VESTIGE is a smart, engaging ghost story that offers plenty of genuine chills. The ending may not please everyone, but the overall product is highly entertaining.
VESTIGE also poses some interesting philosophical questions. Is it possible that some of those we believe to be mentally ill are in fact just in touch with another plane of existence? How much of our lives are based on fate and how much free will? Do those who die with unfinished business on earth look to the living for help and closure? Of course, readers must answer these questions for themselves, but the fact that Gliozzi raises them elevates the novel beyond a simple scare fest.
There are several twists involved in the plot, particularly in Max Stein’s storyline, to the extent that it is nearly impossible to predict where things are going to end up. As a result, the final scene seems slightly abrupt and unearned. But if readers don’t care for the ending, they will likely still enjoy the journey.
VESTIGE, a smart and engaging ghost story by Monique Gliozzi offers plenty of genuine chills, and while the ending may not please everyone, the overall book is highly entertaining.
