Missing money, a dead body, and a new ghostly hitchhiker.
Oliver Atkinson should be helping plan his fortieth birthday party. Instead he meets Toni, a young woman about
to embark on a charity run. When her boyfriend is found murdered and she is the prime suspect, Charlie
Morningside insists his long distant relative is innocent of murder. Although he’s been dead since 1921 so he is
not the most reliable witness.
With the help of Amanda, the con woman who seems to enjoy turning his world upside down, Oliver has to dig
deep to find who would want the victim dead. Unfortunately all roads lead back to Toni and as evidence starts to
mount up he has to decide whether to follow the trail of clues or Charlie’s gut.
At least no one is trying to kill him this time. Yet.

Book Endorsements
“I love this series because while it is a cozy mystery and it does require some suspension of disbelief (dead
people living in Oliver’s head!!) it is a bit more gritty and edgy than the typical cozy.”
“The Ghostly Hitchhiker series is absolutely brilliant, and this latest one is no exception.”
