The InBetween by Dick Wybrow


I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.

The InBetween is not my usual type of read, but I was intrigued by the description and I am glad that I requested it.  Painter Mann is the world’s best dead Private Detective.  Painter operates his private detecting business in the InBetween, the place for spirits who have not yet moved on to a more permanent location.  He investigates open questions surrounding their death in order to allow them to move on.  Lots of quirky, interesting well written characters, the mechanics of the dead and how they function and move are interesting and well thought out, and there is a great deal of  black humor.  The only issue that I really had with the book was at times it seemed that all the story lines seemed too disconnected and could be difficult to follow. A read for fans of black humor and quirky PI characters.
