Thomas Usher has a terrible gift. Following a car crash in which his wife and daughter are killed, he can see the recently departed, and it's not usually a pretty sight.

When he is called to investigate the violent death of the daughter of a prominent local gangster, Usher's world is torn apart once more. For the barriers between this world and the next are not as immutable as once he believed.

A Hauntingly Intense Story

I enjoyed this book. It was well written and narrated. It is very edgy and there are triggers not subtitle for all readers. Particularly references of child sexual abuse and snuff porn. But it is just in the foundation of the story and not graphic llll

Better than expected

Interesting twists. The real evil turned out to be from an unexpected source. Could have used less descriptive of setting and more to nature of evil.

Boring

I tried to listen to this, I really did, but finally gave up at chapter 21.
Tired of the same stuff said over & over again, & the guy (first person story) constantly whining.
