While investigating the brutal murders committed by a mysterious serial killer known only as "Raithe," bookish LAPD Detective Sarah Milton is unprepared to have her entire world turned upside down. Innate powers to see the dead, lying dormant since her mother's murder, have reawakened in her after a near-fatal shooting. Along for the ride is Sarah's irrepressible thirteen-year-old childhood "imaginary friend," Anna Nigma, a most atypical poltergeist. Amid fears for her sanity, Sarah must come to grips with the realization that her reality is now a mix of the natural and supernatural, where powerful, ancient mystic symbols can grant amazing powers over life and death, and paranormal influence extends even into her current murder investigation. Forced to hide her abilities from everyone, Sarah, aided by her spectral friend, has no choice but to bring Raithe to justice on her own, before the sinister forces behind his murder spree claim yet another victim.
My first glance at this series was a few chapters in preview from Amazon.
I eagerly took advantage of the free advance copy of this book I received via Booksprout.
I'm pleased to have had the chance to read some amazing stories.
A tough LA cop who had suffered the loss of her mother at a young age was a character I enjoyed
discovering is a good sleuth, and an intuitive profiler, even before a serious injury forces her to face some
of her other abilities and vulnerabilities.
I don't think it would always be fun to be a psychic at murder scenes.
Sometimes funny, sometimes disturbing insights into twisted offenders.
Often filled with colorful support characters like psychic fortune teller Mama Chen.
If your're a mystery junkie like me, and you also enjoy the ocassional thriller and paranormal read,
this could be your next edge of your seat read.
