Nightwalker by Heather Graham

Title: Nightwalker

Author: Heather Graham

Published: Mira, 2009

First Line: "Tension was high around the table, but then, there were thousands of dollars strewn out across the board, represented by colourful plastic chips."

Summary: Jessy Sparhawk has seen firsthand how gambling can ruin people's lives. But one night, desperate for money, she places the bet that will change her life forever. Just as she's collecting her winnings, a man stumbles through the crowd, a knife protruding from his back, and crashes into her, pinning her to the craps table.Hired to investigate the murder, private detective Dillon Wolf finds himself fascinated by the gorgeous redhead who'd been trapped beneath the victim - and by the single word the dying man had whispered in her ear. Indigo. What neither of them realizes is that the nightmare is only just beginning. Because bodyguard Tanner Green may have been killed by that knife, but his angry ghost isn't going anywhere - not without vengeance. Now, literally caught between the living and the dead, Dillon and Jessy have no choice but to forge ahead together. Their investigation will take them from the glitz of the Vegas strip into the dealings of casino magnate Emil Landon, the man who signs both their paychecks, and out into the desert to a ghost town called Indigo, where past and present come together in a search for gold. Years ago, blood was shed on that very ground, and now it looks as if history is about to repeat itself, with the living and the dead facing off for possession of a fortune, and Dillon and Jessy fighting not only to stay alive but for the chance to build a future.

Review: After reading a book by Heather Graham I decided to read another one.  I'm glad I picked up Nightwalker because it was really interesting.

I love mysteries and I love ghost stories so Nightwalker, having both, was a good book to read.  The ghosts in this book weren't as scary as most ghosts in other media but they were quite interesting.  I liked the different take on ghosts.

The mystery in Nightwalker was a good one.  It was really interesting because how the man got murdered seemed odd so it was really interesting to find out how it had happened and why.

I really enjoyed reading Nightwalker and I think that if you enjoy books about ghosts and murder mysteries then you'll enjoy Nightwalker.  My one warning is that it has a little bit of adult content. Aside from that, it is a pretty enjoyable read.
