Synopsis:Realtor Carla Simon has her first showing in nearly eighteen months. Recovering from a nervous breakdown, she arrives at the bank-owned foreclosure well ahead of her prospect. When her buyer pins her against the wall, it turns out to be the last house she’ll ever show.
Working on rebuilding his life, Lance Underphal attempts to bury his psychic curse alongside his troubled past. But when cryptic nightmares begin to plague him, he comes to know his struggles with the supernatural are far from over.
Lacking evidence, Homicide Detective Frank Salmon drags the reluctant psychic into the investigation. Underphal clues him in—this psycho is just getting started. Salmon assembles his crew and digs in.
Jack Jacobs, a PI and a shipmate of Salmon’s, fields a call from his girlfriend’s frantic daughter. She recruits him to locate her missing husband. Finding the husband’s Accord parked outside a long-vacant house, Jack senses he’s out of his league and calls Salmon.
Salmon’s manhunt ratchets up as Underphal’s predictions come to pass. Salmon, Jacobs and Underphal soon join forces, driven to stop the killings—a monumental task. And it’s not long before they disagree, each tracking their own suspect. All are led astray. A wild ride full of twists and turns, from a Goth-fest gone wrong to a shiny new morgue, they grapple with demons real and imagined.
As Lance’s dead wife Sonja whispers words of warning, he comes face to face with the murderer fresh from a kill. It’s only then he discovers it’s the murderer who’s stalking him. Lance wrestles with grim choices: Give up the chase and abandon his friends, or immerse himself in the killer’s dark past and risk annihilation. Lance’s only shot at redemption—face the horror and reveal its source.

This was a great book that had action, mystery, murder, and show girls! I was hooked after the first chapter, and I needed to know if they died, who the shooter (s?) were and how Lance was going to find out these answers. I also wondered how it would affect him, because he was on the phone when it happened. I kept wondering how the shooter(s) got in the building as well. Just when I thought that I was starting to figure things out the author threw in a murdered wife, and physic abilities. I enjoyed reading the visions and then the legwork of Lance (the detective). It was engaging to read both sides. There is a lot of adult content in this book, and it i down to make the characters more lifelike. Every body swears, and this book is about murder, so of course there is violence. There was also sex in this book, and even though it might not be necessary to the plot, it is needed to know more about the characters. This book is also based on some facts, and I would love to read more about the verity in this story. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
Flight of The Tarantula Hawk was just as good and had as much mystery. This is definitely a series that I will read whenever I get the chance. I am giving both books a 4/5. I was given copies to review, however all opinions are my own.
