When DI Harry Grimshaw is told he must work with a psychic investigator, he is hostile and sceptical, in spite of the fact that tattooed, foul-mouthed biker Dora Balniel is not a stereotypical clairvoyant. In spite of their animosity, they work together to sift through Celtic legend and magpie folklore to probe the mind of an obsessive serial killer known as The Daaney One. It becomes clear that Dora has been deliberately lured to the Isle of Man by the killer and that he has the ability to probe her mind. With the murderer controlling what Dora sees, Harry struggles to maintain control over the situation and keep Dora safe. As the sizzling attraction between them builds, it will require all of Harry’s ingenuity as well as her own psychic ability to ensure Dora is not the next victim.

    Its always a nice change sometimes to read a non American romantic suspense. This book takes place on the The Isle of Man, which is located between the islands of Great Britain and Ireland. The heroine is from Ireland and the hero was born on Mann. Along with the location being a change the characters were different too. Dora Balniel is a clairvoyant. Its not something she ever wanted to be but as it runs in the family she didn’t have a choice. Now she is a tattooed, motorcycle riding woman with Its always a nice change sometimes to read a non American romantic suspense. This book takes place on the The Isle of Man, which is located between the islands of Great Britain and Ireland. The heroine is from Ireland and the hero was born on Mann. Along with the location being a change the characters were different too. Dora Balniel is a clairvoyant. Its not something she ever wanted to be but as it runs in the family she didn’t have a choice. Now she is a tattooed, motorcycle riding woman with an attitude. She was asked to come to Mann to try and help to find the killer of 5 young girls. At first it just looks like she is there at the request of the uncle of the first girl murdered but its not long before we see she was manipulated psychically by none other than the killer. The killer is somehow able to project things into her head instead of her being inside the victims head at the time of their death. Deputy Inspector Harry Grimshaw is assigned to work with Dora while she is on the island. These two pretty much butt heads right off the bat but its not long before they become friends and work closely at trying to find the killer. One of the biggest changes I noticed with this being written by an author from England and the men not being the typical Alpha US males I am used to. There are 3 men which I will call vying for Dora sexually – one is part of the island's parliament whose a bit of a stuffy but his characters gives us lots of history about the island, the other is an artist that from the way the author describes him oozes with sex appeal that Dora has a hard time refusing and of course the other is Harry who is described as disheveled and as we find out his history has quite the past. As Dora and Harry hunt for the killer we are given lots of information about the Island and also about its Celtic roots. Even though there is a conclusion at the end of this book it was in the blurb for the next book that I see this is an ongoing series with the same characters. I was a bit surprised at what the next one is about but I enjoyed this book enough I am looking forward to it.

    I really enjoyed this book and would of given it 5 stars had it not ended on a small cliff hanger, there was a couple of questions that needed answering that were supposed to carry on into the next book of the series. This book was written 4 years ago, where is our next book in the series and our answers? It was still worth reading though as the story in this book did have an ending and it was a great read.

    SNS Rating: 5.0 ~~~~~~~~~~Amanda's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~ I really enjoyed this work and the characters in it. It kept me on my toes with the suspense and the banter between Harry and Isadora made me want to laugh out loud. It was very well written and very easy to read. I was able to play it out in my head like a movie. I really enjoyed it. I was given an ARC for my honest review.

Readers’ Comments ‘Enjoyable psychological thriller. This will prove popular with readers of crime/thriller/mystery.’ Male reader, aged 60 ‘This was a good read. The attraction between the two central characters is well-written; there’s a bit of sex here and there to keep the reader fired-up!’ Female reader, aged 41 ‘Kempt me guessing till the very end, always a good sign with a thriller. I actually thought the central premise was brilliant.’ Female reader, aged 37 ‘The Celtic legend/folklore element was very interesting to me. A little less sizzle and a bit more thriller and this would be top-notch. It’s difficult to take the thriller elements seriously when the sex is so graphic. I loved the psychic investigator.’ Male reader, aged 43 ‘It got me all hot under the collar!!!’ Female reader, aged 36 To Sum It Up: ‘A very enjoyable erotic thriller populated with well-developed characters. Hot stuff! A FINALIST and highly recommended.’ The Wishing Shelf Book Awards

    The concept is not exciting or new. It reminds me of Murder she wrote with a paranormal touch to it. I skipped a lot of pages hoping to finf out that I missed out on anything. No new events came up.

    It was a very good book and it suprised me. And I really liked the heroine - I rarely do. The plot was decent, even if I knew whodunnit as soon as one whodunnit made an appearance. So what. Waiting for the second installment.
