Silver Lake is the perfect place for Barbara Briggs to spend her afterlife in since the town is her creation and is quiet, small, and friendly. When Bab's husband Harry barrels through town in a trench coat, a fedora, and a 38 to fulfill a dream of becoming a sleuth, he upsets the town¿s serenity. His subconscious sets Sydney Longstreet, a deadly serial killer, loose on the unsuspecting living.

Harry and a real private detective Sam have to stop Sydney because his victims are coming to Silver Lake upsetting the delicate cosmic balance. The duo crosses the lake by boat trying to reach the land of the living. Harry manages to return, but forgets that he is already dead while Babs using the name Amelia begins to watch her grip on reality slip.

T. M. Wright has written an atmospheric horror story populated by regular people who happen to be dead, but caught in a strange and dangerous situation. Even the dead have to be careful in Mr. Wright's world. The characters are believable and fascinating as their constricted world changes. Any moment readers will expect Rod Serling to shout about a signpost visited by a Mr. Wright.

I enjoyed reading this novel. I had hoped, though, that all of its crazily pieced-together paragraphs would, in the end, add up to something and provide some resolutions....but it just left me more in the dark about the story and its characters. And this is one of those stories (SPOILER!!) that ends as it began, giving the impression that the characters will be involved in an 'infinite loop' kind of scenario. This was an interesting device used in fiction....when it was new and fresh, but by this point in time, I (for one) need more satisfaction to a story's climax when I've burned several hours of my time reading quickly to arrive at SOME substantial destination. Overall, though, it is an intersting story...if you don't mind being toyed with for about 300 pages, and crash landing with the final paragraph.

My only problem with this book was that I didn¿t read it sooner. This is an original, refreshing, and creepy novel by one of horror¿s veterans. There is no question T. M. is a great writer, but beyond that ¿ and more importantly ¿ he¿s a great storyteller. I breathed a sigh of relief after reading this book because I felt lucky that I stumbled upon his work. Many good authors get swept under the radar for whatever reason¿ bad marketing by publishers, readers not willing to take a chance on a new author, bad cover art, etc. But the good news is that I¿ve found him, and that¿s all that really matters. Thank you, Mr. Wright. You are truly inspiring.

What a wonderful story. By turns gripping, horrific, funny, and philosophical--sometimes all at the same time. I hear through the grapevine that there's interest in Hollywood about this never-been-done-before tale.
