Dr. Charlotte Stone “Charlie” is a serial killer researcher who sees ghosts. As a girl she had her first encounter with a serial killer who murdered her friend's family. When a young woman escapes from a serial killer and ends up at Charlie's door she becomes involved with the investigation conducted by the FBI as the serial killer known as “The Gingerbread Man” is also after Charlie.

FBI agent Tony Bartoli and Charlie have been dating but there will be little time for dating as they try to capture “The Gingerbread Man” before he chooses his next victims.  Charlie has
 another complication because she sees ghosts.  She has her own personal ghost, Michael, 
who she  alternately pushes away and then pulls back to her. Michael was part of her research and he is  determined to stick around with Charlie.  He is jealous of the relationship developing between Charlie and Tony and makes no secret of it.

The FBI and Charlie must act quickly to locate the serial killer before he kills again.  Charlie's    emotional attachment to Michael continues to deepen even though her more rational mind tells her that Tony should be the one she chooses since he is a flesh blood man, not a ghost.  

I really liked Michael as he searched for a ways to assist Charlie with investigation.  There werealso some steamy scenes between Charlie and Michael.  The last few chapters had me on the edge of my seat trying to determine who the serial killer might be.  I am hoping there will be a
third book as I would like to read more about Charlie and Michael.
