All Rachel Blackstone wants is to talk with her father; solve the mystery of how he died. Using a Native American ceremony given to her by a shaman, she summons him in this paranormal mystery/fantasy. Instead, a soul intent on revenge slips through and threatens people she loves. Now the Santa Fe, New Mexico reporter must follow the evil spirit, uncover its purpose and send it back. The shape-shifter has horrific powers. Rachel is tormented by what she has unleashed. There's more. She's seeing dead people; which frankly give her the creeps. Some are helpful; others lead her away from the truth. One spirit, a lone wolf, seems to have an uncertain allegiance. What she, and friend Chloe, uncover is an earthly scam involving both the quick and the dead. Rachel must play a dangerous game of supernatural treasure hunt to stop the ruthless ghost. To survive, she must discover her own powers during a climatic storm of earth, wind and fire. To fail is to die.

AUTHOR BIO: Walking several beats, reporter G G Collins racked up a lot of column inches, a few awards and a writing fellowship at Duke University. She never met a story she didn't like.
There was another side lurking. This side of her personality is fond of the strange, the frightening, the paranormal. When she graduated from children's books at about 12, she began her adult reading career with Shirley Jackson's "We Have Always Lived in the Castle." Wow! She wasn't expecting that ending.
The day she discovered the Hopi ceremony to call back the dead, she just had to ask the question: What would happen if the wrong spirit returned? "Reluctant Medium" resulted.
Second in the Rachel Blackstone Paranormal Mystery Series:
When a friend vanishes into a painting at a posh Santa Fe gallery, Rachel Blackstone travels the astral plane in search of her. What she doesn't expect, is to land in an ancient civilization, one intent on keeping her--and her unproven powers. Even more frightening; a Mesoamerican deity who enjoys human snacks.
