The Consequence of Murder
The gruesome discovery of a mummified corpse wakes up something inside investigator Mackenzie Cross. Seeing and hearing things that just don’t happen in Antioch, Georgia, she finally accepts that the very angry ghost of the dead woman is demanding Mackenzie find out who murdered her.
Under ordinary circumstances, she would turn to her best friend, sheriff’s deputy Veronica Birdwell, but not only is Mackenzie unsure how to bring up a very real ghost, she is uncomfortably attracted to Veronica, who is straight and off-limits. She also has another case involving a cheerleader, a blackmailing preacher and a rattlesnake—life is already too complicated to risk love.
The author of the classics The Sunne in Golde and Black by Gaslight and the critically acclaimed Flowers of Edo: A Ghost Story, Nene Adams left behind eleven years working in the newspaper and marketing industries in the U.S., to live and work in a small village in the Netherlands with her partner, Dutch artist Corrie Kuipers. Though her fascination with the nineteenth century and earlier times, she finds inspiration in the modern world as well. The Midnight Sun was her first novel with a contemporary setting and reflected her devotion to stories featuring strong, smart women.
