A sought-after expert in criminal pathology, Dr. Charlotte Stone regularly sits face-to-face with madmen. At the age of sixteen, she herself survived a serial killer’s bloodbath. Because of the information she gave police, the Boardwalk Killer went underground, but Charlie kept her postmortem visions of the victims to herself. Years later, to protect her credibility as a psychological expert, she tells no one about these apparitions. Now a teenage girl is missing, her family slaughtered. The Boardwalk Killer—or a sick copycat with his M.O.—is back. This is the one case Charlie knows she shouldn’t go near. But she also knows that she may be the one person in the world who can stop this vicious killer, especially when she receives help from an unexpected source: The fiery spirit of a seductive bad boy who refuses to be ignored.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The last victim " This is the first time I have read Robards work and initially I was impressed. Rating it a 4. I could accept the interaction with the ghosts. But when it became so called "physical" I was having a bit of a hard time with it. The first time OK. But after that not so much. When the book seemed to focus on that relationship it tended to lose my interest. Fine keep the interaction with Micheal but take it to a different place. Not where it is consuming her every waking moment. I know that I will not be reading another Charley/Micheal book again. And this is what dropped the rating for me. I would recommend the book but not whole heartedly. I would just say it was OK

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent page-turner! This novel is the first I've read from Robards and I must say I was impressed! I was not able to put this book down , I would struggle to go to sleep at night because I just wanted to keep reading and find out what was going to happen next! There was not one time where I found it easy to stop reading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting Story Have always enjoyed Karen Robards books. This is another one that I really enjoyed, and didn't see it coming for the ending. Great suspenseful story and interesting characters. But who the killer was, didn't suspect and you did't find out til close to the end of the book. Love those kind of books. Looking forward to Karen's next book.
