“With his latest, Jeffery plunges the depths of grief as a father tries to connect with his missing daughter, possibly from beyond the grave.”
Paralyzed by grief, Henry’s been burying pieces of his daughter ever since she disappeared when she was fourteen. He places totems in the ground, each a memento mori of his daughter’s life. Desperate to forget and move on, Henry finds he cannot … he is devastated by the possibility he could have played a role in her disappearance.
Then, while at a grief counselling group, Henry sees that all may not be lost. A stranger there offers Henry a dark and disturbing proposition: Have you ever tried to make contact with your daughter, to see if she’s passed?
Why we’re excited about this book:
Over the past few years, Ross Jeffery has made quite the name for himself in the world of horror fiction. The Bram Stoker nominated author of Tome, Juniper, Scorched, Tethered, Only the Stain Remains, and The Devil’s Pocketbook, Jeffery’s work has graced the pages of such anthologies as Far From Home, You Are Not Alone, and Lost Voices, among others. With his latest, Jeffery plunges the depths of grief as a father tries to connect with his missing daughter, possibly from beyond the grave. Michael J. Seidlinger (Anybody Home?) says: “Here we are witness, or rather concerned bystanders, to Henry, a father that has lost his child and in tragedy has lost part of himself. It’s tragic and yet also endearing in its fragility, a sorrowful balancing act that walks the line between solemnity and horror. This novel, like grief itself, will leave readers changed.”, and Tyler Jones (Burn the Plans, Midas) says: “Atmospheric and disturbing, I Died Too finds Ross Jeffery scraping his knuckles through gravesite dirt to explore all the ways grief is just another word for possession. A wicked and twisted journey into a father’s nightmare where each new revelation brings more blood.”
