Despite the wishes of her overprotective fiancé, Sarah Booth Delaney can’t give up her detective work—no matter how dangerous it becomes. On this case, avoiding danger might be impossible—she’s on the trail of a porn-star-turned-psychic operating from a haunted estate on the edge of town. Medium Sherry Cameron promises to reunite grieving family members with their dearly departed, but it seems vaguely suspicious that Sherry will only accept emotionally vulnerable—and tremendously wealthy—clients. Aging billionaire Marjorie Littlefield fits the profile perfectly—her daughter died in a tragic accident as a young girl, she’s been estranged from her son for decades, and she’s planning to leave her considerable inheritance to her cat.

Convinced she’s uncovered a scheme to separate a lonely woman from her fortune, Sarah Booth talks her way onto the estate as a maid, where she finds Marjorie and several other wealthy eccentrics ready to commune with the dead. Between chores, Sarah explores the estate, mingles with the other staff … and finds a few dead bodies. But who is the killer? 

With spooks and charlatans around every corner, Sarah Booth is the only PI in the southlands who can put an end to this elaborate scam.

    " Carolyn Haines did it again with the page turner of a mystery with all the characters one has grown to enjoy. Having the characters act as personal maids was great and it added to the humor and twists of the story. "

    " I love Carolyn Haines, and I love this series! Every year I eagerly await the next chapter in the life of Sarah Booth Delany, her ghost Jitty, and her various friends and colleagues! Her latest book, Bonefire of the Vanities, is one more jewel in her crown of achievements. She slowly lures you into the story until you find yourself immersed in intrigue to the point of oblivion from the outside world. This is done with characters that appear so real you feel as though you are in a circle of personal friends. Each book has a more creative plot than the last and Bonefire of the Vanities is no exception. "

    " Having to push my way through to complete it. Didn't hold my attention "

    " I have read all of this series and always look forward to a new title. I especially liked this one as the plot essentially stayed in one physical location, an upscale think tank, complete with a medium who performs senances and of course a wealthly woman about to be deprived of her fortune by her son. Lots of twists and turns,two murders and Sheriff Coleman Peters to the rescue of Sarah Booth Delaney. Yes this is a fairly predictible series, but I love it for the fact that it takes place in Sunflower County Mississippi which really exists and the author always has some local details in the story. Makes me feel like I am actually there and yes I will wait patiently for the next title. But please more Coleman Peters and not Graf, Sarah Booth's finance. "
