Pandora English returns in The Skeleton Key

Pandora English returns in her third novel, The Skeleton Key, publishing December 1, 2012. In The Spider Goddess she faced her most formidable foe yet, but things are certainly not about to get easier for Pandora or for Spektor, the mysterious Manhattan suburb that does not appear on maps.

Here’s the first look at the cover and synopsis:

In the third Pandora English mystery, Pandora is still negotiating her double life as a lowly assistant at a New York fashion magazine with the reality that she has great supernatural powers and responsibilities.

With the full moon set to rise once again, Pandora has a very special date looming. Her beautiful spirit guide, Civil War soldier Lieutenant Luke, will be a flesh-and-blood man, if only for the night, and she hasn’t been able to stop thinking about it. But a chance encounter with playboy Jay Rockwell sees that very human attraction start all over again – even though Jay doesn’t remember their previous relationship, or the fact that Pandora saved him from a gang of ill-tempered undead supermodels.

Meanwhile, Pandora – with her special skeleton key – is slowly unlocking the mysteries of the haunted mansion where she lives with her great aunt Celia. What sinister experiments did the architect Dr Edmund Barrett conduct there before he died? Where is his laboratory? And what are the strange noises emanating from the basement?

On the centenary of the mysterious fire that supposedly killed Dr Barrett, he returns to the mansion. He has a message for Pandora. But he has brought with him a dark force that threatens to tear apart the delicate balance between the worlds of the dead and living…

    Really looking foward to this next book. Hope we find out a bit more on the Aunt as well. How come she is still so seemingly young? How long has she been the way she is? Why does she cover her face?
