Corona of Blue, by Brandon Berntson. (Still free?)

"Corona of Blue a literary horror novel with a fresh new angle on a modern haunting. Fans of Peter Straub's Ghost Story should find plenty to enjoy. It's elegant, original, dark, compassionate, but still manages to excel in horror and madness. The weaving of compassion throughout makes it a unique ghost story. Rayleigh Thorn is an unforgettable character who gives the novel its life. It delivers brilliantly and sits with you for days afterwards. Highly recommended!" -- Amazon reviewer

Rayleigh Angelica Thorn is being haunted and going mad at the same time. Her parents have just introduced her to the perfect gentleman. She owns her own dark, cryptic bookstore in the heart of the city, The Broken Spine, while its single occupant, Junky, a black cat with an attitude, roams its isles.

But it's all about to come crashing down. A message on her phone unearths a torrents of memories - a voice from the past that should have been dead long ago. Ghostly visitations from a young girl who looks exactly like her, but somehow isn't, haunt her lonely evenings at home.

Rayleigh's mental state is in the balance; she drinks too much, and on top of everything else, she might be falling in love. But in order to save herself, and those around her, she must go home again. Only, with the onslaught of memories, and her fragile state of mind, Rayleigh isn't sure she's up for the task.

Teeming with sass, Corona of Blue is a ghost story thriller like no other. Packing a wallop of chills and frightful shivers, it also brims with love and compassion. Long after the final page is turned, Rayleigh Thorn will haunt you still.

"I saw him," she said. "He handed an envelope filled with money to the tooth fairy."

The ramblings of eighty-nine-year-old woman with dementia. The government employees are used to her regular phone calls and dismiss the crazy old lady; but the new municipal clerk, Chelsey Alton, isn't so sure the woman is off her rocker. Something's amiss in the Village of Coral Beach, a small, New Jersey shore town community, and Chelsey's determined to find out what it is.
The former clerk of Coral Beach, Vinny Buttiglieri was murdered and dead bodies keep popping up all over town. Between being a single mom to a temper tantrum throwing two-year-old, bosses who humiliate her in public, the dead bodies, and a man named Mike Nero that is stalking her, she has her hands quite full!

Chelsey recruits her good friend, Bonnie, a voluptuous woman with an off-color sense of humor, to assist her on a few recon missions. The deeper they dig, the more they put themselves in danger, becoming entangled with sinister mobsters, criminal activity, and government corruption.

Not everything is as it seems. Chelsey thinks she's doing the right thing, trying to uncover the truth and protect herself at the same time, but can she save herself when she becomes entrenched too deep in this Jersey shore mystery?

"This was a very quick read, and heartwarming story about the inside workings of an animal shelter. Any animal lover will enjoy it. There are parts that are sad because of the poor innocent animals, but it's great to read about people who are helping.

"Cleverly constructed, packed with vibrant and believable characters and admirably free of the clich├ęs of the genre . . . one of the most original voices in the notably expanding field of Irish crime fiction and this reviewer, for one, would like to read more of DS Lucy Black." -- Irish Independent

Who is this little girl lost? The only adult she seems to trust is the young officer who found her, Detective Lucy Black. Before long, Lucy manages to connect her case to that of a missing teenager, the kidnapped daughter of a local real estate tycoon. As the investigation twists and turns, Lucy is forced to question not only a range of dangerous suspects, but also everything she thought she knew about her own past.
