Into the Light
by Darcia Helle
on Tour February 1-28, 2019
Max Paddington refuses to go into the light until he finds his killer. This presents a dilemma, since Max is even less competent as a spirit than he was as a live person. No one sees or hears him and he can't manage to get anywhere or do anything on his own.
Joe Cavelli is a private investigator, living an ordinary life. Then one day he walks across a parking lot, gets yelled at by a ghost, and his life only gets stranger from there.
Max and Joe team up to find Max's killer. In the process, they form an unlikely friendship and change each other's lives in ways they never expected.
This was a quirky and entertaining novel. What I like about it are the subtle life lessons it contains. There are interesting insights into what people might say about you after you've died. There are also the regrets Max had as he thought about the things he had left undone and the words he had left unsaid. Yet he was shocked at the impact of one single act of kindness. There are also several subtle commentaries on society, such as hiring a nanny instead of knowing neighbors well enough to leave children with them.
I liked this quirky novel. I didn't agree with the ultimate spiritual lesson it included but I do recommend it as an entertaining and thought provoking novel. It will make you think about what you need to do in the days you have left before that light appears to take you away.
