Publisher's Summary

Do you believe in ghosts? Do we really live on in some conscious form after we die, and is that form capable of communicating with the world of the living?Aye, right....That was Jack Parlabane's stance on the matter, anyway. But this was before he found himself in the more compromising position of being not only dead himself, but worse: dead with an exclusive still to file.From his position on high, Parlabane relates the events leading up to his demise, largely concerning the efforts of charismatic psychic Gabriel Lafayette to reconcile the scientific with the spiritual by submitting to controlled laboratory tests.Parlabane is brought in as an observer, due to his capacities as both a sceptic and an expert on deception, but he soon finds his certainties crumbling and his assumptions turned upside down as he encounters phenomena for which he can deduce no rational explanation. One thing he knows for certain, however. Death is not the end - it's the ultimate undercover assignment.

Entertaining from start to finish

I'm a little thick so it took me a few chapters to realize the first person narrative switches between three people - but once that was established I was able to enjoy how well-written, insightful, and witty this book was. Billy Boyd was a lovely narrator although once in a blue moon his Scottish accent slipped through when voicing an American character - this honestly made it sound more charming. If you're looking to buy an easy book which doesn't involve thinking, maybe go in a different direction - there are a lot of political undertones which drive you to do some critical thinking. Overall excellent!
