Superstition

by Karen Robards

April 15, 2005 | Hardcover

Superstition is rated 4 out of 5 by 4.
Sparks fly between a police chief and a reporter who are thrown together when a brutal killer comes out of hiding after fifteen years.
Pawleys Island, South Carolina. Sunny, idyllic, and picture perfect, until a tabloid news program airs a splashy segment about the community''s only unsolved murder-the grisly stabbing of teenager Tara Mitchell and the subsequent disappearance of her two best friends, both thought to be long dead. In the years since the murders, several families have moved into the mansion where the crime occurred, each claiming that the dead girls still haunt the house. Beautiful redheaded reporter Nicole Sullivan, sensing the story that could be her big break, arranges for her mother, a renowned psychic, to contact the three victims via a live s?ance on the show "Twenty-four Hours Investigates."
But something goes terribly wrong during the segment, and a young woman is murdered in the exact same manner as Tara Mitchell was fifteen years earlier. Pressured by her producers to get the inside story, Nicole is ordered to continue to investigate. As an attraction grows between Nicole and police chief Joe Franconi, another identical murder occurs, along with a menacing note warning that the original killer is back to claim three more lives. The body count rises, and so does the danger to Nicole, who is attacked, barely escaping with her life. She and Joe are forced to join forces as it becomes clear that the killer has set his sights on Nicole as his next victim.
Tightly plotted and deeply suspenseful, "Superstition" is Karen Robards''s most captivating work yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't get any sleep I could not put this horrible book down. It grips you from the first page until your eyes cross at three o'clock in the morning. The only small complaint I could give is I wish there was a little more plot including Brian and Cleo. Karen Robards is one of the better writers out there today and I have yet to fine one of her novels that I haven't liked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superstition Loved it! This book was vintage Robards, lots of suspense and romance as well. The character development was good and the story was intriguing. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Karen Robards or Iris Johansen. I didn't want to put it down!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from average "ghost" story i have read a number of karens books and this one was just average for me. I found the pace a little slow and it was not as much of a ghost/murder mystery as i thought it would be. It wasan average read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Between 'good' and 'disappointing'... The first Karen Robards book I picked up was Bait, and I enjoyed that one. I liked this one, but I was disappointed. I don't know what Karen was thinking but first, the title doesn't go with the story! The action was good, especially at the end, and you could feel the static between Nicky and Joe, but Karen went way, way, way overboard with her details and descriptions. It made the book over-long for nothing, and I was starting to lose interest half-way through, but I stuck with it and glad I did. Yes, the book is good, but not what I was expecting... especially with Susperstition as the title.
