Publisher's Summary

Helen West is coming to terms with her husband's death and trying to cope with her six-year-old son's grief. Jake suffers from nightmares, and visions of what he calls his 'other' life. He talks about a boy called Jacob and a place known only as 'the island'.

Helen's journey to find the source of Jake's torment leads them to North Wales, where the university town of Bangor is in lockdown following a series of student abductions.

When Jake's nightmares start to mirror the abductions, Helen begins to believe her son might have second sight. But what could Jake's island possibly have to do with these crimes? And how can they help without putting their own lives in danger?

It seems that decision will be Jake's alone.

    "Mystical murder mystery"

    This is an intriguing novel set mostly on the rugged coastline of North Wales. There are two storylines which at first seem worlds apart but are actually linked in an interesting way.

    On the one hand we have a university city which is being terrorised by a serial rapist and murderer, the crimes are chilling but handled with great subtlety by the author. We then meet young widow Helen who is concerned about her son Jake due to his disturbing nightmares, she seeks help from unusual sources when mainstream medicine lets her down. These two strands are woven together and lead to a dramatic, tense pay-off.

    The book is skillfully written and the characters are engaging; you come to care about Helen, Jake, Gareth and Mia. I enjoyed the blend of history, the paranormal and gritty crime drama. The entire story is well paced and handled with the touch of a more experienced author.

    Would you listen to Closure again? Why?

    Yes, great story with a lot of subplots


    What about Catherine O'Brien’s performance did you like?

    Very good performance except she does a lousy southern accent


    Any additional comments?

    Hoping for a sequel

    "Excellent Mystery"

    This is the second in a trilogy but it is fine as a stand alone. You don't need to read the first one before you listen to this. I liked the mystery and was surprised at the twist at the end. The characters were likeable and engaging and the narration was excellent. I am looking forward to the next one!! (Disclosure: I received this free from the narrator)
