Mark Fife had it all: a loving girlfriend he is about to propose to, a great job and good friends. Mark, however, is not without skeletons in his closet. It has taken him and his ex-wife Chloe years to deal with the devastation that was left behind by the accidental death of their son Brendan. Having been brought back from the brink of desolation before, it seems to Mark that nothing can destroy him now. Until, that is, he is told Brendan has come back and is looking for his Dad. Eerie and spine-chilling, you can't help but keep following Mark as he gets pulled back into a life that nearly killed him. If you are looking for a great read with a hint of The Lovely Bones, then You Came Back is definitely the book for you!

Praised by Nick Hornby and singled out by Granta magazine as one of the best young writers in America, Christopher Coake has written a heartstopping first novel about love and loss, grieving and belief. Mark Fife thinks he has got over the death of his son Brendan in an accident and the break-up of his marriage. He's in love again, he's successful and he believes he has grieved properly. But when a crazy woman claims Brendan's ghost is back in their old house, and his ex-wife wants so much to believe her, Mark finds himself desperately trying to cling on to his sanity. And desperately trying to discover where his future lies. You Came Back is a modern ghost story, a Lovely Bones for our time.
