"Do you believe in ghosts, Mr. Hawke?" When a woman who died two years ago inexplicably reappears, private eye Johnny Hawke is immediately called upon to investigate. What emerges is an elaborate maze of deception and brutal murder. The case sees Johnny drawn into the world of the crooked Bernstein family, particularly the cruel and domineering Gina, who will allow no one to stand between her and her evil goal. As the danger closes in on him and escape seems increasingly impossible, Johnny begins to fear for the safety of those closest to him. Set during the Second World War, this is the latest gripping installment in the Johnny One Eye series.
