Two weeks after his 18th birthday, everything changes for Evan Nash. When he injures his head after being run down on his bicycle, he begins having strange, harrowing visions whenever he tries to sleep. He turns to psychiatrist Shannon Mayer for help. Mayer has troubles of her own: her daughter has been kidnapped, and she's desperate for answers. Though she's at first skeptical of Evan's accounts, it quickly becomes clear that his mysterious ailment may be the key to finding her child. Soon Evan's visions prove essential to the case but at a terrible cost. Evan and Shannon face an agonizing decision: Should he risk himself to save the girl?

This story has great potential. I like the theme of this story "remote viewing" but it is too short to be adequately developed. This was a recent audible daily deal which I took advantage of and glad that I did. It was enjoyable but characters and storyline is underdeveloped.
As described in the publisher's review, this story is about a boy who can "see" remotely people, places and things when he sleeps. This story has great potential to be developed into an entertaining read.
Overall, it's not worth a credit but ok for a 2.95 purchase.
a very good story. I didn't want to put it down until I finished. the writer doesn't get bogged down, the story flows.
"Poor Research leads to Sub-Optimal Dialogue"
How does such a poorly written book get so many positive reviews? It is a short book and I managed to get through all of it with difficulty. This is a poorly researched self-published book with dialogue and actions which were so uninformed that I cringed as I listened. An example occurs when after many hours of ‘free’ therapy, the psychiatrist, Dr. Shannon Mayer thinks, “Clearly, there was something demented going on in his head.” Her language and actions are not those of a professional person throughout the book. Other reviewers have commented on the many problems with character and plot development in this novel and I will not reiterate those comments, but I do agree with them. I will avoid this author in the future. Amy McFadden's narration was excellent but she could not save a bad book
"Not bad for a first"
I can't help myself, I have to give it 4 stars...Grumley bears watching, he's going to write great stuff. In fact if you've read Breakthrough and the 2nd in that series Leap, you know he already has, and I believe he's only going to get better....
No, this book isn't as good as those and it's short, but I still enjoyed it. He has a knack for making you like his characters.
If you haven't tried anything by him yet, get to it. It's going to be an amazing journey! Get your original copies and keep them, you might be glad you did in a few years...
"Impressive short (4.5 hour) suspense novel"
I'm currently listening to Leap by Michael C Grumley. I did not write a review of Through the Fog when I read it last year. In this novel psychiatrist Shannon Mayor asks for help finding her kidnapped daughter from her patient Evan Nash who is seeing her to try to cope with disturbing visions he is having after being run down on his bicycle. It is an excellent suspense story.
"just kinda blah..."
Never really connected with any of the characters. Overall the plot was pretty uneventful and far fetched. Not my cup of tea !
"Don't waste your time"
This story was super fake! I kept listening until the end, hoping it would get better and it did not!
Lots of unexplained things and loose ends. I'm just glad it was short so I didn't waste too much time.
this episodic story left me wanting loose ends tied up. Not sure if it was intended as semi fantasy or sci fi . too much was left unexplained. Characters battles with weak back stories. Not a book to recommend to others. Narration was good within the limits imposed by the author.
"Doesn't fulfill early promise"
No. Started well...the underlying premise of the story was pretty intriguing. But as the story developed, it played out like every other thriller out there right now. After some early promise, nothing new...
"Good performance of a lackluster book"
The only character I had any remote affection for was Evan. Everyone else was boring at best, and the ~mysteries~ the author kept shoehorning into every chapter gap just pissed me off. Not every chapter needs some flaccid cliffhanger just to keep readers from running away! And the answers to the questions presented in those cliffhangers were by and large disappointing, and usually predictable to boot. Plus, so much of the dialogue was overwritten and unconvincing. Every character talked the same (writing-wise, not the performance), and I rarely bought anything they were trying to sell. Only decent as a primer on shit to avoid while writing.
