Ever since her father died, kooky Gilda Joyce has been working hard to sharpen her psychic skills. She's determined to communicate with spirits from the Other Side and become a crack investigator of spooky, twisted mysteries. After wrangling an invitation to visit San Francisco relatives, Gilda discovers just how much her dreary, tight-lipped uncle and his strange, delicate daughter need her help to uncover the terrible family secret that has a tortured ghost stalking their home.
From poignant to hair-raising and hilarious, this is a behind-the-scenes, tell-all account of the very first case in the illustrious career of Gilda Joyce, Psychic Investigator.
"Zany, likable Gilda Joyce deserves a place right next to her inspiration, Harriet the Spy."-School Library Journal, starred review
"Gilda's earnest and wacky personality accompanied by her dry wit make this an amusing as well as suspenseful mystery." -Kirkus Reviews
