Abstract:

THOMAS USHER HAS A MOST TERRIBLE TALENT. 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. Mashing together the grittiest British police procedural with dark supernatural terror, author Gary McMahon creates a refreshingly new take on horror fiction. FILE UNDER: Horror [See the Dead / Skin Trade / Beyond Reality / A Sacrifice].
