This is the fifth installment in Ms. Brant's Mindhunters series. This story grabs your attention from the first word and holds it till the last. This series gets better with each book. This author is an auto buy for me. Be on the lookout for the next book, Deadly Sins, which will be out in August 2011.
Risa Chandler's prescient dreams of death and murder haunted her nights. They also proved invaluable for Adam Raiker's brilliant team of forensic criminologists, the Mindhunters, until a tragic end to one case shattered Risa's confidence and drove her into seclusion. But for Risa, there's no hiding from death-or from her dreams.
