Book Review: Double Visions by Matt Drabble

Double Visions
by Matt Drabble
Genre: Horror

It has been 8 years since the country cowered in fear as the serial killer christened The Crucifier wreaked bloody havoc.
Jane Parkes had always considered her ability a fine line between a gift and a curse. She calls it The Shadow World, a place where she can see through the eyes of killers and help bring them to justice.

Her desperation to prove herself led to a basement confrontation that she wasn’t prepared for. As a result the Detective that had allowed her to work on the case lay dead alongside the killer.

She put away her ability to see inside the minds of monsters for 8 long years, but now someone else has taken up The Crucifiers’ mantle. Someone is killing again, only this time The Shadow World is a two way street and he wants to play.
Sucked into a desperate race for survival Jane is going to learn that sometimes when you stare into the darkness, someone stares back.

My Review

He's done it again! Matt Drabble has written a suspenseful story that has you gripping the edge of your seat while flipping through each page. Double Visions was a bit different read for me than Drabble's previous works, and it was just as fulfilling. The growth of his writing is awesome. The plot revolves around a psychic, police officer, and killer. The trio have been connected for years through the police officer's father who was murdered while attempting to solve a serial case. Jane (our psychic) receives snippets of the killer's movement and unbelievably, he can bounce into her mind as well. This isn't your classic "whodunit?” book. It's full of rage, desperation, and a complex cast of characters that leaves you guessing who the murderer is until the very end.
