Intelligently written paranormal suspense. The Dead Path is a haunting tale of tragedy, loss and all consuming evil. Filled with deftly written prose that will march you steadily along the path of madness into a world of horror that is at once believable and terrifying. Irwin's imagery is vivid and visceral. This is an author not afraid to thrust the reader into a living nightmare. Nicholas Close is a realistic character facing the guilt and sorrow of his wife's recent death, the terror of his new ability to see the dead, and the pull to set his feet on the path to the woods where his lost his childhood innocence and first learned the meaning of true fear. The Dead Path is a beautifully written novel with an intriguing series of grisly murders, a realistic combination of magic and ghostly visions, and a place of darkness that will leave you looking over your shoulder when next you venture into the woods.
I highly recommend The Dead Path to readers of ghost stories, horror, mystery thrillers, urban fantasy, and especially to fans of haunting paranormal suspense.
