is the story of how Anna Gareau goes on a visit to Victoria and
accidentally taps into the mind of a killer. Anna is trying to
lead a somewhat normal life and is on a trip to deliver an item for
her friend and boss, an antiques dealer. However Anna has a
gift or, as she thinks of it, a curse where she is able to obtain
visions by touching personal items of people.
into a motel and in the morning a murdered woman is found in the
hotel swimming pool. As she is trying to retrieve her purse
she accidentally left in the pool room the night before, she takes
on the ruse of a police consultant. From there she meets
Colette Kostyna, whose boss is an author who writes books exposing
other's secrets. They wind up hiring Anna to investigate the
crime for them.
It soon becomes clear that Anna has
lied about being a police consultant however she and Colette
continue the investigation themselves as more bodies turn and weird
things keep happening that are all connected to a paper called "The
Rail". Colette's boss was to meet the drowned woman on the
morning of her death but was running late for the appointment.
Anna feels a compulsion to stay on not only for the money but due to
one of her visions.
From the cover blurb and what I had read
online about this book, I truly thought it would be right up my
alley. However, it was somewhat slow for my taste in books and
parts of it were just too unbelievable for me. I truly believe
with a somewhat faster pace and Anna using more of her talent
at touching this book could have been much better.
