This isn’t an ideal way to continue a series if that’s what was intended Okay back to the story Staci was a very likeable and flawed heroine her only serious flaw being a severely unhealthy condition where a previous car accident has destroyed much of her agility and freedom of movement Despite this setback Staci forges on using her psychic gift to help solve a crime Although like Staci’s mother who lives with her I was a little bummed out that she didn’t try to gain much independence Their ongoing bickering was fun to read but it’s not a life I can imagine for herThe chapter in which Staci dredges up a very personal account in the past of the FBI agent was excellent I could feel the emotion of the FBI agent as he listenedHaving expressed my disappointment with the ending I now turn to other potential plot holes Staci’s said to have great difficulty walking yet a crucial moment in the book has her climbing down a ladder into a giant sewage pipe and then wading along debris strewn water How can she physically do this? And why did she do something so dangerous without telling people where she was? Also why is the state police or city police not handling the murder investigations I would have thought that would be within their jurisdiction This could be solved simply by changing the name of the agency Finally I thought that the numerology that constituted an important clue was too far removed from her psychic powers; she senses smell touch sight sound and taste In contrast numerology doesn’t seem concrete and it would be derived from an artificial intelligence paranormal force and developed like a brain teaser waiting to be solved The famous song makes sense because the name of the highways could be remembered through a song that is so familiar that it’s embedded in your consciousness Another frustrating plot line was the repeated line that no matter what Staci found out everyone else felt there was no breakthrough It’s almost like they felt she was of no use and in fact it’s a harsh way to treat the main character of the book and her relevance to the story It would have been nice if the clues she found led to clues rather than depend on her visions again If her visions stopped at some point then the case wouldn’t get solved so why not use detective skills to put together what you have so far But this was a page turner for me I loved reading it It was just a little hard to go back after reading it and wonder what happened Also the title Dual Sight is not spot on Dual Sight would refer to looking at one thing in two different ways but here it was a special ability so I felt the title robbed the book of some of its magic and wonder I would have thought of a title such as Premonitions A major Hollywood movie did this well with its many hired copywriters thinking up the title The Sixth Sense Dual Sight is an odd and intriguing psychic who dunnit The time period is a little hard to pin down; in some ways it feels like it must be set in the present day but in others it feels strangely anachronistic At one point one of the protagonists mentions there being girlie mags in an auto shop waiting room and I’m pretty sure that hasn’t been an acceptable practice in at least thirty years –if not longer There’s also the oddly formal way the characters interact with each otherThe story itself is gripping fare a woman finds herself suddenly gifted with uncanny knowledge and uses it to assist in the hunt for a serial killer The author has a knack for dialogue and detailed description and the plot moves along at a good paceThe downside is that the writing is rather dry and overly descriptive What could have been said in one sentence takes up a whole paragraphs and this unnecessarily pads out an otherwise good story Then there’s the matter of the ending The book ends abruptly just as Staci and the FBI seemed to be closing in on the killer Neither the main conflict or any of the minor subplots have been resolved Even for a book split into two or volumes the conclusion to Volume One was surprisingly abrupt Dual Sight has a lot to recommend it Staci is a relatably flawed character as are the FBI agents I wanted to know what happened to them in the end almost as much as I wanted to see how they caught the killer and that made the ending all the frustratingThis was a tough story to rate because there were a lot of things I enjoyed about it and with some good editing I think it could be a great read 35 stars rounded up to 4
