agent for the Council of the Dead, he eliminates New York's ghostlier problems. This time it's a string of gruesome paranormal accidents in Brooklyn's Von King Park that has already taken the lives of several locals--and is bound to take more. The incidents in the park have put Kia on edge. When she first met Carlos, he was the weird guy who came to Baba Eddie's botanica, where she worked. But the closer they've gotten, the more she's seeing the world from Carlos's point of view. In fact, she's starting to see ghosts. And the situation is far more sinister than that--because whatever is bringing out the dead, it's only just getting started.

Olders gritty second Bone Street Rumba urban fantasy (after Half-Resurrection Blues) launches readers once again into the dangerous, ghost-ridden streets of New York City. Carlos Delacruz is an agent for the New York Council of the Dead, and his job is to get rid of unwanted ghosts. The city has more of them than ever, thanks to a string of deadlyand suspiciousaccidents. Someone is training ghostlings to do some dirty work, which is just the sort of complication Carlos needs when hes trying to reunite with his old flame and help a young friend whos started seeing ghosts herself. The street is hungry, and before long Carlos uncovers an evil insect cult bent on causing a paranormal apocalypse. Older brings an elemental street vibe to his urban magic, adding an earthiness and texture that really makes his work stand out. Readers looking for stories that deftly mix magic with contemporary Brooklyn culture will enjoy this series. Agent: Eddie Schneider, JABberwocky Literary Agency. (Jan.)
