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.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I will recommend this audiobook to everyone I know. It is one of the very best audiobooks I have ever listened, and I will listen to it again and again.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The author hooked me on the story from the first chapter on. Her story really seemed possible, and the visions that Jeff had were scary and creepy.

Which scene was your favorite?

I think my favorite scene was when Jeff and Richard are going out to the place that the body parts are located, and Richard finally gets an inkling that Jeff might be shooting straight with him.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were several, and I loved all the characters in the book. Mainly, the scenes between Jeff and Richard, slowly getting to know each other after being apart for so many years. They were the type of scenes that anyone who has been estranged from a family member could feel just by listening.

Any additional comments?

Steven Barnett is so very perfect for this series. I have had audiobooks where the reader just does an okay job, which doesn't make the story more real for the reader and listener. Steven is absolutely superb in his portrayals and I am so happy y'all found him for Ms. Barnett's books. I will be getting the rest of these books in the series.
