When Cayce D’Amico goes out in search of his son Luke during a thunderstorm, the most he expect will happen is that he’ll get soaked by the rain. So when lightning strikes a tree causing a branch to fall and knock him unconscious, he already has more than he bargained for. When he wakes, however, he finds that he now receives visions about other people, notably two young girls who have recently gone missing. Because the visions are so vivid, Cayce can’t help but feel he must help them, even though no one believes him. No one, that is, besides local report Dave Newton, who has piqued Cayce’s interest as well.

I did enjoy this even though it’s a bit different that some of the other Rick R. Reed stories that I’ve read before. It’s not so much a murder mystery as the reader knows who is responsible from the beginning and sees their actions parallel to the other characters involved. But it is still very compelling, though I’d have to say it’s not really one for the weak of heart.
