Title: Stealing Shadows
Series: Special Crimes Unit #1
Author: Kay Hooper

What if you can enter a madman's cruel mind as he plans his vicious crimes?

What if you can see the terrified face of his prey as he moves in for the kill -- but you can't stop his frenzy once he strikes?

Psychic Cassie Neill helps the L.A. police catch killers -- until she makes a terrible mistake and an innocent child dies. Cassie flees to a small North Carolina town, hoping that a quiet life will silence the voices that invade her unwilling mind. But Cassie's abilities know few boundaries. And she's become certain -- as no one else can be -- that a murderer is stalking Ryan's Bluff.

It's his fury that Cassie senses first, then his foul thoughts and perverse excitement. Yet she doesn't know who he is or where he will strike. The sheriff won't even listen to her -- until the first body is found exactly where and how she predicted. Now a suspect herself, she races desperately to unmask the killer in the only way she knows: by entering his twisted mind. Her every step is loaded with fear and uncertainty... because if he senses her within him, he'll trap her there, so deep she'll never find her way out.


My friend-swap partner picked this book for me, so I decided to give it a try. It begins with Cassie running away from things in her past, but it seems the past has caught up with her. 

After moving into a new town, she gets insight about a murder fixing to take place, the problem is that it's not just one person who will be killed, but many. Cassie will do what she can to inform the local sheriff and his best friend Ben. However, that doesn't turn out at all like Cassie thought it would. 

Now, she must use her gifts to help them before it is too late, but there may be something deeper going on than anyone could guess. 

This book was pretty interesting. It had a great plot line, with lots of twists and turns that made it very enjoyable. 

But, I really didn't like Cassie all that much. She really annoyed me most of the book, and I was a little frustrated with how the relationship between herself and Ben progressed. 

Other than that I liked this story, and how it had different point of views, and a little bit more in it than just the main story line.
