The Ghost of Truckee River by Brent Kroetch
When rich and eccentric rock legend Blake Garrett offers private detective Kyle "Ham" McCalister an astonishing fee to find his predicted would-be killer, Ham is not even sure he wants the case. His reluctance is based upon Blake’s belief in a trusted psychic who predicts that there will be three attempts on his life before the actual assassination occurs. Ham, who has a deep seated distrust of most people and their motives anyway, feels certain that Blake’s psychic is a phony, that there is no murder to prevent, and that Blake is even more naive and gullible than he is rich and famous . Once he arrives in Hawaii to meet with the superstar, however, Ham is confronted by madness and murder-and a self-proclaimed ghost who won’t leave him alone.
