When Misty Dawn, the former "Hollywood Psychic to the Stars," receives a phone call in the middle of the night, she knows it can't be good news. Dorine Witherspoon, an actress and former client is in town for the opening of her touring musical and tells Misty the show's leading lady, Cassie Marx, has disappeared and the understudy had to go on for her on Opening Night!
Misty immediately suspects foul play and when she and Wilson, her psychic shade, arrive at the theater the next morning they discover LAPD's Detective Cesar Romero meeting with the cast and crew. Events on both sides of the veil take a dark turn when Romero asks Misty off the case, and Wilson appears out of his depth with ghosts who want nothing to do with him.
Death, close calls, and forces on both sides of the veil threaten to undo Misty and destroy her relationship with Wilson unless she can find Cassie and restore order to the show.
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
This is my first book in this series but I was able to keep up regardless. We follow Misty a well known physic that has helped solve murders before with her skills. She is awakened late at night by a home call about a missing actress on opening night. She arrives with her shade sidekick Wilson to look into things. Having a ghost for help does make things interesting I must say as they don't have the same rules as the living. As the story progresses the a great is still missing but her sister has been murdered. The evidence points at the missing one for quite some time until Misty discovers a few tidbits that point elsehwere. The culprit surprised me a little which points to a well written mystery that fans of the genre are sure to enjoy. The ghosts popping up adds just the right touch at the right moments to give the story multiple levels all at once. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
