Publisher's Summary

Fate in plain sight.

Major Crimes Detective Samantha Reilly prefers to work alone - she's seen as a maverick, and she still struggles privately with the death of her partner. The only person who ever sees her softer side is Michael Turcotte, a teenager she's known since she rescued him 11 years ago from the aftermath of his parents' murder-suicide.

In foster care since his parents' death, Michael is a loner who tries to fly under the bullies' radar, but a violent assault triggers a disturbing ability to view people's dark futures. No one believes his first vision means anything, though - not even Sam Reilly. When reality mimics his prediction, however, Sam isn't the only one to take notice. A strange girl named Tessa Masterson asks Michael about her future, and what he sees sends him back to Sam - is Tessa victim or perpetrator?

    "Good but graphic!"

    This was a very professional sounding audiobook and I mean that in a good way. It went much further into graphic and gross details than I am comfortable with, though. The set up was very interesting with the paranormal element being believable (at least for me) and I am always a fan of mysteries that don't have romance as the glue. It was predictable but perhaps it should have been since it's about a clairvoyant kid.
    I am pretty sure I would listen to another by this author and it would not be quite so jarring since I could be more prepared for the gore. It definitely held my interest and I eagerly went back to it even though I was grossed out and more than a little disturbed by some of the visions.
    The narrator was spot on. Perfect. She really gave the novel a professional sound.
    I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

    "Totally exceeded my expectations!,"
    What made the experience of listening to Seeing Evil the most enjoyable?

    This audiobook was gifted to me in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I don't have a favorite... There was good character development, lots of growth and no confusion of character relationships.


    Which character – as performed by Emma Lysy – was your favorite?

    I believe I just answered this question?


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Can we believe what we see?


    Any additional comments?

    I really liked his book, it kept me interested, great plot development and the ending squeezed my heart:)

    Story
    "Too Graphic w/ no warnings in the book description"
    What would have made Seeing Evil better?

    I would not have listened to this book had I known how graphic it was. I don't want to know what it's like to have a knife stabbed through the eye or how human skin can be filleted. Those are only a couple of instances in the book.


    What does Emma Lysy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The only good thing about this book for me is the narrator.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    No warnings to the extreme violence and graphic details. I don't know that I will listen to this author again.

    "Good book"

    This book is really good. Imagine if you were forced to do terrible things by the one person that you're supposed to be able to trust: your father. Very good storyline, nice character development and a satisfying ending. I will look for more by this author. I received this book at no charge from audiobook boom in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

    This book started with an unimaginable crime, segued into another, gave you a breather and then rinse and repeat. It was dark and gritty but well written and well narrated. It was a good listen but I'm glad it's over.

    Story
    "Thriller, Thrill Ride!"
    What made the experience of listening to Seeing Evil the most enjoyable?

    The Serial Killer, the Psychic, the Abuse and Police Chase all in one! A Roller Coaster Ride in a book. Loved It! I wasn't sure how I felt about it at first but once I really got into it I was hooked! Learning each characters past while dealing with the present was perfectly written.


    What other book might you compare Seeing Evil to and why?

    Not sure which one... I know I've seen a few lifetime movies similar.


    Which character – as performed by Emma Lysy – was your favorite?

    I really enjoyed Tessa's character. A weak abused girl who finds her strength and stands up to her abuser and her own fear.

    "So Good, I Want To Check Out More From The Author"

    All it takes is a touch for pre teen Michael to get a vision of a person’s death. When Michael tells detective Sam Reilly about his visions, of course she doesn’t believe him. When his visions start to come true, Sam starts to pay more attention. When Michael sees the detective’s death things take an even more serious turn. The premise of this book isn’t anything new, but the writing is sharp and the story is handled very well. If you like a good murder mystery with a touch of the supernatural, you will definitely enjoy “Seeing Evil.”

    Finally, this audio book was provided by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an honest review, courtesy of Audio Book Blast.

    Story
    "Reminded me of the TV show The Medium.."
    Would you try another book from Jason Parent and/or Emma Lysy?

    Yes.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?


    I thought the concept of this book's story line was very intriguing.

    Michael has the ability to view people's dark futures, it reminds me of the TV show The Medium with Patricia Arquette.

    Michael has lived in too many foster homes to count and is constantly targeted by bullies.
    Now enters, Detective Samantha Reilly trying to prevent a murder from happening without any "real" proof.

    I don't want to give too much away but all, of the character's personal pains and problems,
    draws the Reader in without much effort.

    The story was a suspenseful thriller that had a good pace and plot.
    The Narrator, Emma Lysy did.. ok.

    "Quite Graphic"

    I was taken off guard at the vividness of the story. This book was very well read and had plenty of suspense. I listened to it all in one sitting.

    I received this audiobook through Audiobook Boom for free for my unbiased review.
