About the Book
A “thoroughly enjoyable” mystery featuring an American musician in Ireland, murder, theft—and a ghost or two (Agatha Award–winning author Daniel J. Hale).Gethsemane Brown, African American classical musician currently living in an Irish village, has solved a string of murders, led a school orchestra to victory in a major competition, and gotten used to living with a snarky ghost. She can rest easy over the Christmas holiday. Right? Wrong. The ghost has disappeared, her landlord’s about to sell her cottage to a hotel developer, and her brother-in-law is coming for a visit—with one day’s notice.

She scrambles to call her spectral roomie back from beyond and find a way to save the cottage from certain destruction. But real estate takes a backseat when her brother-in-law is accused of stealing a valuable antique. Gethsemane strikes a deal with a garda investigator to go undercover as a musician at a charity ball and snoop for evidence linking antiques to a forgery and theft ring, in exchange for the investigator’s help clearing her brother-in-law. The problem is that during the party, she accidentally conjures the ghost of an eighteenth-century sea captain—then ends up the prime suspect in the party host’s murder. This investigation may become her swan song . . .

“Gethsemane is an appealing protagonist.” —Library Journal

“Gethsemane Brown is everything an amateur sleuth should be: smart, sassy, talented, and witty even when her back is against the wall. In her latest adventure, she’s surrounded by a delightful cast.” —Cate Holahan, author of The Widower’s Wife
