    Decorated army officer Major Ed Dames tells the shocking true story of his time asoperations and training officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency's top-secret Psychic Intelligence Unit. Together with his PSI Spyteam, Dames used the practice of remote viewing to uncover accurate and verifiable military intelligence by going where no intel operatives on the ground could go - into the very mind of the enemy.

    Story

    It doesn't seem like you get any actual information or proof, much less predictions about the future. It still seems a bit scifi, and surprising that if this is actually going on, that the government allows him to talk about it. I was really looking forward to this one, and disappointed that there wasn't much resolve.

    New York Times best-selling author Laurie R. King garners widespread acclaim for her suspenseful novels rich with historical detail. Set in the vibrant Paris Jazz Age, The Bones of Paris introduces private investigator Harris Stuyvesant, an American agent who’s been given the plum assignment of locating beautiful young model Philippa Crosby. But when Philippa’s trail ends at the Théâtre du Grand-Guignol in Montmartre, Stuyvesant discovers a world where art meets sexual depravity - and where a savage killer lurks in the shadows.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book to a friend because it is nearly a complete waste of time and a credit.


    What could Laurie R. King have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't like when characters are referred to by their first and then their last names constantly throughout the book, it's hard to follow if there are 2 different characters or just one. It may have been different in the print edition, but it was very confusing who was narrating each chapter, as the voice and tone was not dissimilar enough. The book literally didn't even get good until the second half, and at that it was just good.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jefferson Mays?

    Maybe


    Was The Bones of Paris worth the listening time?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    It was not thrilling, it was not enjoyable, you do not become attached to the characters, just overall not a compelling story.
