Book Review: Alex by Adam J Nicolai


An empty house. A bereaved father. Tormented by his loss, Ian Colmes has driven away everyone he loves. Now, consumed by guilt and longing, he begins to see his dead child again.


Ian Colmes is grieving for his son Alex, he is full of guilt and cannot move on which leads to him pushing everyone away. His job, marriage and sanity are in jeopardy as he begins to see Alex in his home and his car.

Terrifying visions of his son make him realise Alex has something to say. The author is very good at evoking emotions in his readers in this supernatural thriller and you won’t want to miss a single detail in this book.

Every emotion Ian experiences is palpable and the suspense is exemplary as we learn what happened to Alex. The climatic end is hair raising! I make no apologies about giving very little away, this is not an English Lit essay and I don’t want to spoil the revelations in this chilling book This is a wonderful first novel by a very gifted story teller.
