We at Lucky Bat Books are excited to announce the long-awaited release of mystery writer N.M. Cedeño’s third novel, The Walls Can Talk.

* * *
Not all is well in a home that seems straight out of a fairy tale . . .
The Hanovers inherited an ancient Irish castle . . . that’s been moved to central Texas. But once they move in, they find not all is well in a home that seems straight out of a fairy tale. When things are moved in the middle of the night, is the explanation treasure-hunting teenagers or someone more malicious?
With a terrifying ghostly presence haunting their days and break-ins threatening their nights, the Hanovers reach out to a private detective, the famed Montgomery of Montgomery Investigations, and his employees at Bad Vibes Removal Services to resolve matters using the equipment he invented that detects and deciphers emotional residue and sound patterns long embedded in walls.
The Bad Vibes crew — Lea, Kamika, and Montgomery — are used to solving cases involving death. But usually Lea is the only one who sees the spirits. Not this time! This ancient Irish ghost seems bent on breaking all the rules, forcing the team to find new ways for removing old souls. Now the team finds themselves dragged into a convoluted drama of betrayal, murder, and hidden treasure. With their clients’ lives on the line, Lea, Kamika, and Montgomery work to identify the criminal behind the break-ins and free the castle from its haunted past.
*Also, enjoy a bonus Bad Vibes short story, “Astral Vibes,” at the end of the book!
The Walls Can Talk is available in print and ebook for all ereaders.
