Great book and that's my honest opinion. I'm only giving it four stars though because I think it may have been too good. Does that make sense? Hm, it probably does to most of you. Anyway, the characters didn't get on my nerves and it would seem that it ended pretty much the way I would have ended it. Common, happily, the good guys on top with just enough "issue" to make it seem as if it could have ended up worse; even though you knew it wouldn't.

This is the kind of story that was easy to read, a

MEMORY OF A MURDER by Earl Staggs is a tale told by a gentleman, a fine upstanding gentleman, one you’d like to have for a next-door neighbour. Adam Kingston, the protagonist, is a mere 44 years of age but he feels like he comes from an older time where grace prevailed and everyday cussing was a gentle banter between friends.

Curiously Adam is now an itinerant psychic consultant, formerly FBI. Not to worry, woo-woo plays a low key element in the story. Although Adam works alongside law enforcemen

Memory of a Murder by Earl Staggs held my interest from beginning to end and kept me turning the pages.

The homeless man has amnesia, which adds an interesting element to the story.

In the meantime someone is picking people off like fli

Took me by surprise how much I enjoyed this book. Not usually into psychic thrillers this one kept me on edge for hours. Characters are well developed with a story line filled with intrigue. This one is on my read again list to catch those moments of pleasurable reading.

This was a good book with just enough "woo woo" to keep it interesting but not so much that you felt the mystery couldn't be solved without it. I'll be looking for more books by this author.

Now here was a book which really kept me going. Author knows how to build characters and story worth your time. Clever use of some standard plots with a new twist.
