about

Everybody dies. Nobody leaves ... Award-winning author Scott William Carter returns with his tenth novel, a spellbinding tale of a man who bridges both sides of the great divide.

After narrowly surviving a near-fatal shooting, Portland detective Myron Vale wakes with a bullet still lodged in his brain, a headache to end all headaches, and a terrible side effect that radically transforms his world for the worse: He sees ghosts. Lots of them.

By some estimates, a hundred billion people have lived and died before anyone alive today was even born. For Myron, they're all still here. That's not even his biggest problem. No matter how hard he tries, he can't tell the living from the dead.

Despite this, Myron manages to piece together something of a life as a private investigator specializing in helping people on both sides of the great divide--until a stunning blonde beauty walks into his office needing help finding her husband. Myron wants no part of the case until he sees the man's picture ... and instantly his carefully reconstructed life begins to unravel.

"Carter's writing is on target." - Publishers Weekly

"The Sixth Sense meets Spenser For Hire in Scott William Carter's magnificent Ghost Detective." - Michael J. Totten, author of Taken

"Scott is one of those rare writers who can and does cross genres, and do it well. You never know what kind of story you'll get from him, but you do know that it'll be good." - Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Hugo award-winning author of The Disappeared

SCOTT WILLIAM CARTER's first novel, The Last Great Getaway of the Water Balloon Boys, was hailed by Publishers Weekly as a "touching and impressive debut" and won the prestigious Oregon Book Award. Since then, he has published ten novels and over fifty short stories, his fiction spanning a wide variety of genres and styles. His most recent book for younger readers, Wooden Bones, chronicles the untold story of Pinocchio and was singled out for praise by the Junior Library Guild. He lives in Oregon with his wife and children.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Entertaining I found this book very entertaining, the lead character was very complex .and the idea of hundreds of ghosts walking around is interesting . Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ghost Detective Really enjoyed this story, a bit different to the usual 'I see dead people' thing, and not flippant about it either. I liked the fact that the central character had depth and substance, instead of being hurried and one-dimensional. Looking forward to my next read from this author.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ghost Detective This writer has a different concept in writing his mystery stories. .If you believe we crossover when we die you will get fully involved with his mysteries he does jump from the present to the past but that doesn't seem to obstruct the flow of the story, and I usually dislike jumping around in time dementions Can he keep the ghosts from harming the lead charachter?
