Publisher's Summary

Deadline. Jim True has returned from an out-of-body experience to find he has been brutally murdered and his body mutilated. No one can see him, no one can hear him, no one, except his killer, knows he still exists.
Freed from his body, True embarks on a quest to find his killer and discover why and how he has managed to survive. As he closes in on his murderer, True discovers that even the very people he loved and trusted have betrayed him. He meets his killer, a strange and sinister figure who can also leave his body at will.
An epic and deadly battle ensues between True and a seemingly unstoppable and hideous serial killer - a man now intent on even more murders, including True's wife and child.
James Herbert was one of Britain’s greatest popular novelists and our number-one best-selling writer of chiller fiction. Widely imitated and hugely influential, he wrote 23 novels which have collectively sold over 54 million copies worldwide and been translated into 34 languages.
Born in London in the '40s, James Herbert was art director of an advertising agency before turning to writing fiction in 1975. His first novel, The Rats, was an instant best seller and is now recognised as a classic of popular contemporary fiction. Herbert went on to publish a new top-10 best seller every year until 1988. He wrote six more best-selling novels in the 1990s and three more since: Once, Nobody True and The Secret of Crickley Hall. Herbert died in March 2013 at the age of 69.


Audible Editor Reviews

Nobody True, performed in appropriately frantic and bewildered British tones by Jonathan Keeble, is a suspenseful and supernatural story that is a gripping "whodunit" listen.
Jim True is dead. He was killed and brutally dismembered. By whom, he doesn’t know. But he’s going to find out, for Jim True has come back to life as a ghost - no one can hear or see him except for the one who killed him - and he’s going to solve his own murder. The murderer just may be closer to Jim than he realizes.
This is similar in plot to the smash hit 1990 film, Ghost - but not as funny and much more ominous.


What the Critics Say

"Herbert was by no means literary, but his work had a raw urgency. His best novels, The Rats and The Fog,M.i> had the effect of Mike Tyson in his championship days: no finesse, all crude power. Those books were best sellers because many readers (including me) were too horrified to put them down." (Stephen King)
"Herbert goes out in a blaze of glory" (Daily Mail)
