"Dave Callaghan is not here to bring you profound, life-changing thoughts; only quick, unadulterated fun."

It was bad enough, I can assure you, findind a half-naked ectoplasm sitting at my desk, but she had to talk nonsense too . . .

A wealthy woman requests Dave’s help concerning her husband’s affair. Turns out that her husband was seeing a ghost. An affair with a ghost? Obviously, I’m not sure how that would go, but, according to the woman, the ghost was sucking the life out of him (literally.)

But then moments later, that ghost (who makes her death as a hooker) comes to Dave stating that she’s being framed. A ghost being framed? Oh, that’s rich!

This was a quirky case.

I first "met" Kfir Luzzatto through The Harrow Press, where I saw the call for submissions for Mortis Operandi which called for tales from my favourite theme, paranormal, mixed with investigators.

Where was I? Right. Paranormal stories, my love thereof. Also mysteries.

Way back when I was trying to come up with something for Men of the Mean

It starts off pretty good, but even for a short story, it was way too short. This story had so much potential to be ...more

That little sentence right there was enough to make me curious about reading Phantom Lover. Novellas are always a fast read, and I will never be able to understand how an author can put so much in to so little words. Kfir Luzzatto did a great job with Phantom Lover. I was interested from start to finish and I enjoyed the story.

Dave is a very interesting character. His career choice is awesome and he has attitude. I liked his way of dealing with situations. The secondary characters were well
