Excellent story and performance

Excellent story enhanced by an amazing performance. I really appreciated how different this book is from so many other psychological thrillers. Loved the supernatural twist. Very believable as written.

Great but much more intense

Listened to this in one day I couldn't put it down. I am listening to a lighter book next time as this was so intense. Will listen to book 5 on c e I can get this one to settle.

If you like unusual endings

Kay Hooper is a little talky in her beginnings but the unusual story line and the twist at the end always keeps me going. All in all an excellent mystery read.

Loved it!

It makes house go a lot easier, I love reading but if I sit down to read that is all I would get done and once you pick up one of Kay Hoopers books they are hard to put down after starting.

Very exciting. Lots of twist and turns.

Where does Touching Evil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is towards the top of the list of books I would read

Who was your favorite character and why?

Maggie was my favorite. She had that mysterious, creepy and gentle sprit that pulled me in.

Which scene was your favorite?

When the pregnant women was taken and killed. Very graphic scene.

Any additional comments?

This book was pretty good. I liked the unpredictability that some of the book offered but the end was predicable as most books are. The book intrigued me enough to want to read more books in this series. I would recommend this book for those that like creepy, unexplained, supernatural mixed with police detective. I really liked this book

I didn't hate this book

Too many minor characters, too many psychics, a preposterous plot and a little gratuitous romance make this book totally forgettable. Yet, I didn't hate it and was never tempted to quit listening. I wanted to learn who Annie was. I wanted to learn if Hollis was going to be able to regain her sight. I wanted to learn if John would be able to avenge the death of his sister. About the only thing I didn't learn was if Luke was able to get elected to the governor's mansion. Maybe in the next installment, which I will not be listening to. Truly not a bad story if you're into psychics and such.
