This is a haunting story in every way possible. Don’t stop your hands from clutching the book because terror reigns on every page.
A little girl called Sophie kissed her doll’s head as she slid from the balcony of the fourteenth floor building. Jack Nightingale was too late to save her from falling although he was nearby.
Is everyone he meets going to call out “Jack Nightingale”? Even strangers on the street? No wonder he tries to run away from his life.
The hellions of Death seek him out at every possible moment. And he seeks, through supernatural means, to find out what is going on. His secretary, Jenny believes in him and his innocence, but that’s not enough to help him. He has to find the little girl Sophie who lost all her family and then decided to take her own life.
This is a different kind of thriller, much like a ride on a roller coaster. If it is possible to research satanic worship and other supernatural things, then Stephen Leather has really done his homework.
The end is mind blowing and challenges all your beliefs about death. Whew, it is a really good read.
