Inspired by the murder of Elisa Lam by the Original Night Stalker, Wechselblatt leaves readers on the edge of their seat with the paranormal mystery novel.

Any fan of true crime, fantasy, or classic thrillers will not be able to put this novel down. The alternating points of view take us deep into the minds of detective Carver, Alicia the psychic, and even Richard Ramirez and the demon he summons. 

I absolutely loved this one and only gave it four stars because I was at times confused. Sometimes I think I just don’t have the brain capacity to follow along with fantasy novels, but this one at least kept me engaged and working to understand. I recommend this whole heartedly. 

Thanks you to Barring Publications and Netgalley for gifting me an advanced readers copy of this book in return for my honest review.

I absolutely love this thriller!  It’s a slow build but I couldn’t wait to find out what happened.  I was completely engrossed in the story.

John Carter is a homicide detective who tends to see the world in black and white. That all changes when a psychic claims to have knowledge of a young woman’s body found floating in a rooftop water tank on a seedy hotel. While Carter wants to dismiss the psychic’s claims, she seems to have remarkable insight into the case, one which now involves his own daughter, the same age as the girl in the water tank. Somewhat similar to both a real mystery and a Japanese horror movie, this book is s spooky and compelling read

Hmmmm this book was a little different for me, I did enjoy reading it, but its not really my type of read?! But it did have suspense, intrigue, action, and a crazy demon! As for this type of read? I think I would try it again! If you're into this genre it was an awesome book! Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for sharing this book with me!
