After Life is the second book in the Raney/Daye Investigation series, following a skeptical retired police detective, Nate Raney, who denies his near-death experience and an anthropology professor, Dr. Jennifer Daye, who moonlights as a parapsychologist. They team up to apply their expertise to cases with a paranormal twist. In After Life, Nate and Jennifer investigate a situation involving a young boy, who has apparently befriended the ghost of a woman who used to own the old farmhouse his family is now living in. She died as a consequence of a botched bank robbery fifteen years earlier and has a million dollar secret some people are willing to do anything to find out.
