Amazon Review

The title Nobody True is a complicated set of puns on its own plot; adman Jimmy True has no body because he was off on one of his regular astral jaunts when someone stuck him through the heart and carved him up like meat. His rather privileged position as an invisible observer of his own murder investigation enables him to discover uncomfortable truths about almost everyone he knows--his wife, his young daughter, his business partner--and a darker set of truths about the serial killer whose victim he appears to be. Jimmy has many problems with trust--his paranoid mother and absent father have seen to that--and at first his posthumous experiences confirm all his worst dreads. This is a book about learning valuable lessons and not thinking simple versions of the truth are necessarily the most accurate ones; it is among the most odd Herbert horror thrillers and like several of his best books has an attractive emotional core underneath all the gore and nightmare. Occasional wordiness and too much occultist waffle about dreaming, death and soul travel do not stop this also being intermittently one of his most gripping. --Roz Kaveney

Review

More provocative and disturbing fare from Herbert. What happens when you lose your body? Jim True knows. He has returned from an out-of-body experience to find he has been brutally murdered and his body mutilated. No one can see him, no one can hear him, no one, except his killer, knows he still exists. Freed from his body, True embarks on a quest to find his killer and discover why and how he has managed to survive. As he closes in on his murderer, True discovers that even the very people he loved and trusted have betrayed him. He meets his killer, a sinister figure who can also leave his body at will. An epic battle ensues between them. James Herbert has a guaranteed audience, and they will flock to buy this one.

Use to do this in my dreams when I was younger. But it was just dreaming ,the details were not so good although I did duck to get under bridges and pylons haha. I did feel sometimes that personal opinions came into the book, ie religion, mps, the queen s job which by the way I would not like either, but it was a good read. It also seems to me that to have all the time in the world and no worries about money would eventually lead to some kind of acceptance and pity and ergo empathy with good and bad but we plod on.

I read reviews for this book and one said this had to be in the top five of James Herbert books. I was not disappointed started off taking me back one the first page, slightly disturbing at first but couldn't put the book down, loved the characters and a very different story I would highly recommend this book.
