After reading (and LOVING!) We Are All The Same In The Dark, I downloaded a number of Julia Heaberlin’s backlist books. Paper Ghosts was up first, and it is hands down one of the most original, unique premises I’ve ever read! Is he the serial killer who murdered her sister, or just an old man with dementia? I absolutely loved the unexpectedly dark humor, the creeping sense of place, the cat and mouse vibe, and that who was the cat and who was the mouse flipped up on its head more than once.
Gritty, raw, with breathtaking suspense and crystalline prose, Paper Ghosts is a haunting story about revenge and justice, about the pasts we try to leave behind, and about grief in its darkest form. Another 5* thriller from an author who is fast becoming a favorite!
