Added DiffLines:

The ''Zoë Martinique'' series by Phaedra Weldon stars a young woman named (unsurprisingly) Zoë Martinique. A few years before the start of the story, as a reaction to the trauma of being [[RapeAsDrama raped and almost murdered]], she developed the ability to leave her body at will and go wandering around as [[OurGhostsAreDifferent a spirit]]. She uses this ability to work as a private detective.

On one mission, she feels something strange and wanders off to find a strange man in the middle of murdering someone. The killer sees her and touches her, leaving a strange mark on her and turning a lock of her hair white. After that, she gets involved in a bunch of strange events, and discovers a great deal about the nature of her powers.

The series consists of four books so far: ''Wraith'', ''Spectre'' and ''Phantasm'' and ''Revenant''

* {{Atlanta}}: The series takes place here.
* DeaderThanDead: What happens to ghosts who [[spoiler: absorbed by her wraith powers, or those killed by Archer.]]
* DisappearedDad: Zoë's dad left when she was a child.
* GrandTheftMe: Happens occasionally over the course of the series, notably including [[spoiler: her mother and the family doctor.]]
* TheMasquerade: To a degree, since there are magical groups such as witches (including one of Zoë's pals). She often can't tell people the truth of her abilities, and this at one point leads to [[spoiler: the family doctor "diagnosing" her with diabetes.]]
* OurDemonsAreDifferent
* OurGhostsAreDifferent
* OurSoulsAreDifferent: It's part of how Zoë got her powers, since her soul was partially unglued from her body.
* {{Psychopomp}}: Zoë acts as this from time to time.
* TheSpeechless: Archer decides to have some fun, and steal [[spoiler: Zoë's ability to speak.]]
* TraumaInducedAmnesia: Due to the rape, Zoë forgot that [[spoiler: she actually ''died'' during it.]]
* UrbanFantasy
