Elle finds the body of her soon-to-be-ex husband, Charlie on her sofa, stabbed to death with her kitchen knife. Elle’s close friends stand by her through the difficult funeral, but Elle alone must face the loss of the man she’d loved. Except that the loss is not total–Charlie is still around. Elle feels his presence, smells his aftershave. Hears him accuse her of killing him. And even though she doesn’t believe in ghosts, she argues with him, asserting her innocence. Oddly, Elle has a gap in her memory; she can’t account for her activity during the time of his murder. As she tries to clear herself by finding out how Charlie died, she discovers that she had plenty of reason to kill him. Charlie had secr ets. Infidelity. Unsavory business associates. Involvement with an international organization of sex abusers. The more she learns, the more danger she faces. As unscrupulous people begin to fear she’ll expose them, Elle races against time to avoid arrest, fight off attackers, solve the murder, and make peace with Charlie’s spirit.

My Thoughts:

This book starts out with Elle and her ending her marriage with Charlie and going out with her friends who end up discussing how to do a man in.  Elle ends up bored at the bar and decides to head home.  When she finds her ex-husband to be dead on the sofa in her house with a knife.  Soon it becomes obvious that Elle is in trouble and has to figure out what is going on.  What an adventure this book takes you on with the ups and downs.  It’s a great thrilling ride that many would love to go on!
