Book Description

Welcome to Limbo.
Population: No one ever really knows.

Two bullets in the back give PI Callous Demar an address change to Limbo, and life after death takes on a whole new meaning. Knowing his final destination leans toward Hell, Callous decides to spend some time earning redemption points before committing to his final steps.

When his grandniece Abigail arrives in Limbo, Callous' partner--and murderer--takes an interest in her. Callous finds himself having to reel in the need for revenge against the living and the dead, or else change his permanent address before he helps Abigail from matching her next stop to his.

Dying for Redemption is a traditional detective novel set in worldly and other- worldly realms.

About the Author

C.A. Freeburn has loved books since she can remember. There was nothing better than picking up a story and finding herself in another place and meeting new people. The love of reading evolved into the love of writing and she's been writing since her teenage years. Her first novel, Parental Source, was a 2003 Library of Virginia Literary award nominee. Whether it's a detective story or an inspirational romantic suspense, her stories usually involve some sort of crime where the characters are determined to see those wrongs righted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mystery At It's Best July 28, 2004
Format:Paperback
It seems our main character in this high rolling mystery is dead. How is that for a beginning to a read? What an ingenious idea; I loved it right away, and I was anxious to dig my teeth into this one.

Callous was murdered, and is now living in Limbo along with others who also were murdered, and must stay there long enough to get their questions answers. At that time they would either go to Heaven or Hell. Yikes! This was getting good; I read on; I had to know how the author was going to write a murder mystery with dead people being the main characters. Talk about a challenge.

In life, Callous was a PI and he was killed during an investigation where he was searching for a missing girl. He has been in Limbo for over 50 years and has opened a PI office, where he helps those who are there find out who killed them so that they can move on to wherever they are going. Creepy!

The story takes you to the house of his great-grandniece who is now in college and is doing a paper for her class. She has decided to investigate the murder of her great uncle and someone had to stop her, the truth could not be told. She is murdered and ends up in Limbo with her uncle. They team up with several other colorful characters that were murdered as well, to solve all of their mysteries. What a group.

I loved the character Callous. I enjoyed his wit and enjoyed watching him work through many of his own inward struggles. The moving between the living and the dead kept this reader on her toes and kept my interest high,

as the author weaved the story of several murders neatly throughout the read. Yes, this kept you guessing until the end, with all the normal questions of the who's what's and why's with each case.

4.0 out of 5 stars A different and entertaining read. December 23, 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The story alternates points of view between Callous and his grand-niece, Abby. I found this very distracting as, at times, I had to check the chapter heading to know which POV was speaking. Callous 'notes' to himself were amusing but not completely logical as you assume he has been a PI in Limbo since he died and would have been exposed to the changing times through this 'clients.' Still in all, it was clever and entertaining and had some interesting points about life and death. The two mysteries were well-plotted with good twists. I should recommend this to those who enjoy the paranormal and want something a bit different.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cool idea that loses steam November 15, 2011
By Sean
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the idea of a PI working in Lembo, and bought the book souly on that. Sadly the plot moves really slow and seems unfocused with the two cases that they were following. It was always more interesting when they were talking about being dead and haunting things then anything else. Also I felt that the POV of the detective was a bit over done in the noir style. Still a great consept that would work again, with maybe a single case.
