Twenty-one-year-old college student Jolie Montgomery wakes up in an alley next to her corpse. She doesn’t remember what happened, how she ended up in the alley and who killed her. In her desperation for help and justice, Jolie stays close to the enigmatic Detective Avrianna Heavenborn, the one who’s investigating her case. Until Avrianna finds the person responsible for her brutal death, Jolie’s spirit will remain earth-bound and restless.

Ghost of Death by Chrys Fey is a short paranormal story with less than 40 pages. It is a quick read, even more so with its fast-paced plot. The murderer is somewhat swiftly discovered and arrested. I do love short stories; some are much better read than lengthy novels. On the other hand, I wish Ghost of Death was lengthier. Author Chrys Fey has a good premise and a solid plot, which I think can be developed more with additional pages.

That said, characterization is good and the prose is clear-cut. Detective Avrianna Heavenborn remains a mystery that will stir readers’ curious minds. I would love to know more about her past and her gift of being able to see and hear the dead. I hope Fey will come up with a sequel that centers on Avrianna Heavenborn. Overall, Ghost of Death is an enjoyable and fast paranormal read. Fey is evidently a talent to be reckoned with and no doubt has more great stories in her mind to be written. I’ll look out more of her work in this genre.
