Kincaid Strange, not your average voodoo practitioner, is back in the freshly imagined and hugely entertaining second installment of Kristi Charish's urban fantasy series. Kincaid Strange cannot catch a break.

After dealing with a spate of paranormal murders, there's barely time to recuperate - let alone sleep in - before there's a new problem in Kincaid's world of paranormal activity. When her roommate, Nathan Cade - the ghost of a grunge-rocker with a pathological lack of self-control - comes home bound to a dead body, it's up to Kincaid to figure out how to free him. Ideally before her new mentor, Gideon, a powerful sorcerer's ghost, discovers that Nate is trapped in the body he'd coveted for himself. 

When Aaron, a Seattle cop on the afterlife beat - and Kincaid's ex - calls her in to help out with a cold case, she takes the chance to mend fences with the police department. The problem: they want to interview Nate's ghost, which she can't produce. Then people from Nate's past start showing up dead, and what's killing them doesn't seem to be human. And the way it's killing them is especially brutal. 

Nate's hiding something, but he's Kincaid's friend and she wants to help him. But she also wants to stay alive...

Reviews for Lipstick Voodoo (#2 Kincaid Strange)

Advance Praise for Lipstick Voodoo Lipstick Voodoo is a fan-friggin-tastic page-turner of a sequel that breathes new life into the undead. It's slick, smart and seriously fun. I'm already waiting for the next book. --Peter Clines, author of the Ex-Heroes series Praise for the Kincaid Strange Novels If you're a fan of Buffy Summers and Sookie Stackhouse, you'll definitely like Kincaid Strange. --Canadian Living The Voodoo Killings is such a spectacular mix of urban fantasy and mystery it kept me up to two in the morning. Give me more Kincaid Strange. --Faith Hunter, New York Times bestselling author of the Jane Yellowrock series Kristi Charish grabs the zombie novel by the throat and drags it back to square one, creating a voodoo zombie mystery that is a fresh and fantastic take on a whole genre. A must read! --Peter Clines, author of The Fold, 14 and the Ex-Heroes series What a rush! Highly entertaining, original, and brimming with wit--and zombies in closets--I loved The Voodoo Killings. Can't wait for the next! --Julie E. Czerneda, author of This Gulf of Time and Stars This was an absolute delight to read. With a smart, cynical hero and zombies whose morals are as gray as the brains they snack on, The Voodoo Killings offers a fun and creepy new world--or two--to get lost in. --Patrick Weekes, author of the Rogues of the Republic series Charish writes a compelling tale that blends together supernatural and horror elements. . . . The characters are interesting, narrative moves along at a nice pace, and Charish's prose and balance of mystery and horror make the book well worth the read. --Flickering Myth (UK)
