Sarah Broadhurst's view...

What is a ghost? How powerful is belief? Can something imaginary take on a life of its own? Michael Marshall’s new thriller asks these questions and more. Unconnected to his excellent Straw Men series, this is a creepy and intriguing tale of urban unease, unfulfilled love and people not everyone can see. The cover with faint shadows behind the words and figures is brilliantly evocative of the mood of the book; there are shadows behind all of us, memory plays tricks and to resort to cliché, we are definitely not alone. I’ve always loved Marshall’s work, the sci-fi, the thrillers and this new ‘creepy’ style. Old fans, this one’s great; new readers, an excellent place to start.

If you like Michael Marshall you might also like to read books by David Morrell, G M Ford and Mark Billingham.

Synopsis

We are Here by Michael Marshall

For David, it should have been the perfect day. But a chance encounter changes everything when a stranger follows him, and then passes by close enough to whisper: 'Remember me'. Soon David realises that this man wants something from him ...something very personal, that he may have no choice but to surrender. Meanwhile, John Henderson does his girlfriend a favour and agrees to talk to a friend who believes she's being stalked by an ex-lover. But the problem is more complex than anyone could imagine.

Reviews

An intelligent and profoundly unsettling novel - GUARDIAN

On one hand this is an absorbing thriller, on the other it provokes us to mistrust our perceptions of reality, to doubt the facts of our familiar surroundings... Engrossing and uncanny. - DAILY MAIL

Yet another engrossing thriller from an author who remains a cut above the rest, always writing from the heart, aches and all. We Are Here... and we're not going anywhere. - ALTERNATIVE MAGAZINE

Another winner from a master of his game, We Are Here is a welcome addition to Michael Marshall's growing catalogue. Part crime, part horror, part urban fantasy, it should appeal to new and old readers alike with its mixture of dark comedy, horror, mystery and abrupt violence. Fast-paced, tightly-plotted and beautifully-written, We Are Here packs thrills and chills into an intelligent story that, despite its fantastical elements, never loses its plausibility or sense of realism. - READERDAD.CO.UK
