Echoes from the Dead Summary

Echoes from the Dead: Oland Quartet series 1 by Johan Theorin

'An impressive debut novel' The Times 'Fantastic' Guardian Can you ever come to terms with a missing child? Julia Davidsson has not. Her five-year-old son disappeared twenty years previously on the Swedish island of Oland. No trace of him has ever been found. Until his shoe arrives in the post. It has been sent to Julia's father, a retired sea-captain still living on the island. Soon he and Julia are piecing together fragments of the past: fragments that point inexorably to a local man called Nils Kant, known to delight in the pain of others. But Nils Kant died during the 1960s. So who is the stranger seen wandering across the fields as darkness falls? It soon becomes clear that someone wants to stop Julia's search for the truth. And that he's much, much closer than she thinks . . .

Echoes from the Dead Reviews

"Evocative and haunting, with a subtle sense of menace that grows with each page" -- Simon Beckett, author of The Chemistry of Death
"An impressive debut novel...Theorin's excellence in conveying bleak atmosphere is matched by his insight into sensitive family relationships" * THE TIMES *
"Fantastic... Theorin's prose is wonderfully descriptive" * GUARDIAN *
"There is warmth in Theorin's narrative and the gradual piecing together of the story leads to an unexpected denouement" * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
"Sheer storytelling grip such as this is relatively rare. A particular strength is the evocation of locale and atmosphere here; it is masterfully done" * THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE *
