A Bishop Files Novel
Within the FBI, there exists a team of psychics whose powers cannot be denied. But these agents are feared—by a cabal of conspirators with only one weapon: to blind the psychics to the evils all around them.
Months ago Sarah Gallagher woke from a coma with psychic abilities she couldn’t control. They changed her life and cost her the man she loved. And now, someone is playing games with Sarah’s mind.
It begins with Sarah’s home being destroyed by fire—an act of arson that draws novelist Tucker Mackenzie into Sarah’s confidence. But he has other reasons for pursuing a woman who can see what others can’t. So does a mysterious enemy intent on eliminating Sarah, and everyone she cares about. Because it’s only a matter of time before her visions lead her and Tucker to a secret many will kill to hide. Only then will they begin to discover the scope of a terrifying conspiracy so deep and complex they can trust almost no one.
I recently reviewed Haven, a Bishop/CSU novel - where some of the characters in this book first showed. These books are an interesting combination of serial crime/killing, almost spy-like espionage, good old displays of psychic powers and a mystery that isn't solved in the first 4 chapters. In other words, it's a keep you on the edge of your seat "crime mystery novel".
This one has Bad Psychics after good Psychics for reasons unknown. Good Psychics dying mysteriously while either doing nothing at all or sensing the darkness coming toward them and fighting it to the death. There's so few psychics in the world, why are they trying to kill each other? Do they really want to kill them.......or use them for some nefarious purpose?
Sarah, basically a brand new Psychic only sees when people die and she has seen herself falling into a grave. Is there a chance she's only seeing a "what if" that could be changed?
Read and find out!
