This story grabbed me from the first line and wouldn't let go! I was up reading most of the night and woke clutching the book in the morning. The characters are believable and sympathetic, the dialogue flows effortlessly, and the story is hair-raising to anyone who ever lay in bed waiting for the thing that went bump in the night to appear. A great read! I will look for more from this author.

Not for me.

I did force myself to keep reading the book and finish it, just didn't like it.

    Looking for new authors, and stumbling upon Brian Freeman, I bought this bargain ebook.. I loved it! Memories are made of this! I usually don't like a back-and-forth timeline, but this was done so smoothly I had no trouble reading from one time or the other. The child is endearing and his adult self keeps a high level of anxiety/tension; so much so that I couldn't put it down! I highly recommend this book and will look for more by this author.
