Much better than I though it would be.
The novel was well delivered, narrated ably by Alyssa Bresnahan. I'd been drawn to the book by its description of the main character's ability to communicate with the dead and I love a good supernatural tale.
Sadly, this ability is restricted to a quick conveyance of their means of demise and not much more, so the plot is mainly about her dysfunctional family's history and the pursuance of truth about a young woman's death.
As a mystery story, it was fine but as I'd been looking for something with a supernatural edge it was disappointing.
The most interesting aspect was the different characters and their interaction.
It was interesting how all of the people who had drink or drug problems had been lawyers or other high flyers. Why couldn't her family be simple "po' white trash"?
The least interesting aspect was her psychic ability: without it there would have been no mystery, but it was simply a hook on which to hang the real story.
