Book Description:

What did you say?

The once silent world of Heather Lawrence is turned upside down when her husband, Andrew, admits her to a state of the art facility for surgery that enables Heather to hear and speak, an ability she lost in her teens.

Strangeness abounds as she hears voices that aren’t there and speaks words that are not her own, and she tries to navigate through her noisy new life.

Desperate for answers, Andrew searches for the surgeon that gave Heather her new lease on life, but turns up with more questions than when he started. He soon finds himself in need of a priest as All Hallows’ Eve approaches, and all traces of his wife disappear in front of his eyes.

Kim’s Review:

Yass! A Sian B. Claven book that I can recommend without worrying about offending anyone! I really liked this book. It was simple and straightforward and with a twist that I didn’t see coming. There’s not much to say about it; it just needs to be read. My only real criticism is that I want more. My horror itch was scratched, but come on, more detail! I really liked it!
