Summary

Haunts presents an amazing ride through the back alleys of San Francisco, into a rehearsal studio filled with jealousy, violence and ghostly apparitions, all existing in a city as wondrous as it is repellent. George Zumpo, a down on his luck "half-breed" arrives in the City seeking his wife, his dog and his Volkswagen Westfalia Camper. There he meets homeless drunks, crazy cocaine snorting musicians, and a loose family of friends living in a 1970's South of Market warehouse. A novel as funny as it is dark, as tragic as it is hopeful, Haunts is a captivating portrait of people down on their luck.

After she receives another rejection for her novel, Leon urges Jane to put her hobby to rest. And why shouldn’t she, when through Jane’s rose-tinted glasses, they appear to have the perfect house and the perfect life?
     
    But then Leon is brutally attacked in their driveway while their children wait quietly in the car, and suddenly, their perfect life becomes the stuff of nightmares. Who would commit such a hateful offense in broad daylight? With her husband in a coma, Jane must open her eyes to the problems in her life, as well as the secrets that have been kept from her. Although she might not like what she sees, if she’s committed to discovering who hurt her husband—and why—Jane must take matters into her own hands.

    An explosive novel of betrayal and blood vengeance featuring Seattle detective J.P. Beaumont. 
    There are those who don’t deserve to live—and the corpse floating in Elliott Bay may have been one of those people. Not surprisingly, many individuals, too many in fact, are eager to take responsibility for the brutal slaying of the hated biotech executive whose alleged crimes ranged from the illegal trading of industrial secrets to rape. For Seattle Detective J.P. Beaumont—who’s drowning in his own life-shattering problems—a case of seemingly justifiable homicide has sinister undertones, drawing the haunted policeman into a corporate nightmare world of double deals, savage jealousies, and real blood spilled far too easily, as it leads him closer to a killer he’s not sure he wants to find.
