Nicki Styx sees ghosts. Since a near-death experience a few months ago she has acquired two things, the ability to see the dead and a wonderful boyfriend, the doctor who treated her in the emergency room.
Kelly Charon is Nicki’s twin sister. They were given up for adoption at birth and separated. She is also Nicki’s boyfriend’s soon-to-be ex-wife. She and Nicki are the complete opposite in personality. She has only just started to see the dead.
Kelly and her birth mother were on their way to find Nicki when they were involved in a car accident. Lila was killed and Kelly injured. Lila’s spirit went to Nicki for help finding her injured daughter, but that is only the start of complications for Nicki and her sister. It turns out that the girls have a grandmother who wants them to go to Savannah. Oh, and the devil wants their souls.
This second Nicki Styx story is just as involving as the first. Nicki and Joe’s relationship has grown even though Nicki has yet to tell Joe she loves him. The Devil, aka Sammy, has a great time planting discord in the relationship. Kelly and her poor me attitude wore on me at times; she has all of Nicki’s stubbornness and none of her style. Bijoux and Odessa are unusual characters to say the least. The Spider character made a nice romantic interest for Kelly, but the most compelling character was Sammy and his plaything, known as Psycho Barbie. Nicki tries as usual to be selfish, but is driven to do the right thing. Kelly seems to be the opposite at times, selfless on the surface, but is really self-centered. The plot has some very interesting twists and turns and I could not put it down for a minute.
