A terrifying novel of a young man who is willing to defy everything. Even death...
Fabian Hightower has been killed in a car crash. At least, that is what a policeman is asking Alex, his mother to believe. But Alex knows she saw him that morning - at a time when he must have been dead.
When the funeral is over Alex tries hard to forget her bizarre experience. But her mind seems to be playing strange tricks on her, turning her grief into horror. When she turns to a medium her worst fears are realised. Fabian has unfinished business and he is determined to come back. But why?
Whatever the answer, something terrifies the medium so much she refuses to return. Alex longs to
turn to others for support. But there is a secret about Fabian that only she knows - a secret she must never share...
