Review

The reader won't find the time to discover a "psychic signature" in the pages of this book because it just sizzles hot, asking to be read in a single sitting!

About the Author

The immensely popular Booktown Mystery series is what put Lorraine Bartlett's pen name Lorna Barrett on the New York Times Bestseller list, but it's her talent -- whether writing as Lorna, or L.L. Bartlett, or Lorraine Bartlett -- that keeps her there. This multi-published, Agatha-nominated author pens the exciting Jeff Resnick Mysteries as well as the acclaimed Victoria Square Mystery series, and now the Tales of Telenia fantasy saga, and has many short stories and novellas to her name(s).

Format: Paperback
This is the 3rd book in the Jeff Resnick series I've read. A special thank-you to the author and publisher, Polaris Press, for issuing it in book form.

This series is not a cozy and does not pretend to be a cozy...but as a cozy lover I have been engrossed in this series from the start. Jeff Resnick has some serious health issues most of which stem from that horrific mugging and beating he endured at the start in "Murder On The Mind". Besides the health issues Jeff also has received the gift of a paranormal...is that a gift or a curse. His paranormal abilities make themselves known when least expected often throwing Jeff off balance in more ways than one.
The intense feelings Jeff experiences regarding relationships with others whether in his family or just friends are at time painful to read. I find myself wishing someone could relieve Jeff of his headaches and even his paranormal insight. In this installment of Jeff's life he feels the same. The insights he experiences of his brother(Richard) and Brenda(Richard's wife)are issues he can't deal with.

I appreciate the way the author brings me right into the picture from the first page on. My feelings are of my returning to Richard & Brenda's kitchen to sit down and share a cup of coffee. I am going to go out on a limb and say that the Jeff Resnick series is my favorite of this autor's series'.

A definite thumbs up for this 3rd installment in the Jeff Resnick series.
Ellen

Having read the previous Jeff Resnick mysteries was eager to make his acquaintance once again and I was not disappointed, L L Bartlett takes you captive on the first page and doesn't let go until the last sentence. The pace was fast and descriptive without too much unnecessary embelishment, the author also manages to weave different threads into the story culminating in a tour de force ending. We learn more of the difficult upbringing of both Jeff and his half-brother Richard which adds colour and depth to these strong characters and the story. I do hope another mystery in this series isn't too long in being published as I am sure it will live up to its expections. If you haven't acquainted yourself with the works of L L Bartlett I recommend you do now.

I wanted more Jeff Resnick and boy did the author deliver with a bang! The characters that I love are back and again, Jeff is in the thick of things trying to protect his loved ones. Who is trying to harm Brenda? Will Jeff's ability be there for him? What about those dreams? All these questions kept me riveted to the pages until the last sentence. The author has a few surprises for us including an OMG! moment and the suspense was both terrifying and exhilarating. This is an awesome read and I can't wait to read the next Jeff Resnick story.

A few short months before, Jeff Resnick thought he had been an orphan, or so he thought. Sometimes he wished he still was, except perhaps for his half brother Richard. Dr. Richard Alpert if you wanted to get technical. He lived in a carriage house apartment on his property and had no complaints about living there. Richard and his wife Brenda were, well, as good as you're going to get for relatives. Headaches from a mugging that landed him in the hospital with a broken arm, a skull fracture and resulted in Richard getting shot, but that was all behind them now. What lay ahead seemed equally unsavory.

His father, Chester Resnick, just came out of the woodwork only to dredge up "thirty-two years of submerged anger." And the dying old geezer with a cannula up his nose brought along with a sister for him who may as well have had b-i-m-b-o written on her forehead. When she asked Jeff why Richard married that jiga . . . she didn't even have to finish that question before he want to hurl. He was psychic, but he could sense trash without even having to get within an inch of that broad. Lord knows, he'd seen enough of that sort at "The Whole Nine Yards," the neighborhood sports bar he worked at. There were no "nuclear scientists" on that side of the family for sure. Why didn't they just go away?

Jeff had his "share of peeing in soup cans" when he worked as a field agent for an insurance agency. He could sense that a deadly situation was coming on board quickly, but he wasn't quite sure what it was. He kept dreaming about his murdered ex, Shelley. It wasn't just her. There wasn't just one death, but "three unconnected deaths," that somehow had to connect, but how?

Eight months ago unemployed insurance investigator, widower Jeff Resnick is on his way home from hanging with his friends when he's waylaid by a couple of punks with baseball bats. Long story short, he's put into the hospital with a broken head and arm, a concussion, and his apartment is pillaged. Enter into the picture his long estranged, and wealthy physician half-brother Richard Alpert and his significant other, the African-American Brenda, whom he finally married in "Dead In Red". Also in that novel while still recuperating from his beating, Jeff has found work as a bartender for "The Whole Nine Yards", while Richard has found work at the University of Buffalo School of Medicine, and here Brenda is doing volunteer work at a local women's clinic.

While doing his volunteer work at the university, Richard finds out that Jeff's biological father, Chet Resnick, who abandoned Jeff when Jeff was a child, is still alive, but is well on the road to the end to his life. This understandably leads to mixed feelings in Jeff, and this will be compounded by Jeff finding out that he also has a half-sister, Patty, who is the apple of his estranged father's eye.

Because the woman's clinic will do some abortions, the now pregnant Brenda is being harassed by a bunch of self-righteous, glory seeking, anti-choice, compulsive pregnantists. And caught in the middle between Richard trying to get Jeff to reconcile with his lost side of his family, and Brenda's harassment, is Jeff trying to patch together his relationship with his on again and off again girlfriend Maggie Brennan, and deal with visions of a slow, sadistic death of an elderly man, and that of the possible death of Brenda's unborn child.
