Walk-In Investigations: A Paranormal Detective Mystery

Walk-In Investigations: A Paranormal Detective Mystery




This isn't your Mother's channeling...

Walk-In Investigations: Streaming Sarah by Joyce Kostakis is the first in a planned series. It is a tense, gripping, genre-splicing Psychic Detective mystery; it's a must for fans of intelligent crime dramas.

Homicide Detective Katie Hanson prided herself on being an advocate for the dead. She had no idea dying would take that to an entirely new level. A near death experience has added a new skill to her crime-solving abilities... she can stream the dead. It is more than just channeling murder victim Sarah Alexander's account of her horrific murder and the murder of her two children, much more. Katie learns to stream Sarah's consciousness, her memories, her very soul.

At first, Katie thought dying was just the break she needed in closing out her cold case. As the investigation unfolds, her excitement turns to frustration. Katie quickly realizes she is dead wrong. A spirit's memory is just as flawed as the living. Katie's gut instinct is to believe Sarah, but the evidence doesn't support the testimony. In fact, it made matters worse. Now she has two suspects. Will Sarah help Katie bring the killer to justice, or will they drag in an innocent man?

'Joyce has an excellent imagination for writing an edge of your seat story that will keep you guessing from the beginning of the book clear to the last page, even with the many mystery novels available to you, you shouldn't pass up the opportunity read this one it has everything!' - Zinpea.com

'This was a wonderful book. It had twists at the end that I didn't see coming! I just sat and read the last 60 pages or more because I couldn't put it down. Looking forward to the sequel.' - Melissa Good Reads Review.

Reviewed by Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite Homicide Detective Katie Hanson was supposed to be getting married to Sam Gallagher, the District Attorney, but instead she runs away from the church and goes home. Her fiancé had set the date for their wedding on the anniversaries of her mother's suicide and her twin brother's accidental death, thinking that it would change her "dark period" into a period of happiness. Instead, it had the opposite effect. She went home and attempted suicide. Katie realized a little too late that she didn't want to die. Mentally she tried calling her friend Vicky, a psychic tarot reader. By the time help came, Katie was flat-lining and had left her body. She stood there and watched as they worked over her body, trying to force life back into it. There was no light, no tunnel, no loving family members to greet her. After two weeks of being in a comatose state, Katie finally returns to her body. But she isn't the same anymore. Now she hears voices, sees things that aren't there, and seems to be traveling to and from another universe. The messages that are coming across from the other side are somewhat confusing. As Katie adjusts to her new "gifts," it becomes apparent to her that these messages and strange occurrences enhance her ability to solve cases. Can Katie convince the Captain to let her use these gifts to solve cold cases for the Department? Before she can figure out a way to persuade him to try an experimental venture into the paranormal, her body is stolen. How is that even possible? Once she finds it, how can she retrieve it? If she can't, will she be able to help solve crimes from the other side? Reading Walk-In Investigations (A Paranormal Detective Novel) by Joyce Kostakis is an extraordinary learning experience in the paranormal world. If you are interested in string theory, parallel universes, and murder mysteries, then Walk-In Investigations is the right book for you. It is chock full of references regarding metaphysical premises including psychics, portals, and multiple universes. I was amazed that one hundred and twenty-nine pages could hold so much information and contain a decent storyline. Despite that it contains so much heavy information, I loved the fact that it was such a light read. Even though this is a fiction book, by the time I got to the end I had a much better understanding of string theory and several other concepts than I had when I began reading it. If you are new to metaphysics, then this book would be an entertaining and enjoyable way to learn about it.
