"Gruesome crime solving type novel"

This is a Shaun Hutson type gruesome horror.

It starts off quite slow and boring... like a crime novel - trying to solve the mystery behind a murder. The unusual thing is that the detective is the murdered victim!

Half-way through, the book it gets really twisted and has a very original storyline - involving possesion of dead bodies!

It is a bit like watching a horror movie. You follow the main character, deceased, who sees people getting killed but he can't do anything about it... just how you scream at characters in a horror movie "don't answer the front door" etc, you will scream the same thing at people in the book! It is compelling... you constantly want to know what is going to happen next.

You may also, inadvertently, become attached to the murderer and sympathise with him/her in the end - at least I did! The mystery behind the killers reasoning is quite sad and tear-jerking!

It is an unusual type of story for James Herbert... but be warned that it is quite disturbing and gory in parts.

I can't imagine how he came up with the idea for this! Unless it was actually based on a true story?

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.
