Broken Sigil by William Meikle

There are houses like this all over the world. Most people only know of them from whispered stories 18754563over campfires; tall tales told to scare the unwary. But some…those who suffer…know better. They are drawn to these places to ease their pain.

If you have the will, the fortitude, you can peer into another life, where the dead are not gone.

This novella was a blend of both crime and supernatural genres and a dark tale of love and loss.  Grief drives some to do questionable things and this book explores just how far you’re willing to go.

I liked the chain-smoking, scotch-imbibing, hard-nosed MC, detective Joe Connors, who was investigating the shooting of his friend and ex-partner, Johnny, but wasn’t feeling the connection Joe seemed to have with his wife, although it became more understandable at the end.

At 55 pages,  Broken Sigil is a brief, but riveting read, due to be published January 14, 2014.

This review is based on a digital ARC from the publisher through NetGalley.
