John Belushi is Dead, the debut novel by Kathy Charles, is an interesting YA contemporary novel. This is more of a dark and edgy novel, not supernatural at all, just digs into the unhappy cases of some real Hollywood murders (the OJ Simpson case, Charles Manson murders, etc). I liked the mystery that surrounds Hank's character, and a possible love connection between Hilda and Jake adds another layer to the story.

It wasn’t intentional. I didn’t plan for it and I didn’t plan on doing it again. And I wish I could say that my first time felt right and natural and pure, but it didn’t. And I wish I could say that my first time felt right and natural and pure, but it didn’t en say that it was traumatic or painful. The best word for it was pleasant, or perhaps something more benign, like nice. We came together and we came apart and it was just nice.
John Belushi is Dead is quite an interesting book, one that provided me with a fascinating journey. Starting with Hilda and Benji’s interest in the macabre side of LA/Hollywood and its celebrities. The narrative is constructed in a very clever fashion by introducing its main characters in the middle of one of these raids and then interspersing the text with glimpses into their past. Benji, on the other hand has no similar back story and his motivations are a bit shadier. Why is this important? Because most of the book is spent on sites where death occurred or with the characters talking about death. And the author doesn’t shy away from graphic details either.
