Greg Bear’s Dead Lines is truly spooky, in the way ghost stories seldom are after we enter our cynical middle years. Peter, like most of Bear’s readers, does not believe in psychics, ghosts or paranormal powers. He may not be happy, but at least he is content with his life and himself.

Greg Bear is one of the greatest science fiction writers of the late twentieth century. Set in the same universe as the author's bestselling Eon and Eternity, this novel tells the story of Olmy, well-known to readers of the earlier books. Investigating an illegal opening in the Milky Way, Olmy discovers a strange new world.

Ring, ring. You're dead. We were all there in that city that draws its paycheck from the manufacture of ghosts, itself made of ghosts: Los Angeles. We were there when one man started handing out free talk. And we are there now, sad little dolls made of dust... Peter Russell lost a daughter to a serial killer. His marriage was the next casualty. Now he gets by as Mr Fixit for a film millionaire with a young wife on a big Hollywood estate infamous for its association with a historical scandal. The millionaire invests in a new kind of phone, the Trans. The problem with the Trans is that not only can you talk to your friends on it, you can also talk to the dead - though that wasn't part of the design spec. The Trans accesses forbidden channels. It has disrupted the exit routines of the recently dead to wherever they should have gone. At first, Russell is only haunted by his dead daughter. Now there are phantoms everywhere. Many are ghosts of the living, people with nothing inside them, called wraiths. A cascade of transgression and murder is unleashed as sales of the Trans take off. Harried near to death himself by his murdered child, Russell must find out who killed her and find a way to put an end to it all, if it kills him.

I enjoy Stephen King and Dean Koontz, perhaps best of all the current sages of horror fiction, mostly because they are not afraid to address the spiritual aspects of fear...Now I must add Greg Bear to that mighty duo. This book is haunting, in so many good ways that to begin to list them will delay you from delving into the book sooner. Do yourself a favor and read this book, then let me know what you think. A+ Bravo
One of Bear's more overlooked works - I highly recommend it if you're up for a well-written ghost story novella set in Los Angeles County.
This is a re-publication of this book that was originally published in 2004. I am glad that it is being re-introduced to readers.

I buy quite a few of Greg Bear's books because the book summaries always sound so good (whoever writes his summaries deserves a raise). And then I end up usually being disappointed - always forgetting that hard science fiction is not my cup of tea. But not this time. This book is exceptionally good. BUT it's not hard sci fi so that's probably the key.

Peter Russell is 58 years old. He used to direct soft porn movies, has tried rather unsuccessfully being a writer and also failed as a husband. He has been doing errands for his millionaire neighbors for quite a few years. But life has dumped a load of bad happenings on him over the last couple of years and when he's offered a job with a start-up tech company, he needs the money and the distraction. But his troubles are far from over.

The book I always hold up as my standard for spooky stories is GHOST STORY by Peter Straub. I loved that book and periodically re-read it. But I liked this book - a lot. It is a creepy "what if" tale that had me turning on lights to chase away the shadows in the corners of the room. I liked protagonist Russell. I liked the pacing of the story. Don't go into it expecting explanations of some of the happenings. Just relax and prepare to be disturbed.

I received this book from Open Road Media through Net Galley in exchange for my unbiased review.
A very well constructed novel within the genre of the macabre via the telling of a ghost story. Peter Russell was at one point a successful director of adult films until one of his two daughters was kidnapped and murdered. That crime turned Peter into a person just able to eke out a small living by running errands for a California millionaire and having little interest in working for a better life. A fortunate contact while waiting to talk to his employer introduces him to what the manufacturer describes as a device that will revolutionize the communications industry. It is called "Trans" and is an exceptionally clear mobile device that can operate anywhere with an incredible low cost of operation.
Peter agrees to begin promoting "Trans" and he starts by using it for his own personal needs. Suddenly he begins to see his murdered daughter and hearing other disembodied voices. The best part of Mr Bear's book is that given the fact of a new communication device somehow reaching out into other dimensions lends logic to the consequences of such an occurrence.
The pace of the book quickens as more and more events occur based on the technology of the "Trans" and make the book more science fiction than a tale of the supernatural designed with fright sequences to tantalize the reader. But of course, Greg Bear's forte is within the world of science fiction and we have a good novel in that genre rather than one more ghost story.

I received a free electronic copy of this novel from Netgalley, Greg Bear, and Open Road Integrated Media in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for sharing your hard work with me. This book was originally published by Ballantine Books in 2004.

I am always tickled when I run across a Greg Bear novel - and am thrilled to see them being re-issued. Thank you, Open Road Integrated Media, for keeping the oldie's but goodies accessible.
This is not a Bear tale that I had run across before. I can tell you that it is massively scary and a good bit funny, if you can laugh at yourself successfully. We only look old on the outside, us boomer babies. Well, except for Michelle, but she had a deal going with the devil, I think. No one should look that good pushing 60. I promise you that you will look at your convenient cell phone in a much different way in about 5 hours read time, and nothing about this tale is dated.
Peter, Peter, Peter. I guess I don't understand the bad and mediocre reviews for this book. I thought it was great. Maybe it worked so well for me because I've not read any Greg Bear books. I'm not big on sci-fi, but I do love the scary stuff. This wasn't horror, but it was a ghost story, of sorts. Truth is, it gave me a big dose of the wollygaggins! Which is an odd way of saying that occasionally my hair was standing straight up, noises were heart attacks just waiting to happen, and shadows seemed to dance around. For me, the whole book was moody, and that's what I like in a ghost story. In this case GHOSTS story. Peter was at times difficult to like, but very easy to love. That ending was kind of incredible. I was smiling and teary eyed too. All in all a darn good story, and one I'd recommend to folk who like an off beat murder/ghosts story. My thanks to the publishers and Netgalley for the free e-book
