That the voices belong to spirits no longer among the living isn’t a biggie either. He knows a gift he’d buried in childhood has a purpose and is part of who he is and his own personal destiny. Joe assists ghosts (if you will) with solving the mystery behind their demise or tying up loose ends from their lives before they move on to the next realm. Sometimes tears are shed, and emotions run high, but Joe is left with a sense of satisfaction and peace.
His wife, brother and best friend are privy to Joe’s sideline… and life goes on. No pun intended.
Until Angus “Gus” Smith arrives.
Gus is rude, foul-mouthed, obnoxious, pushy, sarcastic… and just plain mean. He was guided to Joe by Max (spirit number one) but he has nothing else to tell Joe. How he died, why he died or where his body is.
Just that he keeps ending up the dark place.
With absolutely no trail to follow, Joe walks a fine line piecing together the life of Angus Smith. With each new bit of information Joe finds, bits of Gus’ memory returns and it makes him even angrier.
But with the help of Everett and his endless game of Clue, the stern Leah and far-out and funky Martin, Mystical Matrix Magician Sebastian, harmonizers Avis and Siva, and even one of the men who attacked him, Gus comes to understand his own anger is hindering Joe’s investigation and his own ability to escape the dark place.
Gus’ new sense of acceptance and direction bring plot twists with them that are jaw-dropping. I’d finally gotten over (mostly) learning about Uncle Leo’s slaughtered meat… and the secret ingredient, to learn the root cause of Gus’ condition was even more evil and disgusting… and Gus wasn’t even aware of it.
Stellar writing and complex characters make this page-turner also a study in enlightenment—not new age or anything like that—but into ourselves.
We live with the premise things we say can and do hurt others, but Out of Darkness shows how we can do just as much—if not more--damage to ourselves with our own words and emotions.
Joe’s wife, Alexis, gets gold stars for being the supportive wife of the millennium. His assistant, Tia, is priceless and all too happy to join in the paranormal investigation, and I may even kinda, sorta like Det. Nolan… a little.
This read is definitely a wild ride with a fantastic ending I recommend to everyone.
All parties are guilty of something… just not what you think.
This well-written novel was light and fun, yet during Gus’s very unusual journey to find out what had happened to him and to solve a mystery, there were several thought-provoking and insightful moments of clarity. I thought the author did a wonderful job of balancing the “different shades of light” in the story and creating characters that readers can truly visualize.
The humor was also spot-on. Never overdone, but always right where it needed to be and I found it very relatable … not that I’ve ever woken up without my head or body, but while reading this, Darcia Helle’s excellent prose allowed me to imagine what it would be like.
Superb story with a satisfying ending!
Enjoyable characters, nice development, few if any grammatical errors or typos. Solid, relatively light book.

Joe, a PI, can also talk to ghosts and when Gus contacts him, his sleuthing begins.
This fast-paced, well-written tale is brimming with mystery - both within this world and beyond. It has action, goodies, baddies, humour in all the right places and great characters and plot.
There are lessons to learn and an injection of wisdom that is certainly thought-provoking.
A superb read and highly recommended.
All this spirit guide thing through the whole book was boring.
No more Joe Cavelli books for me.
