It took a while for Abby Coopers FBI agent boyfriend, Dutch Rivers, to accept her psychic gifts as the real deal. But these days he knows better than to question Abby's visions. So when his favorite cousin Chase is kidnapped in Vegas, they both catch the next flight to Sin City.
Abby's inner eye insists that Chase is still alive, but nothing else about the case adds up, especially Dutch's reluctance to involve his own Bureau. On top of everything, Dutch is battling a mysterious illness, and Abby keeps having disturbing dreams that predict his death. Dutch wants Abby to promise that if the investigation goes south, shell head home to safety. But when the chips are down, Abby wont fold without a fight.

i really like this storyline. its fast easy at times i thought i had it figured out but then a twist would pop up. i like the charactors added. it was good for abbey to expand and i love dutch.
i like the give and take with abbey and dutch. ready to start the next one.
Dutch and Abby are faring well with their new living arrangements, Candace is working out very well as Abby's business partner. Life couldn't get any better for Abby. And then...Dutch receives a call that his cousin Chase has been kidnapped! Dutch grew up with Chase, they're like brothers, and he goes into high alert after hearing the news. He and Abby hop on a plane to Vegas, where Chase lives, to figure out what happened and find Chase.
With potential danger being linked to Chase's kidnapping, and Dutch's "secret" investigation, the two lay low with the police on Dutch's true identity, hoping that will get them more information. I had no idea from this point on in the book that the investigation was going to get so out of hand with the craziness, it was amazingly awesome!
While they are trying to find out what happened to Chase and his boss Delgado, Dutch goes missing! The FBI are after Abby, and there is a blonde woman found in Dutch's crashed car on the highway, that has amnesia! What is a psychic in Vegas with no friends to do? Call her crazy sister Cat, and friend/partner Candace of course! Once these two ladies show up, all bets are off! With Abby out of sorts and scared about Dutch's welfare, and the FBI hunting her down for evil, bad reasons, Candace and Cat put their best feet forward helping to find Dutch.
This book has to be up there with the best in the series so far! The antics the three ladies get into are so funny, scary, and genius! You also find out more about Candace, because apparently she is from Vegas and runs into her past that she has to explain, hehe...Abby, Candace, and Cat make new friends as well that will be a perfect addition to their lifestyles.
You know you're hooked when you're on the verge of committing "Hari Kari" if ANYONE interrupts you ONE MORE TIME while listening to the book! I am never disappointed when Abby is on the case!
Elizabeth Michaels does a wonderful job of narrating Abby's story. Elizabeth does not "act" out the book, she narrates it, and a great job she does! So if your looking for someone that does voices for each character, just forget about it! However, if you are looking for just a wonderful nice voice to tell you a story as herself, Elizabeth fits the bill. Elizabeth's voice does seem to fit Abby's personality very well and she is able to carry herself consistently throughout the story. I give Elizabeth Michaels 4 Stars for her work as Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye!
Only negative is way too much use of the word "boogie". Was this written in the 70's - anyway still a good story.
I really enjoyed this book. I had never heard of this series and I am so excited to have stumbled on it. The story kept my attention and I could not tell what was coming next. The narration was wonderful and I am excited to read another in this series.
I've listened to several books in this series and this one is my least favorite so far, probably because Dutch didn't have much of a role maybe. I did enjoy the interaction between Abby, Candace and the over-the-top Cat but the rest of the story seemed to be lacking something, maybe too many close calls. It seemed no matter what they did the bad guy seemed to find them quickly so off they go again. At least the bad guy was a surprise.
The narrator could have been a lot better.
This book was entertaining, action-packed and kept you turning pages. Abby and her friends get invovled in some silly hijinks in Vegas. This book has a fast pace that will keep you turning the pages to see what's going to happen next.
Each book I listen to in this series, makes me love the series more. I love that Candace has become more involved in the series, as I really like her character a lot. It was a smart move on the author's part to bring her to the foreground, as it changed the normal pattern and opened up many more possibilities.
This book is packed with tense moments, and twists that I didn't expect.
As I mentioned in my review of the first book, the narrator could be better. However, she is not annoying or impossible to listen to...but the lack of voices and execution takes away from the dialog. The author didn't do us any favors when she decided to repeat the same descriptive phrases or sayings over and over...but I can ignore them. Just gives me a few more opportunities to practice my eye rolls each day.
That being said, I do like the series. Each book presents new challenges, new mysteries, and new characters. I recommend it if you are looking for an easy-to-read mystery series.
I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha
Mystery, mystery. mystery right up to the end. Can't beat a book like that!
Yepper....refer to above

Cat always cracks me up with her way over the top ways. I know I am not obeying the rules but I also loved Nora because her strength and grit are a surprise and Foxy because she seemed like some kind of character :-)
"He said", "She said", "He said" over and over until I thought I was going to scream. The writing was completely second-rate. I rarely write bad reviews, but this one demanded it.
I didn't even finish the book. It was so bad that I tossed it after about 2-1/2 hours. I often like supernatural oriented stories, if they have some charm and don't take themselves too seriously. "First Grave on the Left" (and series), "Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighbors" (and series), etc are great.
This one was just plain dull. Paired with the bad writing (see above) and bad reading (see below), it was not worth completing -- a rarity for me...
The narrator speaks in a single voice for all characters. She varies her voice just enough to avoid a monotone, but often pauses in inappropriate places, and gives no sense of character to anyone.
