Book Review. When New Orleans haunted walk tour guide Nikki DuMonde wakes up to find one of her employees at the foot of her bed asking for help, she thinks it’s a bad dream and goes back to sleep. But it was no simple nightmare. One of her employees has been murdered, and Nikki is determined to find out who killed her and why in “Ghost Walk” by Heather Graham. Her investigation leads her smack into the tall, dark and handsome Brent Blackhawk, a paranormal investigator who can communicate with the dead. He’s tracking an eerily similar murder of an undercover FBI agent, and he’s certain the two crimes are related. Brent tries to protect Nikki because the killer is stalking her, too. As the two work to unravel the case, they fall in love, but Brent suspects Nikki’s friends. Suddenly she doesn’t know who to trust… not her friends…not Brent…not even the two victims—whose ghosts keep visiting her in the dead of the night.
