Delia's Shadow by Jamie Lee Moyer

This book is set in San Francisco in 1915.   The Panama-Pacific International Exposition is the backdrop for the book.   The plot is a serial murder investigation surrounded by ghosts.

Delia Martin fled San Francisco after being plagued with ghosts.   Her return to her home is due to the insistence of a ghost.    Delia doesn't know why she sees ghosts and wonders why she can't communicate with them. 

The setting is post San Francisco earthquake and that somber experience carries through the book.   The exuberance of the time period is also featured.   The author does a superb job in painting the time period.

The mystery was well crafted with plenty of twists and turns.   Delia finds help in a mystic, two detectives and her best friend in weathering the attentions of both a serial killer and a wealth of ghosts.  She also finds herself emotionally attached and romantically inclined so there is a bit of a bite for each and every type of reader.

I highly recommend the book.
