The Haunting of Matthew Keys

About The Book

Tortured in the present, haunted by his past.
After losing his wife, Samantha, in a horrible accident, it takes several months for Matt to realize his friends and family are right. He needs to move on with his life. He needs to let the past be the past.

Reluctant but resolute, Matt takes their advice. But, from the moment he steps back into the dating world, bizarre incidences start happening around him. Objects throughout his house are inexplicably damaged. His car's tires are mysteriously slashed. A pitcher of water abruptly flies across a table at him. And people he cares about are being seriously injured.

Adding to these occurrences is the sudden appearance of his wife's perfume throughout his house - the place he used to call their home.

Tormented by these manifestations, and troubled by haunting nightmares, Matt feels he is not alone. He knows, deep down, that his love has not left this world.

Are his feelings mistaken? Is his wife truly trying to harm him? Or is it something else; a malicious entity trying to end his life?

“A compelling reading … a story that gradually creeps up a hill; when it reaches the top, hold on to your hats. Plenty of twists and turns … And you probably won’t suspect the ending – it certainly came as a surprise to me.”

“An endearing, yet torturous love story told in a way that only a gripping psychological thriller can. A great novel that keeps you guessing until the end—then cringing with delight and terror until the fate of Matthew Keys is revealed.”
