Summary, etc.:
"Carolyn Haines's Lady of Bones is the next novel in the series that Kirkus Reviews characterizes as "Stephanie Plum meets the Ya-Ya Sisterhood" featuring sassy Southern private investigator Sarah Booth Delaney. It's Halloween season in Mississippi as Sarah Booth and the gang gather to decorate and gush over Tinkie's new baby, Maylin. Sarah Booth is just about to refresh the cocktails when she hears a knock on the door and opens it to find a woman named Frankie, distraught at the disappearance of her daughter Christa, a young journalist. Christa had been investigating the disappearance of young women in New Orleans over a five-year period-one every year around Halloween. Now Christa herself is missing, and Frankie fears it may be connected to a cult based in the Garden District, called People of Eternity. People of Eternity are known to have far-reaching connections which Frankie worries may reach as high as law enforcement. Refusing to contact the authorities, she turns to Delaney Detective Agency as her only hope. Despite initial reservations, Sarah Booth accepts the case, which takes her on a journey to a secret underworld of beguiling cult leaders, witchcraft, and potentially human sacrifice. She'll have to keep her wits about her if she wants to crack this case...and make it home alive"-- Publisher's description.

    Sarah Booth Delaney and her PI partner, Tinkie Bellcase Richmond, are looking forward to the first Halloween with Tinkie's new baby. In the midst of a decorating party with their eclectic group of friends in the Mississippi Delta town of Zinnia, Frances, a friend of Sarah Booth's long-deceased mother, arrives to ask their assistance in finding her daughter, Christa, missing in New Orleans. As they talk, Tinkie realizes her high-school classmate, Pouty, might be involved in the cult of immortality that Christa was investigating. The partners split up, Tinkie staying home doing research and pumping Pouty, Sarah Booth heading to New Orleans with her boyfriend, county-sheriff Coleman. Once in New Orleans, they are drawn into the cult's shadowy world, quickly learning they can trust no one. With all things pointing to a blood sacrifice by the cult on Halloween, they call in all their friends, including Jinty, the family ghost, hoping to find Christa and her roommate, who was also taken by the cult, before it's too late. An entertaining romp for devotees of the irrepressible Sarah Booth. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
