I Can See You

I Can See You by David Haynes. What splendid stuff!  This is most definitely a 'turn off the phone' book and I read it all in one go. 
Do you believe in ghosts? Chris is forty years old, the age his own father was when he died, and he begins to see a frightening figure - and not just in his dreams. She starts to appear in real life too and the black voids where her eyes should be seem to want to pull him into oblivion. Is he going mad? We all know that our past can come back to bite us, but can it bite our children – and their children…? A chilling thought.
 
This is the story of a family haunted down the generations. We watch a man apparently losing his mind. Slowly, gradually, others share the horror. Where did it all go wrong and can Chris do anything to change it? The Cornish coast and the English weather almost become characters in the drama which is played out in this family. It's a gripping book which I read at a single sitting.

Do you believe in ghosts? You might now.

RE: I Can See You

I love 'turn off the phone' book - the highest praise in our modern world!

Excellent review. I hope this is another hit for Mr Haynes, it certainly deserves to be.

It does indeed. It's the way he tells 'em!

RE: I Can See You

Here's my review

Since Chris' father died when he was a boy, Chris has been haunted by nightmares. But now it is coming to a head and his son is getting nightmares too. He needs to go back to Cornwall and exorcise the demons from his and his father's past.

This is another creepy story by this author. Things can be meandering along and then the tension is ramped up. The author's descriptions are extremely compelling and I was biting my nails at times.

Thinking back on this now, I can feel the greyness and dampness of Cornwall. Which to me shows what a great storyteller David Haynes is.
Hedgehogs rock.
