Jeff Resnick hardly knew his well-heeled half-brother. But after suffering a fractured skull in a vicious mugging, he reluctantly accepts the fact that he has a long and brutal recovery to face - and his closest of kin can provide him with the time and place to do it. Now, Jeff is haunted by unexplained visions of a heinous crime - a banker, stalked, killed, and eviscerated like a 10-point buck. When Matt Sumner's murder is discovered, a still-recovering Jeff realizes this was what he had seen. Jeff must not only convince himself of his new-found psychic ability, but also his skeptical brother, Richard Alpert.

Jeff Resnick faces a new dilemma: someone is stalking his sister-in-law, Brenda, who fears that violence from pro-life supporters will escalate near the women’s clinic where she works. Or could the vandalism, threatening phone calls, and letters against her have come from her abusive ex-husband? Meanwhile, Jeff grapples with meeting his estranged father and the sister he never knew existed. Could Patty Resnick be the key to Brenda’s stalker?

Jeff Resnick thought his long lost father was dead until the day he finds out that he was wrong. He discovers that Chester Resnick is still alive but dying. He also finds out that he has more family than he realized.

As if that wasn't enough to keep him busy he has to find out who is stalking his sister-in-law, Brenda.

Steven Barnett once again turns a wonderful performance as narrator.

I love this series and Jeff is definitely one of my favorite characters.

A near death experience is only the beginning of Jeff Resnick's troubles. Family comes to town, but one of them, a nephew who reminds Jeff of the thugs who mugged him, has unsettled him. He's on edge. The fact that his brother has taken possession of an expensive boat through an IRS auction takes his mind off the bad vibes he's getting from other relatives. But that yacht holds a deadly secret, one destined to turn his world upside down. Will Jeff figure out the puzzle before his vision of near death becomes a reality?

Jeff's sister-in-law is about to have her baby, his brother buys a boat and Jeff helps his newspaper friend investigate a story. Sounds normal enough but nothing is ever normal around Jeff Resnick.

Steven Barnett once again lends his considerable talents to the narration of this very enjoyable book.

If Katie Bonner's late husband hadn't invested all their savings in the craft fair Artisans Alley - which Katie is now responsible for keeping in the black - the Webster mansion could have been hers to remodel. For years she dreamed of renovating the old place on Victoria Square into a bed and breakfast. Now that dream belongs to another young couple.

Jeff Resnick will do just about anything to avoid the miserable headaches that haunt him after being viciously mugged. Dr. Krista Marsh promises a cure--but only if he helps unlock the emotions of a disturbed young woman. Jeff knows he's being manipulated, but can't seem to walk away from the power Krista holds over him. Things spiral out of control as Jeff's brother, Richard, gets caught up with hospital politics. Blackmail and murder are only two of threats the brothers face in this provocative thriller.
