7th in series.
Ive been following Pepper from the very beginning, and I have to say, shes definitely grown as a character. Since Quin dumped her, shes now very independant(as she usually is) and is sought out by a young ghost on a rapid train. Pepper learns that the ghost is Lucy Pasternack, an old friend of her boss, Ella. Ella is haunted by Lucy's dissapearacne, and Pepper is determined to find Lucy's killer and body, after Ella's daughter Ariel dissapeard for a day. They are trying to teach Ariel the importance of saftey and checking in, etc. Ariel then takes a liking to Pepper, and soon becomes her clone detective. Pepper has a lot of clues to unravel, even when one of the suspects turns up dead. Pepper is never really in any immediate danger during this book, but it was somber like, and i honestly felt sorry for the victim. But nothing could have prepared me for the shocking ending on the very last line of the book.
Anyways, this was a tightly woven plot with lots of twists and secrets. It was almost like watching a "Cold Case" episode. I am thanking my lucky stars that there will be another in the series, although Im not sure which direction the author is going to take this series.
