9780230760806: The Forbidden

[Read by Simon Vance]

''The Alienist'' meets ''The Exorcist'' in Tallis' novel of psychological suspense, as an ambitious young doctor explores the dangerous border between science and the supernatural. 1873. When the ambitious Doctor Paul Clément takes a job on the island of Saint Sébastien, he has dreams of finding cures for tropical diseases. After witnessing the ritualistic murder of a young boy who was allegedly already dead, he is warned never to speak of what he has seen. Back in fin de siècle Paris, Paul's attention turns to studying the nervous system and resuscitation through electricity. Paul is told of patients who apparently died and were brought back to life, claiming to have witnessed what they believed to be Heaven while they lay between life and death. Using forbidden knowledge he swore never to use, he attempts to experience what everyone else has seen, but something goes horribly wrong. When Paul returns to the land of the living, is it possible that he could bring something else back with him, an unspeakable evil so powerful it can never be banished?

About the Author:

Frank Tallis is a writer and practicing clinical psychologist. He has held lecturing posts in clinical psychology and neuroscience at the Institute of Psychiatry and King's College London and is one of Britain's leading experts on obsessional states. In 1999 he received a Writers' Award from the Arts Council of Great Britain, and in 2000 he won the New London Writers Award.

Review:

“Thrilling. What we have here is a proper scare-your-socks-off horror tale. Tallis weaves real historical figures into the narrative and conjures up fin-de-siècle France beautifully, but his main intention, excellently achieved, is to jolt even the hardiest of hearts.” (The Financial Times)

“A captivating historical series.” (New York Times Book Review)

“F.R. Tallis plunges us into late-1800s Paris, all cathedral gargoyles, rustling silk and gaslight. We follow Dr. Paul Clément, a student of the budding field of neurology, whose particular interest is in resuscitation of the dead using electrical charges. Tallis populates his story with real historical figures of the time, and thanks to impressive research detailed in the afterword, creates a beautifully authentic style that never falters into anachronism. You might say it’s a 19th-century “Flatliners,” segueing into “The Exorcist."” (The Charlotte Observer)

“Fans of Caleb Carr will feel right at home.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“If you’re looking for the best in popular fiction, Tallis is well worth seeking out.” (The Washington Post)
