A ghost who brings visions of fire. A runaway girl on the streets. A psychic who might be lying about someone's death. It must be time for Jack and Lauren to get serious.
Ghosts, Lauren can handle. People, on the other hand, can be scary as hell. So when she finds herself visited by a young girl who's clearly no longer of this world, Lauren is more intrigued than anything else. It's only when this ongoing visitation coincides with receiving a psychic distress call from a girl who desperately wants to stay missing that Lauren becomes both curious and frightened.
Soon, Lauren and Jack find themselves pitted against a ticking clock as they try to rescue a girl the police are searching for, at least one man is hunting, and who another psychic claims to have already seen dead.

I first read this book and got a little confused because I didn't read which character that chapter was about. The narrator does such a good job at changing her voice that I knew immediately that it was a different character and wouldn't have been confused at all. And the narrator 's range of characters runs from a very young girl, male and female adults, and even an elderly couple whose voices are very convincing.
The story is exciting and the dialogue between Jack and Lauren is very entertaining. David Pandolfe creates an adventure that makes me want to tag along with Lauren and Jack, especially in that old VW van. All of the books in this series are worthwhile reads and now on Audible, I can multitask while enjoying the story.
Absolutely. David's books are the type which get better with time. I have read the first book, Streetlights Like Fireworks, twice, and enjoyed it even more the second time.
Very good pacing, understated drama, great characters.
Each character has a recognizable voice, and it fits the character so very well. Excellent job!
No, just greatly enjoyed the whole story.
David Pandolfe is a wonderful writer. His work can be beautiful and almost lyrical, in unexpected ways. Yet the stories are not overdone, or silly, or overdramatic. I'd like to meet these people. I'd also like to meet Me. Pandolfe some time, t o express my admiration for his work.
I had read the book, but hearing the characters come to life in the voice of the narrator was a great way to revisit a story I already liked a,lot.
Really, I think David's books are so unique that the only thing I can compare to is the previous two books in this series. They just keep getting better!
Lauren was and is my favorite though I really like Jack too. But I relate to Lauren even though it's been a long time since I was her age.
Extreme pleasure! I just keep rooting for Lauren and Jack, so every time I encounter them is a pleasure.
While this book could easily be listened to as a stand-alone, you'd be doing yourself a pleasurable favor to listen to books 1 and 2 as well. If you want to listen to this one first, you can just thing of the first two as prequels!
Can't pick just one, I really like both Jack and Lauren, and their back and forth banter.
First time listening to Kerrie Seymour really enjoyed her performance. I think she really captured the mood and characters.
This is the third book of a series involving two young adults with psychic abilities. If this is the first book you read in the series the author does a great job of putting in enough background so the reader doesn't get lost, yet doesn't overdo the back story.
Narration review: Kerrie Seymour has a very nice voice. I was able to tell which character was speaking through her intonation. The narrative portion of the story was very evenly read. I actually found her voice very soothing.
