McCoy is a master of his craft. --Ralph Cotton, USA Today bestselling author

In the Old West, legends die hard--and so do witnesses. But that won't stop psychic-turned-detective Ophelia Wylde from finding fresh graves, digging up clues, and catching wanted criminals--with a little help from the dead. . .

Dead Men Tell No Lies

The Civil War is over, and many a young widow has turned to spiritualism to contact their husbands on "the other side." But Ophelia Wylde won't be fooled twice. After wasting her money on a phoney psychic, she decides if she can't beat 'em, join 'em. She leaves New Orleans and heads West, selling her services as a spiritual medium who speaks to the dead. By the time she reaches Dodge City, business is booming. Except for a handsome but skeptical bounty hunter named Jack Calder, no one suspects Ophelia of running a con game--until an unfortunate "reading" of a girl who's still living exposes her to a townfull of angry customers. As punishment, the mob drags Ophelia to Boot Hill and buries her alive in a fresh grave overnight. That's when the dead start speaking. To her. For real. And for dead people, they've got lots to say. . .

"An entertaining romp with quirky characters that would make Mark Twain proud. McCoy has a gift for capturing the Old West in all its colorful and outrageous glory. I couldn't put this imaginative page-turner down." --Margaret Coel, author of Buffalo Bill's Dead Now

"Tightly drawn characters, a vile villain. . .satisfying. . .a compelling read." -- Publisher's Weekly on The Moon Pool

Orphelia Wylde, a spiritualist, is running from a mark in Chicago that she swindled. From her train window she sees a girl with her throat slit draped over a bronze tablet in Dodge City's boothill cemetery. She decides to stop to investigate when she is mistaken for another. The cover looks like a cozy, but this is anything but a cozy. There is cannibalism, a demon and humans turning into wolves.
