Retired army chaplain Dexter Merriman uses his wits, his wisdom and his faith – oh, and his cat Baggins - to solve a ghostly Halloween murder.
This is a Christian Cozy Mystery novella
A man dies and it’s ruled an accident, but Dex has a bad feeling that someone had a helping hand in the death. With the help of his sidekick, Crazy Maisy, he comes to the conclusion it was murder. The police aren’t convinced, though. So Dex dons his snooping cap to do his own sleuthing.
On top of that, he’s trying to help Beans Mallozzi, an ex-con who’s just been released from jail after serving a sentence for embezzlement. But it looks as though Beans is more interested in helping himself again, and some of Dex’s friends are pretty steamed with him. As if there isn’t enough confusion, Dex is finding his feelings toward Maisy are changing, and he just doesn’t know what to do about it.
Murder, ghosts, thieving ex-cons and affairs of the heart. Just how will Dex sort it all out?
