Dying for the Past
by Tj O’Connor

…love this series it really pulls you in… Definitely a great new series I will soak up as much as possible!
~Community Bookstop

The end of the book was such a hoot. You tore from one event to the next, all of it culminating in the big bang ending. I wanted to read the end, yet I didn’t want the story of Tuck and his gang to be over.
Laura’s Ramblins and Reviews

Dying for the Past is a great mystery filled with so many twists and turns that you’ll swear you were riding a roller coaster.
~Sapphyria’s Book Reviews

This book is a story that is full of suspense, twists and a little ghost thrown in.
~Deal Sharing Aunt

I enjoyed his writing style as the book just seemed to flow. Another thing I liked about this book was that it was fast paced which made reading it very easy.
~Griperang’s Bookmarks

This book moved at a really fast pace which is perfect when it comes to a mystery. I hate when there is too much down time in these types of books. I loved the characters and how well fleshed out they were, erm, even when they didn’t have flesh anymore.
~A Chick Who Reads

Dying for the Past is a enjoyable romp of a read.
~Back Porchervations

This story was just plain fun for me to read. The mystery is spot on, with twists and different suspects to keep you guessing until the end. I’m a big fan of the author’s writing style. I cannot wait to read more from TJ O’Connor.

Dying for the PastDying for the Past
(A Gumshoe Ghost Mystery)

2nd in Series
Paperback: 408 pages
Publisher: Midnight Ink (January 8, 2015)
ISBN-13: 978-0738742069


Dying is not for the faint of heart . . .
. . . Neither is the murder of a mysterious philanthropist with ties to the Russian mob and 1939 gangsters.

At an A-list charity ball organized by his wife, Angela, former detective Oliver “Tuck” Tucker is doing his best to prove that ghosts know how to have a good time—until a man is murdered in cold blood on the dance floor.
Never one to let a mystery go unsolved, Tuck is on the case with help from Angela and his former police-detective partners. Together, they must be the first to read “the book”—deceased gangster Vincent Calabrese’s journal that names names and reveals the dirty secrets of several modern-day spies.

As Tuck learns the book’s secrets, he begins to unravel his own family’s wayward past, leading to the question—is being a ghost hereditary? Even while chasing a killer, the biggest challenge Tuck must conquer is how to be back amongst the living . . . but not one of them.
