Taut, fascinating, and propulsive… A stunner.
High intrigue, the characters’ realistically portrayed emotional dilemmas, and breakneck pacing elevate this supernatural mystery above the ordinary, the first in the Redstone Chronicles by Bishop. The caseload is heavy for Mason Redstone, the former Texas Ranger and now private investigator. When Trick Monroe, Mason’s estranged partner, comes looking for Mason’s help to solve a murder, the latter reluctantly agrees, unaware of the danger ahead. The expert pacing and high suspense stand out, but more memorable are the vividly developed major and minor characters. The affable but troubled Mason is credible as both a medium and a private detective, and the large cast of diverse characters is realistic. Tension stays high, with nonstop twists and new revelations, and Bishop smoothly blends the sleuthing with the characters’ individual struggles. The supernatural elements are convincing, and the story’s explosive ending provides a neat twist that shocks and satisfies at once. Both Paranormal suspense fans and traditional mystery lovers will eagerly await Bishop’s next.
