June 8, 2010 - PRLog -- In the closing months of the 20th century, James McParland arrives in Boston to seek redemption. One hundred years earlier, he had joined The Pinkerton Agency and had quickly become its top detective—a man so feared by his opponents that they often committed suicide rather than fall into his hands. Although dead for more than eighty years, McParland’s reputation as “The Great Detective” preceded him as he reappears determined to earn eternal peace by helping the souls of those he tormented in life whose ghosts still walk among the living.
         
Far from just a ghost story, THE GHOST DETECTIVE is a superbly written thriller that propels the reader back and forth across centuries as human spirits collide with the spirit world in a tale of redemption, reconciliation, and the quest for everlasting peace.

“Thomas Lowenstein's The Ghost Detective is at once a brilliant work of fiction and an illuminating exploration of the truths that elude us in life and, perhaps, in death as well. With stark and powerful prose, this stunning first novel evokes an era beyond living memory, where the dead walk restlessly and the living search for meaning. Deftly shuttling the reader between centuries, Lowenstein's themes -- redemption, faith, honor and justice -- inform a compelling narrative filled with richly drawn characters that come vividly to life -- even after they're dead. With subtlety and grace, Thomas Lowenstein has created a fascinating world where life and death coexist without fear. This is a novel where those of us who still struggle for meaning in the madness can now find just a glimpse of hope.  

The Ghost Detective will haunt you long after you've read it; the only mystery is why you haven't already.”

-- David Bender, Host of: "Ring of Fire Radio;" Author of: "The Confession of O.J. Simpson: A Work of Fiction" and "Stand and Be Counted” (with David Crosby).
