Book Description

Tyson Barrett dreams of having his old life back. The way things used to be before the torturous nightmares, before the insomnia, before his wife left with their young son, before his business began teetering on the verge of collapse.

Feeling like a man on the edge of a cliff with nothing to lose, he joins an underground trial for a new wonder drug.

But this cure carries a terrible, nerve-shattering price. One that will force him to confront the dark past he's spent a lifetime trying to forget.

The evil chasing him has never been far away and soon he will learn why some dreams were never meant to come true.

Warning: contains violence and language.

More About the Author

I grew up watching grainy reruns of The Twilight Zone and rereading worn-out copies of Raymond Chandler novels. Eventually, my taste for the unsettling and the inexplicable found an outlet in my short stories; two of which have been published: The Grip with Black Ink Horror and Last Call with Alienskin. I've written a handful of books to date. The latest is a post-apocalyptic series called Primal Shift about a worldwide amnesia that sends humanity back to the dark ages.

I'm always thrilled to hear from readers, so feel free to drop me a line at: griffinhayesbooks[at]gmail[dot]com.

I got this book free with no expectations and was immediately hooked, gripping all the way through and a great ending, which is always good as there are so few books that end well. Will be recommending and reading more of Griffins books.

The Haunted Eyeball's review! (Please google us for more reviews, & horror/new weird authors if you'd like a review of your work).

Tyson's nightmares are overwhelming him, fracturing his mind, his family life and his business. In a final, desperate measure he takes on a clinical trial of a new drug, allegedly designed to aid his sleep, which soon reveals some rather grim side effects. At first, things seem to be going well and it brings him considerable benefits. However, nothing is quite what it seems, least of all his encroaching nightmares and the real source of his problems. We reckon it's not exactly what the reader will expect either.

This unpredictability made Dark Passagea very compelling read. While at first it appears to be a typical thriller outline, and the order of character deaths are not really going to shock you, there were enough curveballs in the mix to keep us pushing on to the next chapter, eager to get to the next scene and chew on the next crumb of information. As we said, it's not quite clear what's going on until it all clicks near the end. Another character attempting to make sense of insanity is the ambitious, and obsessive, Doctor Hunter, and he is nicely woven into the uncanny web of Tyson's problems.

The tightly written characters were a pleasing range between banal, brave and pure evil. Really, really evil. But it's also great to have a real hero to root for amidst all the horror, and Tyson was a very likeable lead. Your eyelids will ache in sympathy as he battles his sleepless state, attempting to dodge his debilitating dreams. It was very easy to get behind him as the awful truth emerges, and the battles against his nightmares become increasingly lethal.

I read the reviews for this book so just had to read it. Unfortunately it didnt really scare me but was an excellent read and would recommend it but if you dont like being scared ignore some of the reviews as it is not all that frightening.
