Summary

When medium Beth Willis is given a message from a ghost, she steps beyond her world and into the spirit realm. D.I. Coleridge is a man marking time, until a call from Beth gives him a lead on an elusive killer who takes trophies from his victims. He is a killer who walks through both worlds, taking lives, with powers no mortal can possess. A man, but something else, too. If Coleridge and Beth are to survive, they must understand him...but some men cannot be fought and some creatures cannot be bested.

Death calls on us all in time. Will it call them home, too?

A supernatural thriller from the author of Left to Darkness, Rain, and A Stranger's Grave.

Make it Norfolk Virginia.

If you are unable to write vernacular English and only think in American then don't embarrass yourself by trying it. The characters talk in American idioms, and the narrator can't even pronounce English place names.
Please study British police behaviour before attempting to write about it. Tried hard but the whole thing was so awful I had to abandon listening.
Do yourself a favour and save your money and time.

Needs Editing

The although the story is reasonable the performance is terrible and needs to be edited. The reader coughs, repeats lines when she realises the correct inclination of the sentence, and rereads lines when she just gets them complete wrong. One crucial line "It was an easy death" is then (presumably) correctly reread "It was not an easy death." Come on Amazon/Audible vet your audiobooks before you release them.

No, Took me a while to like her, did not love her but respected her work and how hard she worked to make this enjoyable, she is no Jim Dale but I would listen to her again.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

There is something in the Dark to Fear
