Silver Zombie: Delilah Street: Paranormal Investigator by Carole Nelson Douglas: Zombies and Witches and Vamps . . . Oh, My!

Unfortunately, when it comes to finding trouble, there’s no place like home. . . . It doesn’t take long before Delilah realizes she’s not in Vegas anymore. Zombie cowboys and spectral cattle drives are kicking up dust, the local weather girls are total witches who forecast perfect storms, and some Hollywood fanatic is recasting zombies as the greatest stars of the silver screen. And speaking of silver, Delilah’s special affinity for the all-purpose monster-repellent leads her posse straight down a silver brick road—and into a notso- fun house of mirrors—putting her face-to-face with her dicey past and a mystery woman named Lilith, who’s a real dead ringer for Delilah. The key word being dead. (Nov. 30)

    Great to see Delilah’s latest on your list! Green seems to be a hot paranormal cover color now, but the color REALLY fits Silver Zombie’s content. Everything on the cover does, including the gown. 🙂
