Publisher's Summary
When what seems like a normal pit stop turns into more than just gas and food, a lost traveler finds himself searching for the truth of a 20-year-old mystery.
Detective Gino Canale doesn't believe in a hereafter, let alone ghosts looking for closure. But when his reoccurring dream implies that his grandparents' deaths might actually have been homicides, not to mention that he's hearing bells that don't exist and smelling a pipe when no one is smoking, he realizes he's either connecting to the other side - or going crazy.
And he's not sure which thought scares him more.

Detective Gino Canale is a determined homicide detective. He has long suspected that his grandparents’ deaths were not natural. He has reoccurring dreams that point to murder and now he is smelling a pipe and hearing bells that should only be vague recollections of his memories of his grandparents and the diner known as The Pit Stop.

There is another death in a nearby jurisdiction that has similar pattern to the death of his grandparents. The local file on the twenty-year old investigation has gone missing. Gino dives in to help the neighboring homicide detective dig up clues to solve the current case and the cold case.

Gino is a natural and likeable character. The writing moves along well and I enjoyed the mystery and paranormal elements. This was a short sample but I would be interested in reading more by this author. I recommend this to mystery buffs who would like a quick read or listen.

Audio Notes: Michelle Babb does a good job with the narration, providing distinct voices and accents for the characters. The narration made this an extra enjoyable, quick listen.

I received this from the narrator for an honest review. This adds to my Audio Challenge.
