Nicole Baker is a quiet girl - the type of person who is seldom noticed by anyone. That is until one day she discovers she has the unique ability to see images move on photographs. At first, she uses her ability to entertain friends at parties and work. Then senior detective Paul Hammond learns of her ability and enlists her help in a case of unsolved murders that he has not been able to make any headway on.
Carl Kadner, a rookie reporter with the local paper is investigating the murders as well. And he learns what it takes to be the kind of reporter he wants to be when he puts himself in danger for the sake of the story. It is only when Carl, Nicole and Detective Hammond pool their resources that things start making sense.
Detective Paul is a likable and relatable character. My first impression of him was that he was a curmudgeon but that quickly passed. It was just due to aging that Paul was a bit rough around the edges. Yet, once I did really get familiar with him, he was a likable guy. Additionally, he is good at his job. Nicole was also likable. Plus, the abilities that she possessed were intriguing. Her ability really came in handy with helping to solve the case. Yet, when it came to Carl; I have to say that I almost forgot about him. He was kind of nonexistent for the first half of the story. The second half Carl came out stronger.
Due to the likeability that I had with the characters and the fact that the killer had a strong presence as well in the story, this was a really good read. It was also a quick read. No real down time for me. The killings were gruesome but not so much detail was spent that the weak at heart would still like this book. There is even some romance that budded between Paul and Nicole. Again, not a lot of details were spent on their romance as to not distract from the overall story. This book is a recommended read. I would read more books from this author.
