book cover

Stephanie is blessed (and burdened) with the ability to receive psychic impressions and often uses her gift to find dead bodies and dead souls, the slain and the slayers. Stephanie is asked to reveal the corpse and murderer of a young woman who has been brutally raped and fatally stabbed by Frank Talbot, a psychopath who later escapes from jail and seeks revenge on the 'bitch' who sent him there. Soon after, the monster Talbot stalks Stephanie and Marian in their own home.

Qvamp says:

Though this is not horror, it is suspenseful and contains elements of the supernatural. The central characters are a lesbian couple.

The book is a fine read, though the plot was not well thought out and contains many inconsistencies in characters and unlikely events to keep it going.
