What she doesn’t exactly what he needs.

Shunned and ridiculed all her life for something she can’t control, Samantha Blair hides her psychic abilities and lives on the fringes of society. Against her will, however, she’s tapped into a killer—or rather, his victims. Each woman’s murder, blow-by-blow, ravages her mind until their death releases her back to her body. Sam knows she must go to the authorities, but will the rugged, no-nonsense detective in charge of tracking down the killer believe her?

Detective Brandt Sutherland only trusts hard evidence, yet Sam’s visions offer clues he needs to catch a killer. The more he learns about her incredible abilities, however, the clearer it becomes that Sam’s visions have put her in the killer’s line of fire. Now Brandt must save her from something he cannot see or understand…and risk losing his heart in the process.

As danger and desire collide, passion raises the stakes in a game Sam and Brandt don’t dare lose

My Rating:

My Review:
Samantha Blair is a psychic who enters into the body of others as they are being killed.  Accustomed to disbelief she keeps to herself and settles in a life where her only friends are injured animals.  When she finds her self experiencing death after death from the same killer, she can't hold her silence any longer.  Detective Brandt has been looking for a vicious killer for sometime but has few leads.  Though he doesn't believe Samantha, he can't help but be drawn to such a wounded person.  Despite the best of logic he finds that he must go to her for her help and maybe to help her too.

This thriller was such a joy to read.  It kept me on the edge of my seat and I just never knew what would happen. Both Samantha and Brandt seemed to be such real and complex characters.  Samantha had been through so much and it showed.  There are different point of views every once in a while and I thought it added to the thrill.  It didn't happen to often to be confusing but added a bit more detail to the story without having to result to boring conversations to explain things.  While I didn't care too much about who the killer was, I was fascinated by Samantha's abilities and found myself so connected to her that I too began to dread the visions.  Overall, this is a thriller that held my attention from beginning to end.  There were no gimics and I didn't have to suspend my disbelief.  Those who enjoy thrillers and mysteries would love this one.

  1. Yeesh, how terrifying that must be to keep experiencing these murders just as the victims are. I love thrillers that incorporate the paranormal, so this seems like something I could get into. Almost reminds me of that psychic eye series I read sometimes. I love when the skeptics finally realize that there just maybe some things in this world that cannot be explained by hard facts and science.

    1. I just live this take on psychics. I think you would love this one Jade.

  2. Sounds scary and creepy but in a good way!
    Glad the book worked out for you and that the mystery was a good one :D
