Nowhere Man: a Ghost Story
"On paper, Molly Starr Park is a perfect candidate. Credit score: 739. Six thousand dollars in her spending account. Twenty thousand in savings. Five years of solid rental history with glowing reference checks from former rental management companies."
Nowhere Man: a Ghost Story is a supernatural science fiction novel following the adventures of a twenty-something software engineer "living" as a ghost, lording over the high-rise condo unit in Portland, OR where he presumably died.
He's content to be the lord of his realm until his incorporeal stability, and the stability of the world around him starts to fluctuate. And then, she arrives. Molly Starr Park, a Prothero employee who seems destined to ruin everything.
When Molly Starr Park attempts to restart her life in a brand new city in a brand new job, she arrives to more than she bargained for.
The Prothero-provided condo she moves into is haunted by the ghost of Desmond Jones, a former Prothero employee, and he doesn't like her. In fact, he wants her OUT.
But both of their lives (well, after-life) are unraveling and despite their corporeal differences, they seem to be the only ones who can help one another.
