This was my first time reading Steven James, who apparently is a master of suspense and this his first YA mystery. Daniel, the MC, starts seeing ‘blurs’, or basically the ghost of a recently deceased classmate who asks him to investigate her dead. (Why she doesn’t just tell him what happened, since she was present at her own dead, is beyond me but would have made for a much shorter book, of course).
What follows is on the one hand a rather standard situation where Daniel together with his best friend and love interest look into the death of said classmate. On the other hand it is also Daniel’s story as he is trying to figure out what is real and what isn’t and is he going mad or not?
While not the most original mystery and not un-put-downable, it was a nice read and I will continue with the next in the series.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
