CONTENT WARNING: Contains the (possible) racial slur, “chola.” It’s spelled out, though the N-word later is only implied. Different people use these words, both of them antagonists. Still, two racist characters in one novella – I didn’t expect that.

I read the Mediator series back in my teens, and am almost 30 now. Needless to say, in regards to this series my recall is even worse than usual. How did Jesse go from a ghost to a “living” person?

Anyhoo, Suze now lives with quirky housemates, whilst trying to convince Jesse to shag her before marriage. She keeps looking at and talking about his crotch. Other readers may brush this off as “sexy banter”, but…no.

So the personal stuff is kind of faff, but the case Suze tries to solve is interesting. An interracial couple’s car goes off a cliff. The driver is blamed…but is it really his fault?
