An entire city is at stake, so the ladies get busy. When Boulder City is inundated with strange occurrences, the local, state, and federal authorities come up emptyhanded. Motivated by heart-wrenching appeals on Sue's blog, Ellen and her friends offer to help. But the pressure's on like never before when their paranormal investigation is met with scrutiny at every turn, especially when they discover, with the help of a one-hundred-year-old ghost, a sickening coverup from the days of the building of the Hoover Dam. "A history buff's delight! This was such an interesting book. I got hooked in straight away and was rooting for the 3 main ladies the whole time. I loved the history that was guiding this story. Haunted twists were awesome. Another great read from the wonderful Eva Pohler."--Shawnae ★★★★★ "Our intrepid heroines commit themselves to uncovering the whole truth behind the deaths of the many workers who "died to make the desert bloom". The story is captivating, the characters are fun and relatable, and the underlying mission of these wonderful ladies to help all people to the best of their abilities, regardless of whether they are living or long dead, is uplifting. I will definitely be on board for their next adventure."--txdoc, Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★ "I really enjoyed this book, as I do all of Eva Pohlers' work. Ellen, Tanya & Sue have done it again. Solved the mystery, put things to rights and onto their next adventure. They never give up, even in the face of adversity. These women are true "ghost healers". If you're into the supernatural, mystery and intrigue and feel good endings - the 'Mystery House Series' books are definitely for you!"--Jenny ★★★★★ "I loved the entire book, honestly. Pohler creates an engaging group of characters with real flaws that still manage to be great people. I love the entire mystery house series."--CHadley ★★★★★ "I was hooked from the beginning and I found the history of the Hoover Dam to be very interesting. The author does a fabulous job to add some spooky stuff in her writing as well as weaving history into her story and make it all a very interesting read. I highly recommend this series if you enjoy a mixture of paranormal activity with a hint of history. The author does a beautiful job telling the story."--Laura Martinez ★★★★★ Grab your copy to begin this ghostly adventure today!

The paranormal researcher and author of Haunted Nevada presents “a macabre compilation of the eeriest haunts of Sin City” (Kalila K. Smith, author of New Orleans Ghosts, Voodoo, and Vampires). With its world-famous casinos and extravagant floor shows, Las Vegas is known as one of America’s liveliest cities. And true to its reputation, even the dead are especially active here. In Haunting Las Vegas, Janice Oberling offers a rare look beyond the neon glitz and into reports of ghostly sightings and lurid histories of The City that Never Sleeps. Spirits of all kinds haunt the halls and corridors of the Las Vegas Strip, including apparitions of its most famous residents. There are many tales of Elvis idling backstage at the Hilton and Liberace appearing at his favorite restaurant, Carluccio’s. The legendary mobster Bugsy Segal is known to make spectral appearances, as is Shoney, the Luxor Hotel’s once-celebrated show elephant.

The One-Eyed Jack and the Suicide King: personifications of the city of Las Vegas-its history, mystery, mystical power, and heart . . . When the Suicide King vanishes-possibly killed-in the middle of a magic-rights turf war started by the avatars of Los Angeles, a notorious fictional assassin, and the mutilated ghost of Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel, the King's partner, the One-Eyed Jack, must seek the aid of a bizarre band of legendary and undead allies: the ghosts of Doc Holliday and John Henry the steel-driving man; the echoes of several imaginary super spies, decades displaced in time; and a vampire named Tribute, who bears a striking resemblance to a certain long-lost icon of popular music. All stories are true, but some stories are truer than others.
