Publisher's Summary

Solving crime isn't only for the living.   

In turn-of-the century New York City, the police have an off-the-books spiritual go-to when it comes to solving puzzling corporeal crimes.... Her name is Eve Whitby, gifted medium and spearhead of the Ghost Precinct. 

When most women are traveling in a gilded society that promises only well-appointed marriage, the confident 19-year-old Eve navigates a social circle that carries a different kind of chill. Working with the diligent but skeptical Lieutenant Horowitz, as well as a group of fellow psychics and wayward ghosts, Eve holds her own against detractors and threats to solve New York's most disturbing crimes as only a medium of her ability can.   

But as accustomed as Eve is to ghastly crimes and all matters of the uncanny, even she is unsettled by her department's latest mystery. Her ghostly conduits are starting to disappear one by one as though snatched away by some evil force determined to upset the balance between two realms and most important - destroy the Ghost Precinct forever. 

Now, Eve must brave the darkness to find the vanished souls. She has no choice. It's her job to make sure no one is ever left for dead.

Great mystery with a ghostly touch!

A longtime fan of Leanna Renee Hieber, I was excited to listen to the Spectral City, and it did not disappoint! Eve Whitby is the head of a new division of detectives in the Manhattan police department in the 1890s. Unusual in itself for a woman to be working in this capacity, but even more so is the fact that those working with her are clairvoyants and a coterie of spirits helping her solve crimes. The characters are well developed, interesting, and varied; painting a colorful picture of Victorian-era New York City, and the atmosphere Ms. Hieber creates is tangible and delightful. The narration is excellent and helps drive the story along. Highly recommended for anyone a fan of Gaslight romance and ghost stories.
