Can you see it?
Are you standing there, with Dan and Eli looking at the end of their struggles?
I’d like to say that you and I are going to be there, flanking our friends and preparing for the worst. But that’s not true. Oh, we’ll be there, you and I, but they can’t prepare for the worst.
How can they when I can’t?
I don’t know what’s coming. I don’t know who’s going to be standing at the end of this journey. Dan’s been hurt, perhaps fatally.
This book is difficult for me, not only because it ends our time with Dan and Eli, but because I’ve poured a lot of myself into this entire series. It’s been said that you should write what you know, and so that’s what I’ve done in this series. No, not the ghosts and the murders, but what Dan’s going through. My editors have pushed me to go deeper than before, to dig into a level of self that is frightening, and so that’s what I’ve done.
Have you felt Dan’s heart break? Did you suffer with Detective Evan Coffin? Could you feel Dan’s fear as a child, hiding from his mother and her heavy hands?
This is the end of our time with Dan, of looking in on him and Eli. So, I’ll ask it again, can you see the end?
Come on, it’s time for us to go. Dan and Eli are waiting for us.
