Dark

Darker than previous books. Great narration! In this particular book every relationship seems hopeless with no possibility of Redemption

Truly haunting..

So truly haunting, yet retained the excitement and twists of the other previous novels. I like this character, I like the twist of his “relationships” with the dead. I like that he does not have anyone he can turn to, to share with yet, lays himself bare in many ways. The story is a good one, and Angus King should always be the voice of Ben Westphall!

I can’t wait for the next In the series.

Nice start to a new series.

This is a different kind of investigative genre for me with a touch of clairvoyance. I hope he comes to understand his abilities in the future. Dont wait to long for book 4. Narration is very good.

Dear oh dear

Most unexciting book I have read for a long time I thought if I heard the phrase " I said" one more time I would scream, in fact at first it took me a time to tell what exactly he did keep saying, all in all very strange

Love this series

This is the last one and I do have to say it’s the least enjoyable. Oh I still enjoyed it it’s just too full of thoughts. I’m going to keep looking for Douglas Lindsays name. And will home Angus King continues to narrate. I really will miss this series.
