Book Description (from back cover):
Have powers, will travelComments:
Zoë Martinique was just your average, single female, past 25, looking for love and/or exciting job opportunities. Until life handed her the dubious ability to travel outside her body — which she turned into a career, hiring herself out as a literal spook. Industrial espionage, domestic surveillance, you name it — when she's traveling she can she see but can't be seen...
Then one night things get out of hand while she's out-of-body: Zoë witnesses a murder. What's worse, the killer is also a Traveler — and he most definitely not only sees her, but tries to pursue her.
To save herself, Zoë must somehow guide the very handsome detective assigned to the case to tehe truth without revealing herself. And with the help of her semi-psychic mother, a pair of gay ghosts, and her best friend (a Goth techno witch), she also has to figure out who — and what — the murderer is, before he finds her and puts an end to her traveling — permanently.
I've had everything above the comments section typed up in a draft since early May. We're talking 5/3/2010. So I really don't remember much of the story. Just brief flashes. Too brief to even describe, really. What I can tell you, what I remember, is that I enjoyed it, that I fully intended (and still do) to read more of this series, and... that's it. Maybe I should try to find the 2nd book, Spectre among my hundreds of books (I think I have it here...somewhere). I would probably re-read this one first, except I mailed my copy off to someone else.
