A Rest for Lucy by A M Baggash
Lucy has been murdered and buried in the cellar. When the Shamiry family move into Lucy's house, she decides not to drive them out like earlier buyers, but instead befriends their fourteen-year-old son, Rayan. Lucy's killer is still within reach and Lucy wants justice. She's only been dead a few years, so there's a good chance of getting it if she can find someone to help her, and Rayan seems like a good candidate. Can Rayan and his girlfriend, Jennifer, get the information Lucy wants to catch her killer? Can they get justice for her dad too, so she can rest in peace? Given Jennifer's connection to the murderer, there's a good chance, but they have to turn detective and follow a trail that's been cold for several years now, to solve two murders nobody knows have happened. A ghost story with a difference!
