Primal Instinct by Janie Crouch

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Debut author Janie Crouch brings a fresh twist to the table in this thrilling suspense. The FBI has been chasing its tail trying to find any clues on the killer called Simon Says. It’s due to this that FBI agent Conner Perigo boss sends him and his partner to bring in an outside consultant that use to work with the FBI 10 years ago. She was named the Bloodhound for being able to close cases that no one else could. Conner doesn’t believe in psychics and feels going to ask her to help them is a waste of time.

Adrienne Jeffries was only 18 when she helped the FBI find killers. But it didn’t take long for her to have a breakdown and retreat to a quite farm raising horses. Adrienne doesn’t have the typical psychic abilities – she is only able to feel when a person has malicious intent and can then see through their eyes and feel and hear what they are thinking. I thought the scenes where she was connecting with a angry/evil person were so powerful you could almost feel through the pages what she was going through.

I was pleasantly surprised throughout this book not only with the suspense part of the book but also with the humor. Every time I read Special Agent Jackass I cracked up. I enjoyed this book and hope that someday the author will write about Adrienne’s sister’s who it seems also have some type of abilities but were only briefly mentioned. Looking forward to seeing what’s next from this author.
