They all lived together for stability, but it was a tense situation with no real right answer. Action packed, I really didn't care for the psychic thing. It soon becomes apparent after sitting to watch Deadly Dreams that it is at best only a weak copy of an Elm Street film. Both Risa and Nate are loyal, intelligent, hard working people.

Feb 18, Layla rated it liked it Shelves: Honestly, I found it quite jarring to the whole rhythm of the story when suddenly they decided to be atracted one to each other.
Suspense, drama, mystery, romance.. Brant for your writing, characters, and story telling! View all 4 comments. This was, how should I put it, underwhelming. First of all, I don't like reading about people killing cops. That's one layer of this story. The way this killer is doing it is as detailed as you can get without spoiling the who. Next, I'm not a fan of corrupted ones either. None of this is a spoiler since it becomes clear what's going on right in the beginning.
Risa dreams about the murders. But she doesn't want to participate because the past mistak This was, how should I put it, underwhelming. But she doesn't want to participate because the past mistake that haunts her so she can't even look at her gun let alone touch it. If you 'heard' my eye-roll there, good. Risa's issues aren't done well. Anyway, stuff happens and she tags along the task force leader, Nate. They investigate stuff and it's boring as hell. There are so many abused women in this book.
Risa is not one of them, of course. She has other demons and they aren't that interesting. Other women are Nate's sister Kristin has a five year old disabled child and acts in the way you want to strangle her , his partner Cass to say she has terrible taste in men would be an understatement; often bruised and Risa's mother see Cass, but in the past.
None of this is important for the story, though. Nate is a nice guy who wants to save everyone. He has some weird notions like if a woman can look at a dead body without being sick, it's not surprising because ' there was a reason people said women were the stronger sex. Risa is even worse: Don't be a girl about it. The suspense part of the story isn't horrible, but the main characters never make you like them. The best I could push myself was indifference. It doesn't help the villains both the killer and his victims are so over-the-top, I almost imagined one of the cops twirling his moustaches.
The killer's motivation is weak too - view spoiler [the revenge part is fine, but not the reasoning twenty years later. God, that was bad, embarrassing even. People use words 'zero chemistry' often, but this could stand as a textbook example of it.
Overall, I find this series interesting enough to continue with the rest. I did like the previous books, after all. This book didn't live up to my expectations. Sep 15, Keri rated it really liked it Shelves: Still a very good read. All of Raiker's investigators have special talents and Risa isn't any different.
But after her last case she feels unable to cope with her talent or its aftereffects when things go wrong. She gets a visit from the sexy, gruff dark-eyed detective, Nate McGuire, about a burned dead body and her boss told his boss to have her come to the scene. Now neither one is happy about the situation. Risa at Raiker because he is p 4. Risa at Raiker because he is pushing her where she doesn't feel she is ready to go. On Nate's part he doesn't need the distraction of attractive blond nor her help on his case.
Of course neither of them realize the scope and gravity of what they are about to uncover and soon will rely on each other to figure out who the killer is, before Risa becomes his next target. If she is willing to trust in her gift again. What I really enjoyed about the book is the way KB built the investigation for us as the reader. Usually the minute details of how an investigation pans out is glossed over. But here they weren't and made for a very interesting, tight read to see how Nate and Risa connected the dots to catch a cop killer.
What wasn't so good was the romance what there was of it, took a long time to get there and when it did, the I Love yous were too quick to be believable. Risa and Nate made a good couple, but they were partners one minute and the next they were in bed. Still enjoyed the story enough that I didn't mind too much.
I am really looking forward to the next book, which is the yummy, scarred Adam Raiker's book. Mar 21, Catherine rated it really liked it Shelves: The romance aspect was light-- very light. I, personally, think it would fall more in line with regular Suspense. Even though it did show the main characters getting together, it was subtle and more of a background feature. They all lived together for stability, but it was a tense situation with no real right answer. Even Rissa had problems with her mom. I just really appreciated these details because it helped present a well rounded cast.
This was definitely not a book where the hero and heroine lived in a vacuum while they fell in love. The author did a great job pulling me into the case. The attitude toward the investigation and the procedural aspects of the story seemed very well done. The book started a little slow, but I was soon pulled in. It was up to Rissa to find the important details and interpret them.
What he has been through, and the strength that he has shown in not only surviving but living , captured my attention right away. He is a man who has been through hell and back and it shows, literally. I was never quite able to forget that I was reading a book.
Her mouth quirked as she turned slightly to prevent his grab for the paper.
I don't encourage it. View all 9 comments. Jun 13, Glory rated it liked it. Apr 17, jenjn79 rated it it was ok Recommended to jenjn79 by: I ended up rather disappointed in this book. I expected so much more from it and just didn't get any like I was hoping for. Fifth book in the "Mindhunters" series about and independent forsenics agency and it's agents.
I would suggest at least reading book 4 before reading this one. The first trilogy is pretty independent, but this second trilogy has an overall story arc. Marisa Chandler is an agent for Raiker forensics who has dreams about crimes - who did them, why, how, wher I ended up rather disappointed in this book.
Marisa Chandler is an agent for Raiker forensics who has dreams about crimes - who did them, why, how, where, etc. But when her dreams don't help her fully understand a child kidnapping case and she is unable to save a little boy, Risa hands in her resignation and takes time to heal her wounded shoulder. She is staying with her mom in Philadelphia when her dreams return, showing her the terror of a man being burned alive.
Risa is thrust into an investigation of a cop killer who has so far set 3 cops on fire. Heading the investigation is detective Nate McGuire. He's not thrilled with and outsider's help, but his main goal is to find out who is killing cops and why.
And as they search for clues, the two grow closer together and trusting each other may be all that will save Risa when the killer targets her. I had a lot of issues with the first trilogy in this series. Lack of thorough character portraits, over doing keeping the characters enigmatic, poor romance, not enough clues to the bad guy, etc.
But when I read the first book of the second trilogy, it seemed like the author had made a lot of improvement. I really enjoyed that book and didn't really have any major issues.
So I was expecting much of the same with this book. Unfortunately, this one regresses back to the same issues that the books in the first trilogy had.
