Title: Ungrateful Dead
Author: Naomi Clark
Format: Ebook provided by author
PI Ethan Banning wouldn't normally touch a haunting case. Mostly because he doesn't believe in ghosts. But when Charlie Mullen asks him to spend the night at a supposedly haunted morgue, Ethan figures, why not? He's broke and Charlie's offering double his normal rate, and that's good enough for Ethan.
But when a troublesome ghost really does show up, Ethan realises he's going to need more than a good supply of alcohol to get through the night
In this story we meet Ethan Banning, PI from Afterlife. I know I am not alone in saying that I love Ethan Banning! He is snarky and can be a bit mean sometimes. But he is smart and witty, and much better at being a PI than he lets us all believe.
In this short little intro to all that is Ethan, he’s sitting in a bar drinking when he is approached for a job. It seems that the morgue is haunted by the ghost of a young woman who was murdered!
Ethan doesn’t believe in all that paranormal stuff (insert snort and giggle from me here) so he doesn’t really want to take this job. But money is money, and we all need it. So off he goes with Charlie to investigate.
This is just a short story, I can’t tell you too much without giving it away. I will just say it is a must read because it is absolutely fabulous, and it serves as a nice little prequel introduction before reading Afterlife (one of the best books I’ve read this year!). If you like a touch of horror and fright, a bit of snark, something akin to a zombie, and ghosts, then this is the story for you.
