Overview

All Seeing Eye by Rob Thurman

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Cal Leandros novels comes a bold new supernatural thriller.

Picking up a small pink shoe from the grass forever changed young Jackson Lee’s life. Not only did its presence mean that his sister Tessa was dead—murdered and stuffed in the deep, black water of a narrow well—but the shoe itself told him so.
Tessa’s death triggers an even more horrific family massacre that, combined with this new talent he neither wants nor can handle, throws Jack’s life into a tailspin. The years quickly take him from state homes to the streets to grifting in a seedy carnival, until he finally becomes the cynical All Seeing Eye, psychic-for-hire. At last, Jackson has left his troubled past behind him and found a semblance of peace.
That is, until the government blackmails him. Helping the military contain the aftermath of a bizarre experiment gone violently wrong, everything Jackson knows about himself will change just as suddenly as it did with his little sister’s shoe.
And while change is constant...It’s never for the better.

It isn't often that I run across a book that is such a great read that I want to keep it so I can reread it over and over again.This is one of them. The main characters are intriguing, the dialogue well-crafted, and the plot engrossing and packed with great twists at the end that I truly never saw coming. The only complaint I had was I wanted MORE MORE MORE. Where's the next book in the series? I'm already dying to read it. I LOVED this book. It is even better than the Leandros brothers series. Stop reading if you don't want any whiffs of the plot: Authors are told never to kill a child in a book. It turns off a lot of readers. So, I wondered when at the start of the book, the main character finds his five-year-old sister murdered. Do not be turned off by this. This winds up shaping his whole life in important ways. Read the book to the very end. It is a necessary and ultimately highly satisfying thread to the story.

This has to be one of my all-time favorite books. I don't often pay this much for a nook book but I had to have a digital copy to keep my hard copy from falling apart from all the rereading. I really hope Thurman revisits this world one day.

Reviewed by Marissa Book provided by the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book All Seeing Eye grabbed me from the blurb and didn’t let go, even after the end of the book. Two days later, I was still going over scenes in my head, reliving the final tear-inducing, mind-blowing chapters. Jackson Lee is a man who develops psychometric powers upon the death of his younger sister. One touch of skin-to-skin or to any object and Jackson knows your past. He lives it himself in a matter of moments – all the good, the sad, and the bad. What I found exceedingly interesting was the response of his mind to sociopaths – those with no conscience or moral compass. Jackson describes it as “locking yourself in a walk-in freezer, alone. All the warmth was immediately drained out of you.” In the extreme is what he gets from his dog – happy thoughts of running in fields, naps in the sunshine, and treats. Even with his past – his sister and mother murdered, killing his stepfather, separated from his other sister and put into a state-run home, then ending up as a sham psychic in a carnival – Jack comes out okay. He is honest and moral. He tries to do right by his sister and his old friend. The problem is, nothing is within his control and the more he tries, the worse things seem to get. I found the shifts in the ether fascinating. The idea that horrific murders can be relived again and again, using live people who happen to be in the same place, to carry out actual murders is fascinating if at the same time terrifying. This is not quite the same as imprint ghosts destined to repeat their murder in an endless ethereal loop. It sends shivers up and down my spine to think that murders could be repeated at any time, anywhere, by anyone. And that is what makes this such a good book. I have to admit I fell a little bit in love with Thurman after reading the author bio on the inside back cover. He not only loves dogs but he rescues them from the local pound. As an animal lover, I’m all over him. Er, it… this. The rescuing. Then I found out Rob is actually Robyn. *sigh* Sorry, Rob. But I still love the dog rescuing and the writing.

You know how when the author of your favorite series writes a book outside of that series so you don't want to like it cuz you just want to keep reading more of the other series?  That's how I was with this book, which is totally a messed up way of thinking, but hey, I'm a tad messed up. But, of course I was going to read it anyway, because it's written by Rob Effin Thurman. Yes, her middle name is Effin.  Yes, in my head I'm thinking a different word that begins with F, but I'm trying to be a good example and not say that, and no, it's not THAT word. My F-bombs are interchangeable, depending on my mood. Sometimes it's Frakin when I'm being a geek/nerd who wishes she were at ComicCon. It's Fetchin when I de-age and embrace my inner teen self's upbringing in the west, and sometimes it's Freakin or Frickin when I just want to get the point across without being crass.  So back to Robyn Effin Thurman. She's a freakin genius. I didn't want to like All Seeing Eye, but that lasted all of 5 pages when Jackson Lee's sarcastic nature completely won me over. What a character!  And the ending... RET, once again, takes it in a different unexpected direction, leaving the best reveals for last. Love it. Love all the weird twists and turns of her creative, impossible to second guess brain.  And...and...was that Ariel?

Even though I generally do not tolerate government conspiracies (or any other conspiracy tale) well, this one is truly engrossing, well plotted and not too much of the oh come on stuff. Given the ending if this is planned as a series, it's going to have to go some interesting directions.

Great new character. Very dark but Rob Thurman certainly knows how to make dark sexy. Very intriguing character and I hope more is coming.

It is no surprise to me that this book was awesome. All of Ms Turman's books are awesome. This story had great characters, lots of snark, an intriguing plot, suspense, action--it had it all. I agree with another reviewer that Jackson was a lot like Cal--all that attitude but with kindness at heart. I have no doubt that there will many more great novels from this author and I look forward to reading them all. Thanks for the great getaway!
