Eric Carter sees the dead. Difference is, he can converse with them. He's turned his talent into a career, wandering the country and laying the restless dead. When he hears that his sister has been murdered, however, he must return to Los Angeles--the city he fled years before--and demand justice...if he has to interrogate every living-impaired spirit in the City of Angels to get it.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Necromancer is such an ugly word, but it's a title Eric Carter is stuck with. He sees ghosts, talks to the dead. He's turned it into a lucrative career putting troublesome spirits to rest, sometimes taking on even more dangerous things. For a fee, of course.

When he left L.A. fifteen years ago he thought he'd never go back. Too many bad memories. Too many people trying to kill him. But now his sister's been brutally murdered and Carter wants to find out why.

Was it the gangster looking to settle a score? The ghost of a mage he killed the night he left town? Maybe its the patron saint of violent death herself, Santa Muerte, whos taken an unusually keen interest in him.

Carter's going to find out who did it and hes going to make them pay. As long as they don't kill him first.
