Overview

"IN A LIFE FULL OF LIES, HE FINALLY SETTLED FOR THE TRUTH."

No one in Mattingly ever believed Bobby Barnes would live to see old age. Drink would either rot Bobby from the inside out or dull his senses just enough to send his truck off the mountain on one of his nightly rides. Although Bobby believes such an end possible--and even likely--it doesn't stop him from taking his twin sons Matthew and Mark into the mountains one Saturday night. A sharp curve, blinding headlights, metal on metal, his sons' screams. Bobby's final thought as he sinks into blackness is a curious one--There will be stars.

Yet it is not death that greets him beyond the veil. Instead, he returns to the day he has just lived and finds he is not alone in this strange new world. Six others are trapped with him.

Bobby soon discovers that this supposed place of peace is actually a place of secrets and hidden dangers. Along with three others, he seeks to escape, even as the world around him begins to crumble. The escape will lead some to greater life, others to endless death . . . and Bobby Barnes to understand the deepest nature of love.

Coffey returns to Mattingly, Va. (the setting of The Curse of Crow Hollow), in a novel that will challenge readers to rethink their ideas of heaven and hell. Bobby Barnes, the town drunk, is in a car crash. To his surprise, the morning after the crash he wakes up alive—he thinks. Bobby soon discovers he's in a strange in-between place with six other townsfolk—Dorothea, Junior, Tommy, Laura Beth, Juliet, and George—who all have stories as strange and tragic as his. Dorothea is in charge of the "family" in heaven, their name for the day that keeps repeating itself. But all isn't perfect for Bobby or the others, who must confront their sins and vices if they want to move on. Coffey has created a tale that turns back on itself, twists into knots, and weaves reality and fantasy into a jumble that occasionally satisfies and often confuses. Coffey's fans will stick with him; new readers may not. Agent: Rachelle Gardner, Books & Such. (May)
