Publisher's Summary

Dead Aware is a new tale from critically-acclaimed horror author and filmmaker Terry M. West. It is a harrowing tale written in screenplay format.

As a young man, Dunlavey had a hunger for forbidden knowledge. He sought out occult practices and dark, archaic rituals all over the world. Dunlavey's thirst for arcane wisdom sent him to New Orleans. He met and fell in love with Myra, a voodoo priestess. Myra preformed a sex magic ritual with Dunlavey. This ritual allowed him to open his mind's eye, his third eye, and see the dimensional rifts that lie between our world and other places. During the ceremony, Myra's husband, Falcon, interceded. He killed Myra, but left Dunlavey alive and cursed with an opened third eye.

Fast forward to the present. Dunlavey lives in New York City. He is a private investigator that assists the NYPD with any case that is deemed occult or unusual in nature. Having lived for so long with the curse, Dunlavey has become self-destructive. He is an alcoholic. He also abuses drugs and has relationships with the wrong women. His curse forces him to constantly see negative energy and spiritual manifestations. It is akin to constantly being on a bad acid trip. Dunlavey is able to protect his apartment and office using white candles and cleansing spells, but on the streets he is vulnerable to jarring psychic residue and creatures that lurk slightly beyond our veil that could be called forth with the turn of a phrase. Dunlavey is called in to investigate a series of murders. Transients are being heinously killed and reassembled in a way that Dunlavey has never seen in his researches. As Dunlavey is drawn into the case, he soon realizes that the killer is aware of him, and able to strike out at him through his visions.

    Any additional comments?

    Dead Aware by Terry M. West is a horror story told in screenplay format. This audiobook is about a private investigator that can talk to the dead. He sees what awaits in the afterlife and it’s not pretty, you could say its driving him insane. A very real horror story.

    "Dead Awake review"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Aware to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the paperback version, but I really like the audio version of the screenplay, so about the same.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The first character introduced in this screenplay seated in the office


    What does Gene Blake bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Life and voices to the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    It's interesting hearing an audiobook of a screenplay for the first time. Fantastic second scene.

    "Read as a Play"

    The story was good, but had I known that it was read as a play I would not have gotten it. It was to much repeating the characters names.
    I received this free for an honest review
