Publisher's Summary

Cold case detective and newlywed, Ronan O’Mara, is sitting on top of the world. When he returns to work after his honeymoon, he finds more waiting for him than a stack of dusty cold-case files. Hidden in the mail on Ronan’s desk is a letter from Tank Hutchins, aka The Riverside Ripper. Convicted of murdering a woman three years ago, Tank claims he is innocent and asks Ronan and Tennyson for their help in proving who really committed the crime: his twin brother, Tim. 

Psychic Tennyson Grimm is reluctant to meet with the convicted murderer who’s placed his faith in Ten’s gift. When Tennyson realizes Tank is innocent of the crime for which he’s serving 25 to life, he knows that he and Ronan have to do whatever it takes to set things right. 

Together with Tank’s private investigator, the mysterious Jude Byrne, Ronan and Tennyson retrace the steps of the original investigation hoping to find the one piece of evidence that will get Tank’s conviction overturned and bring the real killer to light. 

When new evidence leads them to believe there’s a larger conspiracy at play, will Tennyson and Ronan be able to find the killer before he returns to complete his diabolical plan?

Marriage, murder, and Thanksgiving

Ronan and Tennyson are married now, and they feel like their "future daughter" is closer than ever. A convicted killer contacts Ronan, asking for the couple's help in proving his innocence. Could his identical twin be the real killer, and if so, how will our heroes prove that? This man brings someone into Ten and Ronan's life who is going to be very important to them. Until I listened to this, I had forgotten what a jerk Jude Byrne was when we first met him. It made me laugh to listen to him being all surly and suspicious.
Greeley is amazing in this book. He is so patient and kind with Ten's mother, and he gently encourages her to open her mind and her heart. I love the relationship between those two.
The narration is great here, and while all the characters sound distinct and terrific, I especially love the voices of Ronan and Kevin.
This series is one that I love and already go back to, to find enjoyment over and over. Excellent storytelling with characters I adore, and a top-notch performance. Nothing could be better.

Loved this book!

So, confession time. I haven't read or listened to any of the previous books in the Cold Case Psychic series, but I have read (and loved) the Haunted Souls series, which is a spin-off from this one. Frankly, I think I was more confused when I started Ghost of Himself than when I was reading Dead Ringer. Pandora Pine does a great job of giving enough background information about the characters she introduces without making it seem superfluous or too much. And to be perfectly honest, one of the reasons I picked up this book was because it's where Ms. Pine introduces Jude Byrne and the other reason was the case, with me having twin daughters, I find the subject fascinating (just don't tell them that, LOL).

I had met Ronan and Tennyson as secondary characters in HS and I really liked them, and maybe because of that, it was easy to connect with them here as well. Their chemistry and the love they share are palpable and they're really hot together. I loved that they were both flawed and that even if they're thoroughly invested in their marriage, that doesn't mean that they won't fight or get angry when the other one does something not too bright.

I think the secondary characters, including the awesome Bertha, play a big part in how good the books are. The sense of family and friendship, of them all rallying together to help each other, are a huge bonus in reading these books.

The case was really interesting. Twins and the fact that even when they're identical can be so diametrically different from each other is intriguing for me.

The story was well thought out and entertaining and I'll definitely go back (and forward) at some point to learn more about Ronan and Tennyson and their friends.

The narration was really good. There were a few places in which Michael Pauley seemed to pick up steam and go really fast and almost run out of breath as he spoke, but for the most part, the narration was quite solid and enjoyable and I have no trouble recommending this audiobook, especially if you're a fan of the series already.

Wonderful series

I am still in love with this dynamic duo. I adore this series, the cast of characters, the cases, and of course the future little miss! We now have a new character, Jude, who is definitely intriguing and I look forward to seeing more of him. I really enjoy the banter between the characters, the family aspect and most of all how Ronan has changed into the most romantic man ever. He’s just a goner for Ten and I wouldn’t have it any other way. The case was interesting as usual,and I really love how this world is adding new characters with each and every book.
So what can I say about Michael Pauley? Hmmm, only that no one else can ever narrate this series! How he chose to portray Ronan and Ten is just absolutely pure gold. I could wait a year and come back to listen and still know who each character is, he has such great distinction between them all. And I adore Ten’s little snorts. This isn’t narration, this is voice acting in all it’s glory. All in all, I absolutely recommend this book and series. It needs to be read or listened to in order. It’s definitely worth the investment. This is a series that I will listen to over and over again.

