Elle Cosimano once again blows it out of the water with her latest paranormal mystery, HOLDING SMOKE. John “Smoke” Conlan was accused of two murders – one of which he didn’t commit. Still a criminal doing time at a juvenile detention center known as the “Y”, Smoke is trying to recover from being murdered by his father.
That’s right, John Smoke Conlan was murdered. Six minutes later, he came back to life. Ever since then, Smoke has been able to travel outside his body, and he uses this new ability to gather information on his prison-mates to trade for favors. This leads Smoke to meet “Pink”, a tough girl working night shift at a bar, the only person who can see his ghostly form. When new evidence comes to light that might help clear Smoke’s name, he enlists Pink’s help, and they become entwined in a web of secrets and danger.
A masterfully crafted thriller that will keep you guessing until literally the very last page, Smoke’s story is thrilling, raw, and gritty. The paranormal twist gives HOLDING SMOKE a unique edge all its own, and Cosimano’s superb writing will keep readers turning the pages long into the night. The author really knows her topic, due to her own background and a ton of research and reading. The work she put into the story really shows in the details, the accuracy, and the depth of the characters. This is a fantastic book that readers will simply not be able to put down!
