Book Description

Detective Oliver Tucker prefers to be the guy investigating shootings, not the guy getting shot. So when he returns as a ghost after being murdered in his home, it's only natural for Tuck to investigate the most important case of his life--his own. Detective, solve thyself!

Piecing together cold cases, foggy memories, and eerie premonitions, Tuck fears that if he doesn't figure out who pulled the trigger, his wife may be the next victim. Surprised to discover many earth-bound spirits chasing the same killer, Tuck's unique perspective from the other side leads him to a chilling conclusion--it's the living, not the dead, who are most terrifying.

Praise: "TJ O'Connor has a smash hit with his debut novel Dying to Know . . . I couldn't stop reading."--Stephen Frey, New York Times bestselling author

My Review

Dying to Know is written by first time mystery author TJ O'Connor. It is set in Winchester, Virginia..I always like reading about places I've been and Winchester is located on the amazing Highway 50, a beautiful ride in Virginia and into West Virginia. Also, Mr. O'Connor is highly qualified..he is an international security consultant and a former government agent so he must know what he is talking about in regard to weaponry and police procedures.

I don't normally like paranormal stories but this is a different kind of ghost story. I wouldn't really class it as paranormal. This ghost was a part of the story and kept the plot moving along. I probably could deal with the ghost aspect because the author ensured that Tuck, the ghost, did not seem like a ghost. Rather he was one of the characters of the book. Tuck had been a detective in real life and he continued his detecting in the afterlife. Interesting unique story all around.

Great ending...I was kept guessing until the end. One thing I would change...the cover of the book...not eye-catching at all.
