Enjoyable romantic mystery suspense with psychic element
on 27 October 2012
Expert in criminal psychiatry, Dr Charlotte Stone, has an unfortunate ability, which she keeps secret. She can see and hear dead people. Only those who have died a violent death e.g. accident or murder, and only for a short period of time before they go onto wherever dead souls pass onto. However, this ability helps in solving murder crimes as she can actually ask the victim about the perpetrator.
Charlie is asked by handsome FBI agent Tony Bartoli, to help in solving a case where a teenager has been abducted and her family murdered. The MO of the murder is the same as a series of murders 15 years ago which were called the Boardwalk Murders. Either that killer is back again or it's a sick copycat. Bartoli is aware that Charlie was the only survivor and witness to the last murder 15 years ago, when her friend Holly was murdered. Charlie's first reaction is to say no, it's the one case she shouldn't go near, and get as far away as she can from the murder. However, in the end she reluctantly agrees.
Both hindering and helping Charlie on her quest to stop the murders, is handsome, extreme bad-boy ghost, Michael Garland. Who refuses to pass to the other side. Enjoyable book with amusing interaction between Charlie and her big, bad ghost.
