Talking With The Dead by Shiloh Walker
A horrific tragedy blasted open a door in young Michael O’Rourke’s mind—cursing him with the ability to talk with the Dead. Nearly two decades later, Michael has moved from victim to survivor, using his abilities to seek out those who would go unjudged.
With his gift, he talks to those who’ve died violently and seeks out their killers. Only once he’s found the murderer, can the victims be at rest. After his last case, the only thing he wants is peace and he hopes to find it in the small town of Mitchell, Indiana.
But something is horribly wrong—the dead are waiting for him there, as well.
Small town sheriff Daisy Crandall is frustrated. The murder investigation she’s leading is going nowhere, the few leads she’s had haven’t panned out. She needs a break—this case is personal and when a stranger arrives, turning up where he shouldn’t be, she’s suspicious. Finding out that he is more than what he appears to be should shock her but doesn’t. The fact she’s highly attracted to him at the worst possible time is a hindrance.
Unfortunately, teaming up with Michael is the only way.
Now it’s a race against time before the killer destroys the life of his next victim…
My Review ……
Micheal/Mikey has lived a solitary life, he had done ever since the only person he loved was taken from him…..
Daisy moved from the Louisiana to Mitchell in Indiana for a slower pace of life, but wouldn’t you know it, that’s not going to happen, six murders in her town and no damn clues as to who is it, or where he will stroke next. It’s so frustrating, all she needs is one lucky break, then she’s going to hunt this bastard down and take him out …..
Driving into Mitchell, (Indiana) Micheal thinks he’ll get a break, he needs a little peace and solitude. He’s a cop, and a good one, but his last case was a bad one, a rapist and a killer, but the killer got his comeuppance (his last victim literally stopped his heart!)
Daisy is both irritated and intrigued at the stranger before her. He seems like an ok guy, but is it a coincidence that he’s here? Could he have knowledge of the murders? Or is he part of it?
I really liked this prequel, I had wished it to be longer, there was a few things wrong with it, in parts it felt a little jumpy, and things were wrapped up a little too quick and neat. I understand it’s a novella, but we could have had a little more of the murders background and thought process.
