Dying To Know ( A Gumshoe Ghost Mystery #1) by TJ O'Connor


I think I will like the next book better, because we will know more about the characters and their relationships good or bad. This kept you guessing till the end. You do not know who to trust. Can you trust all the cops? Did Tuck and Angela have a good marriage or bad? Why was Tuck murdered? What are the laws for ghosts? Their was so much Tuck and the reader has to find out. Who are the bad guys and good guys.

Tuck was killed right off the bat. His memory is not the best. The only one who he can see and talk to is his dog. He finally can communicate with his wife. She keeps saying its her fault. His partner is being sneaky and to friendly with his wife. Angela at times is glad that he is back but also hides things and wants privacy.

Dr. Angela Tucker works for the University and she is also supposed to look at area that new highway was going to build but some bones and artifacts were found she needs to help decide what should be best for the site. She stays in the bedroom while Tuck goes to investigate the noises downstairs. After she hears her husband being shot she lets the dog out and saves her. A lot of people are getting hurt around her.

Bear is Tuck's partner but he was hiding some files that Tuck had before the crime scene comes into the house. He also searches the house that night.

Their are plenty of secrets, lots of action, mistrusting everybody. The two cops working the murder think that Angela and Bear are having an affair. Tuck does not believe his partner and wife were. Tuck is jealous and is questioning it after some facts come out.

Lots of twists and turns so you feel lost for most of the book. It is a clean read. I definitely want to read more of this series and see where it will take us next.

I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest opinion of it by Netgalley and Midnight Ink

01/08/2014 Published Midnight Ink 384 pages ISBN-10: 0738739502

Description below taken off of Netgalley.

Tuck never knew death was so overrated . . .until he dies.

When Dr. Angela Tucker hears a bump in the night, Oliver "Tuck" Tucker is in no mood to investigate. But he does. And before he knows what’s happening, Tuck is shot dead with his own spare service revolver.

Returning as a ghost to the scene of the crime, Tuck has no idea who shot him and he sure doesn't know why his old partner has hidden a file in his office. Slowly harnessing his ghostly abilities, Tuck is able to communicate with Angela, an archaeologist, and together they try to piece together the truth. Was Tuck killed by a supposedly retired mobster or was the intruder looking for information related to Angela's archaeological dig?
