2018’s Spanish Mission is the second volume in K. B. Spangler’s Hope Blackwell series of novels1.
Seeking to distract her cyborg friend Mary “Mare” O’Murphy from the disquieting revelation that ghosts exist and are quite visible to Enhanced Americans, Hope Blackwell takes Mare and their talking koala pal Speedy on a road trip to Vegas.
This bold gambit sets Hope and Mare up for an encounter with paranormal impresario Eli Tellerman of the reality show Spooky Solutions . Tellerman knows Hope for the psychic that she is. In short order he manages to strong-arm her into joining his latest venture.
It’s an exciting foray into the desert in search of ancient treasure, pirate ships lost in an arid wasteland, and (of course) ghosts.
