Customer Review

on 11 January 2012
Jeff is mugged and the bash on the head releases some latent psychic ability leading him to try and solve a murder he has seen in his visions.
This is pretty standard stuff for this genre but the characters are strong and likeable, giving the reader a genuine interest in what happens to them. The attraction of the story in many ways is the relationship between Jeff and his brother, Richard, and how this impacts upon Richard's own relationship with his partner. This seems to be an intentional thing by the author, since the reader knows who the killer is pretty early on in the piece.
The psychic stuff is generally believable during the story apart from the slightly ridiculous scene where Jeff has a chat and a hot chocolate with an old woman who had actually died years ago. This whole scene was unnecessary and actually undid some of the good work the author had done earlier in getting my buy-in to the whole psychic premise central to the story.
I will probably get more in this series when they're in the bargain bucket just to see how the characters develop, but wouldn't pay full price for them.
