The Obituary Writer

by Lauren St.John

Crime / Mystery eBooks of the Month

The Obituary Writer Synopsis

Nick Donaghue, a handsome young obituary writer for THE TIMES, leads a charmed existence until he is caught up in one of Britain's worst ever train crashes. When he survives unscathed, his friends and colleagues consider him the luckiest man alive. Only Nick knows the truth - that he is tormented by horrific nightmares. When they start to appear grimly prescient, his meticulously constructed urban life is derailed. Escaping to the wilds of Cornwall strikes him as the answer, especially after he becomes captivated by a beautiful woman and a tempestuous horse he sees playing on a beach. But when his nightmares return, they threaten his fragile new world. As Nick struggles to understand his dreams, his demons and, most dangerously of all, his passions, he realises that falling in love might come at a terrible price.

The Obituary Writer Press Reviews

 It's interesting to see how a successful children's writer makes the transition to adult fiction, and St John pulls it off brilliantly  - THE TIMES

 

Lauren St John's prose is warm and light and she keeps the plot trotting along ... St John's breezy evocation of Cornwall's rugged cliffs, sandy shores and gnarly yet good-hearted villagers gives it ample seasonal appeal. Moreover, the ending might surprise you. -  DAILY MAIL
