Review of Ghosts on the Red Line by Peter David Shapiro 5 stars
Review of Ghosts on the Red Line by Peter David Shapiro
An intriguing and comfy psychical (and psychological) mystery with a cast that includes not just individuals, but corporations (the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority-MBTA; Blair West International consultants), universities (MIT), and metropolises (Cambridge and Boston), the novel purports the premise: “What if-what if the deceased began to appear to individuals during a subway ride?” Not a wholesale “everybody sees ‘em,” but rather one departed appearing to one individual at a time, and only the recipient individual can “see,” touch, talk to, the gone person. That’s fine when the visitations are of lost loved ones, dearly missed and grieved; but when those include murdered witnesses appearing to a gangster, and a man dead by his own hand who accuses his brother-in-law, trouble ensues. Not to mention, that crowds upon crowds now want to ride this single line, the Red Line, in hopes of retrieving time with those they’ve lost.
Creative and original, “Ghosts on the Red Line” delves into detail about the subways, the cities, the MBTA, and showcases Harry West, co-owner and partner of Blair West International, the consultancy called in to assist the MBTA in discovering exactly what is happening, and why, and how to bring about its cessation. Readers who like their mysteries wrapped up in cozy, with sufficient intrigue to keep those pages turning, are sure to enjoy “Ghosts on the Red Line.”

Should have stopped halfway
A fascinating premise! I enjoyed the first part very much, but the last half got bogged down trying to interpret everything with science, minutely explained. This attempt to steer the plot could not hold my interest--I have to admit, I skimmed the last half.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
