Book Description:



Nicole Baker is a quiet girl - the type of person who is seldom noticed by anyone. That is until one day she discovers she has the unique ability to see images move on photographs. At first, she uses her ability to entertain friends at parties and work. Then senior detective Paul Hammond learns of her ability and enlists her help in a case of unsolved murders that he has not been able to make any headway on.



Carl Kadner, a rookie reporter with the local paper is investigating the murders as well. And he learns what it takes to be the kind of reporter he wants to be when he puts himself in danger for the sake of the story. It is only when Carl, Nicole and Detective Hammond pool their resources that things start making sense.

My Review:

This is the story of an investigation done by Paul Hammond and other detectives about a few missing girls. The girls were dead with some parts removed and cut surgically in a barbaric way. Paul, Dan, and Ken are the detectives working on the case for more than 6 months but without much clues or leads to find the criminal

Fortunately, Paul meets 'Nicole' who is gifted with a talent through which she can learn the events happened at the time of the picture taken by just seeing the picture of anyone. She helps Paul a lot in giving clues about the murderer. Carl is a young reporter who investigates the missing girls' case on his own and he is par and above the police in finding the clues. How Police can catch the murderer? OR how Nicole can help in catching the murderer form the remaining story. 

What I liked?

I really enjoyed the thrill part of the book. The suspense is great and the sequence of events slowly revealing each part of the puzzle is worth reading the book. 

The characterization is good. Simmone is the best friend that everyone love to have. Katy is a unique personality being a law student and still encouraging crime. Carl though intelligent makes mistakes but works hard to write a good story for his paper. Sam is a protective father and a good person. Nicole is sensitive, helpful and very strong at the same time. 

I love the cover of the book, which is very apt. The title is ok.

What might have been better?

There are some typos in the book - names interchanged here and there and some typos. They might have been avoided with proper editing.

I felt, there is still one piece missing - there is no indication in the book about Nicole's ability and why is she connected to Will and not to anyone else. I was expecting to read this connection at the end of the book and was disappointed as it was not covered.

Overall, this is wonderful on the edge thriller and I would recommend this to all crime thriller lovers. 

My Rating: 4.5/5

PS: I have received this print copy from the author through Iread book tours and this review is my honest opinion.
