Where five senses meet, a sixth is born…
In a quiet, residential neighbourhood of Portland, Oregon, an unknown young
woman uncovers a shocking crime scene by inexplicably sensing the evil within
its walls.To the police, she herself is a mystery.She appears on no government
records, has no past and can’t even tell the police her own name.
Christened Jane Doe and suffering terrifying hallucinations, she is assigned
to Nathan Fox, a forensic psychiatrist struggling with his own demons after
witnessing his parents’ murder as a child.Together they must piece together the
jigsaw that is Jane’s identity.
Then a sequence of brutal killings terrorise the city and Fox learns Jane is
the only cryptic link between the unrelated victims.To solve the murders,
discover who she is and diagnose her condition, Fox must discard his black and
white preconceptions, look beyond the spectrum of normal human experience and
confront the dark truth of her past…and his own.
Thrillers have to be up there are one of my favourite kinds of books and this book did not disappoint. From the very first page I found myself hooked.
I found the book to be fast paced however in the middle of the book I did find that the pace of the book did slow down but it soon picked back up again.
All the characters were brought to life through the authors vivid descriptions and all the characters had a purpose within the novel.
I was worried that I was not going to understand the medical condition that Jane had and then not be able to get into the book. However Michael Cordy described the condition so simply that I was able to fully understand the condition and learn something new as well.
I loved how the book ended it has left the characters open to returning in another book and if a sequel is down I will be one of the first in the queue to get my hands on a copy.
Overall a very well thought out and original novel, I highly recommend it to everyone.
