Forensic psychologist Breeze Copens has a gift. She not only hears the truth, she also sees it. So she knows when Daryl Collins-a born-again but remorseless con jailed in Seattle for armed robbery-is lying. What she doesn't know is the identity of the little girl in a blue dress with yellow daisies who appears suddenly in her line of vision during her interview with Daryl. And Daryl isn't telling.
A heart-stopping thriller, its twists unexpected, its suspense mounting as the steely Breeze attempts to make hard evidence of her intuition, Truth Catcher sets the leggy, red-haired forensic expert on an increasingly treacherous course. It takes her eventually to Dallas, where she falls headfirst into the investigation of an unsolved murder of a four-year-old girl (in a blue dress with yellow daisies) a decade earlier. More dangerously, it puts her in the path of Daryl's half-brother, a creepy drug lord who goes by the name of Trash.
Recommended for the listener with nerves of steel, this audiobook chronicles the thrilling adventures of forensic psychologist Breeze Copen. Breeze is a champion at what she does - she has unusual psychic abilities. But her intuitions don't keep her from danger - in fact, she attracts danger. Pretty soon after she takes on the case of a con artist in jail for armed robbery, she's whisked into hair-raising, heart stopping adventure involving a dead girl, a drug lord, and a series of difficult decisions. Dara Brown uses her raspy, sleepy voice to contrast with the plot's sinister allure. Simultaneously soothed by Brown's voice and disturbed by Salter's prose, this audiobook is definitely a ride not to be missed.
"Fascinating.... Handles this touchy material with integrity, tugging on our hearts even as she ties our nerves in knots. Salter writes with chilling authority." (Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review)
"Salter has graced her protagonist with a compelling and likeable voice in the tradition of Patricia Cornwell." (Library Journal)
"An impressive achievement." (Dick Adler, Chicago Tribune)
