Abby Cooper and her boyfriend Dutch Rivers have both taken jobs with the FBI and moved to Austin, Texas. As a psychic Abby's new job involves her looking at cold cases and using her powers of intuition to try and solve them - something that doesn't thrill the other FBI investigators. Abby¿s not one to back away from a challenge and soon solves several cold cases. But trouble seems to follow Abby around, and soon she's in trouble with the FBI. Not only that, but she's convinced several cold cases are linked to each other and begins to investigate these cases with the help of her friend Candice. Little do they realize a killer is closer to them than they know.¿A Glimpse of Evil¿ is another nice entry in Victoria Laurie's Psychic Eye mystery series. Laurie finds a way to reinvent the series with each and every book and this one is no different. The idea to have Abby work on cold cases for the FBI is a brilliant one and as always it is fun to watch as Abby uses her ¿crew¿ to do her stuff. The cases she works on are sad ones and while the book is fiction, the cases are all too real. The dynamics of Abby working closely with the FBI agents are well done and it was interesting to read as Abby shows the agents how to get in touch with their intuition. The series isn't designed to have readers try to figure out whodunit, but instead sit back and marvel as Abby does her stuff. One thing that makes this series work so well is Abby's relationship with Dutch and her friends and Laurie perhaps cheats a bit by having all of Abby's friends either move to Texas or think about it but is still nice to see characters like Dave and Milo again. There is an underlying sense of danger throughout the book and a doozy of a plot twist that makes this book worth reading. While the plot is neatly wrapped up in this book, Laurie gives a glimpse of what the next book will be and I'm already looking forward to reading it.¿A Glimpse of Evil¿ is another winner by Victoria Laurie.

'Psychic Eye' Abby Cooper starts her new job as a civilian profiler for the FBI. She starts looking into boxes of cold case files from all over Texas, and several kinds of trouble find her quickly.The thing I love about these books is that it's not just 'another day, another mystery'. The protagonist is always changing things up, doing something a bit different, going somewhere new, encountering unexpected scenarios and motives. There's also a splendid combination of mystery, suspense, drama, and humor. Book eight is another excellent addition to the series and the end-of-book preview for number nine already has me eager to read it!

A Glimpse of Evil takes us into the hearts and minds of the three main characters, Abby, Dutch, and Candace. In this latest adventure, it's a deeper look into their relationship connections, along with their crime fighting. Abby and Dutch arrive in Texas looking forward to their new jobs, but also the new life they will be building together. Candace, having already settled in Texas, greets them both with open arms, and a hand full of her new love interest. I'm not going to name Candace's new boy toy because I don't want to spoil the surprise for you! Abby was not at all expecting her new job as an FBI Profiler to consist of pushing papers. When she arrives in the office, she is instructed to "audit" cold case files to see which ones are viable to continue with and which ones are not. Abby of course is, yet again, met with non-believers of her abilities in the office and will not be taken seriously until she "proves" herself to them. People are such jerks sometimes! Abby turns the table on her assignment and creates her own audit system, which she is then brought into Agent Harrison's office to explain. After a lengthy discussion about the new audit, Harrison agrees, and Dutch and Abby proceed to close three cases on their first day! Candace is setting up camp as well, with a new condo, car, and applying for her P.I. license for Texas. She is happy as a clam with her new bow until one thing leads to another and the fighting begins! Abby and Dutch face some shaky ground as well that has Dutch really taking stock of his life and his future with Abby. Having everyone in turmoil throughout the book had me very unsure of how things would turn out! Abby and Dutch are so meant for each other, I was rooting for them big time! Listening to one conversation between Abby and Dutch, that brought Dutch to tears, had me in tears! Getting everyone to open up about their true feelings and get on the same page felt like it was never going to happen, and all of this while they are working cases that have one of them pointing a gun straight at Abby once again. This book has been such an eye opener for me on how the relationship between the characters has evolved since this series started. I love the direction the books have taken everyone, especially Abby. You will not be disappointed with the surprise nuggets in this chapter, and there are more than one ;) Narrator Review: This is eight audiobooks now for me, same series, same narrator and Elizabeth Michaels is Abby Cooper! I can't imagine anyone else, nor do I want to. Elizabeth fits the bill perfectly and I wouldn't change her for the world! Great job Elizabeth!!

Eight books in and still fresh and going strong and true to characters in earlier books. Synopsis on this site accurate. Dutch and Abby not as angst ridden and quarrelsome. Lotta action. Lots happening on the personal side that makes it hard to review without spoilers. Just an enjoyable read.

Discovered this series on a recommendation from a Shack employee. I just devoured every one of them and can hardly wait for more. Who knew I would like the paranormal?!?!?!
