"I'm going to hate being dead," she thought. "I miss myself already." A great, quirky mystery full of thoughts on life, death and dying, and living in New York. Thoroughly enjoyable!

In the style of a Taylor Caldwell novel this book goes to the souls of the characters. The best book I have read in a long time.
