In the beginning, Graham Richards is just another, typical family man. A trip to a new shopping mall, however, ends all this with the murder of his family and a close-range shot to the face. Damaged and scarred both physically and mentally, Graham becomes a recluse unable to bear much concourse with his fellow human beings.
Detective Jodie Reyes suspects there is more to Graham than meets the eye, whena young girl is returned safely to her family after being abducted.
Then there is a new case in which a teen disappears, after witnessing something she shouldn't have.
There are some very dangerous people living within the vicinity of Jodie's watch. But will Graham agree to help her find the teen's kidnappers in time?
The idea that brain injuries can result in psychic abilities is not a new concept in this kind of fiction and it jarred a little with the gritty realism of what seemed like a hard-boiled detective novel in the beginning. However, there is also some fairly florid horror in terms of the discoveries made in the course of uncovering the mysteries here. There were certainly some less-than predictable twists and turns in the telling. All in all, a good read.
