I claimed this ARC softcover at today's meetup - thanks! Novels that speculate about an afterlife can go in many different directions; will see how I like this one.

Later: Very odd book, mixing hints of the metaphysical with a not-too-distant-future science-fiction feel (a world where flawless holographic versions of long-dead celebrities or perfectly ordinary people wander the streets, many as part of advertising campaigns but, increasingly, just to populate the sidewalks while the flesh-and-blood folk tend to stay home glued to their devices...). The main character has a heart problem resulting in a kind of super-pacemaker that somehow attaches him to an afterlife - or does it? Things got rather confusing early on, with visions, alternate timelines, hauntings - and that poor, poor dog... [I admit I was put off by the running theme of the tragic and awful death of a house pet {rueful grin}.]
