Read full description of the books:
My first but not my last Glenn Cooper read. This was a book with a real difference, an extremely interesting plot and the ability to make you think hard all the way through. Entertainment indeed but depth not to be denied. I found this book really truly fascinating.
A brilliant neuroscientist, obsessed with death since his own childhood near death experience, resorts to drastic measures to prove the existence of the afterlife.
Boston. It is the most complex investigation that Cyrus O'Malley has ever faced. The FBI special agent looks at photos of the victims for the umpteenth time and wonders why, after being strangled, the serial killer has drilled a tiny hole through their skull. For Cyrus, the case becomes an obsession. To solve it, he will be forced to give up everything he holds dear.
England, 1988. It is the most overwhelming feeling that Alex Weller has ever had. In ecstasy, at the pivot point between life and death, the boy sees a river of light flowing in front of him and on the other side there is his father, joyfully urging him to join him. But Alex cannot move, and suddenly he is back at the site of the terrible car accident that has just killed his parents.
Since that time, Alex has had only one goal: to understand and relive that experience. Even if he is forced to kill.
Alex Weller is a very clever and enigmatic man (and character), through whatever means he deems necessary he is seeking for the answer on human beings crossing over to the other side, to do this he has to get very close to death and dying and it's not pretty.
He runs a group that meets monthly, great minds who all have an interest on one level or another in the reality or proof of life after death, these are intelligent men and women, seeking something that has been intangible for so long. Alex wants to reach that place, again and again, and again.
Alex creates something amazing, something that in his mind will change the world forever. He forges ahead with this master plan to help humanity and the wake he leaves on his journey is outstanding.
This book is brilliant, there is SO much too it without it getting to be too much or too confusing, the plot is tight and unique, the characters are very real and for me easy hear and see in my imagination. The book made me wonder "what if" such a situation ever did occur. It makes you question your choices if you had them.
Meanwhile the FBI are looking for a serial killer who leaves a signature mark of a small drill mark into the brain of the victims, but why? For what purpose?. Cyrus O'Malley is determined, loyal, and passionate about finding out not only why, but who and making it all come to a halt before another victim is found.
How do the story lines intersect? THAT my friends is the key to the book, from then on in you will be so eager for more that pages will be turning and you can forget your surroundings around you. A nail biter at the end of the book, I almost forgot to breathe! Very rewarding reading and I am keen to read more of Glenn Cooper, a talented writer. 4.5 stars.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a review, many thanks.
