" The author paints indelible images with words that are nothing less than stunning. There are twists and turns to keep even the most jaded reader guessing. Fast-paced, unpredictable, and funny, the dark subject matter is treated with irreverence and indisputable style." Laurie, Goodreads
Keenan is just your typical, everyday graphic designer. He eats, he drinks, he loves... and he lives with hundreds of pesky ghosts that only he can see.
They make his life interesting in a Chinese curse sort of way. Enter Isabella, a witty, smoking hot co-worker who turns him into mush every time he gets near her. He's got it bad. But how can he win her over when he knows his fun-loving “friends” won’t leave it alone?
Introduce a horny succubus who visits him on a nightly basis, an angry entity that's trying to kill him, and a burly city cop who wants to arrest him, and you have a comedy of disasters that takes this reluctant psychic and turns him into an even more reluctant hero.
As he passed through, twenty or so ghosts
littered his living room, watching the last few minutes of the news. Keenan
pulled air into his lungs before picking up the remote.
They were costing him a fortune. The TV, the
radio, and even his computers were always on. Lights went off and on
constantly. The heat would soar to eighty degrees in the middle of the summer
and then plunge to fifty when the winter freeze set in. He couldn’t keep any
pets; the instant they came into the house, they hissed or yelped in terror and
ran away. The neighborhood was full of cats that had once belonged to Keenan.
He couldn’t keep girlfriends, either. The
closer they got, the more convinced they were that he was on drugs, a serial
killer, or terminally cracked. He hadn’t had a girl at his house in years; for
some reason, they got all heebie-jeebies on him when things started flying
around or icy blasts of air unexpectedly lifted their skirts. One girl even had
her panties removed, but not by Keenan. He was in the kitchen at the time.
Friends? Forget it. They tended to search
for the exit when he told them he saw dead people… and not in the good way.
Moviemakers had it all wrong. These weren’t people who wanted release; they
were freeloaders who wanted nothing more than to torture the living, especially
those who could see them. Keenan had lost count of how many pranks he had
endured over the years. Somewhere in the thousands, he was sure.
When Keenan clicked off the power to the TV,
the crowd of specters growled em mass. The box sizzled back on. Keenan held the
remote defiantly toward the set and banged the power button again. It hissed
off. Three male ghosts, a solid and two transes, pounded on their chests like
apes, and the TV came back on.
“Leave the God damned thing off,” he
bellowed, thumb wrestling the remote one last time. The few spirits visible
faded away, but not before four of them flipped him off. A barrage of couch
pillows and cushions appeared out of nowhere, knocking him to the ground.
When Keenan shot back to his feet, the
ghosts were gone.
