“Keane Reid is tired of living. He’s bored with his very existence following the suspicious death of his wife seven years earlier. He’s not interested in TV, reading, dating or a social life.

But when he is called on a routine plumbing job at a local pub, he discovers the corpse of a young girl crucified and nailed to a wall, her eyes torn out and a third eye carved into her forehead. Keane has seen this mark before, and soon his life is thrust between the present and past, reality and fantasy, darkness and light.

As Keane loses his grip on sanity, a long-forgotten shadow begins whispering to him once again, ushering him toward the void, where the ghosts of his past reside, waiting to show him what truly lies behind the veil. ”

****

Keane finds a girl nailed to a pub bathroom wall while out on a job. Killed in a similar fashion to his murdered wife, Teresa.

Re-opening the barely healed wounds of his past, Keane is forced to relieve every terrible second of his wife’s death.

The only thing he could do is run;  running was all he knew how to do. If he stopped running he knew he would be caught by the shadow that has stalked him all these years.

Keane’s Norwich is a bleak and haunted place. The desolation he feels, is projected into every pore of the city, giving it a surreal and isolated quality.

BloodEye is a tense chiller that slowly builds to a visceral end. This is truly a spine-tingling novella,  the action and tension compels you from the start and doesn’t release you until the macabre end.
