My Review

3 stars

Tim Scullion takes us along on a night visit of 43 different locations in Williamsburg, Virginia. We find ourselves in various churches, houses, and taverns. We learn the history of each location with other sightings. We see many photos of these locations many with orbs. Then Tim uses his editing to separate and sharpen these orbs or flashes found in the pictures which results in faces being seen.

I loved the pictures and the history behind all the locations. That is itself made this book for me. I love the paranormal, especially ghosts, and I enjoyed all the stories behind each location. There are beautiful color photographs and I love the little notes of paranormal activity.

Where I’m torn on reviewing this book is the enhanced photographs. They could very well be real and I’m just too skeptical. But when you see the enhanced photos they look rather over edited. The faces are exaggerated and look off. This took away from the book for me.

If the book stayed with the history, stories, and picture of the locations I would have liked it more. But the edited photos ruined it for me. If you like paranormal that focuses around ghosts I would say check it out, you may have a new vacation destination.

I received Haunted Historic Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia from Schiffer Publishing for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.

Beyond Evidence (Patrick McLaughlin – 1) by Emma Clapperton

A chilling supernatural thriller

In an alleyway in Glasgow lies a decomposing corpse of a slain female baking in the midday heat. No one has found her yet, but medium Patrick McLaughlin knows she is there. It is not the first time he has dreamt of death… and it will not be the last.

When several bizarre murders take place the local police start to request DNA samples from twenty something year old men.

Through a hunch, and in the belief that the terrifying dreams hold the key to the identity of the murderer, Patrick works alongside the police to track down the predator before they can strike again. But as the nightmares increase they begin to threaten Patrick’s sanity.

What price will Patrick have to pay to stop the killer striking again? His friends? His family? His life?

My Review

4 stars

We start with a young lady that has been drugged and is being hunted down and killed. We then meet Patrick McLaughlin. He is a psychic and has been having terrible dreams. After reading the newspaper about several women that have been killed he realizes that his dreams relate to these deaths. Patrick and his girlfriend Jodie (also psychic) head to the police to help them with the investigation. Although skeptical, detectives Preston and Lang take the help since they don’t have any other leads. Patrick and Jodie are going to be dancing on the line between life and death as they hunt down a killer that is not about to stop.

I read Suicide Plan and loved Patrick McLaughlin from the start of that story. I couldn’t wait to see what happened in Beyond Evidence. Patrick is a great person that has had some difficulties from his psychic abilities. And although he knows that people are skeptical he is determined to help the girls that have been killed.

This is a great paranormal thriller and I couldn’t help but cheer Patrick on. Although we know who the killer is following along as he is determined to keep killing added a fresh approach to the story. The psychic ability also was written well without sounding corny. This is a great thriller and one to add to my shelf.

I received Beyond Evidence from Bloodhound Books for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
