It is sort of annoying having dead people dropping by at all hours... Dead & Busy Series by Kfir Luzzatto

"The tone of the tale is spot-on: amusing, quick with the snark, and yet still containing that dark thread that keeps it rooted in the noir tradition it's building upon. I definitely want more Callaghan." - Nathan, Goodreads #2


Accidental Lazarus (#1) 

Published: September 21st, 2017 

It is sort of annoying having dead people dropping by at all hours... 

A paranormal detective like Dave Callaghan has already seen everything, but he never expected to find a presumed dead mobster drinking scotch in his armchair. He is definitely unhappy when he (it?) engages him to find out who shot him. But the worse is yet to come; Dave’s girlfriend gets involved and the real trouble begins. 

Episode 1 of the DEAD & BUSY series will keep you laughing to the (bitter) end. 

"Dave Callaghan is not here to bring you profound, life-changing thoughts; only quick, unadulterated fun." 

Phantom Lover (#2) 

Published: March 21st, 2013


Why Do All These Deadies Keep Flocking Around Dave? 

"It was bad enough, I can assure you, finding a half-naked ectoplasm sitting at my desk, but she had to talk nonsense too . . ." 

Dave Callaghan is used to having ghosts drop by uninvited at all hours. But this time he is in for a new experience, and you must get ready for a good laugh! 

Episode 2 of the DEAD & BUSY series - the one with the hooker. 

Mice (#3) 

Published: September 21st, 2017 


A Mouse That Keeps Reciting Poetry to You, Is a Pest 

When white mice plague a short-tempered mobster, he hires Dave Callaghan to find out where they are coming from. The mobster wants to know why the mice wake him up in the middle of the night to recite "Mary had a little lamb" to him. 

Dave is used to dealing with ghosts of every description, but this time he is facing a complex conspiracy that involves the government and a lascivious ghost. 

Episode 3 of the DEAD & BUSY series - the one with the Aussie ghost sailor. 

The Accountant (#4) 

Published: September 21st, 2017 


In Which the Accountant Disappears With the Bank Codes 

What can be more maddening for a businessman, than to have his trusted accountant disappear with all the bank access codes? Well, discovering that he has eloped with the ghost of a prostitute surely makes it worse. 

The need to walk into a ghostly brothel doesn't put Dave off. He even befriends one of the girls there and fun is had by all. 

Episode 4 of the DEAD & BUSY series - the one with the little ghostly whorehouse.
