About the Book

Flicker is a modern-day ghost story set in a haunted diner. When Charlie Brace buys, refurbishes, and opens a diner that’s been up on blocks for many years, he gets much more than he bargained for, from neon signs that flicker insanely, to a quirky staff, to odd customers, to an even stranger hobo-philosopher who picks through his dumpster while lecturing him on the moon and mythology, to the amorous advances of the previous owner’s widow, to a mysterious mother and child who appear at the diner one morning carrying steaming baskets of pies that are, in a word, charmed, to the appearance of ghosts with murderous intentions.Are the mother and child ghosts or do they just bake great pies? What about Charlie’s head waitress, who dresses like a woman from the 1950s and spouts diner lingo no one has used in years? What about the man in the dumpster? What about the widow, who seems to be holding back about her husband’s death? And what about the customers, who grow anxious and impatient whenever the pie runs out? Who exactly are the ghosts, why are they haunting the diner, and why do they want to kill Charlie?L. Rett Boswell is also the author of The Leadership Secrets of Squirrels and SKELETON: A Bare Bones Mystery.

About the Author
Len Boswell

Len Boswell is the author of eight books, most notably his Simon Grave Mysteries, an award-winning series featuring the comic exploits of "almost handsome" Detective Simon Grave and his "nearly invisible" partner, Sergeant Barry Blunt. His writing has been compared to the writings of Janet Evanovich, Rich Leder, Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, and Kurt Vonnegut, but he'd like to think his cozy comedic mysteries are something new, blending mystery, humor, and satire in the mythical seaside town of Crab Cove in the not-too-distant 2050s. Yes, there are robots, and fun!
