Spirit and Dust

By: Rosemary Clement-Moore

BOOK TALK

Daisy Goodnight arrives at the scene of a murdered bodyguard to communicate with the spirit of the dead, but she soon discovers that the girl he protected, a college student named Alexis, was kidnapped.   The daughter of a mob boss, Alexis loves the classical world of Greece, Rome, and Egypt.  With the help of Alexis’ dead grandmother and a very alive Mr. Carson, Alexis finds herself a kidnapping victim on the run.  Carson is a mystery who possesses his own magical powers.  Together they race to track down the Oosterhouse Jackal before the kidnappers do.  Add in an Egyptian queen, a secret society, missing artifacts, and Daisy may be over her head in trouble.
