This mystery not only has unique story and characters, it has a web of entanglements between Claudia’s handwriting analysis work and the homicide case being investigated by her detective boyfriend. How they solve their conflicting roles only enhances the drama of this intriguing mystery. I recommend it highly.

The unique feature of Sheila Lowe’s mysteries is the use of handwriting analysis to solve the crimes. The handwriting also provides unique insights into the story’s colorful personalities. The ink slinging tattoo artist culture provides an engrossing setting and all the characters are so real they feel like they’re in the room with you. I was captivated from beginning to end. I highly recommend this audiobook

In the dead of winter, handwriting expert Claudia Rose journeys to Maine to retrieve a manuscript about convicted female serial killer, Roxanne Becker. The manuscript, written by Professor Madeleine Maynard, who was, herself, brutally murdered, exposes a shocking secret: explosive research about a group of mentally unstable grad students selected for a special project and dubbed “Maynard’s Maniacs”. Was Madeleine conducting research that was at best, unprofessional - and at worst, downright harmful and potentially dangerous? Could that unorthodox research have turned deadly?

I enjoyed this book immensely from two points of view. Firstly, as a handwriting analyst, I enjoyed how cleverly and profoundly handwriting analysis was interwoven into the story and used to enhance the depth of each character. And secondly, I was captivated by the whodunit mystery with twists and turns that unfolded masterfully till the very end. The reader also had an enjoyable, clear voice that suited the main character. I highly recommend listening to this book.

What She Saw is a audiobook of psychological suspense that follows a young woman through the terrifying labyrinth of amnesia, where no one is who or what they appear to be.

Claudia Rose, Zebediah Gold, and Joel Jovanic of the Forensic Handwriting Mystery series play an important role in unraveling the web of mystery.

What did you love best about What She Saw?

This story is both a psychological and physical thriller with constant twists and turns. Every time I thought I knew what to expect I was wrong by a mile. Interesting concept, engaging characters, constant intrigue, and having it include handwriting analysis, which is a great interest of mine, was a big bonus.
