Review by Library Journal Review
Will Sullivan has his sights set on becoming the next governor of Massachusetts. With everything falling into place on his campaign, Will is regarded as a shoo-in; that is, until he and his wife, Joanna, discover that their daughter, Sydney, has a malignant tumor. As her illness progresses, Joanna becomes increasingly distant and removed from reality. With the future of both his campaign and his marriage hanging in the balance, Will fights for his daughter's life. But things are not as they seem at Briarwood Medical Center, host to several supernatural-like happenings, and Will's sense of hope and reality is further challenged when he encounters a mysterious man who knows too much about Briarwood's patients. Bram Stoker Award winner Sokoloff's (The Harrowing) emphasis on character paints a vivid image of the struggle between reality and the unknown; even the hospital comes to life. This heartbreakingly eerie page-turner is recommended for fans of such authors as Heather Graham, Dean Koontz, and John Connolly and is suitable for popular fiction collections in public libraries.-Carolann Curry, Mercer Univ.
