Jan Walter’s “York Street: A Ghost and a Cop Series” (published by iUniverse) follows Brett O’Shea, a young street cop in Des Moines, Iowa, trying to make detective. Brett works by the book and does not believe in hocus-pocus. When a killer begins terrorizing his city’s streets, Brett is forced to alter his view of the paranormal world when a ghost appears in his bedroom.

Walters is embarking on marketing campaign to promote “York Street,” which recently received a 5-star review from Pacific Book Review.

An excerpt from Pacific Book Review’s review of “York Street”:
Walters’ inspiration for writing the book comes from two wonderful sources. The first is her family legacy: four generations of men – dating back to the 1890s – who had served on the Des Moines Police Department (DMPD). The other from stories, as Walters states, “I grew up listening to my grandmother telling me wonderful stories of the DMPD and the crazy cases they would occasionally encounter.”

“York Street” is an entertaining atypical paranormal read – one that appeals to a wide audience. With so many creative interleaves of themes, situations and complex characters, one can easily become a fan of Walters’ style.
