Professional psychics learn to deal with skeptics, but Abby has to prepare herself for one steep uphill battle when she’s sent to San Diego to help train FBI officers to use their intuition. Her first challenge: a series of bank robberies in which the thieves made off with loads of cash but left no clues.
Abby’s sixth sense leads her team to a tract of land recently cleared for development. But instead of finding clues to the cash, Abby gets a vision of four buried bodies. A site search turns up some bones and pottery from an American Indian tribe, but that’s still enough to delay construction for years.
With a furious developer and dubious FBI agents on her back, Abby is losing credibility fast. But unlike the best laid plans, Abby’s talent rarely leads her astray. And if the bodies aren’t there yet, that means that four deaths can still be stopped. She’ll just have to dig a little deeper . . .
I really like how Abby’s psychic ability works. And how snarky she is. She and Candice work really well together.
In this book, most of the characters we’ve gotten to know from previous books aren’t around. Abby and Candice are in Los Angeles working on cases for the FBI there. Well, Abby is working on cases. Candice is a tag-along that wasn’t supposed to actually be there. She still helps Abby out a lot though. And I really liked getting to know Special Agent Hart, I hope we get to see more of her in other books.
I didn’t really like any of the other agents we meet. I didn’t dislike them either, with the exception of Special Agent Robinson. Mostly because we didn’t really get to know them very well.
I had no idea at all who the robbers were. It made totally sense after the reveal though. And I loved how Abby got them to confess! I also liked how all the other mystery threads were done. And the fact that Abby and Candice have to actually work to find the clues. A lot of cozies have the main characters just kind of stumble across evidence. But this series has them actually researching and going out and interviewing people. They don’t always find what they’re looking for, and sometimes they make mistakes.
All of that makes it a slightly more realistic way of tracking down the suspects, and sucks you into the story more. I read this all in one sitting because I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next. If you haven’t read this series yet, you need to do so!
