Alex Hill buried his psychic talents for eighteen years. But with the scream of tires and twisting metal all this changes.
His girlfriend, Police Sergeant Veronica Ross, is nearly run down by two teenagers leaving her depressed and troubled. After calming her down they get a call from the Coroner's office and learn that both the driver and passenger of the wrecked car had already been dead for almost twelve hours before the accident. Furthermore, they hadn't been killed in any vehicle accident, the pair had been drowned.
Upon hearing this he feels his powers stirring again and goes with Veronica to see the coroner in order to learn more. But, as soon as they reach the doors of the Morgue he is psychically assaulted by an unknown force.
Taking the attack as a warning, he tries to resist getting involved further. But, his talents soon lead him directly to the place where the teenagers died. It is the stream underneath an old stone bridge that is supposedly haunted by the White Lady.
Unfortunately for him, both the bridge and stream are on the Graham Estate. The very property he is now representing as a real estate agent.
Soon the body count begins to rise, and each new death is somehow attached to the stream. To make matters worse, Alex soon finds himself on the suspect list because he has the most access to the property and no alibi for any of the incidents.
Now, in order to clear his name and learn who or what is behind all the killings, Alex must decide whether or not to embrace the very abilities he has shunned for so long...

Recently there's been a lot of discussion of Amazon Kindle's latest program... "Kindle Unlimited".
Now for those of you have heard but don't know a lot about it, here's a quick recap in a nutshell.
*Remember: this is only a brief overview and not an in-depth piece. I understand there are still some details to be ironed out*
With Kindle Unlimited, you pay $9.99 a month to have unlimited access to Kindle books through Amazon. You don't have to 'buy' the books, you simply have access to them. Sort of like a private library that you pay a monthly fee to have access to. Now considering there are literally thousands of books on Kindle this is a pretty good deal for consumers. You can sample and read any the books and decide if you actually want to purchase a copy for yourself in e-book or maybe go for an actual print copy, without wondering whether or not the book is to your taste.
So on the surface, this sounds pretty good right? So how does thi…
REVIEW BY HELEN KRUMMENACKER
I’m starting this book review with the book still unfinished. It’s the kind of book that you think about a lot while reading it, even as you itch to turn the pages again. I can’t compare it to the movie or TV show, as I wanted to read it rather than watch it. I would advise this, although the adaptations may be excellent. The voice of the narrator is crucial. The voice of the narrator is crucial to the story’s style. We begin, a little scared, a little confused, picking up meaning from tiny details-- because that is what she can give us. Her voice becomes clearer, gradually, as she moves farther from the drugging and brainwashing and has time to rebuild her story and factor in the new things.

Sometimes, it sounds like she’s afraid of being executed and sometimes it sounds like there is something w…
