But when his first couple of cases combine to drop him into deep trouble, can his sense of adventure survive? For that matter, can he? A practical man with a kind heart, he never expected to encounter supernatural evil threatening the people he cares about.
Rafael Jones is still learning about his new diet, powers, and limitations when he’s asked to certify that a house isn’t haunted. It turns out to have the ghost of a murdered flapper.
