Summary

Solving a murder way too close to home, Alison Kerby can’t catch a break.If Alison Kerby really wanted peace and quiet, she never should have opened the Haunted Guesthouse. The Jersey Shore lodge’s latest polter-guest is Richard Harrison, the recently murdered brother of long-time resident ghost PI Paul Harrison.Alas, a beyond-the-grave brotherly reunion is nowhere in the foreseeable future—phantasmal Paul left the guesthouse months ago for parts unknown, and for all her ghost-whispering prowess, Alison has no idea how to find him. And she’s going to need Paul, because Richard’s isn’t the only murder still unsolved.Richard, a lawyer in life, tells Alison that he had been working the case of a woman accused of murdering her stepfather. When Richard got too close to the truth, he was permanently silenced. Now, as Alison searches for Paul, she gets a creeping sensation that the murderer doesn’t appreciate her snooping around. If she doesn’t succeed in her hunt, she has the feeling that she’ll be the next to haunt the house.Raise your spirits with The Hostess With the Ghostess, the latest installment of Barry Award-winning author E. J. Copperman’s national bestselling Haunted Guesthouse mysteries.

    "A brilliant follow-up to LAST GASP – loved it." 
    -A monstrous killer, safely behind bars – But just how safe is, 'safe'? 
    -An archive of debauchery and murder, poised to ruin reputations, careers, lives 
    -A detective running out of time to find what he seeks 
    Eighteen months on from the case that nearly cost him his life, only DCI Jamie Carver knows the true extent of the Worshipper Killer's network of depravity – and the storm that will hit when others learn of it. They include those who walk Whitehall's corridors of power, as well as others in high office, maybe even the Police Service itself. When former members of the killer's network start dying, Carver suspects someone is out to make sure their involvement remains hidden, and will stop at nothing to do so. Needing information, but chained to a desk, his only recourse is the person he vowed to never have contact with again – the extraordinary and dangerously-seductive dominatrix, Megan Crane. 
    The second in the DCI Jamie Carver Series, and Book Two of The Worshipper Trilogy, FINAL BREATH is a breathtakingly-compelling story of intrigue, conspiracy, and brutal, bloody murder – one in which Jamie Carver finds himself up against people in high places, while forced to renew his acquaintance with the woman who, despite all his efforts, still haunts his dreams. 
    ROBERT F BARKER is a former, British Senior Police Detective. During a thirty-year police career, he worked in and around some of Northwest England's grittiest towns and cities. As a senior detective, he led investigations into all kinds of major crime including, murder, armed robbery, serious sex crime and people/drug trafficking. Whilst commanding firearms and disorder incidents, he learned what it means to have to make life-and-death decisions in the heat of live operations. His stories are  grounded in the reality of police work, but remain exciting, suspenseful, and with the sort of twists and turns crime-fiction readers love.   
    FINAL BREATH is the second in his series of gritty crime thrillers featuring his Northwest-based, murder detective, DCI Jamie Carver.
