Book Review: A Bullet for the Ghost Whisperer by Stan Schatt

About the Book

27666507When the CEO of Zynx, a high-tech startup company, is found dead at his desk, determined Detective “Frankie” Ryan is assigned the case. She learns that everyone entering and leaving the super-secure building is logged in and out automatically—it would take a ghost to get
through that kind of security. She enlists reluctant gossip columnist and ace reporter for the Midnight Whisperer, Josh Harrell, to help her solve the case. After all, he has his own ghostly assistant, a seductive spirit that only he can see. But can she save Josh and Frankie from the killer’s bullet?

A Bullet for the Ghost Whisperer is a good old-fashioned police procedure mystery with a dollop of the paranormal. Sprinkle in a dose of high-tech intrigue, a pinch of Harry Bosch, and a touch of Faye Kellerman’s Rina and Peter novels and you have a fun read.


Available on Amazon.


My Review

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

A Bullet for the Ghost Whisperer is a detective mystery with a twist. The main character, Frankie, is a homicide detective but in this case she uses the assistance of Josh, who is a reporter and columnist for a tabloid. Josh has a special talent and sometimes gets “vibes” about people so he is known as the psychic reporter.

Frankie is investigating several murders, two of which that she thinks could possibly be tied together. She’s good at her job and, with Josh’s assistance, it looks like they could possibly unravel the mystery.

A Bullet for the Ghost Whisperer was a fast read and I liked the twists. I wasn’t able to engage with the characters, though. In other words, it was a good story but it didn’t tug at my heartstrings like it could have. I did enjoy it enough that I hope to find the time to read the first Frankie and Josh mystery and hope to read more in the future.
