Spirit and Dust by Rosemary Clement-Moore

In this sequel to Texas Gothic, teen psychic Daisy Goodnight works with local police and the FBI to solve murder cases. Her talent for speaking with the dead is deemed "useful" even if the evidence she uncovers is not admissible in court.

But when the dead bodyguard she interviews gives her more questions and no answers, and the trail to a kidnapped girl leads to the Egyptology exhibit in Chicago's Field Museum, Daisy learns that being a kick-ass psychic detective might be a lot more dangerous than she originally thought.

Ghosts, witches, magic, a jackel-headed god, and a tyrannosaurus rex, plus a hot young FBI agent and a good-looking son of the Mob, combined with fast-talking, smirky dialogue. Think "The Mummy" meets "Indiana Jones" and you won't be far off.

Rating:
Action, adventure, some bloodshed, some death, and a few steamy kisses.  Recommended for readers ages 14 to adult.

The events may not have happened; still, the story is true.  --R. Silvern
