Review; The Night Vanishing (Painter Mann #2) by Dick Wybrow

Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the mystery/paranormal novel The Night Vanishing (Painter Mann #2) by Dick Wybrow through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
After the events of The InBetween, dead private investigator Painter Mann goes to New Orleans to find clues about the identity of his murderer.

Instead, he becomes embroiled (you gotta watch out for getting embroiled, it can sneak up on you) in case involving two-headed monsters, voodoo witches and hundreds of missing ghosts.

He's also being "hunted" by the Ghost Wranglers, a popular cable TV show determined to find the ghost PI known as Painter Mann.

My Thoughts on the Book This was such a fun read. The plot and story was intiguing and the world building is well made. I also enjoyed Painter's integrity and sarcasm.

A fatal case of school spirit . . .

Kailyn Wilde, owner of the Abracadabra potion shop, feels some dread anticipating her ten-year high school reunion at the new hotel in New Camel-but it turns out even worse than she feared. Running into her very first boyfriend is pleasant enough. Chatting with Ashley-who still can't let go of a tragedy that happened on prom night-is a bit more uncomfortable. But the worst part comes when one of Kailyn's oldest friends is found dead in the ladies' room.

Soon this upstate New York town is in an uproar. And with some help from time-traveling wizard Merlin-who has adopted an unusual and alluring creature as his familiar-it's up to Kailyn to identify the alumnus most likely to commit murder . . .

Description from Goodreads
A dead ballplayer means foul play in Salem . . .

Field reporter Lee Barrett is not happy that her hours are being cut back at WICH-TV, although it is nice to spend more time volunteering with Aunt Ibby, a research librarian at Salem's main branch. But Lee's least favorite task is going up to the stacks, a spooky, seldom-frequented upper section of the library. On this day she has good reason to be afraid--she finds a dead man, surrounded by hundreds of scattered books and torn-out pages.

Her police detective beau, Pete Mondello, is soon on the scene, and the deceased is identified as a former minor league baseball player--and ex-con--named Wee Willie Wallace, who hasn't been seen in Salem for twenty years. With help from her …
