1970s America. A beautiful atheist activist is savagely murdered in her home.
Rice Channon, called the Ratcatcher by local law enforcement, is a police reporter who’s helped authorities find killers before. The cops say he has a unique gift for sniffing out the bad guys. Soon he's an unofficial part of the murder investigation.
Not everyone is happy about it. Not the chief of police. Not the mayor. Not Rice’s editor. Rice runs head-on into a world of faithless clergy, government corruption, embezzlement, drugs, and urban riots.
All the while, the spirit of the dead woman seems to be trying to tell him something. Or is it all in his head?
Racial tensions are rising. The city feels ready to burst into flame. And the murderer is probably not one of the usual suspects. Angry cops. Hired killers. Embezzlers. And an ex-girlfriend Rice just can’t let go.
If he’s lucky, his job is the only thing he’ll lose.
Ratcatcher, Be Still. A new paranormal mystery series by multiple B.R.A.G. Medallion awardee, Dennis Anthony.
