Loose Ends, by Terri Reid, sees private investigator Mary O'Reilly look into the accidental drowning of an Illinois politician's campaign aide in 1984. The book's set in the present day, but she's called in because she can see ghosts, and the politician's wife is convinced that she's being haunted. While investigating the case, she's sidetracked into investigating a local child's disappearance, doubling her workload in this book.

In a way, the story reminded me of the TV show Monk. Like Monk, O'Reilly's viewed as the local kook (word's got out about her skills), she doesn't actually do much investigating (she interviewed one person in the first 60% of the book), and not much actually happens, but it still feels like it's moving forward at a fair old lick.
