Karma Marx is married to Spider who is a cheating and devious man who she doesn't trust. Their marriage is on the brink of ending and to Karma this couldn't happen fast enough. Spider is into a lot of shady deals, but one particularly that stands out to Karma is having to ghost exterminate one of his business ventures so he could do what he wanted with the property. Karma makes an agreement with him that if she exterminates this house for him, he is to grant her the divorce she wants. He agrees to her terms.
When she arrives at the house hours later, things go completely out of control for her. As she is evaluating just how many spirits might be in the house she learns that the owner of this particular house, Adam Dirgesinger, still resides there and isn't happy that Spider stole the house practically right from under him. Adam gets so upset that he places a seal on the house for twelve hours. Now everyone in the house must co-exist for this time without any entry out and this ultimately seemed an impossible fate for everyone.
During all the squabbles going on, Spider goes downstairs to the basement with his partner, Meredith, both trying to find a way out of this crazy situation. One thing leads to another and Spider is murdered in the basement.
Who killed Spider and why? What gripe did they have with him that was so serious they actually killed him? Who else was in the basement besides Spider and Meredith?
This was an enjoyable read for me. There were quite a few characters that will continually keep you entertained throughout the entire story. It's a page turner murder mystery with quite a bit of humor splashed throughout and it will keep you guessing right up to the end who done it.
