Rarely do complex and imaginative noir novels come along that transcend the genre, elevating them into the best literary fiction. Why Ghosts Appear is one of those novels, a fully imagined world of a labyrinth of twists, existential dilemmas, rollicking violence, and deadpan humor. A fortuneteller hires a detective to find her missing son, an entomological illustrator. A startling clue leads the detective into the underground worlds of fortunetelling and "pleasure" tours. The missing son reminds the detective of an old case which ended badly and unresolved, and he is compelled to reopen it. As he investigates both, he finds his life becoming dangerously ghostlike.
