"When twenty-four-year-old racing driver, Frank Brazier wakes in a hospital bed after a horrific rail crash, he’s blind, wracked in pain, and confused. He’s hallucinating, hearing voices. The voices call to him from the darkness.
In the next room, his sister, Paula, is on life support. The doctors say she’s dead and want to pull the plug, but Frank knows better—one of the voices he hears is from Paula!
Frank has no one to turn to for help, but his girlfriend, Jenny, and the mysterious, ominous Shadow-man. But who is the Shadow-man? What’s his game..."
Comments please, but only if they're nice.
More tomorrow, when I'll start giving you some information on the cast of characters. Starting of course, with the lead, 'Fiery' Frank Brazier...

Some Background Info:
Kerry J Donovan was born in Dublin in the late 1950s, before the time of mobile phones and twenty-four-hour television. He spent most of his life in the UK, and now lives in Brittany with his long-suffering wife of thirty-seven years. He has three children and three grandchildren, all of whom live in England. He is an absentee granddad and praises the advent of video calling.

Kerry earned a first class honours degree in Human Biology, and has a PhD in Sport and Exercise Sciences. He earns a living as a furniture designer/maker and writer. He is a regular contributor to UK-based hobby magazines, and writes the occasional short story for online magazines, Gore!

Family apart, Kerry has three loves: making furniture, sport, and writing (but not necessarily in that order).

For as long as he can remember, he has written for pleasure. Now the children are grown, he is devoting more time to his fiction writing.

Kerry published The DCI Jones Casebook: Raymond Francis Collins, in May 2013, and the second Casebook installment, Ellis Flynn in November 2013. Both are available in e-versions, and you can buy Ellis Flynn in paperback. 

In March 2014, crowd-funded publisher, Britain’s Next Bestseller, invited Kerry to be one of their launch authors. They loved his Sci-fi/Thriller, The Transition of Johnny Swift, which is due for publication in the summer.
