Grief-stricken and desperate, Dennis Shore mails his publisher a novel he didn’t write. But after his plagiarized submission receives high praise, he encounters its aggrieved author. And as this vengeful soul threatens his career, his sanity, and even his life, Dennis begins to experience all the horrors of his own fiction.

Finally finding time to enjoy my first love... "reading" ... in a whole new way that fits into my busy schedule.
This book is in the Horror genre but is also a Christian novel? I don't feel like it was effective in either. I am the type who ALWAYS finishes an audio book...however, this one tried my patience. I became annoyed with the author after the first couple hours, debated abandoning my efforts after six and by the time I only had ninety minutes left I was listening just so I could get it over with.
The writing was atrocious at times...perhaps it's just me but I found myself annoyed by the author's over use of "this guy" and several other phrases. I felt cheated the story didn't flow better and irritated the main character made some just plan stupid choices. The ending was lack luster for me. Throughout the story I wondered was the main character being stalked or is he going crazy. I will not give away the ending but even after it was somewhat spelled out I still didn't feel satisfied nor was I convinced.
The narrator...well....he sounded as if he should have been reading a Mickey Spillane novel. He wasn't bad, mind you, just a little over dramatic in the suspenseful voice department for my liking.
All in all... that's 9hrs 23mins of my life I'll never get back.
