Dying isn’t what it used to be.

Wes Cooper was dead. Then he wasn’t—though he’s not exactly alive, either. As an immortal not-ghost, he can transition between this world and the otherplane, which makes him the perfect thief for hire. For seventy years he’s made a “living” returning items to their rightful owners, seeing his fair share of the bizarre in the process. But he’s never witnessed murder. Until now.

His latest mission brings him more than he bargained for: a very-dead actor who is definitely going to stay that way. It’s just Wes’s luck that his ex-boyfriend, Detective Hudson Rojas, is assigned to the case. Hudson broke Wes’s heart years ago—and could again, given he’s rocking a hot silver-fox look that shouldn’t be legal.

As they work together to track down the murderer before anyone else gets hurt, it becomes clear Wes and Hudson have unfinished business. And when a secret Hudson’s been keeping threatens more than just their happiness, it might mean the end of their not-life together—permanently.

Praise for this book

"I ate up this first book in a new paranormal mystery series by Jenn Burke. We have a sort-of-ghost, witches, and other paranormal creatures threaded through an intriguing noir-style mystery and second chance love story. The writing is excellent and sucked me right into the story. Loved both of the male leads. I am anxiously awaiting book two!" - Eli Easton

"A snarky sort-of-ghost, his sexy ex-boyfriend who's gone through some significant changes, some loyal sidekicks, and a dastardly scheme. There's a rapidly moving plot with plenty of suspense and hefty sprinklings of magic and romance. I'm a little bit in love with Wes and Hudson, and I'm looking forward to more." - Kim Fielding

"Not Dead Yet is a quirky, noirish paranormal roller-coaster with memorable characters, steamy sexual tension, and an urban fantasy universe that's a pure delight. I can't wait for the next book--I am completely hooked!" - Amy Lane

"With a different take on ghosts, Jenn Burke delivers a suspenseful ride into a new paranormal world. The premise had me hooked from the beginning and kept me wanting more to the very end." - Hailey Turner
