Publisher's summary

New York Detective Sidney Langston is rushed to the hospital with excruciating chest pains the same night a woman who bears a remarkable resemblance to her is murdered in San Diego. Tests reveal Sidney is perfectly healthy, yet the crippling pain persists until the dead woman reaches out from beyond the grave for Sidney’s help to vindicate her wrongfully imprisoned husband and to find her murderer.

Desperate to remain pain-free, Sidney embarks on a mission to exonerate an innocent man. With a ruthless killer at large, she soon discovers the crime is more than a simple whodunit when dangerous scenarios unfold. The dead woman’s spirit relentlessly pushes Detective Langston to solve the crime and correct an injustice - or forever be tormented by an invisible bullet wound.

4.75 stars for book, 5 stars for audio performance

*4.75 stars for book, 5 for audio performance*

This is the first time I have read/listened to anything by this author. While I’m not usually a fan of third person writing, this story held my attention.

The book itself is a solid 4.75 stars, while the audiobook is a solid five stars for the Narrator, Jule Nelson-Duac.

I haven’t listened to any of Jule’s other audiobooks she performed, but I could definitely listen to more of her work. She did an amazing job at making me experience the story. The way she can change the sound and pitch of her voice is incredible.

The book itself was interesting. I love the concept of psychics and mediums helping to gain justice (and sometimes a little revenge) for the deceased’s loved ones and selves.

It was interesting to see how the ghost of the murder victim was able to communicate and help clear the suspect while bringing the real players down. There were times I felt that there were too many suspects and I got a little confused, but I quickly caught up.

The ending was definitely interesting and I would like to see Aden and his children get a second chance at love and a family. I would’ve liked to see Sidney call Bernice after everything to give her an update. I could see her, Sam, Bernice and her psychic friend team up.

I received an advanced readers copy. These thoughts and opinions are my own.

Absorbing Supernatural Story

I enjoyed this story a lot. The story was about a detective who suffered terrible chest pains at the same time that a woman who lived in another state was murdered. The detective becomes involved in the woman's murder investigation. Once I started the audiobook, I had to listen until the end as I became embroiled into the story. Jule Nelson-Duac's narration was good, and her performance added to the story's entertainment. I enjoyed this story a lot. I was given a free copy of the audiobook, and I have voluntarily posted this review.

Supernaturally Driven Police Investigation

Sidney Langston is a New York Detective who is experiencing some supernatural incidents that drive her to solve a murder mystery for her own piece of mind and to remain pain free from a “sympathy” bullet wound. Set to discover the true murderer, Sidney hopes to help the dead rest and free an innocent man.

Compelled is a great listen. Compelled is written in such a way that you get all of the details and still stay engaged. The author does a great job making Sydney a down to earth character that still is the hero. There are twists and turns throughout the story and when you think you have it figured out, we get even more details. The ending of Compelled left me satisfied with the story.

Jule Nelson-Duac provided the narration and did so wonderfully. She gave each character a different voice and was easy to listen to. Her cadence was measured and added to the storytelling.

There were no issues with the production or quality of the audio.

Murder Mystery with a ghost behind it all

Sidney is now a police officer on Long Island in NY. She used to be a CIA operative so she has some skills that a regular police officer might not have. A psychic contacts her about a ghost who has been unrelenting in trying to reach Sidney through the psychic. Sidney rejects the contacts until she is provided with some facts that cause her to relent.

Sidney is home on sick leave with unrelenting heart problems that the medical experts can't explain. When she agrees to look into the case, she feels much better. She flies out to San Diego to investigate a case of a man accused of killing his wife. The police are certain that they found their man so they didn't do a complete investigation.

Sidney brings on some help in San Diego and uncovers a complex plot. She develops multiple leads and a few potential suspects. All the while, she feels the presence of the ghost urging her on and making her have strange reactions about some people in the story.

I enjoyed the book and I liked the complexity of the investigation.

I listened to the audio version, which was excellent.

The author provided me with a copy of the audio book. This is my honest review.

This book will keep you guessing until the end

Compelled is a classic who did it book, with a paranormal twist. It’s an exciting book that will have you at the edge of you seat and keep you guessing right to the last moment. The characters and plot line are great and the narrator knows how to spin the tale, so it gets even better. I can warmly recommend it for fans of mysteries and crime novels.

Kept Me Guessing

I found 'Compelled' by Inge-Lise Goss to be very interesting. I found it started out a little slow but ended up moving right along. The subject matter was very interesting and it kept me intrigued as to how the story would finally end. And, the ending was even more interesting. The narrator did a wonderful job. All in all I would recommend this book.
