Review: Speed Dating with the Dead
Speed Dating with the Dead by Scott Nicholson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Speed Dating with the Dead has a King/Shining feel to it, even though it’s during a ghost hunter convention. Besides set in a hotel, I think it’s because the main character is an alcoholic who falls off the wagon due to demonic stress.
Other than the reliance on the alcoholic trope, everything else about this novel was very nice. It takes the modern fascination with ghost spotting, along with the equipment and assorted people that are in ‘the biz’, and puts them somewhere that they can have real experiences so they can react based on their backgrounds and beliefs.
