READING, WRITING, AND RAISING THE DEAD
 
When Chess Putnam is ordered by an infamous crime boss — who also happens to be her drug dealer — to use her powers as a witch to solve a grisly murder involving dark magic, she knows she must rise to the challenge. Adding to the intensity: Chess’s boyfriend, Terrible, doesn’t trust her, and Lex, the son of a rival crime lord, is trying to reignite the sparks between him and Chess.

Plus there’s the little matter of Chess’s real job as a ghost hunter for the Church of Real Truth, investigating reports of a haunting at a school in the heart of Downside. Someone seems to be taking a crash course in summoning the dead — and if Chess doesn’t watch her back, she may soon be joining their ranks.

As Chess is drawn into a shadowy world of twisted secrets and dark violence, it soon becomes clear that she’s not going to emerge from its depths without making the ultimate sacrifice.

The Downside Ghosts :: Series

Series contains 6 primary works and has 9 total works.

In Chess Putnam’s world, ghosts are real, and — what’s worse — they’re dangerous. Lucky for her, she has the ability to hunt and banish them, which she puts to good use in her job as a debunker. People who try to get government money by claiming they’ve got a ghost need to go through Chess first. It’s up to her to decide whether they’re committing fraud — and she rarely makes mistakes. Dark, sexy, and always suspenseful, the Downside Ghosts series chronicles Chess’s adventures in a frightening, fascinating world wholly unlike our own.
