The Love of the Dead

A 4 star review

Beth is a medium with talent, a dead eight year old son, and a secret than haunts her more than the spirits that surround her. She also has a liking for cheap scotch, but she functions well, until her friends and colleagues start dying. Beth is not necessarily a likeable character, but as a reader I did feel something for her. I think the guilt she carries on her back makes it impossible to trust her, and she certainly wants to keep a few things secret. Coleridge, on the other hand, is very likeable, and as the policeman in charge of the case, we can’t but help to feel sorry for him. This book isn’t your average murder mystery, or medium solving a mystery. It branches off somewhere towards the end into horror. Well worth a read, especially if you’re not looking for perfect characters with perfect lives, because the characters are refreshingly flawed with human vices.The Love of the Dead
