Before the accident …

Frank Brazier has the perfect life. A contract to drive for a Formula 1 team. A supportive family. A stunning girlfriend.

On the surface, everything is great, but Frank keeps a secret. On race days, Shadow-man visits. He sits on the nose cone of Frank’s racing car, or floats above the grandstand, waving taunting, distracting, eating away at his concentration. An accident in the making.

After the accident …

Frank starts hearing voices. Strange voices. Impossible voices. He’s losing his grip on reality and Paula, his sister, is dying. Doctors say she is brain dead. They want to pull the plug, but Frank knows she’s still in there, fighting. He can hear her calls.

A day later…

Shadow-man speaks. He says Frank can save Paula, but can Frank pay the price?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This is one humdinger of a story, and right up until the end…and even after you close the book…you won’t be able to make up your mind whether the events are figments, fiction, reality or some combo thereof. You totally HAVE to read this. Really, you do.


There are some real shocks, twists, and surprises in this ingenious, emotional novel. Mr. Donovan’s ability to put the reader into the very center of the story’s events is so deft that I had an almost visceral reaction to those events. Take a deep breath, because THE TRANSITION OF JOHNNY SWIFT is quite a roller coaster ride!


The only problem I had with this book is I’ve got a million things going on in my life right now and it kept dragging me back to it. I had to find out what was going to happen next. Well done.


I was glued to the book for 2 days, trying to figure out what was happening. Just when I thought I knew what the answer, the author kept me guessing. The set up was done so well that there were several possibilities. I wasn’t sure where the story was going until very late in the book. It’s a brilliant psychological thriller, full of intense suspense. By the end I felt totally mentally and emotionally drained.


I savored reading this book and enjoyed how the characters gelled so well together. There were times where I felt like yelling at the people featured in the book and other times when I wanted to jump between the pages and help the main character out of his predicament.
