A Corpse's Nightmare by Phillip DePoy

The dead can dream; I'll tell you how I know.

A little philosophy goes a long way, especially if it morbidly unusual - unusual at least for the everyday brain. The narrator does tell us how, or at least begins to tell us, but he certainly loves to beat around the bush, or in this case, beat around the page.

Overall, this is an example of how an opening line works well in conjunction with a title.

First thing said:

"Do you recognize me?"

At the end of my library copy a reader leaves a note about a plot hole but that might not mean there is one, though the handwriting is elegant and looks intelligent so maybe it is a problem. I will have to see.

Verdict: Pass
