The Departed is a novel written by Shiloh Walker. It was first published in 2012.
A LIFELONG OBSESSION FBI Special Agent Taylor Jones has made it his mission to save those in harm's way by any means necessary--including employing psychic agents like Desiree "Dez" Lincoln, who can communicate with the disembodied spirits of the dead. Taylor is haunted by his own ghost, his kid sister, gone missing at age six. For a quarter of a century he has been tortured by her loss and the mystery of her disappearance.
A NIGHT'S INDISCRETION When Dez is seriously wounded, Taylor can no longer hide his feelings for her. Getting involved could spell disaster for both of them--not to mention those who rely on them for help--but once Dez lays her hands on him, he can't resist the fierce attraction. But after giving in to his desires, Taylor pulls back, and Dez strikes out on her own.
AN INESCAPABLE PASSION Responding to the call of another anguished spirit, Dez is led to Taylor's old hometown. As the two are forced to come together to save a girl in peril, Dez may be able to help Taylor finally find the answers he's been looking for...
