Hattie Hart is a psychic detective for the Tremayne Psychic Specters Investigations Agency straight out of St. Louis, MO. Her mission is to find out whatever she can about a missing US Marshall in Carolina City, NV. When she arrives at said location, she ends up spending weeks (instead of days) there wrapped up in the most curious of mysteries ever! All alone, and getting a little worried she's going to end up coming back empty handed for the boss, the silver mine folk drag her into an unbelievable scenario.
Right off the bat, SCORE! I love psychics, and ghost stories, and psychics that investigate ghosts, the whole thing is right up my alley. Hattie's story takes place in the late 1800's, the wild west baby! She has a shady past about her, but she's a cool as fuck character, and I immediately liked her. She heads on her investigation alone, which I thought was weird considering the time, but she gives no fucks what people think and gets her shit done. Shortly after arriving in Carolina City she meets the yummy Marshall Grant Madsen. Grant takes her to a grumpy old hag that runs a boarding house, and viola! The story has got me in it's grasp.
This book is really short at 104 pages, but it packs a damn good punch! I thoroughly enjoyed the book from cover to cover, and am so thankful that I was introduced to this author through Carolina Book Fest 2016, or I would have maybe never met her. I would highly recommend this book to any of my ghost detective, psychic loving supporters out there.
