Description from
Psychic Cassie Neill helps the L.A. police catch killers - until she makes a terrible mistake and an innocent child dies. Cassie flees to a small North Carolina town, hoping that a quiet life will silence the voices that invade her unwilling mind. But Cassie's abilities know few boundaries. And she's become certain - as no one else can be - that a murderer is stalking Ryan's Bluff.

It's his fury that Cassie senses first, then his foul thoughts and perverse excitement. Yet she doesn't know who he is or where he will strike. The sheriff won't even listen to her - until the first body is found exactly where and how she predicted. Now a suspect herself, she races desperately to unmask the killer in the only way she knows: by entering his twisted mind. Her every step is loaded with fear and uncertainty... because if he senses her within him, he'll trap her there, so deep she'll never find her way out.

I absolutely loved this book! I normally don't read very many adult books, but this has opened my eyes to a genre that is definitely done better for an adult audience (gore-y mysteries that include paranormal cops). I have already read quite a few from this series and I love that I don't have to read the books in order, or all of them for that matter, for the series to make sense. In each book we are introduced to new characters so each can be read as a standalone. I love the paranormals in this book and found the concept so interesting. This book had me hooked from the very beginning. The only thing I didn't like about this book (and I have found it is a recurring theme in the series) is that the ending is pretty vague. I believe it is the author allowing the reader to come up with their own interpretation and theories, so I get it now, but when I first read this one it was kind of a let down. I will definitely be continuing with this series and will be keeping my eyes open for more adult books with this kind of subject.
