When he meets the present day Laura they are both instantly aware of each other from their past lives, but he needs to keep her safe.
With the help of a team of think tank detectives they are now on the hunt for the killer and are getting very close.
This is a really good paranormal thriller, with psychic abilities, just to open your mind to the possibilities and it will take you where you need to be and in this it takes us straight to the killer and his finale.
Although slow to start, I found this an enjoyable read, although I couldn’t understand Roman’s dislike of Jamison, this kept interfering in the investigation and he seemed to get a bit to hotheaded a lot.
The storyline follows the lives of a group of people that have lived many lives and each time they are reincarnated they cross paths. It is a classic good versus evil plot but the writing does not engage the reader and the characters are badly developed. The writing overshadowed the storyline completely and I cringed at some of the trite writing.
I really struggled to finish the book and I kept hoping there would be a glimmer good writing but to no avail.

We are then catapulted to Sean's life as a detective that is drawing to an end. He is faced with an internal battle of the purpose of his life and suddenly gets a sense of renewal when he remembers his former life as Emil. His new purpose in his current life? To find his true love Laura.
Rick Sulik paints an unforgettable picture of the gruesome deaths of unsuspecting women and the intuition that we carry about our past life, that can be brought to the surface with the right trigger.
This book held my attention from start to finish and I would definitely read future books from Sulik.

As we switched from past to present and back again, I was willing it all to come right. This is an excellent story.
A very different style of murder mystery. I did enjoy it. If you have doubts at the beginning, please persevere, it really is worth it.
The opening chapters that introduce Emil, Laura, and an un-named enemy are set during World War II. Emil is forced to watch as his beautiful wife is taken from him by a German soldier. When Laura is returned to her husband, she has been raped and brutally beaten before being stabbed to death as Emil is forced to watch. Emil is then marched to his own death. These chapters were riveting.
Move the action to present day Houston where a homicide detective by the name of Sean Jamison realizes that he is the reincarnation of Emil. Jamison is desperately seeking Laura's reincarnated self because he realizes that the German solder of yore is really the serial killer that has been stalking Houston women and killing them. It is Jamison's hope to keep history from repeating itself and while doing so become reunited with his long-lost love.
The chapters set in present day Houston were slow moving for this reader. Mostly the remainder of the story is an insider's look at how crimes are solved. Personally, I would have liked more action scenes.
I have some major gripes with this novel. First, the author relied heavily on the spell-check function of his computer. There are numerous places where sound-alike words were spelled correctly but misused. Very annoying. Second, once the two cosmic lovers are reunited there are two or three chapters where the author goes on his soap-box and, speaking through this characters, gives us his opinions of government and politics. While we are meant to believe that these opinions are those of Sean Jamison it is abundantly clear that the opinions are those of the author. I expected the romantic reunion of the star-crossed lovers to be tender and touching; it was, in fact, anything but. It was more like two high-schoolers in the back seat of a car.
I liked the premise of the story and felt there was a lot that could have been polished. In fact, I think this would make a great story for the big screen. However, the mechanics are in need of good editing.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review purposes.
