    James Barker is haunted by the death of a man who jumped in fron

    James Barker is haunted by the death of a man who jumped in front of a train he was driving. Despite the urging of his wife Chloe, he finds himself increasingly drawn to investigate the man's life, and what possessed him to commit suicide. It's not long before he is seeing visions of the dead man, both in his nightmares and in the waking world, and is forced to choose between abandoning his search to save his sanity and his marriage, or to pursue the clues all the way down to the dark truth of that night.

    Fiona Dodwell does compelling work in creating a feeling of compulsive need in Barker, and as he goes deeper into obsession, in keeping the supernatural suspense as to what is really happening and what is in Blake's fevered imaginings. The book relies more on atmosphere and suspense to draw readers in, all the way to its unflinching denouement. If you like your horror stories mixed with subtlety and suspense, I recommend trying this one.

    Riveting

    James Barker is the key witness to a suicide - one that has him tossing and turning at night. A man has thrown himself in front of his train, the memory of it burned deep into his mind. He's unable to accept the fact that someone can take their life in such a cold and callous manner. He's convinced himself that the man has had a plentiful life and wonders as to what can drive another to take his own life with such blatant disregard.

    His wife begins to fret because of his indifference, wondering if she might be the cause. Yet she knows that it's not possible, as she's done her best to take his feelings into consideration because of the ordeal that he's gone through. Chloe struggles to understand the demons that have taken over her husband, knowing that she must do her best to bring him out of the slump that he finds himself in so that they can find a sliver of happiness within their topsy-turvy world.

    Unable to let go of his obsession, James begins to dig deeper into the reasons behind Jeff Jones' decision to take his own life. He questions all those that have had something to do with Jeff himself, knowing that he needs to unlock those sordid secrets that the man has left behind. Secrets that will help put his thoughts, and the past, to rest.

    As he uncovers the truth bit by bit, James is certain that Jeff is out to get him. He does his best to protect his family, but he knows that time is growing short. Little does he know, Jeff has an obsession of his own - one that threatens to break apart James' family and steal the last of his sanity.

    Fiona's book is quite riveting. Once I started reading, I had a hard time putting it down. So much so, that I didn't do anything else till I'd read it completely. Truly recommend reading it. It's that good!
