Over a quarter of a century ago, the Seawitch set sail with four passengers and one crew.  The vessel never returned to the marina nor found; until now.  Twenty-seven years after the yacht vanished, in a Grey fog the Seawitch returns to the same dock in the Sound that it left from, but  with no one board and in terrible condition.

 

The insurance company hires Harper Blaine the Greywalker to investigate the “ghost ship.”  Seattle Detective Sergeant Rey Solis leads the police inquiry.  She is pleased that she will work with Solis who may be uncomfortable with the “creepy” that seems to come with Blaine cases, but always is professional.  They jointly explore the Seawitch; Harper and Solis find ritual symbols written in blood.  He focuses on what appears to be a murder while she follows clues that are as insidious but also arcane.

 

The latest fabulous Greywalker investigative urban fantasy (see Downpour) is a fabulous at sea “locked” yacht ghost story that hooks the audience from the moment the diverse detectives meet at the dock and never slows down as they work their respective cases.  Spellbinding throughout, readers will relish this entry as the Greywalker and Solis, who is slightly less stressed with the creepy, follow the clues to what happened to five people on board the Seawitch.
