The Body Departed | [J. R. Rain]

The Body Departed

James Blakely is a good man who has done some bad things in his time. So when he’s viciously gunned down in his sleep, he’s faced with a choice: Proceed immediately to an afterlife of eternal damnation or haunt the world of the living in search of redemption - and one last shot at heaven. Now, little more than a flickering shade of the man he was, James spends his days seeking solace from the loved ones he left behind - even as he works furiously to unravel the mystery of his murder.

Publisher's Summary

James Blakely is a good man who has done some bad things in his time. So when he’s viciously gunned down in his sleep, he’s faced with a choice: Proceed immediately to an afterlife of eternal damnation or haunt the world of the living in search of redemption - and one last shot at heaven. Now, little more than a flickering shade of the man he was, James spends his days seeking solace from the loved ones he left behind - even as he works furiously to unravel the mystery of his murder. Solving the crime and saving his soul will force James to confront the darkest secrets in his own past. With his memories fading and his ghost body disintegrating, time is running out for him to save himself and leave this earthly plane. The fires of hell are rising, but will they purify James Blakely’s tormented soul - or consume it?

    "Great story"

    I got caught up in this immediately. I hadn't read J R Rain before but the storyline and concept intrigued me. The story is told from the perspective of a murdered man, now a ghost, who needs to work through some things before he feels able to 'move on'. There's quite a bit of religious theory/belief woven into the story but it is mainly focused on the protagonist's wish for atonement and, as he sees it, to save his soul. Loved the ending and the last few chapters brought a lump to the throat. Loved the audio and will be looking for more from this author.
