A Barricade in Hell

Jaime Lee Moyer. Tor, $25.99 (336p) ISBN 978-0-7653-3183-0
Moyer’s ghost-busting sleuths of San Francisco (introduced in Delia’s Shadow) are back in fine form. Madam Isadora Bobet and her apprentice, Delia Ryan, are always surrounded by the shadows of the dead. Most of these shades are quickly sent on their way, but when the ghost of a persistent little girl invades Delia’s dreams, she knows that mystery is afoot. Is it a coincidence that her husband, Capt. Gabe Ryan of the SFPD, happens to be working on a murder case that is likely part of a series of ghastly slayings? How do the deaths and ghosts connect to Miss Effie Fontaine, an evangelist for peace who recently arrived in San Francisco? It’s going to take courage, quick thinking, and stout hearts, for Delia and her team to solve the tangled mess of clues in front of them. Moyer has definitely upped her game. Agent: Tamar Rydzinski, Laura Dail Literary Agency. (June)
