The Spirit of Cahir Mullachby Clayton Callahan
The legend of Lord Oisin was well known in Balie. His heroic defense of the town against the Viking raiders was the stuff of story and song. And, it was said that his spirit still dwells within the ruins of his great castle, Cahir Mullach. But in more modern times, war seems less heroic. Thousands of unnamed redcoats are now returning from the ill-fated American War, one Michael Snodgrass included. Unwanted by a country that wishes to forget defeat, he now marches across Ireland at an indifferent King's bidding. And when a cantankerous bureaucrat sends poor Michael to be quartered in the ruins of Cahir Mullach, he has no choice but to obey...and neither does his host. For the King's law is clear and any subject must make welcome a soldier who holds an official billet in hand...to include a subject now eight hundred years dead.

And worst of all, her mother won’t let up about her joining the “family business.” Since that business is moving the spirits of the dead on to the next plane of existence and doesn’t pay at all, Marie’s not interested. She wants a normal job — a normal life. That’s not too much to ask, is it? Apparently, it is. Even when she applies for the job of her dreams, Marie doesn’t get what she wants. Well, not entirely. She does get the job — but she also gets another ghost. Farley Hewitt, the newly dead caretaker of the building, wants her to prove his death is not an accident, and she’s pretty sure he’s going to haunt her until she does. All she wants is normal. She isn’t going to get it.
