Dead(ish) - Review

by Naomi Kramer
genres: humor, horror, paranormal

     This short book has been free since I downloaded it a year ago. It is the first installment in a series of 3 short unrelated novellas that are connected with the common theme that one of the main characters is dead(ish). The story begins not long after Linda is murdered by her boyfriend Mike. She can't move on without some closure and feels the need to find where Mike has hidden her body. Linda uses some very clever haunting tactics to try to terrorize Mike into revealing the whereabouts of her corpse.

     The language in this book might make a trucker blush as well as some of the more lewd sexual innuendos and situations, so this is definitely not for kids or young adults. Regardless of the subject matter it is surprisingly funny and light hearted as Kramer describes the ultimate payback from beyond the grave. Jilted women who are too demure to turn psychotic, no matter how much they may dream about it or feel their ex may deserve it, can live vicariously through Linda's acts of revenge.
