Como voy a mi aire y me entero tarde las cosas, está que es la primera novela de Joe Hill, es en orden, la tercera suya que leo. Me estoy haciendo fan de este tipo y pusieron sus ebooks en Amazon de oferta un día y aproveché para hacerme con este y su recopilación de relatos por un precio ridículo.

“El Traje del Muerto”, titulo mas descriptivo que el original, nos plantea una historia de fantasma, en singular. Judas Coyne, nombre artístico de una estrella del rock cincuentona y su ligue veintañero de turno, sufren el acoso y derribo de un fantasma, que Jude ha comprado por internet. Tiene una pequeña colección de objetos macabros y cuando vio la oferta de comprar un fantasma, que parece ir unido aun viejo traje, no se lo pensó dos veces.

El problema es que la información era correcta y en efecto compra un fantasma de verdad y este fantasma en concreto tiene mala leche, un total desdén por las vidas de los que rodean a Jude y una venganza que cumplir. Pudiera parecer que va a ser una historia de fantasmas y poco mas, pero la cosa es mas compleja de lo que parece, según Jude vaya dándose cuenta del qué, el porqué y el quien. Lo cual nos llevará a una lucha por sobrevivir y vencer a este espíritu tan cabrón y a vivos del mismo calibre.

Aunque yo esté ahora en crisis de lectura de libros (voy por temporadas), lo recomiendo totalmente, como todos los de Joe Hill y aunque sin tremendas complejidades, si que las tiene, teniendo en cuenta que es su opera prima y que aun teniendo los genes de su padre, los libros no los escriben los genes. Poniendo ademas un valor añadido, para todo lo que su señor padre falla en los finales, Joe Hill parece tener la lección aprendida, encargándose incluso de arreglar finales para su padre, como por ejemplo el de 22/11/63 que era complicado de cerrar satisfactoriamente.
