Next up: My latest Gus and Ghost story!

by Debbie Mumford
Audience: Urban Fantasy | General Audience | Short Story

Detective Gus Collier and his partner Jack Barnes solve crimes in Portland, Oregon, but that’s just the surface of Gus’s responsibilities. He’s also the seventh child of a seventh child, giving him paranormal abilities and a second partner, Sarah Allen … who just happens to be a ghost. A ritual murder during the ancient feast of Lammas, or First Fruits, will require all of Gus’s talents (mundane and paranormal) and both of his partners (living and dead!) to solve. Will Gus and Ghost find the answer in time to prevent a city-wide disaster?



And now… Deb’s revised series. Her Cinnamon Chou stories now have updated titles and covers. Same great stories, just a more uniform look as “The Cinnamon Files,”
