In real-time, it’s October–Haunted Happenings time in the Witch City of Salem, Massachusetts–when revelers from everywhere congregate for Salem’s special month-long holiday celebration. In book time, it’s October too, in the latest entry in my Witch City Mystery series Now You See It –and there’s a dead body beneath those colorful fall leaves!

Newly married Lee and her detective husband Pete Mondello have moved into their new home on Winter Street and Lee has just been dubbed “Historical Documentary Chief Executive” at WICH-TV. The fancy title means that she’ll be reporting on Salem’s brand-new International Museum–featuring artifacts from Salem’s long-ago days as a shipping capital. But when the driver of a truckload of antiquities turns up dead under a pile of fall leaves, it’s not quite the kind of challenge Lee expected.

Before long, Lee and Pete are dredging up clues along with a hardy crew of helpers, including Lee’s librarian aunt Ibby, Lee’s best friend and practicing witch, River North–and of course the clairvoyant cat–O’Ryan. But when a ship model in the collection appears to be haunted, Lee will have to dive into her own treasure trove of psychic gifts before a killer comes to the surface to strike again.
