From Publishers Weekly
Florida psychic Mira Morales, her FBI agent fiancé, Wayne Sheppard, and her 14-year-old daughter, Annie, pay a visit to old friends, Ramona and Jerry Stevens, at their woodland cabin outside Asheville, N.C.

Soon after arrival, Mira opens the cabin door to a seemingly pleasant woman who introduces herself as Allie then pulls out a gun. For a stranger, Allie seems to know an awful lot about Mira and Sheppard. When Mira flees to the Stevens' barn, Allie chases her and shoots her in the thigh. Hurting Mira wasn't part of Allie's plan, but it does make it easier to abduct Mira in her Land Rover.

While Sheppard and Annie work on tracking Mira down, the story flashes back 15 years to focus on the dysfunctional, wealthy Curry family. These flashbacks are the book's biggest strength, as they present a tantalizing puzzle involving Dean Curry and his power-mad older sister, Allie, and provide a convincing motive for Allie's violent actions.

What a great read...a cracking tale! The fact that the main character in this book is psychic gives this tale a twist making it an above average thriller (in my opinion anyhow!)

The previous JE covers the basic storyline & it's difficult to say anything else without giving too much away & I really don't want to spoil it for any future readers. So all I'll say is...

The characters are really well written & believeable & as the previous JE says the "flashbacks" work really well. I throughly enjoyed this book & will look for more by this author...there are a few references to an previous event involving Mira & her daughter, & I hope that means there may be more books about this psychic.

This book's really catching and it's hard not to glance at the last pages from the start ;-)

Thanks for sharing again!

Journal Entry 10 by wingIcilawing from Nantes, Pays de la Loire France on Thursday, December 11, 2008
It's now safe in my home with many friends. I look forward to reading it. Thanks everybody.

Journal Entry 11 by wingIcilawing from Nantes, Pays de la Loire France on Thursday, January 22, 2009
I enjoyed the reading but I'm not fond of the psychic bits.

I never imagined that bilbi could think to read the last pages... :)

Thanks for sharing.


PMing Wandering-B

Journal Entry 13 by wandering-B from Tai Po, New Territories Hong Kong on Friday, February 06, 2009
Received today. Thanks Plum-Crazy for another great ring, and Icila for sending it to me as well as the neat post card. As usual, there are a few in front of it, but this may be in my "take the train" bag so it may be finished sooner.

Journal Entry 14 by wandering-B from Tai Po, New Territories Hong Kong on Monday, February 09, 2009
This was a good-reading thriller/mystery. The little bit of psychic twists make it all the more interesting. Thanks again, Plum-crazy for sharing - I will have to look up more by this author! I have jneni's addy and will post this to her tomorrow.

Journal Entry 15 by jneni on Tuesday, February 17, 2009
Forgot about this until I got it from Wandering-B in the maiL! :D Sorry for the confusion Wandering-B! :) Thank you for sending it!!

Journal Entry 16 by jneni on Sunday, February 22, 2009
This is such a good read! :) I managed to finish it today amidst the hectic schedule. It's the first book I read from MacGregor.

First off, I must say that this is definitely a page-turner. MacGregor knows how to grab your attention the moment you start reading. After that, the whole thing just spirals out-of-control so fast! The 'crime' happened in a flash, as it progresses you'll be dying to know what happens next to everyone. The story just grips on to your heart and you will not stop until you finish reading it!

Overall, the plot is great, the characters are lovable (except...!) and very real. I don't know much about psychics but at least in this book, MacGregor did a nice job in it - not overly exaggerating psychic powers which really make them more credible.

Thank you for introducing this book to me! I'll PM the next on the list and drop the book into the mail next week!

Journal Entry 19 by bearyfriend from Singapore, Singapore Singapore on Wednesday, March 18, 2009
Thanks amberC for the address and understanding. I'm in holiday mood right now and will send book to her only in May.

