Micro Mention "So Cold the River"

Michael Koryta

"So Cold the River," by Michael Koryta is a ghost story that is also a bit of a mystery, but the thing that impressed me the most about this novel was his descriptions of the West Baden hotel, which is a real place, and you should look it up.

If you go in for the audiobook version, I feel the little sound effect touches and musical flourishes are really well done. It's one of my favorite things about audiobooks and this one specifically.

There is a moment that snapped my suspension of disbelief, though, in this novel. A character is thrown from a moving vehicle, breaks her collar bone, and then like an hour later in the story, is performing CPR on someone. So, no, that's not a thing. Chest compressions are hard—like you've got to break someone's ribs to do it right—hard. If you've got a broken collar bone, I don't care how tough you are; you aren't pulling that off.
