Between life and death lies an epic war, a relentless manhunt through two worlds...and an unforgettable love story.
The last thing FBI agent Will Brody remembers is the explosion - a thousand shards of glass surfing a lethal shock wave.
He wakes without a scratch.
The building is in ruins. His team is gone. Outside, Chicago is dark. Cars lie abandoned. No planes cross the sky. He's relieved to spot other people - until he sees they're carrying machetes.
Welcome to the afterlife.
Claire McCoy stands over the body of Will Brody. As head of an FBI task force, she hasn't had a decent night's sleep in weeks. A terrorist has claimed eighteen lives and thrown the nation into panic.
Against this horror, something reckless and beautiful happened. She fell in love...with Will Brody.
But the line between life and death is narrower than any of us suspect - and all that matters to Will and Claire is getting back to each other.
From the author of the million-copy bestselling Brilliance Trilogy comes a mind-bending thriller that explores our most haunting and fundamental question: What if death is just the beginning?

I didn't personally care for the story. there was a lot of wondering around on other planes of existence. I had a hard time picturing them.
I think that it should have had an American narator. As an American, the accent wasn't quite right and many times disappeared. the characters are all from the US, so why would you use a narrator with a British accent?

Creative but too complex
I have liked other Sakey novels more than this one.
Though the story theme is very creative, I thought the various elements of the story were a little drawn out and difficult to follow. In addition, I thought a few the subplots were a bit overdone. I had a hard time deciding if the general feel of the novel was sci-fi suspense or romance.
Finally, I think Ms. Williams is an excellent performer with a lot of age, gender and situational range. However, I thought casting a colonial English - accented performer to represent primarily 2 American FBI characters may not of been the best fit.
Nonetheless, I'm glad I listened to the book and will listen to Sakey and/or Finty Williams again.

I loved Saikey's other books and was excited to read his new one. This was a big disappointment. The concept of an afterlife is one already fraught with difficulty and this was not handled well. Flinty William's British take on American characters and accents also didn't work and the reading was miscast.

Had me on the edge
I was captivated from the beginning. Was so tense and on edge most of the time and had to remind myself to relax and breathe! Can't wait for the movie. Very well written and narrated.
