While the performance and world building are good, the exuberant sexism finally wore me down. When our protagonist, the ghost of a car thief, asserts that prostitution will always be *necessary* "as long as women withhold sex" and the ghost of a nun who ran a shelter for battered sex-workers for 30 years, agrees with his analysis of *the* cause of prostitution, I ground my teeth, sighed and deleted the book.
It's one thing for our ignorant, young former car thief to hold, well, ignorant opinions. And he does. Hold many. However, often those same opinions are challenged by the behaviors or conversations of characters whom we respect and our young car thief thinks again. The crude sexist opinions he spouts about women, relationships with women, what women are good for, etc. seem to be impervious to other information. The lecture about prostitution was simply the last straw.

Jutta Profijt did it again! She brought Pasha back for round two. I can't remember laughing so much or so hard at a ghost story/murder mystery. MacLeod Andrews was The perfect voice for Pasha.
