LOST ECHOES is a bit of a supernatural tale from Champion Joe. Great Lansdale type writing, and I really liked the premise and characters.

Since a mysterious childhood illness, Harry Wilkes has experienced horrific visions. Gruesome scenes emerge to replay themselves before his eyes. Triggered by simple sounds, these visions occur anywhere a tragic event has happened. Now in college, Harry feels haunted and turns to alcohol to dull his visionary senses. One night, he sees a fellow drunk easily best three muggers. In this man, Harry finds not only a friend that will help him kick the booze, but also a sensei who will teach him to master his unusual gift. Soon Harry’s childhood crush, Kayla, comes and asks for help solving her father’s murder. Unsure of how it will affect him, Harry finds the strength to confront the dark secrets of the past, only to unveil the horrors of the present.

Attempting a crime thriller with a supernatural twist is risky literary business, but prolific author Joe Lansdale has the chops to pull it off - barely. This is the story of Harry Wilkes, who thanks to a severe childhood ear infection is given the unwanted gift of hindsight triggered by sounds. Put Harry in the vicinity of a violent death and, if triggered by the right sound, an instant replay of whatever gruesome past event took place. Needless to say, neither a pleasant nor desirable talent, which sentences poor Harry to a life of carefully plotted places and activities in an attempt to prevent the next horror show. But after living a life trying to avoid his "sixth sense", Harry must eventually make the choice of confronting his nightmares in order to help Kayla, former crush of his east-Texas childhood and current rookie cop on the local police force - and still a "hottie". While somewhat reminiscent of M. Night Shyamalan's "Sixth Sense", or more recently, or Tom Piccarilli's bizarre "Headstone City", Lansdale's twist on a second sight is fresh and unique.

"Echoes" starts fast and furious, getting the reader riveted early, but about midway through slows and starts gets a bit muddy. The dialogue is uneven - snappy and darkly humorous at times, dull and uninspired at others. But for me, much of the slowdown can be attributed to Tad Peters, a middle-aged drunk who happens to be a Bruce Lee-class martial artist, independently wealthy, wholly unbelievable, and totally annoying. But we're to believe that the sodden Tad has the mojo to turn Harry's life around, get them both off the sauce, save fair Kayla, and clear her father's good name. But thankfully, just before Tad manages to sink this notable effort, Lansdale recovers and salvages the story with a climax worthy of the crackerjack beginning. All things considered, an off-the-beaten-track-kind of a book that while not without flaws is a worthy read.

Joe Lansdale's new book is a blast to read. Just settle back in and get ready to have a dose of realistic heroes, weird powers, martial arts madness, and some of the most fun dialogue you'll run across this year.

College student Harry Wilkes has the unnerving ability to "hear" ghosts. Not talk to them or whisper to them. But to see how they met their violent deaths in the last few minutes of their lives. With this power, he's often privvy to some hellish sights and suffering, and to secrets that other people would prefer to stay buried--with the dead.

After having the mumps as a kid and getting a bad ear infection, Harry starts hearing ghosts. Violently murdered ghosts most of all. As he grows up, after leaving his home, he isolates himself in a small house that he lines with egg cartons to insulate it from outside noises that might set off one of those close encounters with the dead that he's not overly fond of.

Slowly but surely, Harry turns into an alcoholic and ends up meeting Tad Peters, a martial arts expert with his own guilt to carry. They end up becoming friends and it's this friendship that really makes the book work. Lansdale is at his best describing the lives of ordinary people thrown into extraordinary circumstances. He never fails to deliver outstanding dialogue and characters that are just like people the reader knows.

The mystery comes a little late in this one, but when it does it's a doozy. It also forever alters poor Harry's life. Although beginning at a casual pace, readers aren't going to be able to put the book down during the last third of the tale.

The book is an enjoyable and fast read from cover to cover. The characters are straight from the heart of Texas and one step over into the Twilight Zone.

Here is what I had forgotten about reading a
Lansdale book---how easy it is. The writing
just flows along, flows along. This book is not
as good as "The Downs", but, it is better than
some of the others that I have read (I think this
is my 6th). The author sure does pack a lot into
a story! There are good cops / lots of bad cops,
ghosts, a Mr. Myagi-kinda-dude, murders, guns,
lots of drinking. Of special note, don't miss the ex-
change between Tad and Joey in the restaurant,
it is so, so good.
