Chiharo Black was only eighteen years-old when she died and became a ghost. She has lived a solitary existence for thirty years being unable to communicate with any of the residents of the apartment building until one day a new ghost arrives who is seeking revenge for his death. Jeremy Emerson is convinced that he is in this ghost form because he has unfinished business to take care of and if he can kill Kiral he will be able to move on. Chiharo is torn, she is excited to have someone she can communicate with but she will not allow Jeremy to kill one of her friends. She is a smart, strong-willed girl, but very naive and idealistic in her old-fashioned beliefs. Jeremy is brash, head-strong, and aggressive, but doesn’t have the years of experience Chiharo has had at being a ghost. They seem to be polar opposites, but we all know opposites attract.
This is a unique storyline that has been woven into the previous novellas. The time line gets a little confusing at times, partly because the ghosts experience time differently than the rest of the world. The action has a steady pace and there is an interesting turn of events at the end of this story that I was not expecting. All in all this was a very satisfying read.
This novella is the sixth novella in The 13th Floor Series and they really should be read in order. I did see a small number of proofing errors in this story.
