(technically) DEAD - Naomi Kramer I would describe it as a ghost story wrapped in an afterlife mystery and tied with a big bow of snark, then sprinkled with a generous amount of cuss words (though I think the first book may have had even more cussing). If you read the first short story in this series, DEAD(ish), then you are familiar with the characters of Trent and Linda, who work together again in this book to solve another ghostly mystery. I wasn't that happy with the whodunit (or maybe I should say howdunit), but it gets brownie points for the lol cat reference that made me, well...lol!If you are inclined to read a humorous, snarky, cuss-filled, Aussie mystery, then this might be the short story for you. Since short stories don't really have a lot of room for back story, I recommend starting with the first story, DEAD(ish), which happens to be available free at Smashwords at the time of this post.
