Could a missing book be haunted? Dulcie Schwartz doesn't want to think so, but ever since it disappeared from the university, things have gone from bad to worse - one of her colleagues accused of homicide, and another revealed as an impostor. To top it all off, both the ghost cat Mr. Grey and the kitten Esme seem to have switched their allegiance to her boyfriend. Deprived of feline assistance, Dulcie must uncover the truth by herself, or else find herself on the hook for the theft - and murder.

"In the fourth Dulcie Schwartz mystery, the gothic studies graduate student has a lot on her plate: possible identity theft, murder accusations, a haunted manuscript, and pressure from her advisor to complete her dissertation. Tavia Gilbert navigates the ups and downs of Dulcie's life with a bright, upbeat tone that highlights Dulcie's resiliency and a changing pace and tone that draw out the drama in the mystery. Gilbert also lends credibility to the more supernatural aspects of the story, including Dulcie's ghost cat, Mr. Grey. The biggest treat in the narration is the mesmerizing British accent that Gilbert employs when delivering the passages related to Dulcie's dreams--which take on all the drama of the gothic novels Dulcie studies.
