I rate this book as one of James' best so far. The plot was brilliant, the suspense was brilliant and the conclusion was brilliant. What more can I say 'brilliant'!
I couldn't put this book down for a second and I strongly suggest anyone who hasn't read it should.
It contains some very strong characters that you can't help but relate to. The way the book is written, you are there with them the whole time. You smell the smells they do, see the things they do, live the horror they do.
Again, it's brilliant.
Well done Peter James for creating yet another masterpiece.
Peter James got me hooked on reading, for which I am thankful. Until myencounter with a Peter James book no book held my interest for long and Iwould read a few pages and get bored. Then I read my first Peter Jamesbook called Faith. Which was enthralling, so I picked up another one ofhis books called Denial and again was hooked. My third read of his was nodifferent, keeping me intrigued from start to finish.
James has a knack of creating the suspense that is common among filmthrillers. He writes with style that he should be proud of and which haskept me at least reading. He creates situations which are totallybelievable, giving details of everything every step of the way. He hasobvious knowledge of medical matters adds to the suspense as he keeps youdangling.
James himself has gone from strength to strength and now deals in TVseries and movies, as well as still writing. And did you know he¡¯s motherwas a glove maker to the queen?

The story starts off with the burial of Sally Donaldson but afterwards it seems noises are being heard, coming from her grave! People think they are imagining things but eventually an exhumation order is granted.
Meanwhile we hear about Harvey Swire, an eighteen year old lad with plans to attend medical school and become a doctor. On a bike ride one day, he has an accident and is hit by a car. Suddenly he is watching everything from above and is outside of his own body! He sees his mother who is dead and she tells him "God is very unhappy with you"!
We also hear about a local journalist Kate Hemmingway who wants the story on the exhumation. She manages to witness the event and is horrified to discover that it seems Sally Donaldson was actually buried alive!
The story then flits between Harry and Kate until one day Kate has a car accident herself and is rushed to hospital. She is operated on but there is just one problem - she is still awake but cannot scream, shout or move and there is a certain doctor in attendance named Harvey Swire! She then experiences an out of body experience and sees her dead brother who is trying give her a warning.
I did enjoy this book and I read it really quickly but I wouldn't say it is quite as good as Faith or Denial. I would still recommend it though, and I look forward to reading more books by Peter James, I'm hooked now!
Not for the faint hearted, this tale has an admirable heroine in Kate, a persistent journalist who is prepared to go to the most shocking lengths to get to the bottom of a story that her editor seems to want to hush up - the story of a young bride who was apparently buried alive. It's clear that James knows what he is writing about - Kate is a very convincing journalist, who has to keep covering local items as well as chasing up her big story and the medical details feel authentic as well. His villainous doctor, Swire is truly horrific, taking into account the way we trust medical personnel with our lives and the ending really made my hair stand on end. Definitely worth reading.

Not a boring moment in it. Fast paced, with scarily thoughtful "could this really happen?" Would love to see a screen version😏Published 2 months ago by C Lloyd
Oh my goodness, this kept me reading, then having to stop. Quite scary, but what a fabulous book. The ending keeps you guessing too.
Well written, it flows well.
A horrid, chilling story. But had to finish it because I needed to know whether or not Dr Swire got his deserved punishment No more Peter James for me.Published 2 months ago by Mrs. Gillian F. Harding
