Editor reviews

Rob Thurman’s edge-of-your-seat paranormal thriller centers on the clairvoyant Jackson Lee Eye, who discovers his "gift" as a young boy when he finds his murdered sister’s pink shoe and who seems content with living the rest of his life in relative obscurity; that is, until he’s unwillingly plunged into an investigation involving a surreptitious government program on out-of-body experiences.
Performer Jeff Hoyt is more than up to the task in embodying the jaded, foul-mouthed protagonist, and is particularly adept at capturing the witty, rapid-fire banter between Eye and his ex-friend’s brother Hector in this riveting listen.

Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of the Cal Leandros series delivers a bold new supernatural thriller where one man’s extraordinary abilities come with an equally phenomenal cost.
Picking up a small, pink shoe from the grass forever changed young Jackson Lee’s life. Not only did its presence mean that his sister Tessa was dead - murdered and stuffed in the deep, black water of a narrow well - but the shoe itself told him so. Tessa’s death triggers an even more horrific family massacre that, combined with this new talent he neither wants nor can handle, throws Jack’s life into a tailspin. The years quickly take him from state homes to the streets to grifting in a seedy carnival, until he finally becomes the cynical All Seeing Eye, psychic-for-hire. At last, Jackson has left his troubled past behind and found a semblance of peace.
That is, until the government blackmails him. After Jackson is forced to help the military contain the aftermath of a bizarre experiment gone violently wrong, everything he knows about himself will change just as suddenly as it did with his little sister’s shoe.
And while change is constant...it’s never for the better.

Don't Touch!

When his sister is found dead, Jack suddenly receives the power of a psychic. Years of isolation are shattered when he is drafted by the government to save a respected scientist.

The story got a bit daft from here, in that the scientist has discovered a way to travel through the ether, and can only be brought back from sites where horrendous murders have occurred! Jack's psychic powers are sought to deliver these sites and save the day.

Finally on Audible -- GREAT read

Available since July in paperback, but I waited until this was available in Audible and I am glad I did. Hoyt seems an odd choice for the younger Jackson Lee, but it works as flashback once you get used to his style. And he does well with the range of voices, male and female.

The book hooks you from the start -- you feel for the anti-social, sarcastic psychic, Jackson Lee. The book could have been longer (ended too soon for me), but the ending leaves me believing this is only the beginning and we will see more of Jackson Lee, which is a good thing.

And now if all of the Cal Leandros series were available on Audible, I would be a very happy reader. Rob Thurman has a signature style of razor sharp sarcasm that plays well in audible format.

Dark non-supernatural supernatural story...

I was quite surprised at how much I liked this book. It is quite dark and it isn't full of various supernatural beings trying to have sex with each other (what you usually find in this genre). It actually felt more like a mystery than an urban fantasy, or ghost story. Actually, it wasn't a ghost story at all, and barely an urban fantasy... there are no special abilities here, other than those of the main character, and the only other 'oddity' in the setting was the technical capability that caused the 'mystery' in the first place (so, in many ways, it is closer to sci-fi supernatural than fantasy supernatural).

The characters are extremely well-drawn (well, the main ones anyway), and we like the good guys and we even understand the bad guys, to a point. I almost hate to say it but I was surprised to find out it was a female author (though that explains the very fully fleshed main character). Yes, that is sad, but the bulk of the women writers I read in this genre are always going on about who is wearing what, how hot a particular man is, and discussing the color and movement of characters' eyes. None of that here - just a dark story with a sad premise and a satisfying conclusion.

The narration is very good. There isn't any sex or swearing, but there is some violence, though it was not extreme. I looked for more books by Thurman when I finished this one.
