A Chat With Sadie Novak by Wendy Roberts

Dead_SuiteHi. I’m Sadie Novak. I run a trauma clean company called Scene-2-Clean. Chances are good that if we’ve met recently, it means you’ve lost someone in a violent manner and you need someone with blood borne pathogen training to do the cleanup. Either that, or you’re a ghost. Did I mention I can see and talk to the dead? Well, don’t go blabbing about that to everyone because that’ll shoot my credibility as a trauma cleaner right out the window!

When I’m not mopping up after the dead I’m chatting with them and helping them move on to the next dimension. Usually they’re stuck here because they have unfinished business. Sometimes that unfinished stuff involves bringing they’re killer to justice. It’s not like I have a death wish or a burning desire to come face to face with murderers, but I do feel an obligation to speak for the dead.

My life isn’t all ghosts and murderers. I have my great friend, Maeva, who runs Madam Maeva’s Psychic Café. Having a friend who’s a psychic isn’t as beneficial as you might think. She’s yet to give me winning lottery numbers or predict if I’ll ever marry someone tall, dark and handsome. Speaking of my love life, there’s also my on-again-off-again boyfriend, Zack. And now Owen. Sigh. Maybe we shouldn’t talk about him.

Who has time for love anyway? Right now I’m just trying to earn enough to make my mortgage payment. Currently I’m cleaning up a serial killer’s crime scenes at luxury hotels which is a nice escape from my usual crime scenes. However, the ghosts in posh hotels are just as persistent and the Seattle Slasher is now out to pull me into his deadly web.

Want to know more? Read about it in Dead Suite, the fourth book in Wendy Roberts’ “Ghost Dusters” series. The first book in the series is The Remains of the Dead.

  4. Ghosts Dusters series seems like so much fun, too bad the cleaning up biz depends on violent crime. I love that a ghost asks a cleaning person to bring his killer to justice!

    I love this series! Right now I’m on page 144 of Dead and Kicking. It was hard to tear myself away from it, but really should save some for later today. I like that that the subject of hoarding is touched on. I’m looking at my piles of papers and other stuff in a new, critical way. (Nothing approaching hoarderdom!)
    Now looking forward to reading the next book, Dead Suite. Thanks for writing this series!

  6. Dorothy, sometimes the deaths cleaned up by Sadie are also natural causes or suicides but they weren’t the focus of this book in the series.

    Nancy, I’m glad you’re enjoying Dead & Kicking! Researching hoarding had me looking at my own piles of paper too!
