Petchy Maligula by Stan Carter
Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal, Science Fiction
Publisher: Gypsy Shadow Publishing
Release Date: August 2010
Petchy Maligula, a private investigator, is hired to find missing TV archaeologist – Faladan Pala. Faladan is the host of the popular TV series “I Dig the Past” and well loved by millions, including Petchy herself. In fact, Petchy has a huge crush on the TV star and has a personal interest in finding him. Much to her surprise, she finds there are quite a few people who would like to get rid of the popular star.
She believes a cult has kidnapped Faladan and planning to use him as a sacrifice. There’s no way she can let this happen. She tries desperately to put a stop to this and even uses a couple of ghost spies along the way to help her. Petchy is beyond shocked when she learns the true reason behind the TV host’s disappearance.
The story is set in Betroit, Mechigan. At first I thought there were quite a few typos in this book, but then I realized it’s a parallel universe. The main character, Petchy, is a tough, larger than life character who can hold her own, but occasionally needs help from some of her friends who have more supernatural powers than she does. This book kept me on my toes and I loved every minute of it. This was a fun, quirky and intriguing read.
