23 November, 1963. It is the day after John F. Kennedy's assassination - and the faces of the dead are everywhere. PC Reg Cranfield sees his late father in the mists along Totter's Lane. Reporter Mae Callon sees her grandmother in a coffee stain on her desk. FBI Special Agent Warren Skeet finds his long-dead partner staring back at him from raindrops on a window pane. Then the faces begin to talk, and scream... and push through into our world.

Bears little relation to the blurb. I confess to liking science in my science fiction, howeverI expect onternal consistency and plausibility within a defined framework. This story has too many ot holes to mention. The idea of an alien that feeds on negative emotion is trite, an army of clowns to battle it is an insult to anyone’s intelligence. Pathetic in the extreme. Dr. Steve Benson.
