My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In this second installment in the Spirits series a clairvoyant is seeing the grisly murders of fashion models in Paris. This was a fast paced thriller set in the middle of the fashion capital of the world Paris, France.
Jon-Luc Boudreaux (sexy name, oui?) has been clairvoyant all his life. This was not an easy thing for him to live with growing up when he didn’t understand it. After running away from home at an early age he manage to find a man who understood what he was and helped him. Jon-Luc went on to become an FBI agent who had the best success rate at closing cases due to his gift. But after years of hiding his secret and seeing all the things he had he finally burnt out and quit the FBI. He decides to go to Paris to visit an old friend, Inspector Claude Rousseau. Right off the bat Jon-Luc is thrown into the investigation of fashion models turning up murdered.
Angela Henderson (who was in the first book) is now living in Paris working for a famed designer after an incident in New York made it to where no one would hire her in the fashion industry. Angela and Jon-Luc accidentally bump into each other a few times and realize there is an attraction there but don’t really connect until the latest death brings Jon-Luc to her due to her knowing the latest victim.
Where in the last book the entity was unseen in this one Jon-Luc has the misfortune to not only seeing the dead victims, he is also seeing through the eyes of the killer as the murders happen. It’s a race for Jon-Luc and Claude to try and figure out who the killer is before he targets his next victim and it’s not long before they realize that Angela is next on the list.
From the opening scene to the final I didn’t want to put this book down. The author did a great job of keeping you on the edge of your seat by giving you a glimpse into the killers mind and freaking you out with the bloody ghostly images of the victims as they came to Jon-Luc. This book wasn’t as scary as the first but still very chilling. I love how this authors mind thinks.
