The Ghost in the Electric Blue Suit is an interesting book and. I liked how the main character, David, was drawn to the resort and how when he got there…he had a ghostly experience. The author did a great job of making the story about David as a character. I was interested in his past and I was worried about his future. The love triangle added an extra twist to the type of character that David was. He was drawn to someone that had issues of her own.
I ended up liking the ending and I recommend this author. His character development is well worth the read.
David was definitely different at the end of the book.
Critically acclaimed author Graham Joyce returns with a sexy, suspenseful,and slightly supernatural novel set 1976 England during the hottest summer in living memory, in a seaside resort where the past still haunts the present.
David, a college student, takes a summer job at a run-down family resort in a dying English resort town. This is against the wishes of his family . . . because it was at this resort where David's biological father disappeared fifteen years earlier. But something undeniable has called David there.
A deeper otherworldliness lies beneath the surface of what we see. The characters have a suspicious edge to them . . . David is haunted by eerie visions of a mysterious man carrying a rope, walking hand-in-hand with a small child . . . and the resort is under siege by a plague of ladybugs. Something different is happening in this town.
When David gets embroiled in a fiercely torrid love triangle, the stakes turn more and more menacing. And through it all, David feels as though he is getting closer to the secrets of his own past.
This is a darkly magic and sexy book that has a strong suspense line running through it. It's destined to continue to pull in a wider circle of readers for the exceptionally talented Graham Joyce.
