What if.No One Believed You?
Small-town single mom Cass D'Angelo's life changes when a thunderstorm sweeps into her small Ohio River town. Cass must venture out in it to hunt for her son, seven-year-old Max. Lightning strikes a tree near her and a branch to the head knocks her unconscious. When Cass awakens a couple days later, she sees into the deepest secrets of those around her. Worse, some teenage girls have gone missing, and Cass sees their grisly fates.
The discovery opens the door to a whole new life. The police are suspicious. The press wants to make her a celebrity. And the killers are desperate to know how she found their carefully concealed grave. Cass finds an ally in Dani Westwood, a local reporter. The two women begin to probe into the disappearances/murders and start to forge a romance. When Cass's little boy, Max, disappears, Cass must race against the clock to find him...before it's too late.
"Horror fiction's most original voice knows how to spin a tale that makes a reader double check the door locks and windows. It is at once smart and twisted."
~NY Times Bestselling Author Gregg Olsen
"Rick R. Reed moves to the head of the graveyard with this bone-chilling story of a reluctant psychic, a pair of maniacal killers, and the slaughter of innocence. Fiendishly good!"

Summitville is the typical All-American small town: a hard-working populace, local diner with great burgers & fries, friendly faces on every street. That¿s why it surprises everyone when local youth begin to disappear without a trace the sudden emergence of an evil presence among them quickly alarms the unsuspecting townfolk and disrupts the burg¿s overall sense of calm and peace. One of those unsuspecting folk: Cass D¿Angelo, diligent single mother struggling to provide for her seven year-old son, Max. When Max wanders away from home one night, Cass ventures out to retrieve him, but the sudden onset of a raging thunderstorm soon lands her in the hospital ¿ thanks to a blow to the head from a tree branch struck by lightning, rendering her unconscious. When she awakens, Cass becomes aware of a new gift: the ability to receive visions of people, places, and things, combined to form deadly scenarios of what could be. Shortly thereafter, her visions begin to assist in the discovery of the whereabouts of the abducted children however, when her newfound ability draws the unwanted attention of the sinister parties responsible for the abductions, Cass is left to wonder if the visions are less a blessing and more a curse ¿ especially when they ultimately endanger both her and Max¿s lives. A superb storyteller of suspenseful tales, Rick Reed delivers again with Deadly Vision. In what has become his signature, unique style, Reed presents a fast-paced, action-packed page-turner, and even manages to poke subtle fun at small-town politics along the way. Interweaving drama, wit, and intrigue, Deadly Vision is an entertaining read from a proven scribe with increasingly impressive literary credentials. An engaging tome, Deadly Vision will surely satisfy Reed¿s expansive base of readers, and is likely to add quite a few more names to the bunch.Was this review helpful?
