In her latest book of supernatural, true-life mystery, Linda Alice Dewey is contacted by a ghost named Jacobs. Jacobs is a runaway slave who was brutally murdered during the Civil War. Using Jacobs's own words, Dewey tells Jacobs's gripping story of being a slave, a fugitive, a vagrant in nineteenth-century America—and his "life" as The Ghost Who Would Not Die.

After Jacobs is murdered, his ghost congregates with other ghosts, plays tricks on people, and wanders aimlessly through middle America. Eventually, he begins to help the living by telepathically influencing their thoughts and, ultimately, attaching himself to Dewey and her son. Dewey helps Jacobs to "cross over" and find the peace and freedom that was denied him in life and during the first hundred years after his death.

The Ghost Who Would Not Die is a gripping, Civil War–era tale, as well as a well-told, true ghost story that is sure to appeal to readers interested in the supernatural and life after death.

Born in Detroit, Michigan, Linda Alice Dewey was raised in a family with a metaphysical belief system that did not include ghosts. However, in 1987, she began exploring New Age metaphysics, developing her spiritual skills, and embarked upon a fresh spiritual journey. Linda co-facilitates a spiritual listening group and teaches workshops. She can be contacted via email at linda@lindaalicedewey.com.
