    Eight books in and still fresh and going strong and true to char

    Eight books in and still fresh and going strong and true to characters in earlier books. Synopsis on this site accurate. Dutch and Abby not as angst ridden and quarrelsome. Lotta action. Lots happening on the personal side that makes it hard to review without spoilers. Just an enjoyable read.

    It was okay

    I love the Psychic Eye Series. I have read all the books in the series and was anxious to start A Glimpse of Evil. However, this book did not do it for me. The is like an introduction into the characters lives in Austin, TX and a major case is thrown into the mix. The excitement was not there like in the other 7 books. The book was also like a set up for the follow-up book coming out June/July 2011! This book is an okay read to follow up on your favorite characters, but it was not the best in the series.

    I Also Recommend:

    The Best of the Abby Cooper Psychic Eye books to date!

    I have been very lucky to be a fan of Victoria Laurie from her first book. Her writing style is so naturally written, you are immediately drawn into the stories.
    Originally set around the Detroit suburbs, this latest in the series is full of surprises, the least bit is a relocation to Ms. Laurie's new home, Austin Texas. Ms. Laurie personally had lived in the Boston area and moved to Austin a few yests ago.
    The plot and the developements before Abby Cooper, are most relevant and the best to date of the series. Dutch, Abby's boyfriend, had been offered a promotion in the Austin area and he and Abby with their two pups make a new home there. Also coming down is Abby's friend and office mate, Candice. She is a private investigator, and with the economy especially taking a hit in the Detroit area, she makes the move to the South to continue her career and also works well with Abby in her endeavors.
    While I love all of Ms. Laurie's books, A Glimpse of Evil is the best of the series to date. It introduces Abby to not only to her fellow FBI workers - she is a civil member of the FBI team, giving her special guidence to the Cold Case Files, as well as doing her part to help Candice's love life with Dutch's boss Brice, who is coincientally Dutch's boss.
    There is more intense action in this book than in previous series and it makes you so concerned you are on the edge of your seat. Ms. Laurie's talent is the ability to put you right into the action, and she is masterful doing that, not only in this series, but everything she writes.
    I am writing my first novel, (although have been featured in short story and poetry anthologies), so I have learned much about writing style from Ms. Laurie.
    Strong storyline, storn cast of characters and fine writing - what more can a fan of the paranormal can ask for?
    Wonderful things happen to the characters in this book, and I for one, cannot wait for the next in the series.
    Laurie's Abby Cooper is a great character, and she is a wonderful young lady, and most talented in her intuitive work. I've said this before, and will keep saying this until it is not relevant - not only do you get a great story to read, but you also can find what it is to look in the mind of the psychic, Hard work, but interesting to see the process and the sweetness Abby helps her coworkers.
    Abby is a civil employee of the FBI, and gets to work closely with Dutch and a new team of FBI employees. The stories Ms. Laurie and team she works will are acceptional but scepts, but soon realize Abby and her crew are indeed the real deal.
    Victoria Laurie is like that too - talented and gracious enough to let us learn what it is like to have the God given talent of being psychic and wanting to understand the hows and whys of that process.
    Keep 'em coming, Ms. Laurie! Can't wait for this sequel, as well as your other series!
    A great read you will enjoy.

    Better? You Bet! Ms. Laurie just keeps on getting better.

    I just finished reading this novel and it is her best yet. Ms. Laurie just keeps on getting better and better. She gives explanations of psychic ability; how it works, how to beef up one's own intuition and all of this from her own background. The ending is excellent, the beginning is great and the middle? Well, it's first rate. I live in the desert and am fully aware of the moving water hazzard but you'll never guess what happens next - not completely anyway even if your intuition is functioning. I think her characters are realistic and I can't say enough about her abiliie as a writer. But, before you read this one, make sure you have read Doom with a View first. If you've not read Ms. Lauries Psychic Eye series, start with the first one and read on through. Great summer, fall, winter or spring read. Enjoy.

    delightful paranormal urban whodunit

    With the downturn in the economy, psychic Abby Cooper is losing much of her client base to the point where she cannot earn a decent living. Her live-in lover is offered a job as Assistant Agent in Charge in Austin in a separate building with agents working cold cases. Dutch's boss Brice Harrison is impressed with Abby's precognitive skills, he offers her work as a "civilian intuitive profiler"; the Feds do not employ psychics.

    They accept the positions and head to Austin where on her first day Abby applies her psychic talent, which enables the unit to solve a few cold cases in under a week. She accompanies Agent Rodriguez on a field inquiry into a car used to transport kidnapped children. They locate the vehicle and talk with the tow truck operator, but instead meet his son; he shoots Rodriguez forcing Abby to shoot him before he kills them. Internal Affairs investigates the shootings with Rodriguez and Cooper on suspension with pay. Abby continues to look at the missing children's case that she ties to the deaths of three seemingly unrelated men who are dead, but though she tries she is unable to connect the dots that would complete the puzzle.

    The "Psychic Eye Mysteries" are always a treat for paranormal urban whodunit fans. The key to this terrific series is that Victoria Laurie does not try to sell to her fans her star's skills, but instead deftly interweaves them into the story line as a powerful device that supports a much more rounded individual and plot; thus they could exist as they seem "normal" in this person and setting. Obviously Dutch and Abby are in love, but their romantic subplot provides relief, often amusing, from the seriousness of the investigations. With a strong cleverly constructed mystery, readers watch a somewhat frustrated Abby work on her own time because someone else is about to be killed.
