Overview

CASS LEHMAN HAS A TERRIFYING GIFT... SHE SEES WHAT OTHER'S CANT... A chilling tale of a young woman cursed with supernatural powers and a grief-stricken detective who end up both an unlikely team and unwitting victims. The first novel in Melanie Casey’s paranormal crime procedural series disarms readers at every turn and interweaves contemporary small town life with references to ancient Greek classics. Cass has a type of retro-cognition. When she passes over the spot where someone died a violent death, she flashes back to the last few minutes of their life and experiences it as if she were them – seeing, smelling, hearing and feeling what they felt before they died.

About the Author

Melanie Casey was born and lives in South Australia with her two young children and her husband (who didn’t know he was marrying a writer when he walked down the aisle). After studying English Literature and Classical Studies, Melanie shifted to Law, and now works in government. A chance meeting with a highschool English teacher in the supermarket made Melanie realise that she should be doing what she’d always loved, writing! Another period of study, this time at the Professional Writing School of Adelaide’s College of the Arts ensued, helping Melanie acquire the skills she needed to put her plan into action. Hindsight is her debut novel, the first in a crime series featuring Cass Lehman and Detective Ed Dyson. The second in the series, Craven, was released in 2014. The third installment, Missing, will be released in 2015.

Great storyline, compelling characters. A crime thriller and procedural with the perfect element of paranormal. A tinsy bit rough in the very beginning, but develops quickly into a definite 5 star all the way to the end. --Books4Me

HINDSIGHT (CASS LEHMAN / DET. ED DYSON, BK 1) by MELANIE CASEY 5/1 Cass Lehman has a blessing... or a curse. If she stands where someone has died, she experiences the death as though it is happening to her. Her mother can foretell the future. And her grandmother can heal. Cass has been more or less house bound for quite a while. Whenever she leaves her house, she has to plot a course to get to wherever she is going so as not to walk or drive across an area where someone has died a violent death. Detective Dyson is investigating some women who have gone missing. It takes Cass to see what all the victims have in common, including Dyson's pregnant wife, who disappeared 2 years earlier. Now that the secret is out that the police are using a psychic, Cass is afraid the killer will be after her next ... and she's right. This is an entertaining read with a very good story premise. I really enjoyed the interaction of Cass and her family.... especially when mama wants to 'read' Cass. Dyson is a flawed character. Still missing his pregnant wife and not knowing what happened to her, has turned him into a heavy drinker. He still functions well when suffering a hangover, but his boss and his partner are watching him closely. He can be surly at times, but at the core he's a very caring man. The mystery and suspense start from the first page and endures to the last. This is the first book in a series and it looks to be a good one. Many thanks to the author / Pantera Press / Netgalley for the advanced digital copy. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

Don't buy this book. Although all the pages are listed as a hindsight and the sample has the correct text, the book you receive is actually the second in the series, Craven. I contacted both B&N and the author weeks ago and heard nothing from B&N and the author only said she'd contact her publisher. I still can't get the right book to load. What a waste of $6.50, which is more than I usually spend on ebooks. Now I own two copies of Craven that cost me $13. Amazon always responds to my inquiries in a few hours. This is ridiculous. Again, don't waste your time.
