In Death As In Life is a paranormal mystery drama by Sonny Kohet. Judy Vernon, a freelance journalist, was sitting in a Kansas café when she saw a middle-aged man having a heart attack, pleading with his eyes in his dying moments. Feeling his presence around her, Judy investigates the man she later discovers is Frank Farrington, a former investment banker and owner of Phoenix Imports. Soon, Judy finds herself interviewing his family members, including his temperamental ex-wife, Myriam, his problematic friend, Billy, and his brother's unfaithful wife, Alison, who somehow develops a crush on her. Meanwhile, Judy begins a passionate romance with businessman Myron Myerson, who is determined to help his troubled niece get parole. As Judy delves into the lives of these strangers, she develops a deeper appreciation for Frank's willingness to give people second chances.
In Death As In Life is a captivating slice-of-life drama novel with a slight sprinkling of the paranormal. I found this book to be a rich exploration of human behavior. Sonny Kohet weaves an engaging yarn that perfectly demonstrates how unforeseen circumstances lead people to make choices and mistakes that can change their lives. There are a lot of characters, but Kohet ensures that each has a distinct personality and story arcs that, in the end, converge to conclude the tale in a satisfying way. I especially enjoyed the plot threads involving Judy, Myron, Rebekah, and Frank. Kohet has a compelling writing style that makes the narrative immersive and a breeze to go through. Readers who love character-driven stories will find this one thoroughly entertaining.
