Cold As Death based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Last year T. J. Macgregor wrote Category Five about a hurricane that devastated Tango Key. I picked it up right after Katrina and Rita. It was several months before I felt comfortable reading about a deadly storm. Cold As Death is the sequel to Category Five. These two books are her finest works of fiction. Cold As Death is even better than Category Five. Mira Morales, her daughter and her grandmother can communicate with each other telepathically even from great distances. They also can read anyone they touch physically. Mira hates to be touched for that reason. In the midst of getting her bookstore back in order after the storm, Mira and FBI Agent Shep, her former lover as the book begins have to solve a crime. Will this relationship change? Strange things happen on Tango Key that have much to do about the crime and its solution. Is it good versus evil? Is Tango an integral part of an alternate universe? Are there really ghosts or are some beings/spirits in a different time/place in quantum physics? Does anything exist if we don¿t observe it? Do I exist if you don¿t observe me? Cold As Death can be read as a work of romantic fiction with a touch of the paranormal or you can find things you never knew about yourself until you have read Cold As Death.
After the Category Five hurricane destroyed the Florida Keys, psychic Mira Morales is trying to piece her life together. She has construction teams work on her home and bookstore and is also trying to get over her break-up with Shep who doesn¿t want to deal with wormholes, trips to the past, visions, ghosts, and things that go bump in the night. Mira is taking a walk trying to clear her mind when she sees the ghostly vision of a woman fleeing a house.------------ When the ghost disappears, she enters the house and finds the dead body of a maid. Paul Nichols, one of the owners of the house thinks, she killed the woman and kidnapped her son Adam but the FBI doesn¿t consider her a suspect since she has helped them many times solve cases. It is former actor Spenser Fitch who took Adam because he blames Paul, a director and his academy awarding winning wife Suki for his failure to become a well knows actor because they rejected him for the leading role in one of their pictures. Suki hires Mira to find her son and she ends up getting kidnapped and put in the same room as Adam it will take otherworldly intervention to get them out of there alive.------------- Shep gets drawn back into Mira¿s world when they work on the case together and despite his desire to never experience the paranormal again, he acknowledges that he is bound emotionally to Mira. The antagonist has killed before but he acts like a mixed up kid who is still in recovery from the trauma of being raised by a physically abusive father. COLD AS DEATH plunges the reader into an absorbing thriller that takes place on two different levels the real world and the metaphysical realm. Did I forget to mention the mermaid?----------------- Harriet Klausner