New Friends, Holidays & Another Amazing Story

After returning from their honeymoon, Ronan & Ten receive a letter from Tank Hutchins. Convicted of murder, Tank has reached out, convinced that they can help him show that he is innocent of the crime and asks to help him prove his brother is real murder.
Will they be able to find the one piece of evidence needed to help overturn Tank's conviction?
This book is a wonderful continuation of the series! This author has created a world where family is not only your relatives but those who you choose. In addition, because the characters are reoccurring in several books of the series, you are able to see them grow closer, gain some new friends (this time a new PI named Jude), and see them throughout a variety of situations which makes you feel like you know them!
The performance/narration is wonderfully done! Its so fun to hear your favorite stories come to life and this is no different! Wonderful read all around!

Brilliant book with amazing narration!!

This series is fabulous and Michael Pauley does an incredible job of narrating it - he’s a must listen for me!

Ronan and Tenn are now happily married with their chosen family surrounding and supporting them. Both the MC’s and secondary characters are loveable and well written and as always with Pandora Pine the wit, humour and amazing dialogue is a constant between the characters. On top of all that there’s a fantastic storyline.

This story isn’t a cold case which is a huge change in this series, but instead is a case of mistaken imprisonment with a man in prison suspecting it was in fact his twin that committed the crimes. It’s a thrilling and action packed ride as always and is a fantastic listen.

I received an arc of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving an honest and unbiased review

Very nice addition to the series

I really like Michael Pauley’s narration of the Cold Case Files. He brings each person to life. Imbuing each character with a recognizable voice.

Ten and Ronan haven’t even settled into their newly married life when Ronan receives a letter from a convicted killer, saying he’s innocent and wanting Ten’s help to prove it. Ten is reluctant but once Ronan tells him he thinks the man is innocent Ten is on board.

The psychic story wasn’t as strong as the others in the series. The case was in the background but never felt as compelling. What came through the strongest for me was the total sense of family encompassing the whole book. The introduction of Jude was wonderful. Him and Ronan’s interactions were priceless. I can see them becoming the best frenemies ever.

Very nice addition to the series.

If Michael Pauley narrates it, I'll listen to it

This series keeps getting better. I was very skeptical in the beginning because I've never really seen/read the trope done very well, especially when trying to make the psychic relatable.

I take it back!!

Add in Michael Pauley's flawless voice acting, and I'm hooked.

Tennyson and Ronan are amazing, and the books leave me very curious about a certain new character that's been introduced.

Fantastic Narration & Wonderful Story

Though this wasn’t as emotional as some of the past books I’ve read or listened to in this series, I was still kept on the edge of my seat. This who-done it mystery of identical brothers had me engulfed in anticipation wanting to know the outcome. And what an outcome. I totally didn’t see this one coming and I loved that it surprised me so much.

I enjoyed that the whole gang was once again in the story, but that it revolved more around Tennyson and Ronan really was nice. The two work so well together even if they don’t always see eye to eye.

I’m still waiting for Greely to get his own story. Love that kid!

Michael Pauley does another wonderful job with portraying each character individually. I couldn’t imagine him not narrating these stories. He truly has an amazingly talented voice.

Deadly doppelgänger?

I love the Cold Case Psychic seres by Pandora Pine and Michael Pauley does an amazing job of bringing the characters and their world to life. This sixth book finds Cold Case Detective Ronan O'Mara returning to work after an absence of several months owing to various circumstances and his new husband Tennyson Grimm-O'Mara getting into his readings at West Side Magick still reeling from his mother's attendance at their Day of the Dead wedding.
This one has quite a twist with twins, one of whom is currently in prison for murder based on DNA alone...lots of family secrets...it's quite a reveal when the truth comes out as to who really done it!
I love how Ten and Ronan talk to each other about things instead of letting them fester, and I love how their circle of friends and family work together and welcome Jude into their midst. The Thanksgiving dinner was my favourite part of this story and there's an interesting turkey competition with 4 differently cooked birds...highly recommended for all PP/CCP fans and all lovers of paranormal thrillers with lots on man on man loving thrown in for good measure.

Another brilliant book in the series

Each book in this series gets better. Ingenious twist in this story that I never saw coming. Can’t wait for the next one
Michael Pauley’s narration is spot on. His characterisation along with the excellent writing helps me conjure up images of all of the characters making it a joy to listen to.
