Meet Abbey Whistler. She’s just died at the age of eighty and waits in her hospital room to be taken to the afterlife. But she quickly learns that crimes committed while alive actually do have repercussions when you die. Last Dance of a Black Widow is a sobering 3,000 word short story that explores the death of a life lived poorly.

Michelle’s Review:

The idea of a black widow looking back on her life after death is one that intrigued me into downloading this free ebook. However, although the overall concept was a great one, I thought it read more like an explanation rather than a story. All of the actions of her life were told by someone else instead of shown to the reader, and that left me feeling detached and mostly uninterested in what the black widow had done.

It wasn’t a bad read, and for being free it certainly passed the time, but as for whether I’d recommend it or not, I’m not sure.
