He was still angry when he went to bed, and the dream-voice came.
"Yeah, you've said that." He was aware even in sleep that the anger was still with him. "Why don't you just go away?"
He instantly regretted the thought when an overpowering sense of fear, like being immersed in ice water, overcame him. The fear, he knew, was John's.
"Where would I go?"
The fear was replaced by a feeling of sorrow and loneliness so intense Elliott wanted to cry.
"I didn't mean that. I'm sorry. It's just..."
"I understand. It's very hard."
"But what do you want of me? What can I do?"
"I don't know."
His name is Smith, Elliott Smith. Created by ever-clever Dorien Grey, the mystery world's newest novice sleuth is at once smart, sexy, and immanently likeable. "His Name is John" is part mystery, part thriller, part romance, part modern-day ghost story. Keep this one on the night table, as it's sure to keep you reading long after lights out.
Each chapter leaves the reader desperate for more pieces of the puzzle, as one of the most unlikely and unique duos of crime fiction maneuvers their way through a maze of lost memories, family secrets, mistaken
identity, and murder.
