Double Blind: Kate Benedict Paranormal Mystery #2 (The Kate Benedict Series) Kindle Edition
SOMEONE’S GOING TO DIE—AND IT COULD BE THE NEW PRIME MINISTER.
OR MAYBE KATE'S BEST FRIEND IN THE WORLD!
Two politicians and her best friend have the death-predicting auras London architect Kate Benedict can see despite her most fervent wishes. She’s had the dubious gift for a year now, and suddenly there’s no longer any ignoring it.
But the only way to get to the two pols is via her old friend, DCI Clarke; yet her warnings go unheeded. Her frustration builds when her best friend, Anita, refuses to believe in their existence as well — even when one appears over Anita’s boss in the hospital where she works. And then Anita develops her own aura.
A wild chase through seamy and posh London, clever detection, and an intricate plot make this paranormal mystery appealing to cozy and hard-boiled fans alike. In DOUBLE BLIND, the early promise Carrie Bedford showed in THE AURA is not only fulfilled, but even blooms and grows more sure-footed.
Double Blind is sure to delight fans of traditional British murder mysteries as well as anyone who likes female sleuths and international mysteries.
WHO ELSE WILL LIKE IT: Anyone looking for a new, fresh female sleuth, as well as fans of paranormal suspense, traditional (yet not too cozy) stories, contemporary British women detectives like the ones found on the BBC’s ROSEMARY AND THYME and MURDER IN SUBURBIA, and mysteries with a metaphysical twist, like Kay Hooper’s Bishop Files series, Iris Johansen’s THE PERFECT WITNESS, and Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunters books.
"Double Blind is a cozy mystery with intense characters who struggle in a world of pharmaceutical intrigue with political twists. Author Carrie Bedford writes with a high suspenseful flair and creates an engaging protagonist, Kate Benedict. Paranormal elements mix with murders, kidnappings, and a dash of romance, all racing through an unusual and satisfying plot. A fast read, well-written, and thoroughly enjoyable."

The main character is a young woman who started seeing dark, swirling auras over people who will soon die, but Kate has no way of knowing what they will die from. However, she learned in the first book, that sometimes, if she can figure out what the person is probably going to die from, she might be lucky enough to save them. At the same time, she has to try not to notice the impending doom of random strangers she encounters on the train or elsewhere. It is very stressful to have just enough foreknowledge to know that someone is going to die soon, but not of what cause or at a precise time. Kate has to try not to worry about every person she encounters. However, in this book, she bumps into a politician and his aide, who both have death auras. She figures that means it isn't a health issue, but an accident or assassination that would take out both men. She decides to stalk them and try to figure out and prevent whatever is about to happen. Meanwhile, her best friend, who doesn't know about her ability to see death auras, shows up with one around her! How can she save her friend? If she tries to explain her ability, her friend, a doctor, is likely to think she is mentally ill. So, there are multiple people Kate is trying to save; and therefore, several mysteries she is trying to solve. It's very engaging and takes place in London and the surrounding area.
