I have mixed opinions on this book/author.
The strong points of this book are:
Characters and their development - I actually formed opinions of their personalities and some of their physical attributes. It was easy to continue the flow having such a good handle on the characters.
The plot was credible (at least for the first 80% of the book). I enjoyed the unraveling of the story as it grew. Plausible and interesting.
The writing style was fluid and interesting. There was never too mush attention

Online has one of those expansive plots that covers multiple storylines which eventually are all woven together to form a larger picture. As such, it makes it a bit difficult to sum it all up in a review without giving anything away or ending up writing a synopsis by mistake, but I will try.

All the storylines advance simultaneously, which makes for interesting reading. The author did a good job of never leaving one storyline for very long while he was advancing the others. He strung out enough d

This book very much surprised me. It was not what I expected, but better. I loved the suspense. The several storylines were woven together nicely. Just as I was starting to get into what I thought was going to be the whole plot, Mr. Blackburn adds a twist, and then another, and then even more. The characters are written so well that you feel emotional about what happens to them, good or bad.

I do admit, as a computer geek, it was a little creepy for me. It made my imagination run wild. As with As

The story of Brendan Lowe and his search for a life without leaving the hometown that he had grown up in and still lived. His wife divorced him because he was stuck in the same place that he had always been in. As an at-home data-based engineer he does not feel the need to go any where except out to the local coffee shoppe for his late night jolt of caffeine. He has fallen love with his boss whom he sees occasionally but he is too stuck in his life to try to start a relationship with her. He is ...more

It seems to me that the writer cut off every rule of writing style there is, at least genre related.
I enjoyed the first part of the story: the development of the characters, their personalities. I was shocked by the rate of insanity: some sick actions made me questioning the psychologically health of the author (how can you make *that* up?!), but the bottom line of good vs bad has been very clear expressed. I loved it.

Then the story became really fantastic. I do love supernatural stories, but af
