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.

My review:

I am a HUGE fan of quirky.  Dave Callaghan, Paranormal Investigator fits the bill. Phantom Lover and Accidental Lazarus introduces us to Dave in two short stories. Dave is snarky, complacent and downright cranky at times. My kind of guy. He seems to find himself in quite a few binds over the course of the two short stories but always seems to find himself on the winning side. He helps a “succubus” ghost clear her name in Phantom Lover and a Stupid Joe, a walking corpse, find the guy who “whacked” him. After reading this book and the third story Mice (review coming soon) I don’t think I would like to be Dave’s girlfriend, just saying. Although I did find it humorous that Lizzy couldn’t see Stupid Joe (Gustave) for the corpse that he was.

If you are looking for a quick intro to the life of Dave Callaghan grab a copy and be prepared to chuckle. Phantom Lover is a quirky, light hearted, snarky, fun read. It’s just what the doctor ordered after a day of too much seriousness. To see more into Dave’s life check out Mice.

“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.
