Zoe can travel astrally, out of her body. She hires herself and her talent out and it's a pretty good moneymaker that's gained her at least one devoted client. Until one day she seems something weird in the astral plane, someone else who seems to be able to do what she does. Only that someone else commits murder and knows Zoe was a witness. ( )

I absolutely loved Wraith and Zoe, she is reckless, irreverent and funny and I'm kicking myself for waiting do long to read it! How can you not love a heroine who admits she's not the brightest bulb in the sign? One who talks to herself and has the unfortunate tendency to let her mouth run away with her at the worst moments.

Zoe is operating blind, when it comes to her ability or the paranormal world. Most of what she has learned comes from trial and error and she often takes stupid risks, but since she doesn't know anything about Travellers, she has no other way except to throw herself into dangerous situations in an attempt to discover the truth about her own abilities and the paranormal world she finds herself in, despite being out of her depth on more than one occasion.

Zoe often finds herself relying on family and friends for support and information though she is hesitant about putting them in danger. Her mother, Nona seems to know more than she is letting on about Zoe's abilities and the paranormal, and misguidedly thinks she is protecting her by keeping her in the dark.

Phaedra Weldon deftly draws you into Zoe's world until you are completely sucked in and leaves you wanting more. The first book is a great start to the series and I've immediately ordered the second one, I can't wait to discover more about the can of paranormal worms opened in Wraith. ( )

It says a lot when you can't get through more than 20 pages of a book. The premise is really interesting; the writing? Sucks. It's in first person and reads like a 15 year old and not a 20-something year old. I tried to stick with it but I just couldn't, which is a shame because I was looking forward to this book. ( )

Horrible. One star is too much. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0441014976, Paperback)

First in an excitingly different and new paranormal series. Zo‘ Martinique has turned her unusual ability into a career. When she's traveling, she can't be seen which makes her an ideal professional snoop. Industrial espionage, surveillance, whatever. But one night things get out of hand while she's outof- body. She witnesses a murder and a soul stealing, and discovers she has unwelcome company: Trench- Coat, a ghostly killer who can see and hurt her.

Teaming up with a blue-eyed police detective, she tries to solve the case and improve her love life. She also enlists the support of her psychic mother and the ghostly couple who haunt her house. And with murderers, kidnappers, and a desperate ex-porn star involved, Zo‘ needs all the help she can get.

"Zoe Martinique was just your average, single female, past 25, looking for love and/or exciting job opportunities. Until life handed her the dubious ability to travel outside of her body at will - which she turned into a career, hiring herself out as a literal spook. Industrial espionage, domestic surveillance, you name it - when she's traveling she can see but can't be seen." "Then one night things get out of hand while she is out-of-body: Zoe witnesses a murder. What's worse, the killer is also a Traveler - and he most definitely not only sees her, but tries to pursue her." "To save herself, Zoe must somehow guide the very handsome detective assigned to the case to the truth without revealing herself. And with the help of her semi-psychic mom, a pair of gay ghosts, and her best friend (a Goth techno witch), she also has to figure out exactly who - and what - the murderer is, before he finds her and puts an end to her traveling - permanently."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
