18 Seconds by George D. Shuman

187042When she takes hold of a deceased person’s hand, Sherry Moore has the ability to see the last 18 seconds of that person’s thoughts. This gift is remarkable for anybody to possess, but the fact that Sherry has been blind since a childhood trauma makes the gift that much more impressive. Sherry uses this gift to assist police and detectives with cases that have gone cold.

This book is filled with suspense from cover to cover, and several different lives and cases are intertwined. I thought I had guessed a major plot element half way through the book, but I was wrong (and in this instance, I’m glad to have been wrong). I was disappointed in the way things ended, but it turns out that this is the first book in the series, and I’m curious to see what happens with Sherry in the future.
