A husband confronted by his jealous wife . . . an old man abandoned so his grandson can claim his inheritance . . . a fifteen year-old boy disowned because of his handicap. All of them are dead. All of them have returned. And they have come for revenge.
James Harris is thirty-six years old, divorced, and has a sixteen-year-old rebellious daughter to contend with. His chaotic life is thrown into further turmoil with the phone call bearing news that his parents have died in tragic circumstances. Forced home to attend the funeral, James steps back into a world he’d tried so hard to forget.
Nash is a small farming community in rural England: picturesque and serene, but it has secrets—violent, horrific, depraved secrets. Wanting to keep their business hidden, someone is not about to let James leave. But when an unexpected visitor arrives in the village searching for James, things take a horrific turn for the worst and he is forced to face the horrors of his past if he is to have any hope of survival.
I received this book to give an honest review.
I know we should never judge a book by its cover but let me say this I LOVE this cover! It just screams pick me up!
I was not expecting this book to go the route that it did, and for that it was awesome.
James Harris left his home town when he was 18 and he vowed never to be back. He had a rough childhood and we don't really learn about that until his daughter Ruth discovers an old diary of his that he has hidden.
It seems that Nash is not quiet place it seems to be! When people start dying James learns that something more dark is going on in the family home than he ever realized. As the story unfolds we slowly get to see what James went through when he was child and it was not pretty!
The relationship that James has with his daughter Ruth is very amazing. James will do anything he can for Ruth and will try to protect her with everything he can.
The book is very descriptive and the story line flowed! I can say the way the ending came about I liked that. I think it was the perfect way to end the book that brought so much heartache to those all around!
If the author writes good stories like this one I will be looking into more of his work!
Now living and working in Norway, Dylan J. Morgan was born in New Zealand and raised in the United Kingdom. He writes during those rare quiet moments amid a hectic family life: after dark, with limited sustenance, and when his creative essence is plagued the most by tormented visions.
If you’re searching for that light at the end of the tunnel then stop looking—you won’t find it here.
