A Ghostly Christmas Present

The new Clarke Lantham Mystery is here. Explore the true meaning of Christmas with murder, mayhem, ghosts, and unfortunate accidents of physics!

It’s hard to beat being thrown in an out-of-state jail on a trumped up charge as a Christmas present, but detective Clarke Lantham loves a challenge. So when he calls up his brother for help with bail, he thinks he’s prepared for the ordeal of spending a holiday weekend with relatives who put the “strange” back in “estranged.”
That was his first mistake. Unfortunately, with an old client gumming up the works, a ten-year-old neice with a ghost problem, and the occasional murder competing for his attention, it’s unlikely to be his last.

Currently available through Smashwords. Available at Amazon and B&N in the next couple days.

And Then She Was Gone features a lot of travel through the San Francisco Bay Area. Car chases, investigative trips, shadowing, and stakeouts, Lantham ranges far and wide over locations both real and fictitious. This map contains all the ones I could remember off the top of my head — if there’s anything mentioned in the book that you’d like to know about, let me know and I’ll add it to the map.
