Free Book Friday!


Delia’s Shadow by Jaime Lee Moyer


It is the dawn of a new century in San Francisco and Delia Martin is a wealthy young woman whose life appears ideal. But a dark secret colors her life, for Delia’s most loyal companions are ghosts, as she has been gifted (or some would say cursed) with an ability to peer across to the other side. — Since the great quake rocked her city in 1906, Delia has been haunted by an avalanche of the dead clamoring for her help. Delia flees to the other side of the continent, hoping to gain some peace. After several years in New York, Delia believes she is free…until one determined specter appears and she realizes that she must return to the City by the Bay in order to put this tortured soul to rest. It will not be easy, as the ghost is only one of the many victims of a serial killer who was never caught. A killer who after thirty years is killing again. And who is now aware of Delia’s existence.

    I love the sound of this book. I’m thinking, of course, that the serial killer was the Zodiac killer. My husband and I lived near the park where some of the first victims were killed. I’m throwing my hat in the ring for this book. I have been a PBS member for some time now and have sent and received many, many wonderful books. Thanks to you and good luck to me. Jackie
