Review: Dying for the Past (A Gumshoe Ghost Mystery #1) by TJ O'Connor

Dying for the Past (A Gumshoe Ghost Mystery) - Jane O'Connor

 

I chose this cozy mystery for the Ghost square because the MC (Oliver Tucker) is a ghost who helps his former (still living) police partner solve crimes. In this particular story, Tucker is not the only ghost - there is his ghost mentor/great-granddad Doc and two other ghosts that are specific to the house that the murder took place in. I didn't like any of the characters and the plotline was overly complicated and tried to tackle too many big topics into one mystery. No real police work was done by the living cops, more so done by the ghost and his still living wife (a professor at a nearby college). It was a slog to get through and I won't be trying any of the other books in the series.
