In Jaime Lee Moyer'sA Barricade in Hell, Delia Martin has been gifted (or some would say cursed) with the ability to peer across to the other side. Since childhood, her constant companions have been ghosts. She used her powers and the help of those ghosts to defeat a twisted serial killer terrorizing her beloved San Francisco. Now it's 1917—the threshold of a modern age—and Delia lives a peaceful life with Police Captain Gabe Ryan.

That peace shatters when a strange young girl starts haunting their lives and threatens Gabe. Delia tries to discover what this ghost wants as she becomes entangled in the mystery surrounding a charismatic evangelist who preaches pacifism and an end to war. But as young people begin to disappear, and audiences display a loyalty and fervor not attributable to simple persuasion, that message of peace reveals a hidden dark side.

As Delia discovers the truth, she faces a choice—take a terrible risk to save her city, or chance losing everything?

Moyer lives in San Antonio with writer Marshall Payne, three cats, three guitars, and a growing collection of books and music.

For Delia's Shadow "A polished historical fantasy/mystery that should appeal to a wide variety of readers and could cross over to mainstream readers as well." - Library Journal, starred review "Moyer's detailed research helps make this romantic supernatural murder mystery sparkle."- Publishers Weekly "Impeccably constructed and presented and the characters are life-sized."- Kirkus Reviews "Like fog creeping in from the Bay, this ghostly, romantic tale of San Francisco past made the outside world disappear and sent shivery tendrils into my soul. A gorgeous and haunting book." -Rae Carson, author of Girl of Fire and Thorns
