Now You See Me



Now You See Me, by Tina Wainscott

by Tina Wainscott...

This was an interesting one. There's this blind woman who is slightly psychic and will sometimes connect to a kidnaped child and be able to see through their eyes. Which all seems to be connected back to when she was kidnapped when she was very young, which is also when she lost her sight.

So, a kid is snatched just before Christmas and there's a ton of similarities to her own kidnapping and she tries to help the police who of course think she's involved since she knows things she couldn't know otherwise. And she's having a hard time sorting out what she's actually seeing from what happened to her. The cop assigned to the case ends up being much more intimately involved than either of them thought at first.

It does do the weird "we've only known each other for a couple days, but we're soul-mates and let's hop into bed together thing" of which I am not a fan. But thankfully that doesn't intrude into the rest of the plot and story.

There's some really interesting stuff about conversion disorder, which I hadn't heard of before. The brain is a fascinating and weird thing!
