Editorial Reviews

Review

"PSI: Blue is laugh out loud funny and creepy at once! Walker's created a terrific character; ranks up there with Carl Hiassen and Janet Evonovich for sheer nerve. What happens in this book should not happen even to a fictitious person, but Rae Murphy Hiyakawa is up to the challenge! She's all woman and a hell of a psychic detective. Makes TV's Medium look like child's play." --J.A. Konrath, author Rusty Nail, a Jack Daniels Mystery

"…graphic and disturbing but it is not gratuitous…right amount of detail and drama…intense …mystery, danger, suspense, family conflict and drama. A rich, suspense filled noir thriller is the end product of his word skill." --Barb Radmore, Front Street Reviews

"Bring On the Clowns sounds like a fun phrase but after reading PSI: Blue I won't think that again. …suspenseful…humorous. For a very different read pick up PSI Blue." --Mysteries Galore.com

From the Publisher

If you are one of those readers who can't help it...this is the book for you. Too often it is chillingly real, and yet you won't be able to put it down. Robert W. Walker has penned a novel that will stay with you long after you read the last word. But don't take our word for it.

More About the Author

MOST recent work available on Kindle and audiobooks via Audible.com. 57 titles in ebooks and 33 currently on Audible.com with 15 more in production, such as Killer Instinct and Titanic 2012, as well as many others. Latest Kindle book titles - The Canoneers - Ben Cross & The Guns of Ticonderoga, The Edge of Instinct finalized, and The RED PATH - historical romance in Civil War era very soon available. Work in Progress The Fear Collectors and another historical YA - Animiki - Brave of the Fire Nation.

New WORK this year has been The Canoneers, The Edge of Instinct, and The Red Path - a record year for output as I have published here on Kindle in Feb. two titles: the 12th in my award-winning, highly acclaimed INSTINCT SERIES - The EDGE of INSTINCT (also bk.#5 in EDGE Series/combined ensemble casts, you see). In addition, to introduce new readers to my EIGHT separate series characters, I published a book of EIGHT short stories under title of THRILLER PARTY of 8 - The One That Got Away.

Since two books put up in calendar year 2013 did not seem enough, I have now added in June a twisting, turning, churning, burning historical in the tradition of my Children of Salem meets Gone With The Wind entitled ANNIE'S WAR books #1 and #2 subtitled Love Amid the Ruins. Book #3 in this layered, complex pre-Civil War tale of the first home-grown terrorist attack on a US Armory in history, set in 1859 is through the eyes of the infamous John Brown? NO...through the eyes of his sexually active 17-year-old daughter.

While it chronicles what happened at Harpers Ferry, Virginia, the dramatic novel is one foremost of love and romance at the forefront, and it devolves into a fierce gun battle. It reads like a western for good reason. If a fan of the recent Kevin Costner film on the Hatfields and the McCoys, this fits right in that ballpark...and in fact, I modeled my John Brown on Kostner's role as Devil Anse. The two men would have had a lot in common. Anse and Brown that is...not Costner.

Book THREE of ANNIE's WAR will be published before end of June, so the entire trilogy, each at 2.99 will be available as will a hefty offering of the ENTIRE thee books in ONE kindle order for 5.99 - a real bargain. Counting Annie's Trilogy then in Calendar Year 2013 --so far-- I have completed and Kindled FIVE book-length works, Four being novels, One being Shorts, plus have shown up in three anthologies this year...and the year is only half over. There could be more! Meanwhile, my older titles are discussed below:


My previous several novels have been Original to Kindle, exclusvie works. Most recent has been TITANIC 2012 - Curse of RMS Tttanic, a cross-genre, generational suspense thriller with an occult horror twist. It's a new theory, a theory that proves the innocence of the iceberg, ha! Puts the burden of error squarely back onto Captain Edward Smith's shoulders, but it is also science fiction as it alternates chapters between 1912 and 2012. In future, divers go inside Titanic the Wreck to plunder her interiors. But what they find is murder and mayhem and monstrous stuff! See all ten reviews on Amazon.com

Just prior to launching T2012, I placed up CHILDREN of SALEM, romance and intrigue and ecumenical spies amid the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. Talk about a "Bad Time to Be in Love" - but Jere Wakely does love the daughter of an excommunicated witch, Serena Nurse, and he vows to put an end to the insanity of the trials. Painstakingly reseached for some thirty odd years, Children of Salem is both my life's work and now my highest grossing ebook to date, selling 255 copies a month and garnering great reviews (as is T-2012). Children of Salem is a big ambitious work that all my previous books have led me to return to over decades to rewrite and rewrite again and again until I got it right.

AFTERSCHOCK is among all my backlisted titles sold years ago to NYC publishers. Aftershock is the ebook bread-winner, the one which as sold the most copies and for a long time had been my leading title in sales. I placed up some 40 "odd" previously published titles ranging from horror and supernatural, occult horror and suspense-thriller to mysteries and historical themes, and now i have 46 Kindle titles available. Would be fifty if not for tie-ups on other titles.

