Publisher's Summary

Demoted to the cold case squad after shooting a suspect in the line of duty, Detective Ronan O'Mara knows that his career with the Boston Police Department is hanging by a thread. His first assignment is the case of Michael Frye, a five-year-old boy who has been missing for seven years. With no new leads or witnesses to interview, Ronan has to start from scratch to solve this mystery. When he sees a handsome local psychic on television, Ronan figures he's got nothing to lose in enlisting the man's help to find Michael. 

Psychic Tennyson Grimm is riding high after helping South Shore cops find a missing child. He's even being courted by the Reality Show Network about a program showcasing his abilities. He has no idea that his midday appointment with a customer, who instead turns out to be a police detective, is going to change the course of his life and his career. 

With the blessing of the BPD, which badly needs an image makeover, Ronan is allowed to bring Tennyson in to assist with the Frye case. Being thrown together in front of cameras is never easy, but add in an emotional missing-person investigation, a tight-lipped spirit, and a cop who's a skeptic, and it definitely puts a strain on both men and their working relationship. 

When the child's body is found, the work to identify his killer begins. As Ronan and Tennyson get closer to solving the case, the initial attraction they feel for one another explodes into a passion neither man can contain. 

Will working together to bring Michael's killer to justice seal their fledgling bond, or will unexpected revelations in the case tear them apart forever?

The audiobook really brings this story to life

I'm a big fan of all of Pandora Pine's work, and I was so excited to hear her first audiobook. It did not disappoint! The Cold Case Detective series brings together some great characters and suspenseful, engaging stories, but being able to actually hear these guys is awesome. Michael Pauley did a fantastic job with a large cast of characters, and the way he portrayed Tennyson and Ronan was spot on!
If you are already a fan of this series, you owe it to yourself to buy this book and listen. It truly brings Tennyson and Ronan to life. If you're new to this author, this is a fabulous place to enter the world that she has created with these characters.

A story that draws you in and great narration equals a 5 star rating on all fronts! Don't miss out on this one!

good not great

So I've not read this author, just listened to this one book.

And overall it was enjoyable. And even though I found through out there were spots I found annoying. Characters saying and not saying stuff. It really was only the last 7-8 chapters when I started getting really aggravated. I could see why, but as a reader it just left me p-offed. Not more engaged.
Makes me wonder, before I buy another is that the normal M.O. cuz if I'll skip.

You've got lots of cliché roles, Irish Police in Boston. Good old Catholic men who never lost the boyhood faith. Dirty cops and super good ones.
But it was all made to work, and even the film crew that you think was or should be more in the spot light, isn't.

Awful, Awful Awful

This book was awful! The writing made no sense. I love psychics in stories so this should have worked for me but the writing made no sense. First it was mentioned that Ronan was an alcoholic and after a fatal shooting while he was obviously intoxicated though it was in self defense he had to do rehab or be fired. In Florida!!! Ronan was a police detective in Boston, MA but he was sent to Florida! I don't think so, that makes no sense and definitely not in a police budget. Ronan began drinking because of his depression from his marriage breaking up but except for the story saying he was an alcoholic and having alcohol in his system when the shooting happen nothing in the story or Ronan's behavior indicated he had a drinking problem, no cravings, nothing. I really don't think he did, he just needed to be aware of where he was headed.
Next, Tenn's friends, nice yes but extremely annoying because what grown men talk like that? These guys acted like college freshman, I'm not gay so I cant' say they don't talk like gay men but I did read a review from a gay man and he said gay men did not talk like that and he was a tad offended by no research on real gay men. Anyhoo, we were told Josh was a jackass, Tenn got horrible energy from him everyone wondered what Ronan ever saw in him but we never got any flashback to see how they interacted with one another in their relationship prior to marriage or during. We never even got the reason why Josh left Ronan since he said he was the love of his life and I actually believe it considering what he did thinking what he did would make him have a life he could dedicate to Ronan. We were told what he said to Ronan on that subject but not the real reason. Next, there was no mystery at all to the story, we know right away who the killer is and if someone read this and didn't know then you're obviously and oblivious reader. The book only gave one person to suspect and yep it was him but not only was there no mystery there was no real detecting it was Tenn saw this and it was or Tenn heard that and it was. Next, by the end of the book Josh said it had been two months since Tenn had been around but honestly the book read like it had been maybe two weeks max. There was nothing given to let us know time was going by and definitely not two months. I couldn't figure out why Ronan called Tenn his boyfriend because it seemed they had just met then we saw no relationship development. I get inta love so that's what I thought it was until I read two months had passed. Now for my last but biggest not like in this book. Ronan!!! Ronan was an asshole of infinite proportions, he yelled, grabbed, pulled or yanked then yelled some more at Tenn. He was such an ass that Michael didn't want to talk because of him. He couldn't keep his mouth shut for nothing. The camera crew is taping and he still couldn't keep his mouth shut, they have a clue and he couldn't keep his mouth shut, they are trying to clear Tony on the sly and just because he's scared for Ronan he tells the entire squad. No, just no there is no way he was even a half good detective and he can't keep his mouth shut for shit. The relationship dynamic to me for Ronan and Tenn was not good and made no sense. Why would Tenn like him? I mean really would you like someone that talked and treated you in that manner? No, it's abusive behavior and in real life we are told to steer clear of people with those behaviors but in books it's supposed to be attractive. I don't think so.

What I liked! Not much but I did like Tenn, he was sweet but even sweet people can say shut the fuck up to rude people some time and he didn't but I still liked him. I liked Tony and his wife. Great couple. And that is all I liked about this horrible book. Oh I listened to the audio version and the narrator was Awesome. (less)

More superpowers than mystery

The premise was interesting, but the execution wasn't to my taste. This feels like a premise for a cop show, except instead of building chemistry, the two mains have insta-lust. When the villain is introduced, I thought he was going to be a red herring because he was so obviously a Bad Guy. The MC is okay, though I think there are inconsistencies with their characterizations, such as the cop's backstory with his ex. The climactic showdown is the book's weakest point. Badguy is so over the top, the mains have a series of 'clues' that are really some epic-level conjecture, and the cop character basicly decides to turn vigilante to deal with the badguy instead of actual police procedure...

My suspension of disbelief couldn't take it, but if you like a light-weight romantic action that is more super-power-y than paranormal mystery, this book should float your boat.

On top of this, I did not care for the narrator, especially the sex scenes. Volume and emphasis turned to 11 the whole time, and the scenes are long.

It was all good up to chapter 40

The bad guy was pretty obvious from about 30% in but as its a love story, not a criminal mastermind novel - that didnt matter. Enjoyed it right up to chapter 40 when the psychic had a completely TSTL moment followed by the cops all joining in. There didn't seem to be any attempt at rational behavior or police procedure - and this completely ruined the book for me. So annoying because as i said it was doing well up to that point.
