Frank Calvert knows a lot about dead people.Thoughts on Ghosts of the Motor City: A nicely atmospheric introduction to a series set in a decaying city. Frank is world-weary and not content with being confined to a desk. Going out on a call puts him in an odd, terrible position and things start unraveling around him.
As a Detroit homicide detective, he's seen his fair share of corpses, and solved more than a few murders. But lately, the spirits of the recently deceased have been following him around, demanding answers for their untimely deaths.
When a frozen corpse turns up in an abandoned parking garage, Frank and his partner Mel work to solve the murder before the spirit is consumed by a darker shadowy entity Frank can't quite shake.
A new kind of noir mystery series begins with this original short story, originally published in the charity anthology Geeky Giving.
Without giving too much away, I liked the twist. I liked how things ended. The set-up for what I assume is coming is fantastic. SO MANY WAYS THINGS CAN GO.
I always enjoy Sierra Dean's books and this short story hit the spot. *thumbs up*
