    A great concept and some terrific writing. Atmosphere a plenty...Hysteria, hallucinations, the power of suggestion, government conspiracies and cover ups and battling inner demons what more could a reader ask for! I also know that this story will stay with me next time I get on the tube too. I hope everyone gets the chance to read it.
