Harry is a man, sick with the flu, who hasn't slept in days. Anyone who's ever been in this situation will identify with Gifune's accurate descriptions of the symptoms suffered by those who have been severely sleep deprived. On top of all of this, the stability of Harry's life begins to crumble around he really seeing those "men" in black, the strange symbols around his home, or are they merely hallucinations caused by his insomnia? And what of the address that keeps popping

The writing in this book was very good. A dark vision, like nightmares that blended into nightmares. I'm not sure I understood what was going on after all, and that's hard to swallow. Sometimes it's good to question and ponder, but in this case, it was unsettling and unfulfilling. If the reader wants a story that is more about fears, regret, and doubt, with a pervasive sense of nebulous menace, they will probably appreciate this. For a complex mix of horror and emotional angst that ultimately ma ...more

Of course there were the true believers who thought everything was real and often refused to acknowledge facts to the contrary, and the totally closed-minded (who often falsely labeled themselves "skeptics" ) who refused to accept anything as real and approached everything from a point of disproving it rather than having an even remotely open mind. The truth, as in most things, Harry felt, was more than likely somewhere in the middle.

Sometimes love runs so deep it hurts, but when it turns to ang
Harry Fremont has the flu and has not slept for days. Things are getting weirder by the minute. Harry can see things others cannot see. He wished he couldn’t. Now all he has to do is figure out what is real and what is only in his mind. Not as easy, as it sounds.

Another great tale from one of the masters. Gifune builds tension and a growing sense of dread with his characters that is palpable. And he loves the rain. 4.5 Stars. Highly Recommended!

Poor Harry Fremont left at home with a bad case of the flu. His wife, away on a business trip, his illness worsens because of his insomnia. He cannot reach his wife, his mind seems to get away from him...

Very fast paced and unsettling. A stellar one from Gifune.

“Funny thing, time, how it all fit together despite such arbitrary beginnings and endings, the whole of it played out and calculated down to the very second, each breath, every sunset, dream and waking moment designed, the beat of every heart accounted for, each life a preordained piece of a much larger puzzle, a precisely measured unit in the infinite vacuum of space and time.” 0 likes
