Review: The Washer of the Dead

The Washer of the Dead The Washer of the Dead by Venita Coelho
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In the midst of middling, okay reads – books that you read one minute and forget the next – comes that one book that simply blows you away. One that tells you what literature is all about and the power of the written word. The book is subtitled: A Collection of Ghost Stories and it is totally appropriate because these are absolutely haunting.

*

Opening Lines: Do You Believe in Ghosts? That’s the sort of question you ask yourself at that part of the night when the ordinary noises of the day have eased into such a deep quiet that it’s impossible to sleep.
