Review - Sleight of Hand

This is the synopsis from Smashwords:

Is it possible to con your way out of hell? Fifty-two year old Daniel Cabrero thinks so and why wouldn’t he? That’s how he spent his entire life. But Jonah his spirit guide has reasons of his own for making sure Daniel pays for all the suffering and misery he’s caused others. Still sometimes people can change, and maybe Daniel can keep his son from following in the same path.

My review: 5 stars

Plot: For a fictional novel, this book impacted me very much. I loved the entire story, from the Daniel's sudden death in the beginning to the emotional ending.

Characters: As much as Daniel was a selfish man, I felt sorry for him from the beginning. I understood him and knew why he felt the way he did. He was a character that was easy to connect with. Jonah, his spirit guide, was also an interesting character that I'm glad we got to know in-depth.

Setting: I liked that the people in the afterlife have the ability to change scenery at will, which made for an interesting span of settings. All of them fit well with the story without confusing the reader.

Overall: I never imagined a fiction book would make me rethink my life and how I live it. This book is so heart-felt and has a message that everyone should read.
