For Chess Putnam, finding herself near-fatally poisoned by a con psychic and then stopping a murderous ghost is just another day on the job. As an agent of the Church of Real Truth, Chess must expose those looking to profit from the world’s unpleasant little poltergeist problem—humans filing false claims of hauntings—all while staving off any undead who really are looking for a kill. But Chess has been extra busy these days, coping with a new “celebrity” assignment while trying on her own time to help some desperate prostitutes.

Someone’s taking out the hookers of Downside in the most gruesome way, and Chess is sure the rumors that it’s the work of a ghost are way off base. But proving herself right means walking in the path of a maniac, not to mention standing between the two men in her life just as they—along with their ruthless employers—are moving closer to a catastrophic showdown. Someone is dealing in murder, sex, and the supernatural, and once again Chess finds herself right in the crossfire.

BOOK REVIEW:

Chess is back with another case for the church in the form of Roger Pyle and his family. This one will pay well.  All is not what it seems. Secrets are found out.


Terrible is always there for Chess. Chess is lighting both ends of the match, the burning ends will eventually meet and then it will hurt. 
Lex is always there with a baggie and his zipper down. I feel like Chess has crossed the line and payment is Lex's pleasure.


Prostitutes are turning up dead on both sides of the line. Chess has to come up with the answers, Bump wants answers. The Church can't know. Everbody wants something from Chess.


More glimpses are revealed of  Chess's past life. Drugs are her answer. Her life is timed to not be without something in her system. She can not withdraw, somebody will find out, the Church can't know.
Stacia Kane wrote a very tough withdrawal chapter. You felt you were Chess , going through what she was going through.


Terrible lets Chess into his personal life , their odd relationship finally gets pushed too far. He becomes vulnerable for a split second...then she blows it..big time!!!!! Spiralling down fast , Chess must surface and get the answers everbody needs.


When Chess thought there was nothing else to lose in her life, nothing more could be done to hurt her......think again!!!!
