MY REVIEW

21-year-old Jolie Montgomery has received a fate worse than death: she's a ghost. She was murdered, and she has no recollection of the incident. But Jolie doesn't have to solve the mystery surrounding her death on her own. Detective Avrianna Heavenborn is on the case, and she holds the most crucial skill required to solve this particular case: she can see ghosts.

Ghost of Death was an enjoyable story that flowed rapidly and, more importantly, flowed with ease. I loved how the story began - getting right into the action of things. It definitely sparked my interest and made me want to find out who killed Jolie. I loved the interaction between Jolie and Avrianna. Their banter was enjoyable to experience. They felt more like sisters than partners trying to solve a gruesome crime. I wasn't overly excited about the killer and the reason behind why Jolie was killed (mostly because we don't get to experience much of an interaction between Jolie and her killer - other than the time of her death and that short restaurant scene). Although the restaurant scene did shed some light on the killer's motive, this moment didn't really highlight the true impetus behind the killing (as the killer explicitly explained before killing Jolie) and, for me, the reason that was presented made Jolie's death seem less poignant, especially because the killer seemed far more complex than he was portrayed to be.

It was a good short story, and while I thought the killer didn't serve much purpose to Jolie's story when she was alive, I still found the story enjoyable.
