Book Review: Phantom Lover by Kfir Luzzatto

Half naked ectoplasm?  Okay--maybe I'm somewhere out there--but, that one line made my slightly scientific mind need to read Phantom Lover by Kfir Luzzatto.   What did I think of Phantom Lover?

Quick Summary of Phantom Lover by Kfir Luzzatto 

genre: Paranormal Detective Series 

It was bad enough, I can assure you, finding a half-naked ectoplasm sitting at my desk, but she had to talk nonsense too. 

Short and straight to the point.  I think Kfir Luzzatto is one of my favorite authors from the many books that I've read this year.  He has a wonderful storytelling ability--and writes both intelligently and entertainingly.  Phantom Lover was a  really quick read that jumps right into the storyline and moves quickly through to the end.  The ending arrives a little sooner than I wanted--but, I don't think that I found the story to be lacking--I just wanted to stay with the book a little longer.
 
Would I recommend Phantom Lover?  I really enjoy Kfir Luzzatto's writing and would quickly recommend Phantom Lover.  It's short for those of us with packed schedules and short attention spans--but, well written so that you won't feel slighted by the length.

genre: Paranormal Detective Series

 “Where the hell are they coming from?” When Frankie asked a question, it always sounded like he was placing the blame on someone—me, in this case. Instead of answering, I squashed the white mouse that had just climbed out of his coffee cup. The mouse had the consistency of putty and felt like it; no bloodshed was involved in the squashing.

 Meet the Author:

Kfir was born and raised in Italy, and moved to Israel as a teenager. He acquired the love for the English language from his father, a former U.S. soldier and WWII veteran, a voracious reader and a prolific writer. With a PhD in chemical engineering and a long family history that he needs to live up to, Kfir work as a patent attorney and heads the patent law firm that was established by his great-grandfather in Milan, Italy, in 1869. Kfir lives in Omer, Israel, with his full-time partner, Esther, their four children, Michal, Lilach, Tamar and Yonatan, and the dog Elvis.

Writing has always been Kfir's passion and for almost four years he wrote a weekly "Patents" column in Globes (Israel’s financial newspaper), which also yielded his only (if he can help it) non-fiction book, THE WORLD OF PATENTS, (a not-so-boring tale of what patents are about, in Hebrew), which was published in 2002 by Globes Press. Kfir loves writing short stories but has too many novels waiting to be written (and possibly not enough years ahead of him to write them all), so now he mostly writes full-length fiction. His other passion is working with other authors on stories he loves and that's how he wound up serving on the editorial board of The Harrow Press as Anthology Editor. You can read about Kfir's books here. He loves them all, but never had greater fun than when working on “HAVE BOOK WILL TRAVEL”, a YA fantasy that he wrote together with his son, Yonatan.
