Gifted with an uncanny sense about people, psychologist Miri Fox works as an off and on profiler for the police. So when they think they've finally nailed the "Wedding Killer," she agrees to check him out, using her gift to discover the truth.
But the suspect, Quentin Black, isn't anything like Miri expects. He claims to be hunting the killer too, although for reasons of his own, and the longer Miri talks to him, the more determined she becomes to uncover his secrets.
When he confronts her about the nature of her peculiar "insight," Miri gets pulled into Black's bizarre world and embroiled in a game of cat and mouse with a deadly killer--who still might be Black himself. Worse, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to Black, a complication she doesn't need with a best friend who's a homicide cop and her boyfriend in intelligence. Can Miriam see a way out or is her future covered in Black?
A paranormal mystery romance, introducing brilliant, dangerous, and otherworldly psychic detective, Quentin Black.
What I liked: I picked up Black in White for $0.99 on Amazon and was into the story right away. Why? Because it was different and boy, it gets even more distinct as the story moves along.
Miri has an exceptional gift when it comes to "reading" people but only she knows her gift just doesn't seem normal but she just takes each day as she can. Until, that is, she gets pulled into a case by a good friend who thinks he's found a serial killer. Enter Quentin Black.
When the cops can't get Quentin to talk they ask Miri to take a turn. She gets a response all right, just one she never expected. In addition she finds herself drawn to Quentin in a strange way. It's strange for sure as he seems to have a similar gift as Miri along with other talents.
What I didn't like: The characters are still very under-developed and seem a bit two dimensional and somewhat immature. But I have hopes for all of them as with a first book, the author has so much work to capture and hold a reader's attention.
Black in White is a pretty good read for the first in the series and the price was right but I'm intrigued enough to try the second in the series and it's on my Kindle already.
