Publisher Comments:

An intelligent and page-turning thriller from the international bestselling author of Killer Move.

It should've been the greatest day in David's life. A trip to New York, wife by his side, to visit his new publisher. Finally it looks as though the gods of fate are going to lift him from schoolteacher to writer. But on his way back to Penn Station, a chance encounter changes all of that. David bumps into a stranger who covertly follows him, and then, just before they board the train home, passes him by close enough to whisper: "Remember me."

The stranger follows them back to where they live, and it isn't long before David realizes that this man wants something from him...something very personal, that he may have no choice but to surrender.

Review:

"Marshall combines mystery with urban fantasy to create an eerie, convoluted tale of shadow beings living between the cracks of our world. While visiting New York City, writer David Miller encounters a stranger who says cryptically, 'Remember me.' Meanwhile, John Henderson (protagonist of 2009's Bad Things) and his girlfriend, Kristina, investigate her friend's stalker, who they discover belongs to a society of mysterious entities. These people, who call themselves 'friends,' might be ghosts or forgotten imaginary friends whose creators have grown to adulthood. They have their own factions and agendas, some of which threaten John, Kristina, David, and those David loves. While allusions to John's past can be distracting, and some explanations are delayed so long that readers might be tempted to flip ahead for context, Marshall depicts interactions involving John and Kristina with realism and warmth. He excels at endowing the ephemeral 'friends' with complex motives and emotions, making them as engaging as his most finely drawn flesh-and-blood characters." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
