Renovations in a Savannah building expose a skeleton that had been buried and forgotten about for over a hundred years. It is immediately apparent that the person’s death was the result of foul play.

When the bones are removed and the mumbo-jumbo dark magic spell is broken, The Ghost of The Savannah Strangler rises up from the dead determined to squeeze the life out of the living with his creepy cold dead man’s fingers.

The police can’t capture him. The psychics can’t control him! He’s back from the dead causing hilarious mischief and mayhem as he evades justice, wrecks havoc, and has the best time of his deceased life.

Dead Man’s Fingers — the title sends shivers down the back and the content lives up to the name.

In Savannah, Georgia the Haints – or ghosts – are everywhere but they are thick on the ground (or under or above it) at the full moon.

When a fix-it man uncovers human bones in a store basement he unwittingly disturbs the resting place of the Savannah Strangler. The tenant on the top floor of the building decides to get rid of the ghost in the basement but she gets more than she bargained for when instead of banishing the haint, the fake medium releases him into the community.

The author takes us with the Strangler through the streets of Savannah where he eventually finds a body to inhabit. I believe the author meant this to be comical, and I found it very funny when the Strangler tried to come to terms with the modern way of living and dressing. His description as a big bald-headed dude who looked like he ate light bulbs for breakfast, covered in pink sequins, gold glitter, and aquamarine puff balls, and smelling really, really bad, follows him through the book and it made me smile each time I read it.

The scenes in the book came to life with each word I read and the characters from the student on the top floor and her friends, the policeman, the tourists and the Savannah Strangler were all easily pictured especially the cold dead fingers trying to strangle Victorian prostitutes, which of course no longer existed.

The hilarity continues right to the end of the book. Certainly a good read as far as I’m concerned, and very entertaining.
