An intelligent and profoundly unsettling novel
On one hand this is an absorbing thriller, on the other it provokes us to mistrust our perceptions of reality, to doubt the facts of our familiar surroundings... Engrossing and uncanny.
Yet another engrossing thriller from an author who remains a cut above the rest, always writing from the heart, aches and all. We Are Here... and we're not going anywhere.
Another winner from a master of his game, We Are Here is a welcome addition to Michael Marshall's growing catalogue. Part crime, part horror, part urban fantasy, it should appeal to new and old readers alike with its mixture of dark comedy, horror, mystery and abrupt violence. Fast-paced, tightly-plotted and beautifully-written, We Are Here packs thrills and chills into an intelligent story that, despite its fantastical elements, never loses its plausibility or sense of realism.
There's loads to enjoy here, and more than a handful of properly creepy moments and paranoid situations. After all, who's never had the nagging thought that someone's been through their stuff, or re-arranged their belongings, or might - just might - be in their house right now?
