Pepper Martin Has a Gift –

And she'd love to give it back. Ever since Pepper hit her head on Gus Scarpetti’s mausoleum, she can see dead people. She hears them, too, and they won’t shut up!

Now it’s Didi Bowman, a poodle skirt-wearing relic from the Great Beyond, who’s bending Pepper’s ear, complaining that her famous author sister, Merilee, has done her wrong. Trouble is, if Pepper proves it, she’ll break the hearts of millions of Merilee’s fans. And if she doesn’t . . . well, Didi’s annoying ectoplasm may never go away.

Pepper needs peace and quiet (and after she’s laid off from her job at the cemetery, rent money, too), so she takes a job as Merilee’s secretary and digs around the family tree. What she unearths is more than she bargained for: an illegitimate daughter, a bunch of illicit love affairs and a possible murder.

Suddenly, a very poisoned pen is all set to write Pepper out of the story–permanently.
