DEAD & BUSY Series by Kfir Luzzatto ➜ #BookTour #Giveaway

Accidental Lazarus 
Dead & Busy Episode 1 
by Kfir Luzzatto 
Genre: Humorous Noir, Supernatural Mystery

It is sort of annoying having dead people dropping by at all hours... 

A paranormal detective like Dave Callaghan has already seen everything, but he never expected to find a presumed dead mobster drinking scotch in his armchair. He is definitely unhappy when he (it?) engages him to find out who shot him. But the worse is yet to come; Dave’s girlfriend gets involved and the real trouble begins.

Episode 1 of the DEAD & BUSY series will keep you laughing to the (bitter) end.

"Dave Callaghan is not here to bring you profound, life-changing thoughts; only quick, unadulterated fun."

Phantom Lover 
Dead & Busy Episode 2

Why Do All These Deadies Keep Flocking Around Dave? 

"It was bad enough, I can assure you, finding a half-naked ectoplasm sitting at my desk, but she had to talk nonsense too . . ." 

Dave Callaghan is used to having ghosts drop by uninvited at all hours. But this time he is in for a new experience, and you must get ready for a good laugh! 

Episode 2 of the DEAD & BUSY series - the one with the hooker. 

Dead & Busy Episode 3

A Mouse That Keeps Reciting Poetry to You, Is a Pest 

When white mice plague a short-tempered mobster, he hires Dave Callaghan to find out where they are coming from. The mobster wants to know why the mice wake him up in the middle of the night to recite "Mary had a little lamb" to him. 

Dave is used to dealing with ghosts of every description, but this time he is facing a complex conspiracy that involves the government and a lascivious ghost. 

Episode 3 of the DEAD & BUSY series - the one with the Aussie ghost sailor. 

The Accountant 
Dead & Busy Book 4

In Which the Accountant Disappears With the Bank Codes 

What can be more maddening for a businessman, than to have his trusted accountant disappear with all the bank access codes? Well, discovering that he has eloped with the ghost of a prostitute surely makes it worse. 

The need to walk into a ghostly brothel doesn't put Dave off. He even befriends one of the girls there and fun is had by all. 

Episode 4 of the DEAD & BUSY series - the one with the little ghostly whorehouse. 

Joe wants revenge
Dave well Dave needs a little less chaos and a lot more air freshener

Dave is a private investigator and a bonafied medium.
His personality is questionable - one minute he is singing the praises of his girlfriend and the next he is acting like she is an ornament. There were also a couple of scenes that IMO he felt even slimier than I imagined Joe was when he wasn't decaying on the furniture.

Joe is or was a mobster who should be cooling his heels at the morgue - but he's not he is seeking out revenge and furthering his education. I liked Joe. He sort of grows on you after a bit.

Liz leaves a bit to be desired.

This reminds me a bit of the old black and white detective shows. The bad guy sitting behind the desk, a cigarette dangling from his lips while our detective narrates the scene with a deep tenor voice. The ditsy female assistant (girlfriend) that adds a touch of spice and comic relief.
An easily resolved who done it that leaves a few questions unanswered while stoically stamping the file case closed.

The story itself was fun.
A short read that at times was a bit jumpy but overall entertaining.
The series is set as a serial read so we are left with one case closed but some open questions.
The copy I read was comped