Journal Entry 20 by bearyfriend from Singapore, Singapore Singapore on Tuesday, March 31, 2009
It's April Fool's Day now @12:48am - didn't think I would finish reading on this day. Interesting read about out-of-body experience and telepathy kind of stuff, once started just had to continue to know how the story ends. The story also moves very fast. I'll be able to send it off to Amber-C afterall, no need to wait till May :-D

Thanks Plum-crazy for sharing.

Journal Entry 21 by wingamberCwing from Darwin, Northern Territory Australia on Monday, April 13, 2009
Arrived safely today. It's the only bookring I have at the moment so will be next to be read.

Journal Entry 22 by wingamberCwing from Darwin, Northern Territory Australia on Sunday, April 19, 2009
This is a well written and suspenseful book that really pulled me into the story. There were a couple of things that were skimmed over that I would have liked explained, but overall a very enjoyable read.

Posting to foxygirlACT tomorrow.

Journal Entry 23 by foxygirlACT from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory Australia on Monday, May 04, 2009
Arrived safely today. Will hopefully get through quickly and then post on to next on the list.

cheers

Journal Entry 24 by foxygirlACT from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory Australia on Wednesday, May 13, 2009
I got through this book fairly fast. It was a good page turner. The one thing I didn't like were the references to some previous event where they time travelled. I'm all for the psychic angle, but the time travelling references put me off a bit and I think were completely unrelated to the rest of the book.

Anyway, overall, not a bad read, will post on to Tinina67 (Australia) once I have the address.

Journal Entry 25 by Tinina67 from Seissan, Midi-Pyrénées France on Thursday, May 21, 2009
Arrived today safe and sound. On top of my TBR pile. Thanks for including me. :-)

Journal Entry 26 by Tinina67 from Seissan, Midi-Pyrénées France on Wednesday, May 27, 2009
Interesting and full of suspense, a quick read. But not one of the best I ever read. In some parts I got the impresssion that the author couldn't decide which genre this book should be. Still I enjoyed reading it.
Thanks for sharing. I will send it on asap.

Journal Entry 27 by Tinina67 from Seissan, Midi-Pyrénées France on Saturday, May 30, 2009

Journal Entry 29 by lauraloo29 from Edmonton, Alberta Canada on Tuesday, July 07, 2009
I can't get into this book. My mind has been busy for the last few days. It could be that. I have other rings calling my name, so I'm going to let this one go.

I already have the next address and it will be in the mail this weekend.

Thank you for sharing!

Journal Entry 30 by sunfi from Alexandria, Virginia USA on Wednesday, July 22, 2009
Arrived safe and sound in Ohio, I have a number of other rings/rays ahead of this but I'll get them on my way as soon as I can. I keep my profile updated (weekly) so you can always see how close they are to the top. Thanks top-tappser for including me and thanks skizeye9 for sending these to me.

Journal Entry 31 by sunfi from Alexandria, Virginia USA on Saturday, August 15, 2009
Just finished this one, it was a pretty good thriller. I didn't really care for the ending though, it seemed so abrupt and rushed. I'll try to get this mailed out today.

Thanks for sharing this one!!!

Journal Entry 35 by JennyC1230 from Woodstock, Georgia USA on Friday, September 11, 2009
The book is here! Last year when I signed up for this Bookring, I realized it was the third in a series, so I found the first two books at the library and read them quickly: Hanged Man and Black Water. Really fabuolous series! I like the psychic aspect of this series. I'm going to read this one soon and get it moving again.

Plum-crazy: where does the book go next?

Journal Entry 36 by JennyC1230 from Woodstock, Georgia USA on Saturday, September 19, 2009
Great story! I really loved the way this story came together to terrify you psychologically. Fabulous! Not sure what to do with it now.


Journal Entry 37 by JennyC1230 from Woodstock, Georgia USA on Wednesday, November 04, 2009
Plum-crazy didn't want the book back so it's going on another journey.
