Mark's world spins out of control when someone says they've seen the ghost of his dead son.

American writer Christopher Coake's You Came Back is read by John Chancer.

Thirty-something Mark Fife believes he has moved on from the accidental death of his young son Brendan and the subsequent break-up of his marriage. He's successful, in love again, and he thinks he's mastered his own memories at last. But when a strange woman tells him she believes her house is haunted by Brendan's ghost, his life is thrown into turmoil.

Mark doesn't believe in ghosts, but his distressed ex-wife does, and he really wants to help her. So much so that he begins to doubt his own beliefs - and endanger the relationships that really matter to him now - with his fiancee and his tough and sceptical father.
