You want to put your readers through the wringer. Your character might die, might pull through, we’re all waiting to know. Will they make a rapid recovery? Remain permanently disabled? Return from a near-death experience to write books about life?
Today, we get a sneak peek of author Richard C. Hale’s thriller, Near Death:
For Jake Townsend, the loss was shattering. And every night for the past two years, he has relived the horror of what happened. The moonless night. The piercing screams. The horrific crash. The night his wife was taken from him. The last time he saw her alive.
Everyone tells him to move on. But for Jake, there can be no closure. A message appears in his dreams—a warning he is reluctant to heed.
The omens ignored, Jake finds himself caught between the desire to see his beloved wife again and disrupting the delicate balance of life and death. The technology he developed has shown him the path, and others will do anything to use it, but at what price?
He must choose, and the consequences may ultimately shatter his world.
