A Bailey Ruth Ghost Novel

After a busy morning dispatching emissaries from Heaven's Department of Good Intentions to those in need, Bailey Ruth Raeburn is feeling flush with success. So when an urgent call for help comes through from her old hometown, she can't resist taking on the mission herself. After all, what could go wrong?

With the shouted warning of her boss, Wiggins — “Irregular! Problematic!” — ringing in her ears, she arrives to face a shocking scene: Professor Iris Gallagher leaning over the corpse of her colleague Matt Lambert, the murder weapon clutched in her hand. Bailey Ruth is only sent to help the innocent, but things are looking very black for Iris. With Wiggins breathing down her neck, and her old friend Police Chief Sam Cobb casting doubt on her every theory, Bailey Ruth must uncover the truth — or this could be the last trip to earth she's ever allowed to make.


Customer Reviews

“A charmer of a detective, a twisty mystery, and a feel-good story that’s balm for our troubled times”

— Kirkus Reviews

“Amusing . . . A warmhearted traditional mystery that will appeal to fans of Nancy Atherton’s “Aunt Dimity” books.”

— Library Journal

“Delightful . . . Bailey Ruth’s concern for the vulnerable makes her a particularly endearing sleuth. Fans of paranormal cozies will be in heaven.”

— Publishers Weekly

“A gritty heroine downplays the Southern charm to focus on a complex crime.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“Slaughter doesn’t save her twists for the end, instead peppering them throughout the intricately layered story amid stomach-churning near misses and gripping character revelations. Equal parts hyperrealistic thriller and epic tragedy, Slaughter’s latest is pitch-perfect storytelling.”

— Booklist (starred)

“Masterful — written in elegant, captivating prose. The story sweeps along in five interlinked sections, in which the characters move through different stages of their lives and their country’s history. Hollinghurst shines a clarifying light on the gay and art worlds through decades of British cultural and political change. In this magnificent novel, Hollinghurst is at the height of his powers.”
