Karma Dead Ahead is a terrific read and D.H. Montgomery is an author that I'll be watching out for in the future.

This book is a wonderful mix of humour and suspense and right from the word go I found myself laughing out loud.

Sagacity and Chance are two graduate students in a university paranormal research lab who find themselves on a Caribbean island searching for Amanda Prosner who has failed to return from her holiday there. Amanda had a strong feeling that something bad was going to happen to her while she was away so she contacted Sagacity and Chance before she left and asked them to look for her if and when she didn't return.

The two detectives turn to the Gang of Four, a group of four psychics from a local spiritualist church to help them try and work out what's happened to her and the identity of the mystery man that managed to lure her to the islands.

What follows is a series of events that involve a meteorite, a witch who develops phone apps, corrupt officials, a rather large python and a duo who are totally oblivious to the fact that they have become worldwide celebrities.

I loved every page of this book. The story flows well and the characters are so realistic. I especially loved the interactions between the members of the Gang of Four who all have their own individual psychic traits which makes them mix about as well as oil and water at times. The relationship between Sagacity and Chance is also an amusing one and you could almost compare them to Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson as Sagacity is the natural leader and thinker while Chance is more of the side-kick who is just looking for a quiet life. D.H.

I love a good mystery book and the cover of this book looked very suspenseful, making me want to read this one. The description was intriguing as well. Karma sets the story in motion and determines its ending. The woman who disappears is an every-woman character who thinks she has met Prince Charming, but hasn’t. What single woman couldn’t fall into this trap? The two private detectives, Sagacity Jeunesse and Chance Mankowski, spend the first half of the novel trying to find out who the impostor Prince Charming is and how he has gotten away with his charade (it’s not the obvious answer). While the detectives aren’t psychics themselves, they use its powers (the PSI in the series title) to help them along. In the second half, they need to track down the culprit before he harms the missing woman. The author is good at building suspense and this kept me reading. The ending does have a certain amount of violence (not in the usual way though).

I don’t want to give the impression that this book is some dark Gothic tale. There is actually a lot of humor in it and a parade of eccentric characters — the Professor, the four psychics and Sagacity’s mother (thank goodness she’s not my mother). Chance himself frequently offers comic relief to the more serious Sagacity. There are also a number of side stories taking place around the main one and these make the book more entertaining.

Since this is only the first volume in the Private PSI Detective Mystery Series, I can't wait to read the next one to see what adventures Sagacity and Chance experience next.

First of all, I love this book and every spare moment I have I grab my kindle and sink deep into the world of this detective. I actually wanted to save it for my holiday, but I guess it will be long devoured by then...

For you who aren't sure yet (you should just get it!) but here's more details about the book, I case I wasn't convincing enough. This book can be enjoyed on many levels. First of all it is a detective story, which has much in common with a number of other contemporary books which update the modern who-done-it with some paranormal elements. I love this part, because it's all very exciting, though these should be taken as a plot device and not literally. Secondly, Karma Dead Ahead can be read as a subtle satire on the dysfunction of a number of present-day institutions. Not in a moralizing way, but by using parody and amusing situations. The author actually combines the two components effortlessly.

As other reviewers already mentioned, there are two detectives in this series, Sagacity Jeunesse and Chance Mankowski, instead of one. I had to get used to the names, but the author introduces them (their names) in such a way, comical, logical, that afterwards you totally accept it. In a number of ways, they are opposites and I guess they represent alternative backgrounds in American culture. Sagacity is from the rural cowboy West and she has that resourcefulness and can do spirit of the pioneers. Chance is from New York and is more the urban intellectual type, dominated by thought and preferring to avoid action. Their relationship is a push-pull one, without being stereotype or boring, it's done well. The girl is the one who moves things forward.

Maybe I'm over analyzing, because it's just a very entertaining book, but well.
