I know this is supposed to be darker, as far as content, but it still could have had more humorous banter, or something to keep me engaged. Lieutenant Rossel is a good but damaged character and main investigator of a macabre multiple murder in the Russian winter. As it becomes apparent that the hideous discovery that opens the book, may be in some way related to his previous life, Creed really puts Rossel through the emotional wringer, but never losing sight of the qualities that some of his colleagues regard as ineffectual imbue Rossel with a strength and decency that proves so valuable in this extremely testing investigation. The reader, too, learns quickly that not everyone is as they seem, and this adds to the overarching darkness of the plot itself where a clever and twisted killer goes about their business.

All said this is still a decent thriller with good writing and strong characters who could easily carry a series.

The dialogue and every interaction from the story are so reliable for those times, they all were so wary about everything and everyone as you couldn’t trust anyone, you didn’t know if a family member or friend was your ally or your enemies.

I could almost feel the cold breath of a ghost of two or something out of the corner of my eye as I was reading it.And I obviously know that authors have no control over their covers, but I wish the cat was replaced with Jacob. Revol Rossel, the state militia cop is an incredibly deep and interesting individual, whose moral core and sense of right is put under a huge amount of pressure as the case proceeds.

But when Cass meets a girl who shares her "gift " , she realizes how much she still has to learn about the Veil — and herself.In fact, the person that saved her from death, and her new best friend - Jacob - just happens to be a ghost himself. I loved the deeper cultural richness of this book, as some of it revolves around the world of classical music, with some intriguing clues being woven into this thread of the novel.

There is a strong sense of historical authenticity running through the book from the outset, and if, like me, your knowledge of this particularly fraught and dangerous period of Soviet history is largely superficial, there is so much to be gleaned. Everything seemed dimmed down, but I guess it had to be because the audience that’s being catered to now has changed. Even though I absolutely adore Victoria Schwab, her writing style and the whole ghost story, I had some problems with the whole pacing in this book. Cassidy's parents just so happen to be a well-known author duo who have written a book series that's like a mash-up of history and ghost stories.She loves fairy tales, and folklore, and stories that make her wonder if the world is really as it seems.
