Sometimes death wakes you up...

Death comes for us all, but when JJ Lynch dies, it's one hell of a wakeup call. He's forced out of the rut of his going-nowhere meat-life and must embrace his new after-life. With a gallows sense of humor, JJ fights his way through the five stages of grief on a journey you will never forget.

Along the way he has to confront the bardo (his own

I loved this book. I wanted to read it the moment I saw the word ghost.

I really enjoyed this book! From the moment I picked it up I did not want to put it down. Robert's imaginative tale of JJ's death (which turns out not to be much of a death at all) and his experiences on the other side of the veil were fascinating and thought provoking. I loved how the lessons of life continued for JJ, but with such an unusual twist. I'm very much looking forward to the next book in the series... there were so many things I still wanted to know! It really feels like this adventu ...more

What a hoot! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Transitioning to the afterlife from the point of view of the ghost.


He writes using a high-tech system that works on electromagnetic energy, but the story is really about coping with grief and changes outside your control, and making things right in your life. In contrast to the true story Kitty Cornered that I just read, this story is not whiny in the least, even though it is also a self-examination, albeit fiction.


I highly recommend this book!

For author Robert J. McCarter's first novel, this one is well written and absolutely wonderful! I gobbled it up in one day and wished there was more! Such a compelling and engaging and completely absorbing story. All the characters, especially JJ and Nate, just grab you - in a good way. I wanted to know everything I could about them, beyond what was written in the story. I literally could not put the book down. Wow. I've got a number of friends I will pass it along to.

Robert J. McCarter has a re

This is an entirely unique and enjoyable story. The characters were solid and believable. The emotions felt true and the dialog was realistic. I flew through this book and will happily read more of Mr. McCarter's work.

Very good book

One of the best books I've read in a long time. At first I thought the topic might be a little heavy, but as I read, I became engrossed in JJ's world. Can't wait to read the second book.
