has a lighter tone for a change, as I'm sure it was fun for her to write. Definitely the characters are amusing with how they handle the spooky nature of the story. The narration is still the same, as fantastic as always. I have enjoyed the entire In Death series, some better than others but all are entertaining.

If you are an avid reader of the JD Robb Eve Dallas series, you will be disappointed with this one. It is one of a few short stories J D Robb has done and has the same characters and same type of story as the longer versions, but because they are much shorter, they tend to be very trite. There simply is not enough time to introduce the usual twists and turns that are prevalent in the longer books. If you do not follow the Eve Dallas series, you will probably find this book to be quite satisfactory. It is very fast, so there is simply not much time for plot development or introduction of red herrings, but as a general mystery novel, it is ok. I have found that all of her "short stories" suffer from this same problem. The short ones tend to be 3-4 hours listening time while her unabridged longer novels run 7-9 hours.
There is nothing that would make is worth reading
I really like Susan Erickson
No it did not
Always after books that read well in the tractor!
I do not really understand why there are such negative reviews for this one: I found it really enjoyable.
There were supernatural elements to it, but that was kind of the point; and seeing Eve react to them was at times hilarious.
The Ending! Unlike most other In Death books, there is an awkward and abrupt ending. The case and background is building, characters are introduced and then all the sudden its over. Very unlike the other mysteries of this series. No challenge.
Even though this book is shorter, still include the slower unfolding of the case. Don't just throw the conclusion at the readers.
Wasn't really one. The book is basically three scenes.
None! I would recommend adding scenes. If you took a single one away there wouldn't be a book.
I will be seeing if I can get a refund. There is no substance to this book and it should have been sold for $2 instead of almost $10.
I love this series but may consider skipping the .5 editions after this disappointment.
Not bad for a Novella, Dallas gets the prefect case for Halloween. Another person has died in Number 12. Radcliff Hopkins has been murdered in Number 12, and it has links with a murder that happen 85 year before. This is a good little story, it does not have as much detail as J. D. Robb's books, but it is a short story so everything happens quicker. Keep that in mind when you buy it.
I best liked this book because it was a little different and I especially liked the ending where eve had a confrontation killer and the writer left kind of a hint that just maybe there could be something unexplainable, even if there was no such thing as ghosts.
I liked the humor and I like the suspense throughout the whole story.
I listen to several of Susan Ericksen's performances and this one was really outstanding, the character that tried to portray as a ghost was transformed for person to ghost so smoothly that I could actually visualize the scene.
It made me laugh several times, my funniest moment was when Peabody was afraid to go into the haunted building and Eve made fun of her and then later Eve teases Roark when he expresses his belief in the building be haunted with ghosts.
This was a fun book with a good twist at the ending.
I enjoy stories of this kind...where there is a question of the paranormal and is experienced by someone cynical.
Eve's cynicism. Peabody's fascination. Roarke's interest.
I enjoy her performance with these characters.
When the killer is interrogated by Eve near the end.
Yes. If they were interested in this type of story
I liked it
I can't pick Susan plays them all so well they are all integeral to the plots
At the top but all the in death books are great
Finding out who did it
When Dallas saw the ghost and wasn't sure if it was fake felt the cold and heard her singing
Dallas does it again with the help of Roarke of course
