Summary:

Investigative consultant Sherry Moore is blind and stunningly beautiful, with the extraordinary ability to 'see' the deceased's last eighteen seconds of memory by touching the corpse. A head injury at age five left her without sight and prevented her from remembering her past. When Sherry discovers she has the sight, she learns to use her gift to help others solve mysteries that only she can tap into.

Serial killer Earl Sykes was never caught for his vicious murders. Instead, a deadly traffic accident landed him in prison. Now almost thirty years later, he returns to the seaside town of Wildwood, New Jersey -- and to abducting young female victims for his gruesome games.

Wildwood police lieutenant Kelly O'Shaughnessy is stymied over the disappearance of young women. When an old man's untimely death leads Sherry Moore to Wildwood, O'Shaughnessy's desperation forces her to accept Sherry's help, but not without consequence. As the two women join forces to discover the killer's identity, they unwittingly become the hunted, marching deeper with every step into the monster's lair.

A law enforcement veteran himself, George Shuman packs a realistic style and authentic investigative detail into this taunt tale filled with pulse pounding tension that will send listeners right to the edge.

    I am not one of those people who is completely disbelieving of supernatural or extra-sensory powers in stories. But, this whole concept with the main character who can see the last 18 seconds of thoughts from any dead person, is a whole lot of farfetched. Once you choke that idea down, the story itself is not bad - decently written and OK plot, although I wasn't crazy about the characters who get killed off in the end (don't worry, I won't spoil it). Short story, I was mildly entertained, but not enough to look at reading any more stories in this series.

    I wish this was an unabridged version. I liked it from beginning to end. Hope there is another book about Sherry Moore.

    with a really touching LAST paragraph! Since this was the abridged version, the pace was quick, the story gripping, the ending probably predictable except the VERY end. Listen to this one and you will enjoy it.

    This was a riveting, well-written and well-read book. The author uses the declarative sentence style effectively. The characters were real and the plot well crafted.

    I enjoyed this book immensely. Would like to have seen it unabridged. The last CD rapped everything up too quickly. Will read the book to fill in the gaps.
