How does a ghost find a way to keep his house from being haunted? Well, posession is nine-tenths of the law…
A ghost walks into a lawyers office. It honestly just sounds like the beginning of a really bad joke. And, honestly, with the tone of the Blood Lite III collection, I was kind of expecting a really, really bad joke. Something about how lawyers are zombies zapping the life (and money) out of the world. But, although this point is kind of hiding in the story, it’s more about the law of possession.
I also liked the twist at the end of the tale – possession, ghosts and zombies collide in a way that made me laugh and be constantly entertained. The conclusion left me smiling and giggling for at least five minutes after I turned the last page.
