Ghost Trilogy is a ghost story, set in Chicago Black Belt, happening from early September 1926 to late April 1927.
The story is mostly set inside the Old Shelter, a speakeasy hidden in a building which has been haunted by a ghost for some one hundred years. Adam Brailsfield owns the club… and the ghost. The ghost has been connected to his family for a few generations and he fears it’s turning him mad as – rumour has it – it did to his grandfather. Sinéad O’Flanagan was entrusted with a coin by a friend, so she could give that coin to a niece of the giver. But the coin seems to drag her again and again to the Old Shelter. Michael and Blood meet Sinéad on a night out and they all end up at the Old Shelter. Blood and Michael have a strong bond with the worlds of spirits. They realise the ghost is not merely haunting the place, it seeks revenge over the Brailsfields, and the power of that curse is set deep inside Sinéad’s coin. If they let themselves be involved with the ghost, the curse might bend their life too – but they may also be able to break it.
The trilogy is complete, although the three novels are at different stages of revision. I’m currently working at the final revision of the first book.
