“I'm sending it back,” Jude told her.
“No refunds, Mr. Coyne….”
Jude…struggled for words…. “What are you out for…?”
“She came back home to kill herself…” she said, Jessica Price of Florida, whose name was unfamiliar to him…. “After you were done with her, she slashed her wrists….”
Florida…his head seemed to come clear…. She had always been Florida to him, but her name was really Anna May McDermott….
Jessica Price was talking again. “Before my stepfather died, he told me…how…to send you his suit and what would happen after….”
Jude said, “Why did I have to buy the suit…?”
“If you didn’t pay, the ghost wouldn’t really belong to you….”
“How’d you know I’d buy it…?”
“Anna told me all about your sick little collection….”
You can just get out, Jude thought…. Leave the dead man’s suit and the dead man behind….
As if he had said it aloud, Jessica Price said…. “Wherever you go, he’ll be right there….”
In rock star Judas Coyne’s collection of the bizarre is a hangman’s noose, a skeleton—and now a ghost he’s bought on the Internet. But when a suit arrives in a heart-shaped box, Jude soon learns it belongs to a dead, sadistic hustler who blames him for the death of his daughter. Now Jude and the woman he loves must outrun a wrathful spirit…or beat him at his own game.
