The story was set in the town of Faith (such a brilliant name)with Cameron Dawson, the Deputy Sheriff, at the forefront of the investigations. He is an extremely likeable but unhappy character , due to a sad event in his past and I found myself empathising with him throughout.
The plots takes the reader through a trail of bloodthirsty , chilling events within the town but at the same time, running parallel in Albuquerque , Doctor Kyle Bancroft is experiencing paranormal visitations which eventually leads her to Faith and Cameron Dawson, where their lives become intertwined for the investigation.
The ending of the novel was superb! It was scary, gripping and unique and at the same time very sad. It was very well done and left me with no questions unanswered.
To conclude, this is a very well written and researched novel, very cleverly put together and keeps it’s audience captivated with every turn of the page .I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good horror story with many extra’s. In my opinion Mr Kaufman has set up the characters in such a way that they could now be used in many future novels .....I really hope I am right.
Stephen King, watch out, you have competition, this is a excellent piece of work!

I have just finished this book and it was excellent! I would highly recommend it to anyone that likes a fast paced thriller. Anyone that is thinking of buying or downloading this book do not hesitate, you won't be disappointed, it's a must for anyone that enjoys crime fiction.Personally,I think Simon Gould is up there with Harlan Coben and James Patterson,and as this is his first novel I am sure we are going to be seeing alot more of him .I am eagerly awaiting the sequel now..
This is an excellent and extremely well written book, which I thoroughly enjoyed from beginning to end. This story reads almost as an autobiography, a grandfather sharing poignant memories with his newly born grandson by way of astral travel and crystal ball gazing, visiting past events that were significant to the Grandfather’s life. The bonding between the two generations during these times is touching and unique. Throughout the book, I was always under the impression that the author is trying to relay to the reader the importance of memories and keeping alive the ‘spirit’ of loved ones that have passed on, therefore always to “remember”. This was for me, a moral. To conclude, in my opinion this book could be listed as a modern ‘Classic’. The author has a way of making the reader really feel the emotions and I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to read a story with depth and meaning, and yet, at the same time light-hearted and entertaining. Alejandro Canton has the ability to do both!

I thoroughly enjoyed this short, but not so sweet, horror story, which i read before going to sleep.Anyone with a nervous disposition,i wouldn't advise to do the same! I liked the particular style of writing,taking us from normal everyday life into a bizarre,stomach churning situation. I will certainly look forward to reading more from this Author,especially now a full length novel.
