Publisher's Summary

It should have been the greatest day of David's life. A trip to New York, wife by his side, to visit his new publisher. Finally, after years of lonely struggle it looks as though the gods of fate are going to lift him from schoolteacher to writer.
But on the way back to Penn station, a chance encounter changes all of that. He bumps into a stranger who covertly follows him, and then, just before they board their train home, passes by him close enough to whisper: 'Remember me'. The stranger follows them back to where they live, and it isn't long before David realises that this man wants something from him... something very personal, that he may have no choice but to surrender.
Meanwhile, back in New York, ex-lawyer John Henderson does his girlfriend Kristina a favour and agrees to talk to Catherine Warren, an acquaintance of hers who believes she's being stalked by en ex-lover. But soon John realizes that Catherine's problem is more complex than anyone realized... There are people out there in the shadows, watching, wanting to be with you. They are the followers. And they're about to turn.

Not bad, not great.

It's a book with an interesting idea, but seems to be stretched too much. The prose is great, but the ending slightly flat.

No Idea what's going on

What disappointed you about We Are Here?

This book flitted between characters, tenses etc, too many different characters, viewpoints etc I think I would have struggled even in a traditional format. I lasted for a couple of hours but found myself skipping back chapters too often. Have had this with Stephen King but with him it *usually* pays off.


What could Michael Marshall have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Make it more understandable? get to the point a bit earlier?


Did Jeff Harding do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Jeff put in a good performance as usual, but the story let him down


What character would you cut from We Are Here?

Didn't get far enough through this book to understand the underlying story


Any additional comments?

Probably ok for a holiday but no use to me on a 30min drive to work.
