FBI agent Will Brody is hunting down a sniper who is terrorizing the city of Chicago. Eighteen lives have been lost and there is widespread panic in the city. Claire McCoy is leading the task force and is romantically involved with Will. After this assignment they look forward to formalizing their lives together.
While investigating a tip on the sniper, Will enters a church and is engulfed in an explosion. Surprisingly, he wakes up without a scratch and is able to walk without any help. He is told he is in the Echo which is a parallel universe containing souls who died violently. While in the Echo you can see the living but lack the skills to communicate with them. Will must learn to relate to others who can’t see or hear him. Despite his limitations, he continues to investigate the sniper while finding ways to protect Claire and other innocent people.
This book is very unique and provides a combination of mystery, supernatural and romance. This is a different genre for me and I enjoyed this creative story from Marcus Sakey. A movie of this novel is currently in development.
