Unholy Magic (Downside Ghosts, Bk.2) : Being near-fatally poisoned by a con-artist psychic and then trapping a homicidal ghost is just another day on the job for Chess Putnam. Her magical and non-magical talents are used to expose those looking to profit from the world's unpleasant little poltergeist problem, as well as banish the real undead. But Chess has been extra busy these days, coping with a tiring new celebrity assignment on top of her own investigation: someone is murdering the prostitutes in Downside, and Chess is sure that it's not the work of a ghost. But to prove it, she must hunt down and confront a maniac, and walk a careful line between the two men in her life just as they - along with their ruthless gang-land employers - are moving closer to a catastrophic showdown. Someone is dealing in murder, sex, and the supernatural, and once again Chess finds herself right in the crossfire.
