Synopsis : Thirty years after his grandmother sacrifices her life to save him, Hilton becomes alarmed when his prosecuter wife begins receiving racist hate mail and Hilton starts experiencing troublesome nightmares. A first novel. 40,000 first printing. $25,000 ad/promo. Tour.
Critique: Multiple time-lines and alternate branching destinies are more often associated with science fiction than horror, but in this first novel by an African-American woman, a man who has cheated death finds that his ability to walk through doorways in time brings dark forces into his life. Due employs a lucid, almost stately, prose style to evoke an escalating sense of menace toward a middle-class American family with connections to Ghana. Dreams? Madness? Ghosts? A racist killer? What is happening to these people?
