Insane or normal?
Addictive, mesmerizing, brilliant
The complex interweaving of the story lines kept me thirsting for more. From stories of individuals and their families to government conspiracy this book covers a range of topics and emotions.
The haunting quality in her voice as she read the dialogue brought the book to life
Most definitely, the story drew you in
The combination of a creative, brilliant writer paired with an excellent narrator makes for an event you don't want to miss.

Delirium - Where madness touches the sane
This is one of my top audiobooks in the thriller genre. I was on the edge of my seat from the moment of Dr Christian Monro is murdered. It was a wonderfully weaved story that brought mental health issues to the fore and built on the story of Detective Sergent Jamie Brooke from Desecration.
Blake Daniels is still my favourite character because he is a reluctant psychic and the death of his father was touching despite the painful history there. The mystery of his father and the distant yet deeply loving relationship he has with is mother were beautiful to me. I was so worried about him when he was kidnapped and well, I can't reveal what happens to him. All I am glad about is that Detective Sergent Jamie Brooke overcame of vulnerabilities and listened to her own intuition and went to him in his time of greatest need.
I think that Rosalind Ashford brings a sense of authenticity to the London Psychic series and the characters become realistic in my mind from the way that she narrates and acts the story for the listener. Her use of tone and pace help bring this story to life in a way that I wouldn't necessarily experience if I were to read the book myself.
No. I listened to this book over a five day period. I enjoyed taking my time listening to the chapters that I could while I was in the car or on the train going to and from work. This book took me out of my daily life experiences and put me in a world of mystery, thrills and psychic chills.
J.F. Penn is a fantastic thriller author and definitely improving her writing craft with each and every book in the series.
