Synopsis: Andrew Goodwin hears voices. They wake him in the dead of night, lingering behind the walls, growing in strength until they take over.
Making him captive in his own home.
These voices are real. Andrew doesn't know who they are or what they want. Every time he approaches the door, they force him back. Whenever he wakes up, they put him to sleep, making him live on stolen moments in the darkness.
Desperate, he records his own movements, and discovers his entire life is a lie – Andrew is somehow leaving the flat each day as if things were perfectly normal.
So why doesn’t he remember? Who is in control?
And why are there bruises and bloodstains all over his body?
Affinities is a fast-paced psychological thriller about a man whose very life is stolen from him. Sometimes, you can't even trust yourself.
Review: Andrew Goodwin is hearing voices, losing time, and doesn’t know what is going on. He’s having run-ins with people he doesn’t know and he cannot account for how they know him. AFFINITIES starts off with an air of anticipation, slowly building up speed until the reader is faced with a shocking reality. Andrew finds out he is not alone in his head, not alone in his body, and now the other resident wants to take over permanently. While we find out when this transfer happens, we’re not really given details on how it occurred. AFFINITIES is a paranormal / psychological drama with a special twist at the end. AFFINITIES is an interesting tale, with a unique premise which I can see being explored in further depth in future novels.
