Chicago police officer Zack Lorenzo is stunned with the
apparent heart attack suffered by his twenty something
wife, which leads to her fatal drowning in the bathtub.
Three days after Gabriella is buried, Zack waits in hiding
for her family to leave the cemetery so he can visit

Four years later, Zack is a private detective working
mostly typical cases, but also handling the paranormal with
Cecil as his technical partner. Zack investigates a
disappearance case in West Texas starting with questioning
Sheriff Jo James about a New Mexico mining accident seven
years ago in which she claimed zombies existed. As Jo and
Zack partner up, they make the rounds of various
practitioners of the paranormal with almost every visit
leading to the person strongly recommending they need to
work together to survive and perhaps win against a powerful
seemingly immortal enemy.
Fans of paranormal private investigative romances will take

Jo make the rounds of many of the West Texas practitioners
of the "arts". Though the villain fails to live up to the
reputation garnered by the inquiries, the lead characters
and a couple of their helpers are fun to watch, the
Paranormal 101 trip a delight, and the investigation
enjoyable as the audience receives an engaging weird tale.
