One of the best, most interesting books I've read in quite a while. If this is this author's first book, I can hardly wait to see the next one.

Tension-filled thriller about two brave women - one with uncanny psychic abilities - who unite to catch a murderous madman .... before he finds them first.

I thought this was a wonderful debut novel. Great characters and plot line. I'm glad he's writing another one featuring the MC Sherry Moore.

Very interesting concept. Somewhat of a poignant ending, but an admirably written book.

An excellent psychological thriller! The combination of parapsychology and real-world detective work keeps the pages turning! Shuman delivers an explosive first novel....looking forward to reading his next novel "Last Breath".

A bit disappointing as I expected much more then a sometimes confusing plot. In the end everything ran together but I missed the excitement. I found the ability to look into the last 18 seconds of a murdered person intriguing plot wise but it doesn't really focus on the ability itself or the ability to solve the crimes. As an introduction to a series, the second book Last breath has just been published in Aug. last year, I would have expected a better introduction of the main character Sherry Moore, which played more a featured part in the novel. Few of the elements felt original to me.

The author is very detailed in his writing. The book has good deal of information about the main character to begin with it takes a little time to get to the drama of the book. However, it is a good book to read.

George D Shuman crafts a pulse-pounding tension-filled thriller about two brave women who runite to catch a merderous madman before he finds them first.

I don't know where all these good reviews came from, I can barely give it a 1 star rating. None of the characters are interesting and Shuman has to give so much description about each one, it is so filled with unnecessary descriptions you can skip and skim to finally come to a good part but alas I never found that part. It is very very slow and it isn't anywhere near a suspense or a thriller, if it even had mystery to it I didn't find it. If Shuman is going to make a series he'll have to come up with something more interesting than this one and if a series develops I just don't see it as a good one