One more recent modern day noir PI novels is DEAD ON from Five Star Books July '09 which has garnered rave reviews and wonderful remarks from Tess Gerritsen, Ken Bruen, JA Konrath, David Ellis, Raymond Benson, and Jay Boninsinga as well as Booklist! Prior to this my City trilogy, City for Ransom, Shadows in the White City, and City of the Absent published via HarperCollins and heralded as great books by The Chicago Tribune, winning the coveted Lovey Award, set the stage for my finally being able to get Children of Salem RIGHT.

A bit about myself: I grew up in Chicago as my father came out of WWII knowing one skill -- how to drive a truck. As a truck driver, he supported five children. I was born in Corinth, MS., siblings born in Tuskegee, AL., where my mother hailed from.

I struggled in school in inner-city Chicago, but early on found I had a gift for 'talking my way out of fights' and this translated into 'telling stories' to influence others, and soon wondered if I could not do it for money. I began writing at a young age to 'communicate' ideas and always at the root of my tales are ideas, notions, concepts, issues, fears, phobias,the dark side of human nature, twisted religion, the human condition, and themes I find fascinating like the injustice we see every day, and vengeance, and greed, and skulduggery all around.

In fact, much of my fiction centers on twisted this or twisted that...from twisted fantasies in the minds of killers to twisted religion in the minds of...yeah... killers and others. I have read widely in all areas of human endeavor and use all areas imaginable in the creation of my characters and stories, and my work is character-driven whether it is a suspense novel or an historical novel.

I recieved a full scholarship to Northwestern University out of Wells High School, inner city, which was some kind of feat, and it was based on my writing ability. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education, went on to accomplish a Masters in English Education. I've taught for over thirty-years to 'support' my habit -- writing. I have always taught full-time while writing full-time, and I 'make' time.

While I grew up in Chicago, and many of my books center there and in the Midwest, I am currently living in Charleston, WV where I am still teaching and writing. I live with four step-children and my ER RN wife, Miranda, whose first novel, a serial killer chase down romp called Absolution, is also available on Kindle. I completed my 50th novel for publication with Titanic 2012.

Wish to thank all my readers for the many, many years of support since writing the spoof on disaster films and books, SUB-ZERO in 1979, and those who supported my Instinct and Edge Series as well as my various horror and other suspense series. I have created no less than eight series characters, all of whom I intend to keep "alive" via Kindle original titles in future. I am currently working on a 4th Geoffrey Caine (pen name) Abe Stroud, archaeology horror title called Bayou Wulf.

First of all, let me say that the book has an intriguing concept and interesting plot. It is therefore a real shame that it was apparently written by a teenager with abysmal writing skills. It was just about impossible for me to slog through prose rife with not only typos, but blatantly improper word usage (thrown/throne, chute/shoot, chic/sheik, there/they're, cahoots/cohorts, pale/pail, your/you're) and ubiquitous use of 'd contractions. This author claims a long biography full of not much, and could have used some of those words in the content of his 'novel', by adding a few "would" "could" "did" "had" and other words to avoid such abominations as "Gene'd" and "the dog'd". I finally gave up trying to get through it. It reads like a self-published fantasy, and I am disgusted that I paid money to Amazon for it. AVOID.

The first chapter had me hooked, then
I read the rest. Rae's whining and
pissy attitude just got on my nerves. Her
daughter really needed an attitude adjustment. The final chapter was worth
reading but nothing in between was.

I'm glad I checked it out of the library instead of spending money.

It takes a very special writer to be able to combine multiple genres. Often writers standout in a specific genre..be it mystery or horror or paranormal...rare is it that a writer can combine them all and come up with a brilliant final product. The legendary writer Robert W. Walker has done just that with PSI:BLUE.

The plot is instantly absorbing, as a quick look at the synopsis will promise an intriquing read. Mr. Walker delivers on this promise. The aim of this review is to go beyond the plot and into the overall writing, as it is the true star. PSI:BLUE has it all. From the suspense and thriller aspects..spot on..the paranormal elements are perfectly weaved into the novel to enhance the plot and characters,not overshadow them. What is the cherry on top of this unforgetable book is the humor! Mr. Walker has used his razor sharp skills at molding prose to produce a magnificently hilarious book at the same time as retaining a level of suspense and edge of your seat mood. This very skill at magically inter-weaving genres so that each compliments the other is the keystone that has resulted in a truly remarkable read and a book I recommend without hesitation to all who crave a great read.

I enjoy fiction about psychics and paranormal investigations, along with an occasional non-fiction book or televison show on these subject. I've also read some of Walker's other books and liked them. However, this book was not for me. I just could not get interested so I passed it one to someone who was. Don't let my review stop any purchase, please; just read the info more carefully than I did.
