Ms. Robards chose the storyline as a serious investigation of a serial killer with Dr. Stone (Charlie) and Michael acting like a cross between The Thin Man and Topper, movies of the 1930s. And it works! The investigation into the serial killer was serious with Charlie trying to help the FBI connect the dots to find the killer before more young people are killed. She is hindered by the ghost of Michael following her around giving his comments on everything from her personal life to ideas about the killer, sometime being snarky and angry and other times being helpful and protective. He's crazy about Charlie, but due to his being a ghost, can do little about it. Michael talks to Charlie, she can't talk to him when anyone else is around because no one else can see or hear him. It makes for some comical circumstances. The dialogue between Charlie and Michael was fast and good. They were in sync. The surrounding characters were an asset to the story and the hunt for the killer was thrilling, especially the last chapter. The book may have been a little long, but I didn't knock any points off because the ending was so wonderful! I hope Ms. Robards continues and makes this a series. If you like mystery/thrillers with a love story involved, this one's for you.
Good reading all.
It went in a completely different direction to where I thought the story would go (astral-projection? sex with a ghost, hello!)
Reading it a second time, I decided that I liked the book and wanted to know what would happen with Charlotte, her sexy ghost and their where-is-this-going-to-go affair, and her alive-and-kicking-human love interest.
Hence I read book 2 of the series The Last Kiss Goodbye. And because I refused to let myself make assumptions on what would happen with the characters or the storyline, I enjoyed it.
During the climax of the storyline, I was on the edge of my seat. And now I look forward to purchasing and reading book 3 and 4 of the series
