Review @AuthorJasParent - Hearing Evil by Jason Parent (Cycle of Evil #2)

Hearing Evil
Cycle of Evil #2
by Jason Parent

Goodreads blurb:  Michael Turcotte wants nothing to do with his so-called gift—the ability to see other people’s fates simply by touching them. Michael decides to spend his summer searching for answers about his past. He can’t rest without the sounds of forgotten tragedy echoing through his dreams, but reconstructing his memories will come with a whole new set of problems even he can’t foresee.

Detective Samantha Reilly has always looked out for Michael, but now that she’s taken him into her home, she fears her maternal instincts are lacking. When a brutal gang sets off a chain reaction of crimes, Sam struggles to choose between the two most important things in her life: her job and her new foster son. Fate intervenes when Michael is kidnapped, forcing her two roles to collide.

As Michael’s past meets Sam’s present, their bond will be tested while a city crumbles around them. They’ll need all their skills and a lot of luck in order to survive. 

About the Author:  In his head, Jason Parent lives in many places, but in the real world, he calls New England his home. The region offers an abundance of settings for his writing and many wonderful places in which to write them. He currently resides in Southeastern Massachusetts with his cuddly corgi named Calypso.

In a prior life, Jason spent most of his time in front of a judge . . . as a civil litigator. When he finally tired of Latin phrases no one knew how to pronounce and explaining to people that real lawsuits are not started, tried and finalized within the 60-minute timeframe they see on TV (it's harassing the witness; no one throws vicious woodland creatures at them), he traded in his cheap suits for flip flops and designer stubble. The flops got repossessed the next day, and he's back in the legal field . . . sorta. But that's another story.

When he's not working, Jason likes to kayak, catch a movie, travel any place that will let him enter, and play just about any sport (except that ball tied to the pole thing where you basically just whack the ball until it twists into a knot or takes somebody's head off - he misses the appeal). And read and write, of course. He does that too sometimes.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I want to add this to my library in the future!

The cover is intense and grabs your attention!

This is the 2nd book in the series, and I would recommend reading the books in order.  You will want to know what happened previously especially with the other kids.  This is for adults due to the violence.

Michael and Detective Reilly are back as the main characters in this book.  Michael has questions about his past and family.  Sam is trying to protect him as always.  Bad things start happening all over town and starting with the court house.  Sam has a bad feeling.  Sam has a lot of trouble, and Michael is a part of it.  This book definitely gives you some heebie jeebie moments throughout, and it kept me guessing what was going to happen next!  And it always surprised me.  I really got hooked on Sam and Michael’s story!  Of course by the end there were more questions, so I need / want to read the next book to see what happens next!

I highly recommend to anyone who likes mystery, suspense, thrillers with some paranormal, and tons of action!  I couldn’t put this book down!

Interested in reading???
