This review is from: The Survivor (Paperback)
Keller somehow survives a plan crash which has killed over 300 people but somehow he just walks away but he has lost all his memories of the incident. Being the co-pilot he feels responsible in someway, frustrated with the fact he can't remember what happened or how he survived and a strange irresistible force pulling him to the town of Eton where the crash had occurred he is determined to find out what happened. While investigating and some help from a friend Tewson (who is involved in the investigation) he soon finds something unease about it all that nobody can put there finger on.
A spiritualist/medium called Hobbs turns up saying the voices of the passengers have communicated with him and that they are angry and confused and they need his help for whatever purpose. After Keller shows him the door and getting on with his investigating, strange deaths start occurring in the town and he soon decides to give Hobbs a chance and they discover that among the souls of the passengers there is an evil spirit who is committing the killings and is corrupting the other souls and wants Keller life.
To save all the souls of the dead passengers and to stop the killings Keller & Hobbs must discover what happened to the plane which means unlocking Keller memories which may cost them there lives.
The Survivor has been the best James Herbert book I have read so far it really gripped me I just wanted to know the mystery of the crash. Lots of creepy stuff i.e an evil girl who carries a doll around just great James Herbert as usual :)
