Loved this book. Am not finished yet with the book, but once I started the first page, I didn't want to put it down. It is a steady read and makes you wanna keep reading to find out what is going to happen next. Am enjoying each of the characters.

Such a fun read!!! I couldn't put it down once I started it and as such finished it in one afternoon while sitting outside. I found the concept very thought provoking. I highly recommend this book and look forward to seeing more from this author...perhaps even a continuation of the characters adventures!

it was amazing

This was a wonderful book. It had twists at the end that I didn't see coming! I just sat and read the last 60 pages or more because I couldn't put it down. Looking forward to the sequel.

When Homicide Detective Katie Hanson woke up in the hospital after her suicide attempt, she could never have imagined that the decision to end her life would open the door to the spirit world. As she learns to navigate the waters of being a medium, she finds that she is also able to see through dimensions and receives unexpected help on her current case from her parallel world counterpart who she calls P-Kate.
Working closely with her parallel double and the spirits of the deceased victims, Katie investigates the department’s cold cases.
As her case unfolds, Katie realizes that a deceased witness’s testimony can be just as flawed as the living. Nothing is as it seems. The victim’s testimony does not match the evidence. Will following the guidance of her parallel double lead her to the truth or cause her to arrest an innocent man?
