DB and Jesse from the Eye Spy books are back, and things are going well for DB Black Investigations, and DB himself. Business is, while not exactly booming, humming along nicely and there's finally enough money coming in to hire a new full-time secretary, allowing DB to focus on the cases, and his ghostly lover Jesse. Things are looking up with Jesse as well, as every day they get a little bit better at this human-ghost relations thing. Their latest client, Duke, is a bit of a jerk, but he's got plenty of money to burn, along with a bad case of being haunted by his deceased mother. DB and Jesse soon discover that the old lady is trying to protect her money rather than her son, and she isn't going to go gently into the light and what lies beyond for the dead. To further complicate DB and Jesse's lives, DB's mother shows up from out of town, armed with much love and lots of questions about DB's personal life. Not only that, she'd love nothing more than to set her son up with a few nice boys she knows who are also single. What's a man with a ghost lover to do?
