Overview

Jackie Lyons investigates a father's mysterious death, in the second installment of Jeff Crook's ghostly mystery series.

When photographer and former Memphis police detective Jackie Lyons finds Sam Loftin's lifeless body in the same location where his daughter died five years earlier, there's no reason to think he didn't kill himself, too. No reason, except Jackie has just seen Sam's ghost act out the last violent moments of his life.

In investigating his murder, Jackie is drawn into a tumultuous battle between wealthy and powerful suburbanites and a charismatic preacher trying to serve the poor and homeless. But a deeper mystery lurks beneath the petty rivalries and jealousies of a gated community, one that stretches back into the distant past and reaches out to snare the youngest of this generation. A secret so dark, it can only be protected by "The Covenant."

In Crooks impressive second Jackie Lyons mystery (after 2012s The Sleeping and the Dead), Jackie, who was once a vice cop in the Memphis PD, has hit bottom. Shes an ex-junkie, living in a fleabag motel. She struggles to support herself from photographing accident victims and overdoses for the police and insurance companies and is haunted by her ability to see ghosts. When she visits an upscale estate for an assignment to take pictures of an antebellum house, Jackie sees a man stagger and fall into a lake. Her account of what she observed arouses the suspicions of the local sheriff after it becomes obvious that the man, Sam Loftin, died several hours before this incident. Jackie is further disturbed to learn that five years earlier Loftins daughter took her life at the very same spot that his ended. Jackie is a compellingly flawed lead, and Crook convincingly incorporates the supernatural into a nicely hard-edged noir. Agent: Peter Riva, International Transactions. (Jan.)
