The Dead Path tells the gripping story of a broken man, Nicholas Close. A terrible accident has left him a widower and awoken in him the ability to see the dead. Now, he can't escape visions of tortured spirits, their last moments caught in horrible, endlessly replaying loops.

Nicholas leaves London and returns to Australia, where he is disturbed to see that a heavily treed tract of land in his childhood suburb has somehow escaped development. These woods have haunted Nicholas since he was a boy, and now he knows why: he sees the ghosts of terrified children being dragged from the path into the grinning maw of dark trees.

When another local child goes missing, Nicholas himself becomes a suspect, yet he alone knows the girl has been taken into the woods. If he does not act against whatever resides among the shadowy trees, more innocents will be murdered. But the force he resolves to confront is old, cunning, and evil...and wants Nicholas for itself.

    " Was great! Written very well and piqued my interest and held it through the entire book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/22/2014

    " I'm not a horror fan but I loved this story. It was more of a suspense mystery in my opinion but the horror elements were essential and complimented the story without smothering it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shasta | 1/6/2014

    " This book was great! If you like Stephen King you will love this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thasc | 12/25/2013

    " Things really picked up pace after a rather slow start. A gripping read, with an interesting twist at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly Lynch | 11/28/2013

    " The description of Nicholas crawling through the spiders was brilliant. Really good book so far! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cassie | 11/24/2013

    " I really didn't like this book very much at all. While the idea had promise, the execution was poor. If I ever read the word "bitumen" again it'll be too soon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julia Bardwell | 10/8/2013

    " Best "scary" book I've read in ages! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suzanne | 10/1/2013

    " Tried it, gave it the 50 pages. Just was not interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 9/28/2013

    " Very creepy with a twist at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy | 8/8/2013

    " It reminded me of a Stephen King book. I loved his writing and got sucked in right away. It had an amazing and surprising ending!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori Rumore | 7/14/2013

    " A bit slow at first, but a little repetitious in places. Also, seems to require knowledge of Australian slang and shrubberies. Overall, though, a good haunted woods/witchy story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 7/9/2013

    " Scary! Great atmosphere. A bit less scary once you get a clearer sense of what's going on, but when is that not so in a horror novel? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly | 6/12/2013

    " Kept me wanting to pick it back up, so that's a good thing! Sort of gave new meaning to "I see dead people." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 5/30/2013

    " Interesting. An homage to King's It? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny | 4/5/2013

    " Apart from an over-use of metaphors and similies, this is a top read. Fans of horror will love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathan | 3/30/2012

    " Fantastic debut by a Brisbane author. Very tightly written, some chilling moments and a great twist at the very end. Highly recommended. Nudging 5 stars, to be honest. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 2/11/2012

    " Easily one of the most depressing and morbid books I've ever read. I found nothing interesting in the plot, I was never able to relate to any of the characters. This book was a complete waste of time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Astrid Cooper | 1/25/2012

    " Excellent story: atmospheric and characters well-crafted. It is scarey! But a fantastic read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cassie | 4/27/2011

    " I really didn't like this book very much at all. While the idea had promise, the execution was poor. If I ever read the word "bitumen" again it'll be too soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sadie | 4/18/2011

    " Amazing descriptions and the plot was very well written. The author has a talent for metaphors and the use of adjectives. Couldn't put it down and loved the twist of the fantastical in this. Loved it - haven't checked yet but Im hoping he has written others. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jo | 4/12/2011

    " Slow & Boring one of the worst books I have read for a very long time. "

    " Its a witch and she is horny or wants to conquer the town,...ehh I still cant figure that part out "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 3/12/2011

    " I can't get enough of spooky books. This was scary in more ways than one. The main character has started to see dead people and the way that they died. EVERYWHERE! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 2/27/2011

    " I read this one all the way through. I really enjoyed it, although entirely too many spiders for my taste. "
