Jackie Lyons investigates a father's mysterious death, in the second installment of Jeff Crook's ghostly mystery series.

When photographer and former Memphis police detective Jackie Lyons finds Sam Loftin's lifeless body in the same location where his daughter died five years earlier, there's no reason to think he didn't kill himself, too. No reason, except Jackie has just seen Sam's ghost act out the last violent moments of his life.

In investigating his murder, Jackie is drawn into a tumultuous battle between wealthy and powerful suburbanites and a charismatic preacher trying to serve the poor and homeless. But a deeper mystery lurks beneath the petty rivalries and jealousies of a gated community, one that stretches back into the distant past and reaches out to snare the youngest of this generation. A secret so dark, it can only be protected by "The Covenant."

Review:

“In Crook’s impressive second Jackie Lyons mystery . . . Jackie is a compellingly flawed lead, and Crook convincingly incorporates the supernatural into a nicely hard-edged noir.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Jackie is a strong heroine ... Paranormal mystery buffs and readers who miss Charlaine Harris’s 'Harper Connelly' stories will enjoy getting acquainted with this unusual sleuth." --Library Journal

“Crook brings the world of the dead and the living together perfectly in this captivating mystery starring one of the most wonderful, unlikely protagonists I've come across. You will love her, not in spite of her faults and demons, but because of them.” ―Jennifer McMahon, New York Times bestselling author of Promise Not to Tell and Don't Breathe a Word, on The Sleeping and the Dead

“A fun, spooky ride.” Tom Franklin, Edgar Award-winning author of Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, on The Sleeping and the Dead

“[Crook's] first mystery sets a high standard.” Associated Press on The Sleeping and the Dead

“A brave but deeply flawed heroine. A promising series kickoff.” Kirkus Reviews on The Sleeping and the Dead


"Fans of mysteries, hard-boiled women, and juicy ghost stories will surely enjoy The Covenant."-Chapter 16
