Publisher's Summary

Michael Ryan was the author of a runaway bestseller, Space Coast, but its publication coincided with his wife's murder in a bank raid. Now he's back to face the ghosts of his past.

Michael met Claire when she was dragging Paul de Luca, detective novel writer and owner of a porn shop, out of the sea after he'd lost his feet in a shark attack. Claire was living with local hard man Tommy, a Gulf War vet, at the time and Tommy was not impressed with Michael's interest in his girl. When Tommy leaves town to be a roadie for a band playing a six-week stint on a cruise ship, Michael falls in love with Claire, they marry and he writes his novel. But then Claire is killed in the bank raid.

Ten years later Michael returns to the scene of the crime to exorcise the ghosts of the past and try to write his second novel. But he discovers the grim truth behind his wife's murder and encounters the strangest of small-town behaviour...

    "Good Listen"

    Normally can't be doing with supernatural or ghost type storylines but bought this in the sale for 3.99 and got a bargain. Well written engaging storyline and importantly well read. If it go's in the next sale buy it but don't pay ?20.

    "Do you believe in ghosts?"

    I love this audiobook, I originally rented it from my local library and was delighted it was in the sale here, so snapped it up! A young writer loses his wife and drifts aimlessly for a couple of years until he's invited back to a memorial for the victims of the crime in which his wife died. Suffering from severe headaches, the writer starts to see ghosts and hopefully, his wife.
