From the back of the book:
At the end of life, there is death. Only, sometimes, the dead just won't go away. THese are the ghosts.
Now, some of these ghosts have learned to take on mortal guise again, for short periods of time. They walk the earth once more, pretending to be human.
They even have jobs.
But why go back to being a baker or a carpenter? These ghosts crave adventure, excitement, intrigue -- some place where their special "skills" will be appreciated.
And they've found the perfect career.
