About the Author:

Helen Chappell lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and covers the waterfront in fiction and nonfiction. The author of three previous Sam Wescott and Hollis Ball mystery novels, Ghost of a Chance, Dead Duck, and Slow Dancing with the Angel of Death, she has been awarded the Manderly Prize and the Jane Austen Society of Maryland Award. She has also received grants from the Maryland State Arts Council and the Sumner T. McKnight Foundation. Helen Chappell has also written for The Baltimore Sun and The Washington Post, and her journalistic credits include a Maryland-Delaware Press Association Award and the E. A. Emmart Prize.

From the Inside Flap:

Until someone starts killing off his impersonators, one by one...

As a reporter for a local newspaper on Maryland's Eastern Shore, Hollis Ball sees more of life than most. As an amateur sleuth, she also sees more of death...especially since her partner is a ghost.

Sam Wescott, Hollis's living-impaired ex-husband, is prone to materialize at awkward moments--like when Hollis is out on a date. But he's indispensable at a crime scene. And when an Elvis impersonator, in town for a gala contest, is murdered at a sleazy motel, Hollis needs Sam's divine intervention. Her ne'er-do-well godfather, Albie Lydekker, flew in from Vegas just to emcee the Elvis competition...and he made an unwitting Hollis one of the judges. Now, surrounded by sequined singers, Hollis is wondering if she is also a patsy...as an unpopular gambling referendum, a missing mobster, and an old memory set her up to shake, rattle, and die.
