Paula Brackston fans will want to add KL Nappier to their favorites lists.
There could be no unlikelier pair of amateur sleuths than Greta Roscoe and the Reverend Aaron Shane. Not because Greta is St. Louis's most elegant courtesan as the era of Rag-Time dawns, and Aaron the city's most self-righteous minister.
It's because they're dead.
And an angelic tutor named Aridite has given them the assignment of solving their own murders.
If only things in the Afterlife were as simple as they seemed.

The book is written with a historic background, in 1896. The location is the heartlands of America, St. Louis in Missouri. We briefly learn about the two primary characters - Greta Roscoe - a courtesan, and Aaron Shane, the minister and how their paths entangle with each other. Then, all of a sudden, we are drawn into the part of the story where things pick up, the author gets right into the afterlife right at page 27: "... stopped abruptly, and Greta looked in the direction he was staring. What that, just under the west windows? A dark shape, like a man sprawled over and unconscious. Or dead. A deep voice said "Yes, dead, Greta. That's Aaron's shell. You're right, you're both very dead." A murder mystery with a twist - the amateur "sleuths" are investigating their own murders. The story continues where the author uses the opportunity provided by the plot to combine the elements of a good murder mystery with philosophy, the curiosity most of us have about the afterlife, gripping our attention till the end.
